Donovan Pavilion Wedding – Angela + Sammy

August 31, 2016

Vail is and always will be a wonderful place to get married! For many, this adorable mountain town harbors many romantic memories. Angela and Sammy’s beautiful Donovan Pavilion Wedding was no exception. The Donovan Pavilion is tucked away in the mountain side in Vail, CO with the most beautiful reception hall complete with aspen trees all around the building.

The ceremony was at The Vail Interfaith Chapel in the walking village in Vail. Then we took a gondola up to the top of Vail Mountain to take some beautiful couple’s portraits.

Angela and Sammy met in medical school. Read their whole story here along with their engagement photos. Sammy’s family hails from Italy, while Angela’s is from the Philippines. They both have large, loving  families who were VERY happy for these two! 🙂 Enjoy!


But first—the veil in Vail! <3
