What could be more heart-warming than the moment the bride shows up in her wedding dress and starts to walk down the aisle? There is no doubt that the same amount of tears or even more are shed by the couple, their families, and all the guests when the father of the bride finally says his speech on the day of his daughter’s wedding.
Sure, the speeches of the couple’s best friends are touching and heartfelt. But they are nothing compared to the words a father can say to his princess. He has been watching over her since birth. He knows her so well and he loves her the most. Giving your daughter’s hand to her husband cannot be any harder for a father. But just the same, he has to do it for the joy for his princess.
These things and a lot more are going on inside the mind of a father on the day of his daughter’s wedding. With this picture of the father’s bride that was captured by a Denver wedding photographer, you can only surmise how much tears he shed during this speech and how much the guests cried while they listen to a father’s heart.
What was the bigger story of the wedding day and it's couple? Beano's Cabin Wedding: Out of all of the amazing venues to choose from in the Rocky Mountains, Beano's Cabin, located mid-mountain in Beaver Creek is my #1 favorite venue of all time! Truly, I have never had less than a fantastic, two thumbs up, over the top, amazing experience photographing there! Couples that choose that venue are always people that I have an instant report with, the weddings are always beyond gorgeous, and to top it off, I always get a really amazing dinner! HA!
Emily and Alex's wedding was no exception. And talk about LUCKY! We were minutes away from moving the ceremony inside due to intermittent rain showers, but the wonderful Beano's staff and the fantastic planners were watching the weather radar like hawks and saw an opening. We moved the ceremony up about 10 minutes and the timing was impeccable! Alex and Emily got to have their picture perfect outdoor ceremony outside with the mountain backdrop, just like they had always dreamed of, and their guests got to have the scenic experience that had been planned for them.
They planned their destination wedding with the help of the wonderful ladies from Bella Event Design & Planning. Emily, the owner, recommended me to the couple and after checking out my work online, they hired me without ever meeting me. We clicked instantaneously and I spent the day photographing them like they were old friends.
Before I dive into sharing their beautiful images (which I am over the moon about), I want to give thanks to all of the fabulous vendors that made this day so perfect. Vintage Magnolia provided the lovely floral arrangements, bouquets and boutonnieres. Mountain Flour provided the delicious wedding cake (I know because I tried it!). Diamond Empire Band rocked the house during the reception. And finally, a massive thanks to everyone at Beano's Cabin that provided 5-star service not only to the couple and the guests, but to all of the vendors too. Thank you also to my associate, Telly Weddon, for being a total trooper and a fantastic second shooter! We rocked it sister!
Lastly, I just have to share a few words from the bride because these kinds of things are what keep me so inspired and passionate about what I do!
First of all, we LOVE the photos!!! Could not be more happy with how they all turned out. You and Telly did such a fantastic job. We can't thank you enough! We can't stop looking through all the wedding photos over and over -- They all bring back such amazing memories and make us want to renew our vows already ;-) You captured everything perfectly!!! Our family and friends cannot stop raving about them either!
We will recommend you to anyone and everyone! Truly, we may be your biggest fans! :-)
Emily & Alex
