Morgan & Andrew’s outdoor wedding took place on September 21st, 2013, the last official day of Summer. Just a week before their wedding in Denver, much of our state of Colorado was ravaged by flash flooding that lasted for several days. Many areas, including many wedding venues, experienced great loss and devastation because of it. Fortunately, their venue was one of only a few wedding venues in Colorado that seemed to escape the catastrophic flooding that others experienced. Metaphorically speaking, their wedding day was a rainbow after the storm. A perfectly sunny, 70 degree day in Denver with only the whitest cotton candy clouds painted across a perfectly blue sky, none of us could have dreamt of better circumstances. They had a sun-kissed afternoon ceremony on the lawn, followed by an evening reception under a large tree strung with bistro lights in “the round”!

I was SO honored to have their wedding chosen amongst only THREE other real wedding features to be published in this stunning issue of Smitten Magazine! What an honor it is to see my work amongst that of such talented photographers, such as Corbin Gurkin who took the stunning cover image! You can also see Morgan & Andrew’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

The 3rd edition of the magazine was just published and can be seen and purchased HERE. This was one of my favorite looks that we photographed that day and I think this dress would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner!

Kelly & Aaron | Wedding

elegant-bridesapphire-engagement-ringpink-heelsbride-and-groom-in-estes-parklace-veiloutdoor-colorado-weddingelegant-wedding-cakebride-and-groomdestination-weddingIn September of 2013 here in Colorado, we experienced devastating flash floods in many areas of our state. Kelly & Aaron’s wedding was scheduled just days after the first of the flash floods hit, and with all of their guests flying in from out of state, it was questionable whether or not their wedding would be able to take place the weekend that they had planned. From Kelly’s dress being stranded at the cleaners in a town that had been evacuated, to the National Guard turning away guests and vendors attempting to get to the wedding location (Della Terra Mountain Chateau in Estes Park), it seemed at one point that none of their plans were going to happen as they’d intended. Nonetheless, even though many of the details amazingly did come together at the last minute, their attitudes were the true testament to what their day was really about. One thing I always remind my brides of on the wedding day is that, if nothing goes according to plan other than being happily married at the end of the day, then their wedding was nothing short of perfection. One of the most memorable parts of the day in my mind was when Aaron was giving a toast at the reception he said, with a smile on his face, “Over the last year of planning this wedding, we had many people ask us, ‘Why Colorado?’. My answer was always that same: ‘Because it’s always sunny and it’s easy to get to!’”. Read more of their amazing story over on Snippet & Ink today!

The Lonely Bouquet Project

The concept behind the Lonely Bouquet Project was originated by a small floral shop in Belgium. My friend Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Designs, inspired by the original story, took it upon herself to launch a new Lonely Bouquet Project in our beautiful city of Denver and asked myself and Lana Frankel of Lana’s Shop to be a part of it. In essence, the Lonely Bouquet Project is the process of creating a beautiful bouquet and sacrificially leaving it behind in a downtown area for a passerby to discover in hopes that it will bring a smile to someone’s day and spread kindness throughout the city. One of the most amazing privileges we have as artists is being able to add beauty to our world and I love the way The Lonely Bouquet Project does just that. Who wouldn’t be smiling after discovering such a beautiful and colorful creation during their lunch hour at work?
