River Bend Wedding

River Bend Wedding

Perhaps the most amazing thing about weddings in Colorado is the fantastic natural beauty of the surroundings. Katy and Adam’s River Bend wedding was no different.

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

Planet Bluegrass Wedding

I knew this was going to be a fun wedding early on when the groom said, “Mom, would you please sheath the swords so the dogs don’t step on them?” Really, I knew this was going to be a great time the night before at the rehearsal dinner, hosted by the groom’s parents at the Dushanbe Tea House; one of the guest’s name badges said as much.
