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!

One of the biggest benefits of photographing weddings is getting to see many incredible venues.  We were so excited to photograph Kevin and Lindsay’s wedding at Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs!  Kevin is the sweetest and nicest groom in the history of weddings–Lindsay is such a lucky bride!

The weather held for the ceremony if not the reception.  I love this little moment between Kevin and Lindsay’s dad as he gave her away.

Rain forced the reception inside but the backup location was just as beautiful!

Cory and Josh were married at the adorable chapel at the Garden of the Gods and I was so glad to be able to capture their day!  Cory was a dream to work with–so understanding and focused on the parts of the day that matter. Lindsay Schmidt was my talented second shooter for the day and we couldn’t stop talking about the way Cory lit up after the ceremony and just glowed with happiness.  Their family and friends were so friendly and gracious it was one of the nicest weddings I’ve been to!
