We recently traveled to Denver and met up with Sarah and Leeland.  We selected the Denver Botanical Gardens at Chatfield.  We soon found that the location was perfect for this couple.  They wanted something different, fun, energetic and full of life.  We spent a few house walking the property, playing in the hay, riding in a wagon, tossing leaves, skipping down a path, and sharing a few intimate moments.  Congratulations!

Enjoy the next few images.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…….where to begin.  We started the planning process with Katie & Jeff a little under a year ago and partnered with them in photography, planning, and flowers.  We so enjoyed the process, from colors, theme, personalization, ceremony, decorations, and most importantly Katie’s attention to all the details.  Something old  “The Stanley Hotel”,  somting new a “wedding gown”,  Something borrowed “A grandmothers pin”, and something blue “Sparkling Shoes”.   Katie worked on each and every detail from hand made gifts for the quests with “recovering from Katie & Jeff” door tags, name cards, menus, invitations, signature drinks, gift cards, and a personalized snowboard (thanks Jeff’s) as a guest book.    Garden roses and queen ann’s lace accented the vintage look and took the flowers and event back in time,  a ceremony hosted by Leon Littlebird (simply amazing),  topiaries tall with banners, a photo booth to party the night away, music for dancing, and more fun than anyone could handle. We have have to say,  Cheers!!! to Jeff for the most fun, amazing, and unique exit from the ceremony…..boys carry the lady down the isle.  Thanks for letting us be apart your amazing wedding, getting to know you, and much love to both of you.

Huge thanks to Crystal Sutherland, Daniel & Gesyka Burkard, and the staff at the Stanley.  An amazing event and much thanks to all of you.

Every once in a while we capture a shot that takes an everyday wedding detail and freezes the moment in time.   This image was taken while riding in the front of a carriage on the way to a  location shoot with a bride and groom.    If find you are at a location where you can take a carriage ride, do.  This is  perhaps one of the best ways to spend some quite time as a newly married couple following the ceremony.

We arrived at the Manor house in Littleton, Colorado around noon on the wedding day of Julia and Sean.  Julia was all glowing as she arrived, and was escorted by her bridesmaids and mother.  Sean arrived a bit later with his grooms men, and were greeted with Scott for a few fun shots of the boys.   We rushed to get Julia’s father dressed as Julia and Sean were excited to meet for the first time that day.  Its so exciting, actually either way you look at it, meet before the ceremony, or first glance at the ceremony both provide the same emotion.  We loved that Julia and Sean had agreed to not Kiss until that first Kiss as husband and wife on the wedding day.  We enjoyed getting to know their family and friends from both near and far.  I think the fathers distance traveled was from Germany a good friend of the grooms family.  Some of our favorite moments captured were when Julia and Sean stepped away to take a break with each other, away from the crowd, watching the sun set.  Simply romantic.  Note to couples…..take a few moments out of your wedding day for just the two of you.  It goes so fast, and it feels like you simply blink and the day is over.  Cherish the love of this day forever.  Much love to both Julia and Sean……
