There are so many reasons to be alive. It can be because the birth of your child, that smile you got from your high school crush, or something as simple as finding a few dollars in your pocket. All of these things should be appreciated because you never know when the next reason to be happy will come along. But don’t you worry because life is full of surprises and there’ll be a lot of happy memories to look forward to.
The same logic can also be applied to your wedding day. This particular event is filled with so many happy memories. There are so many of them and picking one can be pretty hard. One such part of a wedding is your portrait session. This is usually done by Denver photographers after the ceremony, when all of the joyful emotions are still fresh. If you find yourself in this situation, do remember to look forward to all of the great things in your future. If you keep this thought in mind, you’ll greatly appreciate your spouse and help you overcome every challenge that comes along your way. Of course, don’t forget to have fun with this pictorial too because these photos will be an heirloom for your family.
The bigger story and picture of the bride, groom, and their big 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!
Location: 1101 13th Street Denver, Colorado.
