Kids will always be kids. We hear this all the time. This statement simply means that no matter what you say or do to make a little child act properly, he or she will do what his or her heart says. The kid inside him or her will always win, not because kids are naturally rebellious, but because they are so true to themselves. They don’t pretend in front of other people. Their feelings will always show and they will always choose to follow what they feel. They have not learned to hide their feelings or show the opposite of what they really feel.
And a kid in a wedding is no exception. Like this little flower girl in the photo who cried after seeing the bride wearing her bridal dress. This little girl cannot explain her emotions, but she feels that the bride is about to leave her, that she will marry the man of her dreams and love him above anyone, even above her. This is what’s inside the heart of this little kid, that’s why she’s crying.
Just imagine how hard it is for the bride to see her niece crying moments before she walks down the aisle. Thanks to the Denver wedding photographer who captured this photo. It will surely be a constant reminder of this cute moment before the wedding.
The bigger story of the wedding day - 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!
