Wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens

Weddings

As the daughter of a passionate gardner, I’ve been to the Denver Botanic Gardens many times before – but never for a wedding. When Allison asked me if I’d like to assist her with Mike & Amanda’s wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens, the answer was an immediate “yes!”

And these two Colorado Springs girls had a blast tearin’ up downtown Denver with this bridal party! From two different (gorgeous) “getting ready” locations, to the gardens, to a reception in the top of a clocktower across town, this bride and groom gave us the full urban wedding experience and PLENTY of beauty to capture.

Mike & Amanda’s day went off without a hitch…except one tiny little thing. Amanda wanted to surprise Mike with a stay at The Crawford Hotel and she did a GREAT JOB of keeping that secret. Such a great job, in fact, that she forgot to tell Allison that she’d also be getting ready there. I dropped Allison off at what we thought was the correct hotel and drove away. A minute later, I looked up to see a frantic Allison running through the valet shouting at me to stop and come back and get her.

Later in the evening, Allison and I had another chance to get our heart rates up when Amanda and Mike requested that we climb to the.very.top of the bell tower for a few photos. Even I – lover of all things thrilling – had to sit down for a minute after we completed that adventure.

You all probably know by now that I love a beautiful wedding and always, always love a good love story, but a day spent shooting, exploring and working alongside a talented friend is absolutely the icing on the cake.

Lodge at Cathedral Pines Wedding || Justin & Breanna
There were so many things that I loved about Justin & Breanna's Lodge at Cathedral Pines wedding. Like the fact that she planned the whole color scheme around her grandmother's coral necklace and the cereal, yogurt, and mimosa bar that was provided for the guests while the bride and groom took photos. I loved the way Brianna's sister truly shared in her joy and the moment that Justin first saw his bride walking down the aisle was simply amazing. As summer comes to an end, I had fun looking back on this wedding that kicked off wedding season for me this year. As aways, it was an honor to play a role in this special day. I love my couple ...

Chris & Stephanie [An Evergreen Lake House Wedding]
Last summer, I kicked off wedding season by assisting the lovely Caroline Ro with Chris & Stephanie's Evergreen Lake House wedding. Even though we're smack-dab in the middle of winter, I thought today was an appropriate time to reminisce a little bit about a wedding with warm, summery scenery! Chris & Stephanie traveled all the way from Charleston to have their wedding among the mountains of beautiful Colorado and they could not have picked a more perfect spot than Evergreen. This venue, you guys. Oh my word! It was gorgeous. Add in the joyful groom and the glowing bride, top it off with the most perfect weather, and you have a wed ...
