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!!!
I thought it would be fun to show off some of my favorite bridal portraits I’ve taken over the last few years. Look at all these phenomenally beautiful women! I am so lucky to always have the loveliest brides, inside and out. There were a lot of portraits when all was said and done (and even so, I couldn’t possibly post one from every wedding), so I’m breaking this series up into two posts. Enjoy!
What can I say about Brooke and Mike’s intimate, laid back wedding at Henderson Beach? It was so casual, the only person wearing shoes was me! The rain held off while the rain clouds gave us the most soft and beautiful light. And the sand was as white as sugar. Beautiful location, perfect wedding! What a fun, fun day. Brooke and Mike, congratulations!
You probably don’t need to be reminded that it rained A LOT in Colorado this year, and this lovely, lovely Craftwood Inn wedding took place right smack in the middle of that catastrophic week — you know, the one where half of our state ended up underwater. And yet Mother Nature smiled benevolently on us and let off the rain almost exactly on schedule for Shannon and Eric’s outdoor wedding ceremony at the beautiful Craftwood Inn in Manitou Springs. Miracle! I had complete faith that the rain would stop, and it did. It truly was the most wonderful day, unpredictable weather and all. So many of their loved ones came from all over, and you can see the happiness radiating from these two! Congratulations Shannon and Eric, it’s been such a great pleasure!
