Best Wedding and Portraits in Colorado 2016 | Denver Photographer Year in Review

W
ow, it's already New Year's Eve and and I find myself compiling all of my favorite images created for clients throughout the year. This is one of my favorite blog posts to create every year because I get to look back and remember all of the wonderful people I've met. I'm so thankful for what I do and for the trust that is placed in me to capture these family memories for so many. I want to thank all of my clients from 2016 and from year's past for your business. Here's to a 2017 as good as 2016!

Modern Colorado Rooftop Patio Wedding | Vita Restaurant in Denver

I
am beyond excited to share the photos from this wedding on the blog today. Not just because it's for my friends but because they've waited for their wedding day for so long and they finally made their dream happen. I met Cass quite a few years ago the same way I seem to meet most of my girlfriends (through derby!) and let me tell you, this girl just lights up a room when she walks in. She's loud and wild in a good way and you know she'll always have your back. She's been with Chris for as long as I've known her and they are truly a great match. Chris is a total sweetheart with excellent music taste and I think that Cass's maid of honor really said it best that if Cass didn't marry Chris someone in the family would have to because he is just so loved by all. These two have been together for so many years and they were finally planning for the big day when their sweet little baby girl, Palmer, came along so they chose to postpone the wedding. Palmer did not have it easy her first year of life due to some health issues she was born with but damn she's a little fighter. And she's such a sweet little girl too. She joined in on the festivities of mom and dad's big day making everyone around her laugh. The best part was when she was hamming it up during the cake cutting. These two are clearly loved by so many people and I'm thrilled for them that their big wedding day plans finally came together.  
 
Cass & Chris,  
Holy shit, you finally did it;) And you did it really well too. Love you guys! Congratulations!  
-Nona

Denver Botanic Gardens Wedding | All America Selections Garden in Colorado

I
have enjoyed photographing Kristi and Daryn so much since I met them earlier this year. Not only are they super sweet people, but they're incredibly photogenic too! They held their small intimate wedding at the new modern style open air outdoor wedding venue at Denver Botanic Gardens called the All-America Selections Garden. But first they prepped for the big day at the JW Marriott in Cherry Creek where I fell in love with the bright blue wall in Kristi's room. The All-America Selections garden is a gorgeous place to get married with vibrant color surrounding the patio and a beautiful lily pond along the edge too. It was so sweet to see the emotion in their faces as they saw each other for the first time and being witness to that kind of true love is the best part of my job. Congratulations to you, Kristi & Daryn. I'm so happy that you found each other!

All-America-Selections Garden Wedding | Denver Botanic Gardens in Colorado

I
met Erin many years ago when we were both roller derby skaters for Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. She's since moved on from skating, but she's an incredibly athletic person and does more running than I could ever dream of doing. She runs so many races and marathons that I can't even keep track of it. Almost every summer she and her girlfriends spend days in a van taking turns running across the mountains of Colorado. She's a super hero athlete and also super sweet too which is why I was so happy to hear that she met Aaron. They are such a great match and not just because they basically have the same name;) It's awesome to see her so comfortable in his arms. Despite the hot temperatures, their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. We started off with hair and make up at the Oxford Club Spa & Salon before moving on the the Crawford Hotel suite where Aaron and his buddies got dressed before leaving the room for Erin and her gals to use after. The Cooper Lounge was nice enough to allow us to use their bar space for their first look and a few portraits before heading over to the Denver Botanic Gardens on York Street. Denver Botanic Gardens has redesigned one of their wedding spaces called the All-America-Selections Garden which is where the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner took place. It's a really nice location with a very modern style overhead covering to keep guests from baking in the heat and nice and open on all sides to enjoy the gardens. I particularly liked the water lilies found on the edges of the space. After dinner, the party moved indoors to the Gates Hall and Gates Garden Court where the dancing and merrymaking continued throughout the evening.
