Stonebrook Manor Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

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.

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.

Inverness Hotel Wedding

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.

Greenbriar Inn Wedding

(by Denver Boulder wedding photography assistant, Moira Kennedy)

This weekend we had the opportunity to return to Boulder’s Greenbriar Inn for yet another beautiful wedding. But first, Maricarmen and Landon met us at Buckingham Park for a pre-wedding photo shoot that started with their first look and included a rather heroic wedding party.

Red Rocks Engagement Shoot

(by Denver Boulder wedding photo assistant, Moira Kennedy)

Last night, we returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre for another engagement shoot with Jessica and Ryan. Even though the weather threatened rain all evening, all we had were some dramatic clouds and a rainbow. With views of both the mountains and Denver (not to mention plenty of rocks, which Jessica - a geologist - really appreciated), Red Rocks turned out to be the perfect place for us to spend a couple hours taking photos and learning new words (pilgarlic, anyone?).

Take a look at some of our favorite photos from this shoot:

Denver Art Museum Engagement Shoot

(by Denver Boulder wedding photo assistant, Moira Kennedy)

We spent some time in downtown Denver this weekend for Megan and Henry’s engagement photo session. Located in the heart of the city, the Denver Art Museum made a great location for this fun shoot Not only did we get some great shots with the artwork, we were just a short walk from some interesting buildings and a park with a view of Colorado’s State Capitol Building. The urban setting will perfectly complement their wedding photos in September at the rustic Della Terra.
