September 11th,  2014 in the middle of the night the rain began to fall. Flood sirens went off and our intimate mountain town became isolated by the flood waters. 

 

On September 12th at 10:12am, a Lionscrest Staff member reached out to the Lyons Fire Protection District to gain an understanding of the Town's conditions. She was told to relocate their weddings. Our next event was less than than 36 hours away. Little did we know that after 19 years of weddings, the next three weeks would be some of the hardest times this family owned business would face.

 

Then, on October 1st, we received the call we were so waiting for. We were granted permission to reopen. Lionscrest Manor, which sits on top of a mountain and has it's own well water, was left relatively unaffected by the flood waters. With passes, our couples were allowed to, once again, tie the knot.

 

On October 4th, Lionscrest Manor was able to host it's first wedding. Krista, a Coloradan, was set to marry Samuel from the United Kingdom. After just over a year of planning, their dream to marry in Lyons, Colorado became a reality.

A note from Benjamin with Alive Studios...

 

Alive Studios initially met Beth and Jake at a wedding show held at
Lionscrest Manor, where they eventually choose to have the wedding.  From
the moment we met the couple, I knew working with them would be amazing.  We
choose an old abandon train yard for their engagement shoot, which turned
out to be perfect.  Beth's red hair  and the fall colors worked wonderfully,
and Jake seemed totally at home amongst the ancient trains.  It was during
this initial shoot that we started to see the magic love between Jake and
Beth.  One of two of the images made it directly to our portfolio.

 

 



Early spring storms threatened Beth's desire for an outdoor ceremony, and

Jake even volunteered to help Lionscrest Manor clear the snow if possible.  But

that wasn't necessary, as mother nature blessed the couple with a beautiful
weekend in-between two massive storms.  A sixty degree day with light winds
and beautiful sun allowed us to be outside for all of the photos, as well as
the ceremony.  Working at Lionscrest in the spring is such a delight, and as
you can see from the photos, Beth and Jake were feeling it for sure.  An
amazing ceremony with wonderful people supporting them, perfect weather, and
love everywhere!  Later, up on the bluff above the Manor, Beth and Jake
celebrated their first few moments of being married while capturing a number

of exquisite photos as the sun slid down behind the mountains.

 

Back inside for a totally rocking party, amazing food, and excellent music.

Alive Studios thoroughly enjoyed the details which Beth obviously though
about; from amazing color coordination and decorations to unique touches of
class.  A truly excellent wedding all around, and the beginning of a
wonderful life of marriage for Beth and Jake!
