Denver Red Rocks Vow Renewal

Some places just feel special, and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheater is one of them. With the rust-colored rocks and expansive views over Colorado, it’s an idyllic locale for a vow renewal. And with the Bride’s casual-chic BHLDN gown and soft braided ‘do from Liz Gonzalez, lush flowers from Kaitlin Parisho, calligraphy vows and beautiful photos from Emily Jane, this vow renewal is as magical as its setting. See it all here.

From Emily JaneChristian + Amiee posed for a vow renewal in the mountains. Kaitlin and I  flew to Denver because we were looking to inspire brides to do a little something out of the ordinary. We thought that the mountains offered a peaceful intimate feel and the Red Rocks was something that isn’t over saturated.

Romantic Aspen Engagement Session

I was lucky enough to travel out to Colorado last year and the stunning views were so amazing they haven’t left my dreams yet. Tess Pace captured these and more, with this love soaked engagement shoot – complete with one colorful bouquet thanks to Bare Root Flora that I can’t stop staring at. See this and more right this way!

From Tess Pace PhotographySpend any amount of time with Erika and Karim and it’s easy to understand why people are drawn to them. Erika is full of life, love, and an infectious laugh that will light up a room. And Karim has a quick yet quiet wit, fun sense of humor, and big heart. Together, I know life will be one amazing adventure.

Aspen, Colorado, is where Erika and Karim call home and it was the perfect backdrop for this session. We started this glorious day atop Aspen Mountain, and from there, we hopped around to some of Erika and Karim’s favorite places, including the scenic Maroon Bells in the Elk Mountains.

These two are such a beautiful couple – inside and out – and their engagement session was a joy to photograph!!

Whimsical Stars and Constellations-Inspired Barn Wedding

This Colorado couple decided to let the groom’s love of astronomy guide them in planning their July 5th wedding. The day was a whimsical affair with dreamy florals from Cori Cook Floral Design, tables named after constellations, and a first dance to “Fly Me to the Moon.” The stars truly aligned when the bride met her ring bearer—a now-healthy seven-year-old boy to whom she had donated bone marrow to three years prior. Experience all the magic captured by Cassie Rosch in the gallery.

From the Bride…Bryan and I got married on July 5, 2014, 4 years to the day after our first date. Our friends and family are spread throughout the US so it was such a special opportunity to have all of the people we love in one place for the weekend. We took advantage of it by hosting a weekend full of activities, including the bachelor and bachelorette parties, the rehearsal brunch, a huge 4th of July barbecue with nearly all of our wedding guests, and finally the wedding of our dreams that turned out more perfectly than we could have dreamed.

We chose our theme of stars and constellations based on Bryan’s love of astronomy and as a subtle nod to the 4th of July weekend that we chose. It turned out to be so much fun to plan! The star garlands that we hung from the beams of the barn turned out to be a major labor of love, but they were one of my favorite design elements of the day. We used constellations as table names, placed star shaped sparklers at each seat as a name card, and my gift to my bridesmaids were gold pendants personalized with the constellation that correlates with their astrology sign. I scoured Etsy for prints with moon and star related quotes that we placed throughout the barn, and we carried the theme into our music. “A Sky Full of Stars” by Coldplay was played while the bridal party entered the reception, our first dance was to “Fly Me To the Moon” by Frank Sinatra, and before we left we danced to “The Moon Song” by Karen O and Ezra Koenig.

Other special touches included our guest book, which featured a drawing of our venue done by my maid of honor that she gave to us as an engagement present. We cut the cake with a sabre that was my grandfather’s in WWII, and the dessert table was an absolute labor of love put together by my mom, who put together a display of our favorite candies and baked dozens upon dozens of her famous gingersnap and sugar cookies that were devoured by our guests! Bryan doesn’t have a huge sweet tooth but he loves German chocolate cake, and our friend who is a phenomenal baker made one for him as his groom’s cake. I learned calligraphy and did all of the signage, the invitation addresses, the place cards, and the table name signs.

Cori Cook did our stunning floral arrangements, and brilliantly came up with the concept of the tree centerpieces that transformed the barn into a dreamland. Rachael from Charmed Beauty worked miracles to turn the girls’ hair and makeup into masterpieces that lasted throughout the long, hot day. Trenton of Trebled Entertainment got people up and having a blast on the dance floor, and even joined in the dance party himself at times! Sara from Highland Meadows was so kind and helpful, and coordinated the day to keep it running smoothly. Finally, Cassie Rosch captured the day beautifully. She provided us with photos that we will treasure forever and became a true friend in the process. Together they formed a dream team that I would recommend to anyone!

Perhaps the most special part of the weekend (besides marrying Bryan, of course) was getting to meet my ring bearer for the first time! Three years prior to the wedding I donated bone marrow to him after being chosen as a match through the Be The Match donor registry. He is a happy, healthy 7 year old now and having him as part of the wedding was such an exciting and special opportunity to meet in person and to spend time with his family.

At the end of the night, Bryan and I found ourselves alone in the barn singing and dancing our hearts out to “Sweet Caroline” while the rest of the party was outside lining up for our sparkler exit. That moment, knowing that everyone we loved was just outside and soaking up the final moments of such a wonderful day, is one that I will remember forever. We can’t thank everyone enough who helped to make our wedding so perfect!

From Majesta Patterson Weddings & PortraitsAs my trip to Colorado grew closer, I decided to reach out to some Denver-local wedding vendors because I was dying to photograph those big, gorgeous Rocky Mountains and create Colorado magic! With blue skies and green fields, we were pleasantly surprised by a fresh dusting of snow the night before our shoot. Blue Bridal Boutique selected a soft tulled Wtoo gown, creating a delicate balance against the rustic charm at the Chautauqua forest in Boulder. Our florist, Natasha, who also flew in from San Francisco, designed lush arrangements with golds and blues to accent against the majestic flat iron mountains. These bright, organic florals created a beautiful pop of color, complimenting the blue hued snow. Sarah Swell offered her organic gold jewelry to compliment the romanticism of our look. Everything for this shoot just fell into place like it was meant to be; to epitomize that Colorado-esque beauty!
