Alyssa and Trace fell in love with each other when they met at their school's graphic design club back in Wisconsin. And since moving here they have both fallen in love with the great outdoors of Colorado. They love to go hiking, rock climbing, snow-shoeing, and camping. I follow Alyssa on instagram and it's epic shot after epic shot of gorgeous Colorado scenery that they find on their adventures. They even had a special place they had picked out for their engagement photos where they like to go rock climbing. I find that pretty awesome considering there are plenty of couples who have no special outdoor place even after living here for years! I thought it was pretty fitting that the wedding venue that they ended up going with (Wedgewood on Boulder Creek) was nestled right alongside Boulder Creek just into the Boulder Canyon a few miles from Pearl Street. It definitely had a similar vibe to Clear Creek Canyon where we did their engagement photos and I think was the perfect place to share their love of Colorado with all of their visiting friends and family who traveled out of state to come share their special day with them. I absolutely love the Wedgewood on Boulder Creek. Just as it says in their name, the rushing water of the Boulder Creek mountain stream adds a nice ambient noise (not to mention beautiful photo opportunities) and they've also done a fabulous job with the gardens and lawn area. I find that the wedding guests always look so relaxed and happy during cocktail hour there. And their open-air outdoor tent is one of the prettiest in the state with billowing white fabric draped across the ceiling and dotted with large beautiful chandeliers. It's truly a lovely mix of outdoor mountain rustic beauty and formal elegance.

So romantic:) My favorite!
Katherine and Brent were married over Memorial Day weekend at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. This gorgeous Colorado mountain wedding venue is nestled underneath a breathtaking rugged mountain rock face right across the street from the Fall River Visitors Center and entrance to one of the Estes Park sides of Rocky Mountain National Park. With a venue right there at a national park, it's no wonder that a herd of deer dreamily grazed in the backdrop during their wedding ceremony as they proclaimed their vows in front of all of their friends and family. And it was certainly fairytale-esque when the day's fairly heavy rain cleared up just in time for the outdoor ceremony. In fact, the weather remained pretty nice with no more precipitation for the whole rest of the evening. Hosting your wedding at the front steps of a national park pretty much guarantees gorgeous photos in a Colorado forest complete with silly wild turkeys roaming around. As if all of the natural features weren't enough, Della Terra had plenty of beautiful architecture and man-made features to add to the beauty of Katherine and Brent's wedding day scenery. It was the perfect wedding day full of good friends, laughter and good cheer with a lot of love coming from their families. Congratulations to the happy married couple!

One last sweet moment:)
As I was prepping the photos for today's wedding preview I realized that the couple featured in the first wedding of the season this year has something very sweet in common with the last wedding couple I photographed last season. And that sweet something is a new baby to add to their families. I love photographing new families and it's particularly adorable when it's because mom and dad are getting married! This darling little baby boy shown quite a bit in the picture below is such a little lovebug. He's mastered the art of waving goodbye and it was so hard to restrain myself from pinching those scrumptious little baby cheeks of his. And his mommy and daddy are such a good-looking and loving couple. They were so lucky that their wedding day turned out to be beautiful since it's always a weather risk when getting married in Colorado in the middle of March. It was so sunny and warm on the day of their wedding that I kept thinking I was photographing a summer wedding. They were married at Christ on the Mountain Catholic Church in Lakewood and after the ceremony we headed out to capture some portraits at Red Rocks. Once we finished with those we headed on to the Evergreen lake house where the reception took place. With friends and family at their side and incredibly nice weather it truly couldn't have been a better day to get married! Congratulations to this delightful little family and here's to a bright and happy future for them!
One of my favorites!

Wow, 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!
