Josh + Melissa’s Cliff House Wedding

Garden of the Gods wedding pictures

Another beautiful Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding! Just look at this gorgeous couple! Josh is from here (Manitou Springs, to be exact), but Melissa is a recent transplant from Michigan, and she definitely wanted a mountain wedding. No midwestern nuptials for her — she loves it here and is fast becoming a real Coloradoan!

We took advantage of the beautiful weather to take a few wedding portraits in the Garden of the Gods before the ceremony. As usual, the light was spectacular! I think Josh and Melissa’s large wedding party was quite dazzled by the view. They couldn’t stop taking cell phone pictures, and I don’t blame them. I never take our natural beauty for granted.

After Melissa and Josh made their heartfelt vows in an emotional ceremony, the big bash commenced! It was a really fun party, and Melissa’s painstakingly handmade wedding details in purple and gold perfectly enhanced the Cliff House‘s beautiful, historic ballroom. I was so impressed by her skills (custom wood burning, anyone?!?)! Everything from the bouquets to the table decor was lovingly made by her. Wow! She really went all out, and as you can see, she has great taste. The ballroom looked fantastic! All of her hard work really paid off. And let’s talk about the crazy, fun dancing — I always find that midwesterners love to cut loose on the dance floor, and Josh and Melissa’s guests didn’t disappoint!

I really enjoy documenting a Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding. It’s such a beautiful, gracious building from another era, and I appreciate working with the staff there, who are always lovely. Josh and Melissa’s wedding was truly a perfect, fun, joy filled event, and I couldn’t be happier for this beautiful couple. Warmest congratulations and happy honeymoon, you two! I had a ton of fun photographing your big day!

Spring wedding at the Cliff House :: Cierra + Zach

Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding

Zach, Cierra and their loved ones came all the way from Minneapolis for their beautiful Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding. As luck would have it we had a light dusting of snow the night before, so the Garden of the Gods was looking extra pretty for their wedding portraits. Although Minnesotans are certainly used to chilly weather, the view of snowy Pikes Peak was something unique for them. I think everyone at this celebration fell a little in love with Colorado that day!

Cierra wore a pair of gorgeous blue velvet shoes that she bought a few years ago and kept at the ready for her future wedding. She also wore her grandmother’s vintage fur capelet, which was a lovely personal touch. She was just as pretty as a picture! Zach, you are a lucky guy!

Yes, I’m a shoe fanatic and Cierra’s were extra beautiful, but I have to say that my favorite part of their wedding was their emotion laden vows and the way this sweet couple looked at each other. He  just couldn’t stop smiling at her and it was adorable. Zach and Cierra have been together for a long time and have weathered a few storms together, and they were more than ready to make it official. The happiness was palpable!

The Cliff House at Pikes Peak is a great place for a wedding. Not only is it conveniently close to the Garden of the Gods, the building itself is beautiful, romantic and historically significant. Zach and Cierra, congratulations on tying the knot! Your happiness shined through!

Jason + Eileen’s beautiful Cliff House wedding album

I delivered this Cliff House wedding album many months ago, but I’m terrible about actually showing off pictures of my wedding albums. These have just been sitting on my hard drive forever — my bad! It’s high time I showed you Eileen and Jason’s beautiful wedding heirloom!

Cliff House wedding :: Dana + Sean

Another beautiful Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding, and it has been a long time coming for these high school sweethearts! Since Dana and Sean are recent transplants from Chicago, most of their loved ones traveled all the way from the country’s heartland to be present for their wedding at the Cliff House. They were such a fun group (especially the wedding party!), and it is clear that they’ve all considered themselves family for years now. The vows just make it official.

I think Dana has very pretty, feminine taste, which was reflected in the wedding’s color scheme (pink and rose gold), floral design and all the little details. She really thought of everything. I loved her summery, lacy dress, too. It was just lovely and it suited her perfectly.

I always enjoy a Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding, and this was one of the prettiest I have done there. What a great day! Warmest congratulations Sean and Dana, I had a blast hanging out with you and documenting your happy, laid back nuptials!

My newest demo album

My newest demo album is so pretty, I need to show it off! This is a parent album: ten spreads and twenty images in a very classic layout, and Rebecca and Kevin’s sweet wedding at the Cliff House was the perfect subject because her radiantly happy smile fairly jumps off the page. 🙂 I also ordered a custom presentation box to go with it. Love how it looks! Come by and see it sometime!
