The feeling of getting married is truly hard to explain, in a positive way. Just imagine marking the start of a new chapter in your life, saying your I do to the one whom you believe is deserving of your love and submission. This is a momentous event in your life that is unlike all the other days.
On the day of your wedding, you will invite people who truly matter to you - your family and closest friends. Aside from your immediate family and relatives, your closest friends are the ones who feel so excited about this day and so happy that you are finally settling down. The day of your wedding will surely have touching and emotional moments. But there will also be joyful and happy ones when you will smile so widely and laugh so hard with these people who love you.
Just look at this photo that was captured by one of the Denver photographers for this wedding. The bride looks genuinely happy with her bridesmaids as they pose for a shot. We can only assume that these girls here were chosen by the bride because they are the women closest to her, most dear to her, and the ones who love her best. Their smiles and laughter in this picture can attest to that.
The bigger story of the bride, the groom, and their 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 DCPA (which was perfect) and then we took the wedding party for a stroll down Larimer (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 both love to read and travel and have a long list of countries they want to visit. They are adventurous and silly, fun-loving and absolutely darling to the core of their beings. They trusted me implicitly to "do my thing" (which I LOVE) 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 you make me LOVE what I do so very much!
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!
