The story of the photo - During her wedding reception at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, Katie was stunning. With a modern pastel color palette for her wedding, she carried a stylish boutique of seasonal flower making a perfect focal point for her bridal portrait. With a chic diamond ring glimmering behind her classic bridal nails, the oversized foliage of her floral arrangement hangs down delicately over her minimalistic wedding dress. When it comes to classic bridal photoshoots, this bride nailed it!
If you're looking to create a chic, minimalistic wedding atmosphere, let’s this Colorado bride be your guide! Forgoing the bridal veil in favor of classic diamond earrings and an updo for her wedding photoshoot, Katie lets her natural beauty shine through with pastel wedding makeup and a simple wedding dress.
The story of the wedding day - Denver wedding photography at Four Seasons: The Four Seasons has become one of my favorite hotels in Denver to photograph weddings. Beyond it's supremely chic and modern atmosphere (which is right up my own personal alley), I love the location right in the heart of downtown. It's within walking distance to the Denver Performing Arts Complex as well as Larimer Square. Given the gorgeous day we had for Kelly and Wade's wedding, we took advantage of this for the first look as well as photos with their large wedding party and their families. It was pure magic! We did the first look at the Denver Center for Performing Arts (DCPA) and then we took the wedding party for a stroll down Larimer Street (and yes, I did stop traffic- as I am known to do on occasion!) and then back to the DCPA for family formals in the beautiful soft light that the covered ceiling provides, even in broad daylight. I am in LOVE with this couple, these photos, and everything about this wedding.
For starters, Kelly and Wade are my ideal couple! Not only do they both look like models, they both love being outdoors and participating in many of the fun activities that our fabulous state provides: hiking, skiing, golfing, running, live music, golf, volleyball (to name a few). They are adventurous and silly, fun-loving and absolutely darling to the core of their beings. They trusted me implicitly to "do my thing" and the images I was able to capture for them are a true reflection of their personalities and the love they have for each other. Thank you Kelly and Wade for being so awesome in every way! Couples like these remind me why I love being a wedding photographer in Colorado.
They had their ceremony on the pool deck and the afternoon rain shower held itself back until the couple literally walked down the aisle. It couldn't have worked out more perfectly. When the rain did decide to fall, Heather and Jenna (the fab planners from Table 6 Productions) were quick on their feet to move cocktail hour down to the space outside the main ballroom and not a beat was missed. It anything, it gave Kelly and Wade a moment to revel in their amazing good luck and grab a few more photos outside before joining the party. And what a party it was! Between the beautiful and heartfelt speeches from Kelly's father, the best man and the maid of honor, their band, Groove Nation, kept the party rocking all night long. I swear they had literally everyone on the dance floor.
Thank you again to Kelly and Wade, Heather and Jenna, the staff at the Four Seasons, and last but not least, to my wonderful second shooter, Sarah Box. It was a A-team effort and I am incredibly proud to have been a part of such a gorgeous wedding!
