Denver Wedding Photography | Church Ranch Event Center in Westminster

I
met Katie and Ryan when I photographed his cousin Alex's wedding a couple of years ago. I even got to photograph him and his family again when they were celebrating his grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary a few years ago. We got the whole family together for some portraits up in Greeley to commemorate that huge milestone in their lives. We also did their engagement photos last fall at South Mesa Trail so when I showed up to photograph their wedding they were no strangers to posing in front of my camera. They prepped for the day just a few minutes away from their wedding venue at the Denver Marriott Westminster hotel in a couple of suites with great natural light pouring in from the floor to ceiling windows. Just down the street is the Church Ranch Event Center where Katie and Ryan held their wedding celebration. The venue is gorgeous from the inside out. There are aspen trees and the grounds are covered with beautiful plants and water features. The outdoor ceremony space has to be one of the largest I've seen and can host hundreds of guests. Indoors the ceilings are draped with white fabric and plenty of twinkle lights for great ambiance. Katie and Ryan opted to wait to see each other at the ceremony when she walked down the aisle so we did some of the bride and bridesmaid portraits before the ceremony began and waited until after the ceremony to finish up the rest. Before the ceremony began it started to rain so the guests fled their seats to take cover under the surrounding trees and umbrellas. After a brief rain delay they were able to complete their sweet wedding ceremony. It was a lovely day for a wedding and Ryan and Katie were beaming all day! It was such a blast to photograph them again!
