When I first met with Jessica & Matthew to talk about their wedding, I knew from the start it would be something special. The first half of the day was dark and rainy but thankfully the rain stopped just long enough for an intimate ceremony in the romantic gardens with only their closest family and friends in attendance (35 in total). Their garden ceremony was followed by a dinner party reception at one of downtown Denver’s best farm-to-table style restaurants, The Kitchen Denver. It was a celebration filled with good food, lots of wine and great company. There were four tables at the reception and Jessica & Matthew had a place setting at each so they could spend some time dining with guests at every table throughout the evening.

So thrilled to finally get to share Julia & Bobby’s wedding with the world now that the Fall issue of The Knot Colorado is out on newsstands! Julia is the true epitome of beauty and grace. She strikes me as a cross between Kate Middleton and Lauren Bush, and fittingly, her wedding took place the same weekend as Lauren Bush’s wedding did, only two years later, and her bouquet was Kate Middleton inspired with  cascading lily of the valley. It was such an honor to photograph this elegant wedding overlooking the Rocky Mountains!

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!

Sara! You and anything in the pink color range is magical. Honestly, this is gorgeous. I could stare at them all afternoon…

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!
