Grand Hyatt Denver Wedding

Grand Hyatt Denver Wedding

Whenever Jesse and I go to Barnes and Noble, he has to stop me before we get into the store to tell me the plan:  browse books for an hour and then meet at the front of the store. He made the mistake once of trying to go over the plan after we had gotten into the store and immediately regretted it. By the time he had turned to me, I had dashed off and he spent the rest of the hour looking for me (I’m short, so it’s hard to see me behind the bookshelves). Continue reading →

Fall Wedding at Della Terra

Fall Wedding at Della Terra

Colorado weather in October is definitely hit or miss. When you book your wedding venue in the snow in February, there’s a very real chance that the venue will look the same in October. Luckily for Kristen and Patrick, that wasn’t the case for their fall wedding at Della Terra this past weekend. Continue reading →

Hindu Wedding in Colorado Springs

Hindu Wedding in Colorado Springs

This was no ordinary Hindu wedding in Colorado Springs. This wedding was marked by color and emotion and blithe celebration. The couple smiled all day long, but their smiles were the brightest when they were looking at each other. Astha and Roberto built a beautiful, solid, occasionally uneven bridge between two very different but incredibly vibrant cultures. Continue reading →

Boulder Brewery Engagement

Boulder Brewery Engagement

Even though I’m not from Colorado originally, I’ve embraced the dogs + microbrew lifestyle 100%. So when Kelly and Nick mentioned that they have three goofy dogs and like to visit breweries, it was a no-brainer to combine these activities for their brewery engagement session. Continue reading →

Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Lower Lake Ranch Wedding

Wedding planning is not an easy task. Regardless of how simple you want your wedding to be, there are a myriad of choices you’ll still have to make. Planning long distance is even harder. I’ve never seen a couple step up to the task like Kelsey & Jon did for their Lower Lake Ranch wedding this weekend.  Continue reading →

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding

I’m kind of a word nerd, and as such, I’ve been annoyed recently at how often the word “epic” is thrown around. Replying All on an email is not an “epic fail.” Doing shots at a bar does not make it an “epic” night. Epic should not be a random hashtag thrown into a tweet. But Jessica and Robb’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding? That meets my standards for epic.

Cheyenne Mountain Resort Wedding

Cheyenne Mountain Resort Wedding

When it comes to dancing, having a good dance partner is just as important as knowing the right steps. You need to communicate well, be in sync, and take care not to trod on each other. When it comes to navigating this crazy world, it’s just as important to have a good life partner – for the same reasons. So if Julie and Ben’s Cheyenne Mountain Resort wedding is any indicator, these two have got it made. Continue reading →

Beaver Creek Wedding

Beaver Creek Wedding

What struck me most about Christie and Eric’s Beaver Creek wedding was something that the bride put into words herself:  “We’ve got such amazing friends!” Not only were their friends an integral part of the wedding day – from ceremony readings to standing up in the wedding party to toasting the couple at the reception – they went above and beyond. Continue reading →

Vail Wedding

Vail Wedding

Being avid skiers, Jesse and I absolutely love Vail in the winter; it might possibly be our favorite mountain (shhh, don’t tell Beaver Creek). However, it’s just as spectacular in the summer, especially when you invite your favorite friends and family up to 8,000 ft. for a celebration. So when Andrea and Shawn asked us to photograph their Vail wedding, we jumped at the chance. Continue reading →
