A Beautiful Downtown Colorado Springs Wedding Album

 

Downtown Colorado Springs wedding
You may remember Diana and Cody’s wonderful downtown Colorado Springs wedding from last fall. A month ago I delivered their final product to them: this gorgeous heirloom album, chock full of beautiful, happy, meaningful images. It’s something they can cherish for the rest of their lives, then pass down to their children and grandchildren. I’m really proud of this custom designed wedding book. I think it tells the story of their day perfectly.

Pioneers Museum wedding :: Diana + Cody

Pioneers Museum wedding

Cody and Diana’s wedding at the Pioneers Museum and the Mining Exchange Gold Room was so much fun for me to document because I’m a Colorado Springs history nerd, and this big Italian bash really checked all the boxes! They got ready at the Alexander House, a historic mansion in the Old North End owned by a close friend of Diana’s mom. I have admired this beautiful old home from afar for many years, so it was a special treat to get to spend some time in there. It’s gorgeous, and the owners are so nice!

The wedding ceremony was at the beautiful, Belle Époque era Pioneers Museum (one of my favorite buildings in the city!), and the reception was in the Art Déco era Gold Room at the Mining Exchange. Talk about a great party! To top things off, Diana wore her grandmother’s incredible, handmade, 1943 wedding gown. Wow! In fact, she’s the the third bride in the family to have worn it, after her grandmother and her aunt. The gown is exquisite, and as an avid sewist and lover of vintage clothes, I’d like to add that its construction is simply perfect, down to the hand beading. It must have taken months of work to complete. Truly a labor of love. After the ceremony, Diana changed into a modern wedding dress. She looked utterly fabulous in both gowns, and Cody was dashing in his tails. Together they made a beautiful pair.

Beyond all that though, was the obvious affection that Cody and Diana’s close knit families feel for this sweet couple. This wedding was a long time coming, so everyone was very excited for them. And you can see from the pictures how in madly love they are. <3 I had a wonderful time documenting all of it. What a fantastic end to a great wedding season!

Colorado Springs wedding :: Christina + Josh

Colorado Springs wedding photographers

This Colorado Springs wedding story is another sweet romance that started in high school. I just love a happy ending! Christina and Josh dated as teens and even went to prom together — how I’d love to see those pictures! — then a couple of years later they reconnected during their college years. In short, this celebration was the culmination of years of deep love and yes, enduring friendship. Their families were over the moon! And even though it sure looked like we were going to get dumped on, the rain miraculously held off and we even got some glorious afternoon sunshine.

Christina is not only beautiful and exceptionally smart (she’s a successful attorney), she’s also organized and has very nice taste. This is a bride who had visualized her wedding day since she was a little girl, and she made those ideas come to life at the Mining Exchange on the big day . I loved her sparkly flats, her long, looooooong veil, and the way she incorporated meaningful family heirloom jewelry into her ensemble. She also had her gown altered to eliminate the train, something I don’t see very often. It looked great! Meanwhile, Josh looked extra handsome — and tall — in his black suit and white tie. What a good looking couple they made!

This was such a sweet, sentimental celebration. You could feel the love at this wonderful Colorado Springs wedding! Congratulations Josh and Christina, what a fantastic day!

Downtown Colorado Springs wedding :: Kelsey + Austin

The day may have started off a little bit gloomy and damp, but Austin and Kelsey’s downtown Colorado Springs wedding at the Mining Exchange, one of my favorite venues, ended up being sunny and perfect in every way. The clouds miraculously lifted just after the ceremony and we were treated to the most glorious, late afternoon sunshine. Classic Colorado!

Beautiful Kelsey is so tiny, she had to wear high, high platform shoes so Austin could kiss her without stooping. But although the may be petite, she’s mighty! As you can see from these pictures, she is extremely fit and strong. In fact, Kelsey’s somewhat of a a body builder and her well defined muscles looked fantastic in her strapless lace gown. Wow! She worked hard to prepare for her wedding, and it shows! Austin, meanwhile, is so clearly in love with her — it was just adorable the way he gazed at her when she wasn’t looking. The smile never left his face. They are such a cute couple.

I had such a blast covering this fun, family oriented, downtown Colorado Springs wedding. Kelsey has great taste, and her cheerful blue and yellow color scheme was perfect for a summer celebration. Wonderful, happy day, guys! Congratulations again and happy honeymoon!
