Dawson + Elycia's February Wedding Day // Estes Park // Della Terra
The couple chose a cold January day in Estes Park to say their vows. We were impressed by Della Terra's team, who kept us informed throughout the day and provided heaters for the outdoor ceremony. Elycia typed personal letters to each of her bridesmaids with their gifts, and tears followed. Dawson gifted each groomsman matching scarves to wear during the chilly ceremony. The couple's bridal party pushed through the freezing temps for an extremely quick outdoor session. The ladies' sparkly gowns provided plenty of color and personality against the snow. Be sure to check out the bride's unique choice of hand placement in her photo with her girls!
Compliments to Chef Alec Bruno for a beautiful meal!
Don't let these two fool you. It was below freezing and no one could feel their limbs! Elycia's bridesmaids created the biggest pile of hand warmers we've ever seen. But when your wedding is at the Della Terra in Estes Park, you power through for an outdoor ceremony and winter pictures! More photos coming your way soon!
Wisconsin Winter Engagement Photos // De Soto, Wisconsin // Clifton|Marie Photography
It was a freezing December day on top of this windy Wisconsin bluff. I poured spiked hot cocoa into their mugs. These two gave me warm smiles and cozy cuddles to capture on a Mississippi River backdrop! We can't wait to photograph their cathedral ceremony and classy reception at the Waterfront of La Crosse. Beautiful makeup by Brooke Weber.
Daniel's Park // Sedalia, Colorado
We were lucky to snag one of Colorado's unusually warm days in December for this family photo shoot in Daniel's Park. Blankies in hand, we explored a trail that looked promising. The kids were not afraid to show off the goofy faces I requested! Can you guess which photo the family used for their Holiday card this year?!
The day began at the Hilton Garden Inn of downtown Denver where bridesmaids began beautifying and Adrianne's grandmother put last minute touches on her stunning wedding dress. I don't think the dress would have even had a bustle had it not been for Grandma's sowing skills! The couple exchanged thoughtful wedding gifts and the wedding party kept the energy high all day. Before the ceremony, the bridesmaids and mother of the bride gathered around the bride in a circle. They each told her things they loved most dearly about her and gave her well wishes in her marriage. There wasn't a dry eye in the room. We were lucky to grab a shot on stage at the Ellie Caulkins with the bridesmaids.
After a traditional Jewish marriage ceremony, Justin smashed that glass with his foot like he had practiced! The couple, their witnesses and the Rabbi signed the Ketubah. Another favorite detail included the garter hidden in balloons dropped from the ceiling. Watching all the single men pop balloons until they found the garter entertained the whole room. We also set up a backdrop for a little photo booth action as well! All of the guests participated in the traditional Horah dance which was quite the spectacle to photograph. We had such a great time documenting this wedding. Mazel Tov!

When a bride and groom choose a mansion wedding venue as authentic as The Manor House in Littleton, CO we know its going to be a memorable day. The Manor House offers a brunch wedding package for couples who like to change it up from the usual evening wedding. After midday nuptials with Denver as a natural ceremony altar, the guests enjoyed brunch and champagne in a historical setting.
An intimate farmhouse setting to say their vows at Lone Hawk Farms in Longmont, Colorado. любовь и радость!
These two chose an opera house setting in downtown Denver to say their vows. The Ellie Caulkins Opera House provided an elegant setting to join their families. More to come, and thank you to Aimee with Prisma Wedding and Events!
We sipped the beer at Guanella Pass Brewing Company, ate Amanda's homemade chocolate chip cookies and took pictures of Eric and Amanda's happiness in Georgetown, Colorado. It was truly a Colorado day.
From the delicate lace on Alica's dress to the love notes Ben wrote on the soles of her shoes, this Wichita wedding was full of loving words, thoughtful details and goofy faces! I happily took home a few succulent center pieces all the way back to Colorado. In honor of their one year anniversary, here are a few favorites from their Wichita wedding at Botanica.
Megan and Justin spent their entire wedding day with family and guests at the Estes Park Fall River Lodge. Estes Park offered the fall colors we were hoping for to frame our shots of these two love birds.
