Okay, folks, the countdown is on. We have just TWO more weddings to add to our Journal! And are they good ones? You better believe they are.
As many of you know, 2016 was our last year as full-time wedding photographers. Yup, 2016 was crazy, huh? Yea, so well, we had hoped to share these final weddings with you late last year, but as it is wont to do, life stepped in, so we’re excited to share it now and start 2017 off on a high note! Don’t think the delay is indicative of how excited we are to share these weddings with you.
The first of the two weddings is Kat & Nick’s fun, urban wedding in downtown Denver. The couple worked with Heather Allen who not only helped them design an affair unique to them, but found a relatively last-minute venue when their contracted venue suddenly closed; leaving many, many couples in the lurch. With just a few short months to go, Heather was able to secure their Saturday wedding date during a busy Fall wedding season and they ultimately landed at The Denver Art Museum. We can’t think of a more stunning and unique backdrop for a wedding reception than this architecturally significant museum.
The weather gods smiled down upon us all that day, too and K&N found a perfect, sunny Fall day on which to start this new phase of their lives. After their beautiful, traditional greek ceremony at Denver’s Greek Orthodox Cathedral, guests gathered in the outdoor sculpture garden before being welcomed inside to the grand Ponti Hall for the reception, during wish they surprised two of their guests who were celebrating birthdays with cupcakes! Such a fun and wonderful day for a fun and wonderful couple. Want to see a few of our faves?

Kat & Nick, some of our favorite moments from your wedding include:
The hee-hee moment you had each drinking from the chalice during your ceremony. Listening to Hunter play guitar so eloquently. The kids enthusiastically blowing bubbles at you–we were glad they weren’t throwing something substantial! The relaxed drive back downtown in your vintage car–just long enough to give yourselves some quiet time. Then…that roar of your guests as you descended the steps for the first time from the balcony to your reception floor. Little Man Ice Cream! (’nuff said) Calling out your family members also celebrating birthdays that day and presenting them with their own frosting-laden cupcake. Gathering in a giant circle to watch you, Nick, and so many others display your flexibility and coordination kneeling down to grab a full glass sitting on the floor with your mouths and tip it back spilling nary a drop! There must be a name for that–what is it? Either way, it was impressive.
Congratulations, you two!
