Any day in Breckenridge is amazing, but it is always special to get to watch two people who so clearly love each other tie the knot surrounding by the stunning beauty of the colorado mountains. I am so glad I was able to share Tracie & Micah’s wedding with even more of the world through the online wedding magazine Luxe Mountain Weddings. The do an amazing job of compiling some of the best details and gorgeous mountain weddings. Head on over to their blog to check out the post. You can also take a look at the whole wedding here in my blog post.
Rachel and Dave were married at Evan’s Chapel on the University of Denver (DU)’s campus in November. The weather held up beautifully! You never can tell what it will be like that 2nd/3rd week in Denver. That’s usually about the time the first snow hits. I’ve shot at the chapel a few times before, but we really lucked out with some amazing light streaming through the beautiful stained glass windows in the evening. Rachel, amazingly pulled the wedding together in just a few short months! We started out the day with the amazing Cassie Garza doing makeup and the girls from Altitude Salon doing the bridal party’s hair. The girls had a great time hanging out and drinking mimosas. I’m just putting up a handful of photos for now, more coming soon! Thanks so much to my lovely assistant Savannah for helping through the day!
Thanks so much to Chris for second shooting the ceremony with me and to Savannah Chandler for assisting throughout the day.
Robin and Aaron had a small mid-day wedding at the Evergreen Lakehouse in Evergreen in August. We were lucky enough to get a little bit of cloud cover. These two, just wanted a nice little ceremony by the lake, officiated by Aaron’s grandfather. They had champagne and cookies with their guests and played a few lawn games during the reception. It was such a nice, relaxing day. Congrats to Aaron and Robin!
Here is just a handfull for a sneak peak from Tina & Jake’s wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens – Chatfield. These two are so cute together. Tina hates being the center of attention, but Jake and I loosened her up at our mini engagement session. She loved the photos so much from it that she was much more comfortable in front of the camera for the wedding. The day started out pretty well, I left my house in complete sunshine. The sky turned dark and lighting was flashing in the distance as I neared Littleton…and unlike anything I’ve ever seen in Colorado, it poured all the rest of the day. We snuck the first look in right by the barn and then it rained, so every portrait we took was of them in the doorway and under the overhang. Tina decided that instead of transforming the barn to get married in the meadow despite the storms. People were soaked, but so happy for these two that they all sloshed out to watch them be wed. They returned to the barn for the reception soaked but delighted.
Tina and Jake chose to see each other before the ceremony for a first look. They wanted to be able to spend plenty of time partying with their guests instead of out taking photos all through the evening. As it turned out we went straight from the ceremony to the reception without doing family portraits because it was raining so hard. (We pulled families back outside for a few quick family shots when there was a break in the downpour.)
Tina brews beer. Yup, that’s right, she’s awesome. She brewed some to be served at the wedding with custom wedding themed labels and all.
The Band! Oh the band. Not only were they in tune (the first indicator of whether I’ll like a band or not), but they played an awesome set and got the place rocking.
Be sure to head on over to Facebook and tag yourself in the photos!
