Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding

Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding

Almost exactly two years to the day that the Supreme Court passed down their landmark decision recognizing gay marriage nationwide, M&L married each other in an emotional Denver Botanic Gardens wedding. While we appreciate that the Supreme Court made it possible, all our thanks go to M&L for letting us capture their amazingly beautiful day.

After a morning spent getting hair and makeup done and sharing jokes with their closest friends and family, we headed to the Denver Botanic Gardens for the funniest first look we’ve ever photographed. M&L share multiple inside jokes about sharks, so obviously M had to don a shark costume to add a little levity to the day. It worked and L’s reaction was priceless! (Not to mention the confusion of the gawkers in the gardens.)

That day, we were fortunate to have so many perfect photo opportunities, from a daytime stroll through the Botanic Gardens to a spectacular sunset to some well-timed cyclists during our nighttime portrait session. The entire day was an impeccable reflection of the newlyweds’ personalities. M&L, you are two amazing people and we are so glad you found each other!
