Colorado Wedding Photographer ~ Sha & Bill at The Botanic Gardens at Chatfield

When I first met Sha I was immediately drawn to her & Bill’s story – and as this new chapter in their lives together begins I am so thankful to have been a part of their day. Here are just a few of my favorites from their wedding ceremony last Tuesday at Our Lady of Mount Carmel, followed by a luncheon reception at the Barn at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. Such a phenomenal day, all perfectly and seamlessly coordinated by one of my all-time favorite planners Debbie at Save the Date Events. So many wonderful vendors contributed to this event, including absolutely gorgeous invitations and stationary designed by Julie Sandusky at JS Design, stunning bridal bouquets and flower arrangements created by Erin at Plum Sage Flowers, hair and makeup by Rachel at Girls and Curls, catering by Occasions by Sandy, scrumptious cake by The Makery, on site childcare by Wedding & Event Sitters by Charity, and DJ Ken Hiatt of Quality Mobile Sound rocked the party.

Destination Wedding Photographer ~ Carrie & Dave’s Boston Wedding

022.jpgLast weekend I had the distinct pleasure of heading to Boston, Massachusetts for Dave and Carrie’s wedding. What a gorgeous time of year on the east coast ~ this little visit reminded me of how much I miss that neck of the woods. And it reminded me of how wonderful it is to be surrounded by love and family. Dave and Carrie’s rooftop wedding ceremony overlooking Boston harbor was perfectly them. Intimate. Heartfelt. Touching. What an incredible honor to be a part of such an incredible weekend.

Colorado Wedding Photographer ~ Alissa’s Trash the Dress Portrait Session

When Alissa contacted me regarding a Trash the Dress Session, I could barely contain my excitement.. You may remember their amazing wedding from last year: Colorado Wedding Photography slideshow. We got together last week at the Evergreen Lake House (the same site as her wedding reception) for a spectacular session. For those of you not familiar with the concept of ‘Trash the Dress’ the idea is this: it’s an opportunity to get amazing bridal portrait photographs without having to worry about the state of the dress. So the session can be as extreme as the client likes – and in Alissa’s case she was pretty determined to get wet. So after playing around with various props (love her red cowboy boots!) she ventured into the water.  I’ve been dying to post these, but since this was a surprise for her husband Josh, we’ve had to wait on the blog post until today, October 11th,  when they celebrate their first anniversary. So Happy Anniversary, Alissa and Josh! My warmest wishes to you both as you celebrate your first anniversary!

A follow up to my post last week about the latest edition of Premier Bride Colorado magazine.. Here is the second wedding that is currently a featured Colorado Real Weddings – Sloan and Jarrett’s amazing wedding from last June, with the ceremony at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Cherry Creek, and the reception at the Denver Country Club.
