Summer Lovin in Aspen

Summer Lovin in Aspen: We have now officially entered the summer season! This is a time for barbecues, pool parties, outdoor weddings, luaus, and more. These are the delightful months when our senses defrost from the harsh winter and the chilled spring. The days lengthen, the evenings linger, and we take it to the outdoors. Celebrations occur all over the world when the summer solstice arrives. Here in Aspen, the saying goes that we come for the winters but we stay for the summers. The snow-packed mountains draw us here in the cold months, but the warm days and brisk nights of summer are where we fall in love. Many of our brides and grooms would agree with this. That is why summer is our busiest time of the year at Gold Leaf. Here are our some of our favorite things about summertime: Summer Lovin' The Sunsets: That last moment of the day when the sun is hanging on for one more picture before it makes its way behind the distant peaks for the night. That’s the time of day we live for at Gold Leaf. It’s where we get the best photographs and the most memorable moments for our clients. Everyone loves a good sunset, but add a blushing bride and a lucky groom in the foreground and you have yourself an image that will last a lifetime. Summer Lovin' The Wildflowers: In the Colorado high country, a breathtaking adornment of summer is the wildflower. Packs of them can be seen almost anywhere. They’re sprinkled on the rolling meadows, situated throughout the Aspen groves, and, if the flowers are not endangered or taken from a national forest, they can be seen filling out bouquets for a bride and her bridesmaids. Summer Lovin' Extended Days: Everyone loves the long days that the summer months bring. With more sunshine, events can start later and last longer. Plus the light provides even more opportunities to capture those special moments. Summer Lovin' Fresh Fruit: A Colorado summer would not be complete without your favorite succulent fruits. Berries, peaches, pears, and mangos are officially in season! But, just like summer, these delicious drupes won’t last long so get them while you can! Summer fruits are splendid to eat on a daily basis for pure enjoyment, but they also make great desserts for events. No one can turn down a homemade peach cobbler or a luscious berry pie. It’s simply an impossible task. Summer Lovin' These are some of our favorite things about the summertime. Make sure to tell us what you like most about this season!
