Mothers Chapel wedding :: Dania + Connor

Mothers Chapel wedding Garden of the Gods

The 2018 wedding season officially kicked off for me last Saturday with Dania and Connor’s tiny Mothers Chapel wedding in the Garden of the Gods. This is one of my favorite little churches, with its classic whitewashed clapboards and steeple. It’s so tiny and perfect for a small scale wedding like Dania and Connor’s. Their brief, emotional ceremony was strictly a family affair, which makes sense because the Mothers Chapel can’t hold more than about 15 people!

I love itty bitty weddings like this. I just do. It was so much fun for me just being a small part of this happy day, and I got some great pictures of this cool rock and roll couple! Congratulations, Connor and Dania!

Garden of the Gods wedding in Colorado Springs :: Erin + Michael

Colorado Springs wedding photography

This intensely emotional Colorado Springs wedding was extra special for me, and not just for photography reasons. Michael and Erin were originally planning a great big wedding bash next August in upstate New York. But when Michael’s grandmother’s health recently took a turn for the worse, they made an incredibly generous and sweet gesture: they moved their wedding date up by a year and they came here to Colorado Springs to tie the knot, so she would be able to be there for them. They planned it all in a matter of weeks. Needless to say, it was an extremely emotional afternoon for everyone, including myself. Yes, my tear ducts leaked copiously along with all of Michael and Erin’s loved ones! I’m definitely a crier too, when it comes to situations like these!

Certainly Michael and Erin make a beautiful couple, and it was a joy to photograph their true happiness and profound love. It didn’t hurt that it was also a flawlessly gorgeous, patented Colorado day, with the kind of golden afternoon sunshine and glorious late summer haze that we all know and love so well. Magical, magical light, almost dreamlike, really. Just perfect!

I treasured documenting every emotional moment of this special Colorado Springs wedding at Mothers Chapel in the Garden of the Gods. So much love! Congratulations Erin and Michael! Also, wishing you a very happy honeymoon!

Michael and his grandmother, whom he adores. These photographs speak volumes about their close relationship.
