Morgan and Reed moved to Colorado on a leap of Faith.
They knew that they wanted to get married in Colorado, and were in love with everything about it. It just made sense for them to drop everything they knew and move here without so much as a job, place to live, or plan! Talk about spontaneous - these are my kind of people.
I would certainly say things are looking up for them! They hired me to photograph their wedding at the Chatfield Botanic Gardens in Littleton. Together with Wanda Bonner (Blue Linden Weddings) I'm looking so forward to seeing their beautiful Colorado wedding come to life.
This week I wanted to blog about something super fun, super helpful, and super personal!
Right here is my list of the BEST romantic wedding venues in Colorado, based on my experience as a wedding photographer.
When we work at venues we get to see behind the scenes, how the venue operates, what's good, what's bad, and what makes them super special. I've worked at so many amazing wedding venues in Colorado, and these consistently rank as my favorites.
MY COLORADO WEDDING VENUES SHORTLIST
Rachel & George, like many couples, met in college.
Their relationship led to this incredible spring wedding at Baldoria on the Water in Lakewood, CO.
The Cottonwood trees this year in Colorado were INSANE. Kind of like snow - and in a quiet moment together after their ceremony, the cotton sprinkled around them. I had cotton all over myself and my camera bag at the end of the day, but it created some magical photos!
Do you want to know why I love Doug & Hana so much?
Because they didn't care if it was snowing or raining on their wedding day, they were just so excited to be getting married. They saw and understood the value of that day, or that moment, above all else. I appreciate that and believe in it myself!
Their wedding was held in the spring (April), but we were surprised when the day turned into a winter wonderland.
Sometimes Colorado weather throws us for a loop on wedding days. April weddings are always interesting here; it can be 70 and sunny, or 30 and white-out-blizzard.
Doug & Hana's snowy wedding at the Meadows at Marshdale in Evergreen, CO is a classic example of 'never trust the weather report'!
