Della Terra Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

Where better to spend the last wedding of our busy part of the season than at Della Terra, a beautiful mountain lodge tucked away near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park? The venue was a perfect complement to Megan and Henry’s downtown engagement photo session.

The blue Megan chose for her bridesmaids and to accent her dress popped next to the fall colors that covered Estes Park.

Wild Basin Lodge Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

With one day of rest (and football!), we headed into the mountains for Kim and Julie’s Monday wedding at the Wild Basin Lodge. We were thrilled to be back at the Lodge for the first time since we photographed Catherine and Greg’s wedding almost four years ago; if you’ve never been, it’s worth a stay on your next visit to Rocky Mountain National Park.

While we photographed the brides putting the finishing touches on their wedding attire inside, the rain poured down and we feared our perfect rain-free streak would be ruined.

We had two weddings this weekend, keeping us quite busy—but also resulting in a lot of wonderful photos of happy people! Starting on Saturday, we headed down to Golden for Lizzie and Zach’s wedding and began by capturing the finishing touches of the wedding party preparations at the Table Mountain Inn.

After a busy Sunday at the Rocky Mountain Bridal Show, we turned right around this week to photograph Mallory and Paul’s wedding on Monday at the Stonebrook Manor. And we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting.

Leadville Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

Both being science educators, Mike and Stacy found plenty of ways to express their passion for nature during their wedding this past weekend, with a rustic ceremony setting at the base of Mt. Massive, woodsy decor featuring photos of their various adventures, and a celestial tie for the groom. Not to mention, Mike’s ring was made of copper, while Stacy’s was constructed from a meteorite.

Wiens Ranch Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

This weekend, we had the chance to hang out again with a wonderful couple in an absolutely jaw-dropping location. Seanee and Jeremy’s wedding at Wiens Ranch in Sedalia, CO, was quintessentially American: the bride was a nurse, the groom was a fireman, and they were surrounded by friends and family on a beautiful horse ranch—with perfect weather to boot!

We started the day with the girls getting ready in a little farm house. Seanee completed her wedding attire with cowboy boots and a bouquet made from wheat and heather.

Hudson Gardens Wedding

We shook things up this week with a Thursday wedding at one of our favorite locations: Hudson Gardens in Littleton. Victoria and Rob chose the Rose Garden to exchange vows and, despite some rain early in the day, the weather couldn’t have been more beautiful.

Twin Lakes Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

If you’re headed to Aspen in the summertime during the handful of months the Independence Pass is open, you’ll find yourself passing through Twin Lakes. This little town is big on awe-inspiring views and was the setting for Lorena and Drew’s wedding this past weekend.

Their day started with both the guys and the girls getting ready at A Wolf Den Bed and Breakfast.

Saturday’s dramatic weather perfectly complemented an equally dramatic location for Zoie and Chris’s wedding at the Inverness Hotel. We started our day with both the guys and the girls as they put the finishing touches on their wedding attire.
