I literally just googled Llama puns for the title of this blog post. Why? Because Tori and Chris had llamas at their Colorado wedding, that’s why! And at a Sanctuary wedding to boot! And I think that’s just about the coolest thing ever. I did a llama styled shoot earlier this year and guess who the models were! Chris and Tori had such a great time at our styled shoot that they made sure to get llamas at their own wedding!
These two first met when Tori was 13 years old. Her older brother, CJ, was rooming with Chirs in college at Marquette University, where they also rowed crew together. Tori said she fell in love with him the first time they met! Chris, however, was 18 at the time so little Tori was left crushing from afar for years. Then, several years later, they finally started dating.
It didn’t take long for Chris to propose! In July 2017, they went to Steamboat Springs and took a hike up Mt. Werner with their golden retriever, Walter. Unbeknownst to Tori, Chris was hiking with an engagement ring, champagne, and two champagne flutes in his pack. At the top of the mountain, Chris got down on one knee and proposed. Tori says she skipped all the way down the mountain! How cute is that?
Colorado Wedding – Llama Love You Forever
Tori and Chris’s wedding day was all about having fun! They wanted to throw the best party for their family and friends. They had the mountains, gorgeous details, great food, and llamas! Everyone had a total blast and I’m pretty sure my photos prove it! I feel bad because I SERIOUSLY eliminate one more photo and I gave them 1700! That’s a crazy amount! Chris and Tori’s wedding was beautiful, it was elegant, it was romantic, it was so much fun. I swear these two did not stop smiling and laughing the whole day. It was so cute! They chose to have their Colorado wedding at Sanctuary Golf Course because they both love to play golf. It turned out that Chris used to work there too which made the venue extra special.
