Renewal of Vows at the Broadmoor :: Jen + Nick

Broadmoor wedding

Nick and Jennifer commemorated their tenth wedding anniversary with a low key renewal of vows at the charming, rustic Broadmoor Fish House on the day after Thanksgiving. Only their very nearest and dearest family members were present to celebrate the landmark occasion alongside them. A decade after their Texas nuptials, Jen and Nick, who have been together since high school,  are now the parents of three beautiful, adorable boys. And guess what — another son is on the way! Their renewal of vows was simple and beautiful, not really a ceremony so much as each of them speaking honestly about their love story and their shared life, as their guests listened and their rambunctious little guys played. We were lucky to have such a beautiful and sunny day for this special event, with the nearby foothills dusted with a light coating of snow. The light was perfect!

All in all it was an incredibly perfect, sweet and moving morning at the Broadmoor Fish House, and I was honored to have been the one chosen to document it all. Happy tenth anniversary, Jen and Nick! Here’s to many more decades of happiness!

Cliff House wedding :: Maura + Wes

Cliff House wedding Manitou Springs

Cute couple Wes and Maura’s Cliff House wedding on December 30th was just perfection. We had beautiful weather for the day, but an even more beautiful bride! Just look at how much Maura is smiling and laughing in these pictures! Of course Wes is madly in love with her, as he should be. Their late afternoon ceremony was a blend of Christian and Jewish traditions, and took place under a chuppah covered with a quilt handmade by Grandma. So sweet! The party was crazy fun, too  — the dance floor was bumpin’ all night. I had such a blast documenting Wes and Maura’s big day. Thanks for letting me document your Cliff House wedding! Congratulations and happy honeymoon!

Cliff House wedding :: Kevin + Rebecca

wedding at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak

Kevin, Rebecca and their loved ones traveled all the way from Texas to celebrate their wedding at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak. It was such a lovely group of people, and I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a more radiantly happy bride! Just look at that smile! I thoroughly enjoyed documenting this perfect day, surrounded by all that love and happiness!

Pinery at the Hill wedding :: Gundega + Rolly

Pinery at the Hill wedding

What a beautiful Pinery at the Hill wedding! I have to admit that this one was extra special for me. Gundi is a personal friend, and I’ve been getting to know Rolly these last few months. She couldn’t have chosen a nicer guy. He adores her, and they are perfect together!

I think the Pinery at the Hill is one of the nicest places for a wedding in Colorado Springs. Not only is the venue itself beautiful, the view over our downtown is quite spectacular. So I was pleased when the two of them chose me to document their Big Important Day there. Gundi incorporated Latvian wedding traditions into the details, and sentimentally wore her late mother’s vintage jewelry, which was beautiful.

All in all, it was simply a wonderful day and I had the best time making these pictures! You could really feel the love! Thanks for everything, Gundi and Rolly! Congratulations and happy honeymoon!

Mining Exchange wedding :: Jacqueline + Jon

Mining Exchange wedding downtown Colorado Springs

Another fantastic Mining Exchange wedding! Lovebirds Jackie and Jon tied the proverbial knot on January 1st, New Year’s Day. Since Jon is in the Army, the wedding ceremony was held at Soldiers Chapel on Fort Carson; their reception followed at the Mining Exchange in downtown Colorado Springs.

Jackie took the idea of becoming a military wife (and new stepmother) and ran with it. She even wore a camouflage garter! Meanwhile, Jon looked very handsome in his dress uniform, and Jackie’s dad followed suit. I do love a military wedding since I’m an Air Force brat myself and I think the uniforms always look so nice!

I had a blast celebrating Jackie and Jon’s big day with them and their nice families — and I can officially say I’ve never laughed so much at a wedding. We were all in stitches during Jon’s toast to his beautiful bride. It was hilarious! What a fun group of people and a great Mining Exchange wedding! Congratulations, Jackie and Jon!!!
