Shannon & Ty ~ Chatfield Botanic Gardens Wedding

chatfield botanic gardens wedding barn and silo bride and groom portrait colorado rustic elegance I am SO excited to share this dreamy day with you. Shannon & Ty’s wedding was nothing short of incredible. These two exude the kind of delight that is contagious, you can’t help but be swept up in their joy. It was such an honor to work with them. The barn at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield was the perfect backdrop – a blend of rustic and elegant, with long farm tables with lace overlays. I loved all of the personal touches that were incorporated throughout the day, meaningful and sweet. Perfect. A few favorites..

Chatfield Botanic Gardens Wedding ~ Lauren & Rian

denver botanic gardens chatfield colorado wedding barn bride groomI have been looking forward to Lauren and Rian’s wedding for well over a year now, since the early early planning stages. From the very first phone call talking to Lauren I knew that it was a perfect fit, and working with these two has been an absolute dream every step of the way. They are wonderful people – so fun and sweet and easy going. I love how Lauren wrinkles her nose and how they make each other laugh. And I love how they completely adore each other. A few favorites..
