Presenting Carol and Andrew’s wedding album! Notice the date on the spine. This just goes to prove that it’s never too late for a beautiful, archival, custom-designed heirloom. Almost seven years have passed since their wedding, and these days Andrew and Carol are parents to three lively little ones. Now they’ll have an heirloom full of sweet memories to hand down to their kids or grandkids some day. I love that.
There was a time when it was common to get married in your parents’ backyard, but nowadays it’s a rarity, which makes it special. I relish the opportunity to document a backyard wedding like Amity and Jorge’s. And funny thing, her parents live on the same street as mine! Only a few doors away, actually! So this was doubly fun for me. Jorge has carried a torch for Amity ever since high school, when they were good friends. Several years (and children!) later, they reconnected on Facebook, and wouldn’t you know it, they fell truly in love. What a great story! Congratulations Jorge and Amity!
The day may have started off gloomy and damp, but Austin and Kelsey’s Mining Exchange wedding on July 15th ended up being sunny and perfect in every way! We had such a blast covering this fun, family-oriented celebration. Kelsey has great taste, and her cheerful blue and yellow color scheme was perfect for a summer wedding. Wonderful, happy day, guys! Congratulations again!
She’s from Sri Lanka, he’s from Germany, and they met in a hot tub in Canada! Darshika and Johannes are some of the most interesting and intelligent people I’ve met in a while. And extremely nice, too! It’s really a misnomer to call their celebration a backyard wedding, because they actually got married in the living room of their beautiful home in Black Forest before a mere 22 guests, almost all of whom came from afar. They incorporated Sri Lankan and German traditions into their day. It was such a lovely, intimate and laid back celebration! Congratulations Darshika and Johannes!
There were no fancy place settings or centerpieces, no bridesmaids or groomsmen, not even a bridal bouquet — just two kids in love, with their parents to witness their vows as Judge Martin formalized their union in a brief ceremony. It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of documenting a sweet little courthouse wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed the short time I spent with Kayla and Cullen. Yes it was cold and damp outside, but we didn’t care. It was all about the moment! Kayla and Cullen met in basic training and fell in like, only to find themselves both stationed at Fort Carson, where like turned into love. Obviously they were meant to be together! I wish them all the best in their new adventure!
