Garden of the Gods Club wedding :: Anna + Jonathan

I have been dying to share the pictures from this beautiful Garden of the Gods Club wedding! Anna and Jon, along with their families and closest friends, traveled all the way from Chicago and parts beyond to celebrate their union at the beautiful Garden of the Gods Club. Anna was so giddy and animated, it was a joy to capture her happiness, and as for Jon, he just couldn’t stop smiling!

Springtime weather in the Rockies is, as you know, a little fickle! Our day started out with sunshine, and the mild weather held up nicely throughout the pre-ceremony portraits. But half an hour before the outdoor ceremony was to begin, the skies suddenly darkened, the temperature plummeted and rain started to come down. Plan B was put into action! All the chairs were moved from the lawn to the covered patio, the heaters were turned on, and the fire pits were lit. Then suddenly, just as the processional was about to commence, the rain stopped and the sun burst through the clouds, bathing the entire ceremony in a golden glow. Mother Nature really put on a gorgeous show for us. It was fantastic!

The reception was a ton of fun. Jonathan’s family is Jewish, so the highlight of the night for me was the hora. It’s always such a blast! Even Jon’s four year old niece and septuagenarian grandma got a ride in the chair. Talk about a fun party!

I love any opportunity to document a Garden of the Gods Club wedding, and this one was extra special. I had the best time! Congratulations to you, Anna and Jon! Happy honeymoon!

Spring wedding at the Cliff House :: Cierra + Zach

Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding

Zach, Cierra and their loved ones came all the way from Minneapolis for their beautiful Cliff House at Pikes Peak wedding. As luck would have it we had a light dusting of snow the night before, so the Garden of the Gods was looking extra pretty for their wedding portraits. Although Minnesotans are certainly used to chilly weather, the view of snowy Pikes Peak was something unique for them. I think everyone at this celebration fell a little in love with Colorado that day!

Cierra wore a pair of gorgeous blue velvet shoes that she bought a few years ago and kept at the ready for her future wedding. She also wore her grandmother’s vintage fur capelet, which was a lovely personal touch. She was just as pretty as a picture! Zach, you are a lucky guy!

Yes, I’m a shoe fanatic and Cierra’s were extra beautiful, but I have to say that my favorite part of their wedding was their emotion laden vows and the way this sweet couple looked at each other. He  just couldn’t stop smiling at her and it was adorable. Zach and Cierra have been together for a long time and have weathered a few storms together, and they were more than ready to make it official. The happiness was palpable!

The Cliff House at Pikes Peak is a great place for a wedding. Not only is it conveniently close to the Garden of the Gods, the building itself is beautiful, romantic and historically significant. Zach and Cierra, congratulations on tying the knot! Your happiness shined through!

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!
