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!

Manitou Springs wedding :: Alicia + Gabe

Gabe and Alicia’s New Year’s Eve wedding at the Cliff House was so tiny, the grand total of people present, excluding myself, was only eleven! At first they had planned on casually tying the knot at the courthouse, but Alicia’s mom thought it would be nice if the nearest and dearest could be present, so the event “grew legs” so to speak. Still and all, it was an extremely low key, intimate and happy celebration and a great way to finish off 2016! All the best, Alicia and Gabe! Congratulations!

Kevin, Rebecca and their loved ones traveled all the way from Texas to celebrate their wedding at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak. It was such a lovely group of people, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more radiantly happy bride! Just look at that smile! I thoroughly enjoyed documenting this perfect day, surrounded by all that love and happiness!

Small scale but beautiful in every way, Jennifer and Andy’s Manitou Springs wedding at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak was full of sparkle and lush color. I love Jennifer’s feminine style! (Check out her glam jewelry, then check out her footwear!) This was my last wedding of 2015 and I enjoyed every minute. Congratulations, guys! It was pure sparkling perfection!
