Laura & Terrance’s wedding at the Inn at City Park

Sometimes you have to just roll with what the weather gods give you on your wedding day. That was the case for Laura and Terrance at their Fort Collins wedding in July. Their ceremony took place at St. Joseph’s Church, followed by photos of the bridal party at CSU. The couple took a stroll down memory lane to their favorite local pub and to the Armstrong Hotel, where they stayed the night. Guests got to take a special trolley down Mountain Avenue from the ceremony to the reception, which is a unique way to transport your guests! The weather was beautiful for most of the day but one thunderstorm cloud rolled over the reception venue, the Inn at City Park, just before their grand entrance and soaked the table settings. Everyone pitched in along with the staff to strip the linens to put them in the dryer and then re-set all the tables, all within an hour! Kudos to their planner Casey at Pink Diamond Events for keeping her cool. But this didn’t faze the guests or the couple, and things we nice and fresh for the rest of the night.

Elisabeth & Adam’s Colorado National Golf Club wedding

Elisabeth and Adam’s wedding took place at Colorado National Golf Club overlooking the Rocky Mountains in the outskirts of Denver on a perfect autumn day. The couple had an emotional First Look which was a perfect way to start the photos before the wedding ceremony. We zipped around on golf carts to get to some nice lookouts. After the ceremony and family photos the bridal party goofed around with the couple and we got some fun shots.  The reception topped off an amazing day for an awesome couple! Colorado National Golf Club is a nice, intimate spot for a wedding

Northern Colorado wedding photographer | Cindy + Chris

Sometimes it takes a disaster to make you realize what’s really important in life. In September Colorado suffered one of the worst flooding events in its recorded history that affected many lives and homes along the Front Range. Besides devastating communities and cutting off major roads, it also affected many couples that were planning on getting married in the mountains to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery. Chris and Cindy were one such couple. They had to make the tough decision to cancel their wedding in Estes Park and organize the whole wedding somewhere else in just one week. Fortunately friends and family were there to help and they found a venue in Wellington in Northern Colorado. Everything worked out in the end, and I was reminded when you get down to it, a wedding is really about sharing a couple’s love with those closest to them. The venue and other details are a bonus (of course, great wedding photography is a must though!). Cindy looked stunning in her blush wedding dress and Chris looked quite dapper in his National Guard ceremonial uniform. So congrats to Cindy and Chris for pulling off a great wedding!
