Childhood friends turned sweethearts, Shelby and Kiefer were married in Vail, CO, this summer. Their happiness was contagious! It was an absolute joy to create their Vail, CO wedding video.
From Friends to Lovers
Shelby and Kiefer have been friends since middle school! They always had a close bond and remained friends for the next decade. After graduating from college, the two realized their affection for each other was more than just a powerful friendship. Kiefer proposed four years later at the Ice Castles in Dillon, CO.
When Kiefer invited Shelby on a trip to tour the Ice Castles, she didn’t think much of it. It was only a week after her birthday, so she thought it was just part of her birthday celebrations. Kiefer made light of the horrible traffic throughout the drive and even joked about turning around and heading home. In reality, he had a detailed proposal planned. Kiefer waited at the bottom while Shelby and her sister braved the ice slide. He then led her to a more private spot and asked her to marry him. Of course, she said yes, and they spent the night in Vail with friends and family to celebrate.
Meet Me on the Mountain | A Vail, CO Wedding Video
Shelby and Kiefer’s picturesque mountaintop wedding was unforgettable. Every detail had been carefully thought out. Shelby knew just what she wanted it to look like. Her clear vision and the couple’s personalized touches made their wedding unique, like the asymmetrical altar and floral wreath above the dance floor.
Even though the celebrations were spectacular, Shelby and Kiefer will cherish the little moments the most. During the first look and the last dance, Shelby and Kiefer were able to take a deep breath and be present with each other. The dance lessons paid off; the newlyweds spent the whole night on the dancefloor.
COVID restrictions literally re-routed their honeymoon plans, so Shelby and Kiefer ended up in Italy instead of stopping in The Netherlands first. They started in Rome, traveled down to Florence, and finally ended up on the breathtaking Amalfi Coast. Along the way, they toured a vineyard in Tuscany and took a private boat trip in Positano.
When we asked the couple what it was like working with Aflatis, they shared,
“Nicole with Grace & Gather raved about Adam, and he did not disappoint. We love how cinematic his work is. Every wedding film he creates is unique to the couple and that really shows! I would 100% recommend Adam. He was such a calming presence on the wedding day. I appreciated his organization & humor!”
We were thrilled to participate in Shelby + Kiefer’s joyous union and wish them all the best!
