Jim and Melissa and their friends were fun, kind and adventurous. There really isn’t anything more beautiful than a Rocky Mountain meadow for a Colorado destination wedding. It’s a small risk with the weather, but with a tent and the right vendors it can be quite luxurious. I loved her beautiful custom made dress by Wai-Ching Studio. It’s pretty amazing what a skilled caterer like Black Belly can do even at 8,300 ft. The music by amusicplus had people dancing on and off the dance floor. If there are more people like this fun group from Seattle I have to visit.
Sometimes people have such an infectious laugh you just can’t help but smile and join them. Jonna and Chris laugh a lot. In making each other happy, they make everyone else around them happy. It was a joy to be their wedding photographer. The day started with getting ready at the Hotel Boulderado and the ceremony was at the Greenbriar Inn, just outside Boulder. I loved the scalloped icing on this wedding cake, mirroring the shape of the rose pedals.
Chelsea and Steven’s wedding ceremony was at Cheeseman Park Pavilions in Denver, just a short walk outside the Denver Botanic Gardens. After doing some photography around the gardens dinner was at the fairy tale like Woodland Mosaic Solarium. As the sun set, it glowed something magical. Consequently, I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Harry Potter, Ron and Hermione meeting there. After dinner and toasts, everyone made their way to the main building for dancing followed by a fantastic send off with sparklers. Chelsea is an artist and nutritionist. As a result, her desserts were fantastic. You can view her beautiful, organic work at honeybewell.com.
Loved this wedding. This was one of the most fun weddings we did this year. The details were extraordinary, the colors photographed so well, there was great dancing, and they had fun and creative ideas like the heart shaped group shot and hand sign. The wedding was at Ralston’s Crossing in Arvada – a great venue with so many photo opportunities. Flowers by Bright Weddings; Catering by Hearts Desire Catering; music by MTS Productions
How would you like to choose from 30k of Tiffany jewelry, trips from around the world, a plethora of new mac products, plus get a year lease on a new Mercedes Benz? That is what seventy high rollers got as a thank you from Ameristar Casino in Black Hawk at an event to show Ameristar’s appreciation for their best customers. In case you’re wondering, I didn’t get one.
