While it’s never fun to have to change your wedding day, we’re secretly happy that Maggie and Dan had to upend their plans. If the Canadian border had stayed open, we wouldn’t have gotten to meet these two amazing souls or been able to photograph their Garden of the Gods Resort wedding.
After 14 seasons, I think one of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is having a front seat to witness the range of emotions throughout the day. As one of the only vendors who spend the entire wedding day in close proximity to the couple, we get the chance to see how the quiet moments contrast with the boisterous festivities. And Maggie and Dan’s wedding was no different.
Their Garden of the Gods Resort wedding was brimming with happy tears as much as it was replete with laughter. Capturing the day by their sides, it was impossible not to experience every feeling along with the newlyweds. The excitement of the morning preparations built to a crescendo of eager nerves, which broke open and settled down into a feeling of peace and ease after the first look. Their ceremony was a pastoral hymn, accompanied by the most spectacular play between the sun and the clouds. And their day wrapped up with the kind of party that we’ve all been waiting patiently for throughout the past year. Belt-limbo and all.
Maggie and Dan, it was an absolute pleasure to capture your day. We wish you all the happiness in the world and can’t wait to hear about your well-earned honeymoon to Tahiti and New Zealand next year!
