Annika & Keith were married at Willowbrook Amphitheater in Morrison, just south of Denver. It’s a horseshoe-shaped natural rock formation, sort of like a large cave with an opening on one end and a skylight in the middle. It’s one of the most unique wedding venues in Colorado that I’ve been to, perhaps anywhere. They Annika wanted natural wedding photography by a photojournalist, so we are on the same page. Just before the music started at the ceremony, their dog got loose and ran down the aisle into Keith’s arms. The best moments are unscripted, always.
Mini & Jung had their ceremony and reception at the Magnolia Hotel Denver, which has a huge ballroom across the street from the main hotel. They are a surprising couple, very polite and somewhat reserved. Until the music starts.
Michelle and Kody’s wedding at Willow Ridge Manor, just outside of Denver, reflected them well; low-key, down to earth, and real. They wanted their pictures to be the same, no silliness or staged moments, just honest documentary photography of their wedding. Which always makes me happy.
Emily and Phil had an intimate wedding at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion in Denver. It’s a beautiful wedding venue in Capitol Hill, across the street from the Governor’s Mansion. It was a simple ceremony officiated by a friend, with cocktails on the veranda, with dinner and toasts in the main hall and dancing in the ballroom. Everything that was needed, with nothing more. Classy.
