goodness gracious what a sweet day this truly was. jaime + collin chose wedgewood on boulder creek as the place to tie the knot with their closest family and friends! the day was incredibly intimate and sweet in every way. I have never felt so peaceful on wedding day before! there was no stress, no running around like crazy, and only happy happy tears!
jaimes gorgeous dress was MADE by her sweet mother, hand made and fit her flawlessly! it was the sweetest touch of something special for this gorgeous bride
the day began with jaime + collin getting ready with their families and friends before we snuck away for their first look next to the creek.
jaime + collins ceremony was tender and intimate in every way. surrounded by sweet family and friends it was easy to see how much love these two are showered with, especially on their wedding day.
of course we had to sneak back towards the creek for photos of these two cuties before they jetted off to celebrate on the dance floor, and boy was it the most perfect setting for these two! string lights and soft florals filled the whole space and every bit of the day was so warm and loving
every little detail was thought of for these two. each seat at the farm tables had a gift with the couples initials and the tables were adorned with gorgeous florals that the brides sister in law and the Painted Prim Rose created just for the day!
i wont evem lie.. my favorite cake in the history of ever was this one! i love the delicate design and sweet flowers, BUT the best best part was the coconut cake with fresh coconut shreds mixed in with fresh passionfruit in between the layers! SO DANG DELICIOUS! thank you Kelly Leigh Cakes for this amazing cake!
Wedgewood at Boulder Creek is one of my very favorite venues in Colorado and they did an amazing job at making the space special and tailored to jaime + collin! the sweet farm tables and chairs made it feel so put together and the staff is always so helpful and kind! such a great venue and it was so perfect fort his wedding day!
everything was so very perfect in every way. I am so very grateful to have captured this gorgeous wedding and the sweet love jaime + collin share! thank you thank you jaime + collin for choosing me and for sharing your day with me!
oh my oh my oh MY goodness was this day full of big smiles, happy tears, and sweet kisses!! emma + travis tied the knot in a special ceremony at first free church in lincoln, ne!
the day started with everyone getting ready at the church and sharing sweet moments during their first look and family photos!
every bit of emma + travis' ceremony was meaningful and full of sweet love. these two have such a true love for one another, and seeing everyone who loves them watch as they made it official was so special in every way.
himark golf course in lincoln, ne was just down the road and SO worth it! we snuck of to the golf course (more than once!) and let these two snuggle as the sun set. this golf course is so beautiful and helped us capture the sweet love they share
thank you thank you to emma + travis and everyone who came together to make this day SO amazing!! it was so beautiful in every way and I am so very grateful to have been a part of it!
I will be forever grateful for my mom and her work friends, it always leads to amazing weddings, gorgeous brides, and really really amazing nights!! This group was no different, my mama met Leslie through work and I am so so thankful she chose us to photograph her oh so perfect wedding day with Seth!
When I say no detail was missed, I really mean it. From the barrels holding up the cake and dessert table to the gorgeous alter that Leslie and Seth stood under, it was all flawless (I wanted to mentally pin so many things to my Pinterest boards!)
So, a secret I usually don't share (but I'll let you in on it) I love, I mean LOVE getting detail shots during a ceremony, I love hiding behind the groomsmen and sneaking a shot of the groom wipe a tear from the brides face. There just isn't anything better and I apologize in advance if you get a glimpse of me sneaking around but I PROMISE its so so worth it in the end!
SEE WHAT I MEAN!!!
So there was this giant and gorgeous tree smack dab in the middle of the green grass just across from the ceremony location, and the venue director snagged Leslie and Seth and took us all off to the tree just moments after the ceremony and THANK GOODNESS because I could see the glow radiating off these two who just tied the knot and boy oh boy was this spot EVERYTHING.
Leslie was not your average bride, she wore a two piece dress. Lace top and draped light pink skirt and UGH I adored every bit, and she rocked her ring so perfectly, it was just flawless.
Honestly, I wanted to cry after this wedding. Everything was absolutely AMAZING and I am so so grateful to have shared the day with my mom, Markie and this bride and groom!!
Aahhh, one of my favorite moments from photographing a wedding is when I get home, upload and process all the images, and come across a few that just make my heart skip a beat, those photos I can stop myself from editing and exporting to send over to my client to show them how incredible their day really was, and these images right here make me sooo happy, I hope they help you see just a bit into the perfect day that was Abby + Byrons wedding
Thank you thank you thank you to my second shooters Markie and my mama Marlene for helping me with this wedding, I was in the bridal party so I had to step back and hand the reins to them to cover the ceremony and bridal party photos and I am SO thankful!!
Isn't this couple GORGEOUS
I was in tears this whole day for several reasons, one of them being how incredibly delicious this cake looks!!
I just LOVED every little bit of this incredible day, and couldn't be happier to see two incredible people vow to spend the rest of their days together
Thank you Abby + Byron and love you both so very much!!
I met Abbie in college... (I can say that like it was forever ago because I am officially post-grad!)
My roommate freshman year worked with Abbie and just knew her and I HAD to meet, and she was right. Abbie + I connected instantly over our excitement to go through sorority recruitment, she was my best pal through the whole process, and even when we joined different sororities I loved seeing her at events and around campus (and spending time in her dorm because hers had AC and mine didn't!!)
When I found out Ryan proposed to Abbie, I wasn't surprised at all. I think everyone could see that he is so in love with her, it was so easy to tell that they were meant to spend forever together
When Abbie asked me to be the photographer for her very special day I was so honored (she was my first bride EVER!) I was so happy she trusted me to capture such an important day to her, and I also knew that she wouldn't skip any detail, the day would be PERFECT!
So, of course I said yes, and booked her engagement session!
Abbie + Ryans wedding day was nothing short of perfect, the morning ceremony was gorgeous and I may have shed a tear or two while listening to their vows to each other
The ceremony and reception were held at Willow Ridge Manor in Morrison, Colorado - just next to Red Rocks Ampitheater, thank goodness because we had some of our own red rocks to work with after the ceremony!
I just loved every little detail of this very special day! Thank you thank you Abbie + Ryan for trusting me to capture such a special day and for sharing your love!
THANK YOU to all the amazing vendors who made this gorgeous day happen!

some of my favorite shots - all the shots here and below are my own - to see the entire photos including my moms photos check out her website and blog (marlenegrooms.com) look how cute she is too :-)
The day started with my mom and I heading up to Breck, after a well needed stop at Starbucks of course. We arrived as the bride was beginning her makeup and hair just before she stepped into her dress, her daughter, sister, and mother were all around her gawking over how beautiful she was. My mom and I were just so happy to be capturing these incredible moments of this families life. It was heart warming. Quickly the ceremony was underway - a small group of close loved ones joined the couple outside under a tent with lights and flowers facing Breckenridge mountain, a stunning view. The couple had a loving ceremony full of family traditions and laughter. I truly hoped I captured the happiness from this wedding because I am sure I had the biggest smile the entire time. I may have just been a second shooter for my mom, who captured unbelievable photos (check out her blog and website!) but I learned so much and gained so much experience. We were even visited by a fox during the couples shoot, and i got a great picture of him! I am so glad to have been able to be at this beautiful wedding and take these photographs - I dream of a wedding this loving and happy
Thank you to my mom for having me at her side through her journey as a photographer, and thank you Christie + Cory for your happy marriage, your special day was special for me too and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
