Clara and Addy were married on the last day of July at the Denver LDS temple before celebrating with a family luncheon followed by their ring ceremony and reception at The Pinery in Black Forest.  The weather gave us a little bit of everything, but nothing could dampen Clara’s thousand watt smile at marrying Addy.  It was so much fun to work with them and I have no doubt that they are delighting in newlywed life!

Erin and Harry were married last year in at the courthouse, but decided to celebrate their one year anniversary with a beautiful wedding celebration with their family and friends.  Erin and her team of friends and family put together incredible details and a beautiful day complete with a canoe full of ice for drinks, a balloon backdropped photobooth, and food trucks for dinner.  Erin has all the instincts of an amazing pro wedding planner!  The weather refused to provide the sunshine that Erin and I were hoping for in the evening, but it did cooperate in raining only before the ceremony and after we’d finished portraits, so we did have some luck with the rain timing!

I have been so excited to share photos from this wedding that they have been popping out in sneak peeks all over the place these past few weeks!  Aly and Nick were so lovely to work with, so sweet to each other, that it almost wasn’t fair that the camera also loves them like crazy.  (You can’t hear me, but I’m sighing little contented photographer sighs over here.)  Nic and I were so excited to shoot at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver and are more than a little jealous that this incredible cathedral is Nick and Aly’s home parish!  (There are a lot of Nic/ks floating around in this post so hang in there.)  After their beautiful nuptial mass it was over to Hudson Gardens where we took some of my most favorite bride and groom portraits ever.  So much so that I’m throwing tradition to the wind and leading with them.  I just can’t wait to share!


With that out of my system we can go back to a more chronological sharing of this beautiful couple and their gorgeous wedding day!




The Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is stunning.  The stained glass is breathtaking and I can’t wait to return to share it with Will and Ellie.



Monet’s Place in Hudson Gardens was showing off that day and we amazingly had it all to ourselves!


The reception was full of so many smiles and displays of Aly and Nick’s love for each other and their family and friends.  It was treat to capture it for them!
