I spent last week in El Chalten, Patagonia. Before arriving, my Lonely Planet guide book had warned me that El Chalten had no television, no cell service and no Wifi—no problem.
We pulled into town and I immediately lost cell service. I thought ahhhhh I am completely free! After checking in and getting settled, reality set in and I returned to the front desk just to double check on the Wifi situation (Lonely Planet does not know everything—right?). Low and behold Don Los Cerros Inn has Wifi!!!! I returned to my room with a login user, password, and a healthy dose of shame. Please see below:
I wake up early for our first trek in Patagonia! I put on my base layer (long underware) wind pants, fleece, and wind layer jacket. Next, I boot up my laptop and try to get online–just for a minute. No go. No problem 🙂 That evening, after a 4 hour hike, a dinner of red meat and amazing red wine I still find the energy to try and boot up my laptop (just to check). No go.
I wake up early to catch a boat to hike a glacier and trek through an ice cave, that because of the movement of the glacier will be gone forever in two weeks– one quick thing before I leave the room– you guessed it, I open my laptop and try to log on. No go.
Day 4, 5, 6
I have endless, at times ruthless, adventures in El Chalten, Patagonia, and oh yeah I don’t even think about opening my laptop.
No television, no cell service, no problemo!

At the end of a long day of appointments with your clients the last thing you expect them to do is ask if they can move the last meeting to a restaurant to grab some beers and brauts. I knew I lucked out with this couple but after that, I knew I struck gold. Jess and Eric were fun loving and adventurous through the entire wedding planning process. They were in it for the ride and I just loved that about them. They were married at the Ski Tip Lodge in Keystone, Colorado. Because we were in the mountains and the scenery speaks for itself, Jess wanted pretty much anything local that came out of the ground to be looked at as beautiful and in her wildflower bouquet. Bec at Bec’s Blossoms was happy to oblige. You can see from the bridesmaids photo (yes, you counted right, 10 bridesmaids) that she also wanted everyone’s dress to be different which I think turned out amazing. It was such an amazing day! Thank you to Jess and Eric for choosing us to be your mountain wedding planners! Also a big thank you goes out to Lisa at Story Lens Photography for capturing and sharing these awesome photos!

Megan and Rob got married at the Keystone Ranch in Keystone, Colorado. They picked such an amazing day to get married! With all the rain we had this summer, it was really a roll of the dice whether the day would be sunny or rainy. As you can see from the photos, this day was perfect! And what a deserving couple of such an great day. Just being a round these two just made you smile. Their love was radiating. A big thank you to Steve at Steve Tinetti Photography for these awesome wedding photos!
