I had geared myself up for this to be a “SUPER WEDDING” over the past 8 months since Emily booked her wedding with me. It was truly amazing to say the least… and I just love brides that want so many photos! We started our day at The Brown Palace in Denver for getting ready shots. Drew Fritchel was my 2nd shooter for the day and he hung out with the men and I got the pleasure of photographing the ladies while they were getting all dressed up. Jennifer York did Emily’s make up and it turned out perfect – and then off to the very beautiful St. Johns Cathedral. Myself, coming from the midwest where we had so many gothic and grand old church buildings around – it is more of a rarity in Denver. I get so excited to photograph at St. John’s as it is one of the few really grand cathedrals in Colorado. Newberry Brothers decked out this wedding with all the beautiful flowers… but honestly – those table centerpieces at the reception were sooooo amazing!
Super thoughtful of their guests – Emily & David had a bus that transported all of us and guests from the cathedral to the reception while they whisked away in a horse drawn carriage from St. Johns to The Denver Art Museum. We make a little pit stop across the street at Civic Center Park for some fun wedding party photos before heading in for the reception.
After heading down from cocktail hour there was a toast, and a beautiful speech about the “Fallen Soldiers Table” that they had set at the reception. Then a really beautiful night of dancing and fun for all the guests. Emily had a smile on her face every second from the time I first saw her face that day…. and right until the nights end.
