Kaitlin & Kyle ~ Fort Collins Wedding

colorado wedding fort collins trolley bride and groom I have the best clients ever. EVER. I know, I know… I say that a LOT. But only because it’s true :) Kaitlin & Kyle are one of the sweetest, down-to-earth, most adorable couples. Their wedding day incorporated an eclectic blend of vintage sensibility, and a love of color and texture. And beer. And each other ♥ The ceremony at the Inn at City Park was lovely – playful and fun, heartfelt and emotional, and beautifully officiated by their friend Jackie. The decor for the reception at Avogadro’s Number included an homage to their scientific/engineering backgrounds (with tables named after famous scientists) as well as vintage toasting glasses filled with a homebrew that Kyle helped make. Everything about this day was magic, coordinated down to every last exquisite detail by Hope at The Wedding Studio. It is an incredible honor to work with such amazing people on such an amazing day – congratulations, K&K ♥

Laura & Craig ~ Allie’s Cabin Beaver Creek Mountain Wedding

beaver creek spruce saddle allies cabin mountain wedding bride and groom Laura & Craig’s Colorado destination wedding was a day full of love and laughter and raucous celebration. With the picture-perfect backdrop of the majestic mountains of Beaver Creek, their ceremony was held at the Beaver Creek Chapel followed by festivities that continued into the wee hours at Allie’s Cabin. Laura and Craig are warm and kind and SO much fun.. I just adore how they laugh and light up around each other. Perfect. ♥ A few faves..

Denver Country Club Wedding

sweet moment emotion denver country club wedding colorado bride and groom

I’ve been doling out the blog post highlights from Meg & Danny’s Denver Country Club wedding weekend – starting with the cowboy themed rehearsal dinner at Raccoon Creek Golf Course, and then a blog post about Meg’s pre-ceremony bridal preparations. And finally, today’s post: the wedding day of  Meg & Danny.

I first fell in love with this family about a year and a half ago when I photographed Meg’s sister’s  Denver Country Club wedding, so you can imagine my delight when I received the call that Meg & Danny got engaged. There’s a special place in my heart for these two – Meg & Danny are kind and sweet, warm and loving, and they surround themselves with the most amazing and supportive group of family and friends.  It has been an incredible honor to be their photographer. A few favorites..

 A glimpse during the beautiful Catholic wedding ceremony held at the Holy Ghost Church in downtown Denver.

I love the dreamy elegant decor -  from the romantic floral design created by The Perfect Petal, to the lighting and decor (with fabulous chandeliers) by T’Da Design, to the elegant cake crafted by Gateaux. The Jerry Barnett Orchestra rocked the house, keeping the dance floor packed (and this crowd can DANCE!)denver country club wedding details decor chandeliers elegant romance bouquet perfect petal anna be dressbride and groom walking on bridge at denver country club wedding colorado
