I sometimes get asked if I do small weddings, and my answer is that I love small weddings! I especially love elopements, when it’s just me, the officiate and the happy couple. It’s the sweetest! Oftentimes it’s a couple like Kim and Chris, who are in their fifties, each with grown children, and taking a second chance at love and lifetime commitment. They opted to get married at a private spot in Palmer Park that had a beautiful view of the mountains and the city. As you can see, they’re madly in love! Congratulations Chris and Kim!
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!
Michael and Erin were planning a great big wedding bash next August in upstate New York, but when Michael’s grandmother’s health took a turn for the worse recently, they made an incredibly generous and sweet gesture: they moved their wedding date up by a year and they came here to tie the knot, so she’d be able to attend. Needless to say, it was a very emotional day for everyone (including me — I cried copiously along with everyone else!). It was also a perfectly gorgeous, patented Colorado kind of day, with golden sunshine and that glorious late summer haze. Magical. I so enjoyed documenting every moment of this special occasion. Congratulations Erin and Michael!
I love a backyard wedding (although technically, this was a FRONT yard wedding!), and Sarah is a good friend, so this was doubly sweet for me! Sarah was lucky enough to grow up in a beautiful, secluded and unique neighborhood in Colorado Springs that is almost like a nature preserve, so marrying lucky Darrell at the house where she grew up was a given. There were only about 20 or 30 people in attendance, and after the ceremony we all went to the Margarita at Pine Creek to celebrate. It was a lovely, perfect day! Congratulations Sarah and Darrell!!!
Just a small sampling of some of my personal favorite from the past year. I could have posted many more, but pulled the plug at 41. Many, many thanks to all my lovely clients. It’s been nothing but a pleasure to be a small part of such important moments! Happy New Year!
