Alison & Paul ~ Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding

denver wedding botanic gardens colorado bride and groom portraitThe importance of family. This was what Alison & Paul talked about when we first met. And it struck a chord – because in the blending of their lives they are blending their families as well, and I love how they honored that. Their wedding ceremony at the Denver Botanic Gardens was a mid-day affair – surrounded by their immediate family under a canopy of trees in the Woodland Mosaic. It was lovely and personal and intimate. A captivating celebration of their love. denver botanic gardens outdoor wedding ceremony woodland mosaic solarium chuppah

Abby & Robert ~ Married! ♥

wedding country club colorado denver bride and groom lake Abby & Robert.  These two light up the world around each other and it was an absolute honor to be a part of their Denver wedding. They love each other deeply, and judging from the 20 (!) toasts at the rehearsal dinner  (plus a bunch more at the wedding) it’s evident that they are deeply loved by their friends and family too.

The day was beyond perfect – from the picturesque backdrop of the Country Club Bowling Green for the ceremony, to the tree canopy adorned with lanterns and market lights for the reception – everything dreamy and magical. And the night was wild and raucous; the band Tunisia was AMAZING! This entire event was all about celebration – there was laughter and joy and FUN. CRAZY fun.  Because really, the moment that anyone says that one of their traditions that they plan on incorporating into the reception is going to be a ‘worm dance contest’… well, you know right then and there that it is a perfect fit. ♥

A few favorites..
