Laura & Gavin’s Wedding at Lionscrest Manor in Lyons, Colorado

Laura & Gavin’s Wedding at Lionscrest Manor in Lyons, Colorado

When we first moved to Boulder we worked closely with our realtor Chad St. Onge and his awesome team, one of whom is the wonderful Laura. She and Gavin were engaged in Europe shortly before we moved out here and we were so excited when they wanted to talk with us about shooting their wedding up in Lyons, just a short drive outside of Boulder. We all hit it off and the only thing we were bummed about is that Summer 2014 seemed so far away at the time!

You might remember hers and Gavin’s Boulder engagement session from a couple of months ago and their wedding was done in true Colorado fashion. Just look at that view! As you’ll see their nieces and nephews enjoyed running around the grounds, as well.

Below are just a few of our favorite moments and details from their celebration, and of course you can see everything on their gallery. The password is Laura’s maiden name and is case-sensitive. Enjoy!

Dear l&g,

Some of our favorite moments while photographing your wedding include:
Gavin, your arrival at Lyonscrest Manor with your groomsmen was among the most celebratory we’ve ever seen. Joyous, fun, tight with your guys. It was awesome. That mischievous grin on your face, Laura, as you approached Gavin during your first sight. For each of you, when your respective moms saw you dressed for the ceremony that day, they had the most loving, caring, adoring looks on their faces. Your maid of honor’s assertion, holding up her iPhone, that she was being a true Boulder-ite by going paperless with her toast, ha! The semblance of comity (just a semblance) during your cake cutting. You knew you had to do it.

Congratulations, you two!

xoxo…

Engaged! in Boulder with Laura & Gavin

Engaged! in Boulder with Laura & Gavin

Our first engagement of spring was with Gavin and Laura, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We’ve known Laura since early last year when we were first considering a move to Boulder. As a Realtor with Chad St. Onge she helped us find just the right place for us being new to the city. We can’t wait to document their wedding next month up in Lyons too, but in the meantime we’re happy sharing a few favorite images from their engagement session, done up at Castle Rock Trailhead here in Boulder.  Gorgeous scenery, as you can well imagine, and it didn’t hurt that the couple was up for anything and everything, including scrambling up rock faces for just the right pose. Want to see more? Their entire engagement session can be found here. The password is Laura’s maiden name and is case-sensitive.

Annie & Adam’s Wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch

Annie & Adam’s Wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch

You may have remembered the floods that ravaged Colorado last year (it got press as far away as Scotland). A lot of people were displaced, and several had their homes demolished. Houses weren’t the only thing swept away; venues, many with weddings scheduled for that weekend, were also severely damaged. Annie & Adam’s original choice for their wedding was one of those affected. But thanks to a Facebook group, Save My Colorado Wedding, many of these couples found alternate venues, usually changing their wedding date in the process.

We were delighted to assist a good friend, Liesl, as A&A changed their date to one for which Liesl was already commissioned. So we stepped into shoot the weekend’s festivities at the beautifully rustic Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. A&A were such a relaxed, happy couple, and we couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2014. Here are a few of our favorite moments from the day, and we hope you enjoy!

Venue: Devil’s Thumb Ranch
Planner: Jessica Adler of JA Special Events
Band: Kinetix
Florist: Sweet Pea Flowers
Video: Pure Cinematography
Lighting: Pure Energy
Stationery: Jenny Wittlinger
Calligraphy: Bumble B Design

Dear a&a,

Some of our very favorite moments from your wedding day include:

Your first sight, when all your built-up nervous energy just utterly washed away. The readings during your ceremony, particularly  Adam’s brother, as he became overwhelmed with love. The awe your guests felt when they walked into the barn for the first time for your ceremony. When your niece and nephew wanted to join in during your first dance–classic. The tenderness with which you first looked at Adam after your dad escorted you down the aisle, Annie. Your laughter-especially during your hora.

Congratulations, you two and we can’t wait to share a beer with you soon at your favorite brewery!

xoxo…
