Colleen and Paul’s Lyons River Bend wedding was so beautiful that it was chosen to be featured on BRIDES online, and I’m thrilled to share some of my personal favorites here! Colleen said that she and Paul’s vision was to create a wedding that was, “elegant and natural,” so along with We Tie the Knots, they “…kept the color scheme very neutral and planned a romantic dinner in the middle of this rugged canyon.”
The day started at Hotel Boulderado, where I immediately fell in love with the hotel’s gorgeous floral wallpaper. It was the perfect backdrop for photographing Colleen’s stunning dress, jewelry, and other bridal details before we headed to River Bend.
Both Colleen and Paul were so calm before their wedding ceremony, and they chose to wait to see each other until Colleen walked down the aisle. First looks are wonderful (and I adore photographing them!), but it adds another element of excitement when couples choose to wait to see each other. I had a first look with my husband, and I’m so glad we did, so I think both choices are equally perfect.
Liz Griffith of Cori Cook Floral Design created stunning arrangements for Colleen and Paul! Everything from the boutonnieres to the center pieces were a work of art!
Romantics with the bride and groom are always my favorite part of the day, and Colleen and Paul chose the perfect location and time of year for a stunning backdrop! Fall in Colorado is just about as beautiful as it gets!
Thank you Colleen and Paul for choosing me as your wedding photographer! Happy Anniversary, and best wishes for a lifetime of love and happiness together!
