Amity + Jorge’s sweet backyard wedding

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!

Mining Exchange wedding :: Christina + Josh

Another romance that started in high school! 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. This wedding was the culmination of years of deep love and friendship. The families were ecstatic! And even though it sure looked like we were going to get dumped on, the rain miraculously held off and we even got some great afternoon sunshine. It was such a sweet, sentimental celebration. You could feel the love! Congratulations Josh and Christina, what a wonderful day!

Denver Public Library wedding :: Melanie + Ben

Melanie is an old friend of mine, and I couldn’t have been more honored to be asked to document her wedding to Ben. Where else should they hold this very special event than at the place where they met: the iconic Denver Public Library! In fact, they didn’t just meet there, they both worked there (though Melanie has since moved on to a different branch). What a special place to get married! Both the ceremony and reception took place in the Vida Ellison Gallery on the 7th floor. The view of downtown Denver from up there is spectacular! This truly was a beautiful, personal, emotional celebration and I am so happy to have been the one to document it for them.

Downtown Colorado Springs wedding :: Kelsey + Austin

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!
