You could go lots of different places in Colorado for equally beautiful settings for your wedding. The third time I (Bill) guest photographed for our good friend Kent Meireis. From wedding party shenanigans ahead of the ceremony to Nick spontaneously throwing Maddie over his shoulder during the recessional to doing ski shots with their officiant and his wife, I absolutely loved spending the day with Maddie & Nick, not to mention Kent (thanks, Kent!). Below are a few of our favorite details and moments from the day.
The fantastic team:
Venue: Nick’s family home
Planner: Claire + team of Claire Gordon Events
Catering: Wild Horse Catering-We Love Food
Florist: Margaret’s Garden
DJ: DJ Rockstar Aaron
Wedding gown: Little White Dress
Make-up/hair: Kaylee Martin & Ally Triolo / Monika Barnett
Officiant: (Former U.S. Senator) Mark Udall
Mr. Udall, Maddie’s uncle and having watched her grow up, served as officiant.
Ok, so how cute is this? The kids, on their own, decided to start helping out the catering staff move the chivari chairs from the ceremony pasture to the reception tent. Pretty sure this spectacle competed with the mountain backdrop for guests’ attention.
