The last month before your wedding can be a little hectic. There are approximately one million tiny decisions to make. Everyone wants a piece of your time. And you already have a full time job on top of it! You’d be completely justified in wanting to take a day to relax and not think about it. So, for Kacey and Chris’s RiNo engagement session almost exactly one month before their wedding, we took them out drinking on a Friday afternoon.
After meeting Kacey and Chris at their house to grab some casual photos with Tucker, their dog, we headed into downtown Denver. We started at one of our favorite spots, 10 Barrel Brewing. Not only is their beer list fantastic, there’s incredible view from their rooftop bar. It was the perfect place to grab a pint, enjoy the sun, and relax for a bit before meeting another Chris, our tuk tuk driver for the day. Ever since we first saw the tuk tuks at Olivia and Colin’s wedding, we knew we wanted to incorporate them into an Alt Session, and this was the perfect one. They’re a great way to get around, see the city, and make sure you have a designated driver when exploring a few of Denver’s many microbreweries.
Tuk tuk Chris took us on a scenic tour of RiNo, stopping by some of the best murals along the way. Our next brewery was Great Divide, where we grabbed food from Las Cazuelas de Fer food truck and had Kacey and Chris tell us all about which wedding guests are going to have the greatest potential to do something crazy on the wedding day.
We wrapped our brewery tour at Black Shirt Brewing just in time to avoid the incoming storm. Then the tuk tuk dropped us back off on Larimer so we could grab some portraits with a few of the many graffiti murals – and maybe also play a couple rounds of pool. Because it was Friday and we all needed a little time to unwind! All in all, this RiNo engagement session was a huge success, if we do say so ourselves.
Kacey and Chris, we’re so excited for your wedding next month! And let us know whenever you want to take another Friday off to relax. Bacon and whiskey next time, right?
