Denver Wedding Photography ~ Emily & Eric at Mile High Station

denver wedding ceremonyEmily & Eric’s November wedding rocked!! This wedding was the perfect way to finish off the 2009 wedding seasonBeautiful ceremony at Denver’s Montview Presbyterian Church followed by a reception at Mile High Station. Mile High Station was the perfect venue for such an event, with the cocktail hour on the elevated mezzanine, yummy food and dessert stations provided by Catering by Design, a photo booth provided by Booth 66, late-night pizza delivery (50+ pizzas!), and tons of wild raucous revelry. PLUS we had snow, which made the night so magical. (and yes, Emily braved the snow in her flip-flops to get a few shots outside – what a trooper!) Such a talented team of vendors contributed to the success of the evening. Huge props to Mile High Station, the staff from Catering by Design, and Fred from A Music Plus who rocked the party like no other. The gorgeous bridal bouquets and floral centerpiece arrangements were created by Liz at Fleur de Liz, and the wedding cake was crafted by Mulberries Cake Shop. Emily’s stunning dress was from the fabulous wedding dress boutique Anna Bé, her stylish hair was fashioned by the talented Andrea Hunt of Urbane Dame, and the makeup artist was Erin Black. And the entire evening was flawless, largely due to the expert coordination by the incredibly talented wedding planners CC & Paige at Colorado Wedding Company.

Denver Portrait Photographer ~ Studio Headshots

denver headshot photographyJust a few headshots from a recent portrait session at the studio.. Jojo is a classical musician (she plays the violin, viola, and piano)  and wanted some updated portraits of herself, as well as a few with her instrument. She is so natural in front of the camera – completely relaxed and at ease. I love these dramatic shots of her in front of my velvety curtain – gorgeous!

Colorado Wedding Photographer ~ Jenn & Dan at Cielo at Castle Pines

cielo wedding dance

Jenn and Dan are married!! Their wedding ceremony and reception at Cielo at Castle Pines was nothing short of amazing.   Everything came together beautifully – the gorgeous color scheme, the perfect Colorado October weather for the outdoor ceremony, the choreographed foxtrot as their first dance (they are AMAZING dancers), the tie-dyed socks for all the guys (with a tie-dyed groom’s cake as well!), plus a surprise 1950′s Roll Royce getaway vehicle at the end of the night.

If you haven’t yet had the chance to check it out, Cielo is a spectacular venue south of Denver in Castle Pines – everything about it has been designed with impeccable attention to detail, from the open spacious ballroom with fireplace and hardwood floors, to the wrought iron spiral staircase, to the expansive bridal suite (and yes, there is a man-cave downstairs for the guys.) Props to the fabulous team of vendors who worked on this event, including the ceremony officiated by Jen Badding of Lyssabeth’s Wedding Officiants, ceremony music by Michael Lancaster on accoustic guitar, the talented videography team of Lisa & Henry Mares from Mares Video Productions, bridal bouquets and floral centerpieces by Sue Kimball of Kimball Floral, cakes were designed by Denham Cakes,  Catering by Design expertly catered the entire event, and DJ Bill Carson of A #1 DJ kept the dance floor packed.

A few favorites..

Colorado Wedding Photography ~ details details

colorado wedding detailsJust a follow up post of a handful of the stunning details from Sha & Bill’s October wedding at the  Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield barn.. Such a fabulous fall color palate – I love the vintage posters that Sha used to decorate the barn walls and the accents of autumn leaves & pumpkins.

To give credit where credit is due: Debbie and her team at Save the Date Events coordinated this wedding to perfection. Invitations and stationary were designed by Julie Sandusky at JS Design, bridal bouquets and flower arrangements were created by Erin at Plum Sage Flowers, hair and makeup by Rachel at Girls and Curls, catering by Occasions by Sandy, cake by The Makery, on-site childcare by Wedding & Event Sitters by Charity, and Ken Hiatt of Quality Mobile Sound was the DJ.
