Valerie & Marty ~ Hindu Wedding @ Westin Westminster

colorado indian wedding ceremony hindu westin westminster colorado

Marty & Valerie are the kind of people who exude a joy that is infectious and vibrant. Expressive. And fun. So. Much. Fun. They are sweet and funny, and so clearly adore each other. Their Colorado destination wedding at the Westin Westminster was a blending of families and cultures and traditions – a perfect reflection of them. Their personalities and backgrounds were infused into every aspect of their wedding day, from the multiple wedding outfits (Indian and western), to the multiple priests (Hindu and Christian), to the multitudinous wedding party (20!). And lest I forget: a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle wedding cake. Perfect. :) A few favorites..

Last week I posted Valerie’s Colorado bridal mehndi on the blog.. but here are a few wedding day getting ready moments..

Colorado Bridal Henna ~ Valerie’s Wedding Mehndi

colorado indian wedding bridal mehndi hennaBefore I launch into all the fabulousness from Valerie and Marty’s wedding day at the Westin Westminster, I have to backtrack.. to the very beginning stages of the bridal prep. Because you know me, I love the details. The little things. And the bridal henna is one of my favorite details of all – it’s just so beautiful and intricate. Anita at Hummingbird Henna Design is incredible at the art of mehndi and it was such a pleasure watching her work her magic. I just loved being there to capture these quiet moments with Valerie..colorado indian wedding bridal henna mehndicolorado bridal mehndi westin indian wedding ceremony

Sara & Braylen’s wedding ~ The Westin Westminster

I’ve been so excited to share Sara and Braylen’s wedding, which took place earlier this month at the Westin Westminster. This was a wedding that had all the elements that make up an incredible day – it was lovely and elegant. Emotional. Gorgeous weather. An even more gorgeous couple. Incredible decor. To-die-for shoes. And a yellow bow tie. And argyle socks. But most importantly, Sara and Braylen are absolutely perfect for each other, and the entire event was a perfect reflection of that.

I just love their color palate of yellow and gray and how they infused their sense of style into all the details of the wedding – simply stunning.

Sara & Braylen’s wedding ~ The Westin, Westminster Colorado

I am officially behind on blogging. And that, my friends, seems to be a trend that occurs a little more regularly this time of year, when wedding season hits full force. So for today, just a peek from Sara & Braylen’s incredibly gorgeous wedding last weekend at The Westin in Westminster. So many amazing details at this wedding (and you all know that I’m a total sucker for the details!) – loved the color palate of yellow and gray, with stunning silver dresses for the bridesmaids, and the bow ties & argyle socks for the guys, and her to-die-for shoes – yes, PLEASE.  Congratulations, you two – hope you are having a fabulous honeymoon! Here’s just a little tease :)

Stay tuned for lots more blog posts ahead.. including more from Sara and Braylen, an incredible colorado sunset engagement session, the complete blog post from Erin & Phil’s wedding at The Club at Flying Horse, children’s portrait sessions, and more!
