Mandy + Jack: Wedding at Castle Cliff Estate

We’re always a little partial to weddings in May- partly because it’s also the month we chose to say “I do” 11 years ago and partly because it’s before the hot summer temps get rid of the beautiful green that’s so prevalent in the spring. While spring has had a bit of a rocky start including a fluke snow storm mid month, the first weekend in May was a beautiful one for Mandy & Jack’s wedding at Castle Cliff Estate. If there is one word to describe their wedding it would be details! Lots and lots of details! Everything from vintage sofas and tables, to the church pews brought out for the ceremony, to the bride’s not 1 but 2 dresses. They even had two of their pups join in on the wedding day:-)Their wedding was a photographer’s dream and we couldn’t have asked for a better couple! We absolutely loved getting to work with both Mandy & Jack and their incredibly sweet family & friends. Thank you Cydney from Stiletto Events for the recommendation and for doing such a beautiful job putting everything together. Here’s some of our favorites from the rehearsal and wedding day. It was so much fun getting to use the vintage furniture- the bridal party on the sofa is one of my favorite bridal party shots ever! Mandy & Jack congrats and thank you for trusting us to capture such an important day in your lives- God Bless!

Aubrey + Cameron: Wedding at Castle Cliff Estate

What I love most about running a photography business is the people we’ve met over the years. Folks that either because of our vocations, age differences or any number of other reasons, we never would have met otherwise. To say that Aubrey & Cameron are an amazing couple would be a huge understatement. From the moment we were introduced we knew we were going to LOVE working with these guys. Of course they are one of the most adorable couples you could ever meet but on top of that they are super sweet just like all their family and friends! They were married two weeks ago at a new venue in Sedalia- Castle Cliff Estate. The location is absolutely gorgeous! And if the site itself wasn’t pretty enough the amazing and talented Cydney Johnson of Stiletto Events and Oakes Fields Florist made it even more beautiful with all the details that went into their wedding. Did I mention details?!? Aubrey’s dad MADE the arbor they stood under for the ceremony and that custom cake topper from Kelley Kakes– I want to get married again just to have one made for us:-)You might remember that these are the two who mountain bike & dirt bike- both of which are part of my life’s obsession. Of course when they mentioned they had custom dirt bike jerseys for all the groomsmen I was only too happy to add that to the day’s photos. Oh and I cannot forget to mention the coolest get away car ever- a Lamborghini! It was a surprise from Aubrey and the family and Cameron’s reaction was priceless! I could go on and on and on about this wedding but there’s way too many pictures to share so pull up a chair because this post is going to be long:-)Congrats Aubrey + Cameron and may God Bless your marriage!!!! We are so happy you chose us to capture this day for you!

Christy + Matt: Wedding in Castle Pines

With the unofficial end of summer over Labor Day weekend, it’s the start of a busy fall season with lots of sessions to capture what I believe to be the most beautiful time of the year in Colorado. The fall season kicked off with Christy & Matt’s wedding the first Saturday of September. We have to send a big THANK YOU to Cydney from Stiletto Events for bringing us this cute couple and to Shelly & Dan who hosted the wedding on their gorgeous property in Castle Pines. It was also nice to have such a short drive from our new house to the wedding that day! Cydney did a fabulous job both in planning and with all the decorations for the wedding (no wonder she just earned the honor of 1st Place from the Denver’s A-List this year). I had to include a few extra pictures to share the details that went into the day. They held the ceremony shortly before sunset so immediately after we took the family portraits we caught the last of the sun setting behind the mountains and got the most gorgeous light!! I just love the images we got of Christy & Matt in the sunset. During the reception they opted to go without a tent and instead filled the property with little lights from the ground to the trees which created a very romantic atmosphere that was a lot of fun to photograph. We had a great time and wish Christy & Matt the best. Here’s some of our favorites- enjoy!
