Wedding Photography Denver: Sarah and Randall

This nontraditional Denver wedding made for some amazing and unique photographs at the beautiful and authentic Tamayo Mexican restaurant, located downtown Denver on Larimer square. Randall and Sarah were such a fun couple to shoot! Both the bride and groom stayed so relaxed and calm, even as excitement ran through the summer air! This wedding was truly unique and personal, as the happy couple were surrounded only by their closest friends and family… and the wedding photographer of course :)

Sarah was definitely not your typical bride in her short and elegant champagne dress, with her beautiful sash and fun green heels! She looked gorgeous with her hair twisted up and a simple green flower that matched her shoes! I simply adored the bride’s bright and colorful bouquets, composed of orange, yellow, purple and green! They matched the fun, summery and nontraditional theme of the bride’s special day. Her bridal party was composed of her two beautiful and loving sisters, these ladies created such a fun and relaxed environment for everyone! These lovely ladies allowed the day to move very smoothly, without any hectic moments or stressful thoughts, It was just another beautiful wedding day in Denver for Sarah and her sisters.

This special wedding was both refreshing and elegant. Cocktail hour was perfect on the rooftop of Tamayo, overlooking the city, mountains and the charming Larimer square. What a delicious time filled with scrumptious Mexican appetizers, delicious lime and strawberry margaritas, and a fun and delightful DJ. Close family and friends were happy to take photographs together, enjoy the summer sun, and take in the gorgeous surrounding view. After all the guests were done catching up and received their glass of champagne, the quaint ceremony on the festive rooftop began.

The ceremony for the happy couple was incredibly personal and unique, as the bride & groom were completely surrounded by their loved ones from all angles! I loved the uniqueness of this Colorado wedding, although a bit challenging to shoot with family so close together in a small space, but after crawling around searching for the right angle, these wedding photos came out perfectly with the summer light adding a soft and delicate touch. Their moment was incredibly intimate, elegant and symbolic of the special couple. After the marriage certificate was finally signed, all guests toasted and clinked their glasses together, Sarah and Randall were finally official!

After toasts, delicious Mexican specialties, many hugs and a few more margarita’s, it was time to dance under the beautifully lit dance floor. Everyone was having a marvelous time, twirling, line dancing, as well as eating cupcakes and delicious berry pies! What a perfect and special summer night for a Denver wedding. All the guests were thrilled to be celebrating together, and the music was fabulous!

This couple was matched perfectly not only together, but with their choice of a quaint, authentic Mexican restaurant rooftop, it simply made for a perfect Colorado wedding venue. So much thanks to Sarah and Randall for giving me the opportunity to photograph your bright, personal, nontraditional and authentic Denver wedding!

Lauren & Felipe’s Artwork Network Wedding

This was such a fun wedding day!! I am a little biased to anything involving dancers and since Lauren and Felipe met each other in a Mexican dance troupe, the dancing was a big part of the day.  And as dancers tend to be, both Lauren and Felipe are colorful and beautiful people and their wedding celebration was nothing short of the same.  Everything from the dancers and mariachi singers during cocktail hour to the colorful linens and flowers to the brides blue hair and shoes was bright and fun!  Ann Marlin from Cloud 9 Weddings and Papers did such an awesome job coordinating everything flawlessly.  I always love working with Ann!  Epicurean Catering served up a delicious dinner.  Tracy Carolyn was my lovely second shooter, and the Artwork Network was the reception venue- both outstanding!
Check out my favorite images below. I just loved their style, I loved our wedding day itinerary (we had lots of time to shoot the bride and groom downtown!) and I loved witnessing and documenting such an amazing event, at a wonderful venue for two wonderful people I am happy to now call my friends.  Congrats Lauren and Felipe!  I can’t wait for the babies to come :)

Shelley & John Houtsma: Denver Wedding

A couple of weekends ago we had a gorgeous wedding with John and Shelley, a beautiful and very sweet couple who was referred to us by Ann Marlin at Nancy Chase Weddings and Celebrations, who coordinated everything and did an absolutely amazing job pulling all the pieces together for a logistically challenging, but ultimately wonderful wedding day!  The ceremony was at the ever so photogenic venue at the Holy Ghost Church, in downtown Denver and the reception was at the Veselka’s residence in Evergreen, CO.  It was a bit of a trek up the hill, but well worth it! We were greeted at the entrance by trumpeters and the tent and decor looked absolutely fantastic!  T’Da did all the floral and decor inside the tent and everything looked awesome. Catering by Design served up a delicious dinner for everyone and Shelley’s parents surprised her (and everyone) with an AMAZING magician (the head magician at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas) that Shelley had met on her bachlorette trip, and truly truly truly, I’ve never seen anything like it!  He was borderline Chris Angel-like…  bending silverware with his eyes, flying credit cards around the room, pulling cards out of cell phones…  seriously, it was amazing.   We had a great day with everyone involved! A special thank you to Krista Johns ofArtessa Photography for shooting with Matt and I also!  You are always such a dose of sunshine my dear.  And can I also just say, I LOVE my lensbaby!  I was loving the heart filter and the lights in the tent.
