Caitlin and Dan certainly had a wedding to remember – and I was lucky enough to be there every step of the way! It’s always very special to see two wonderful and loving families come together in honor of a special couple, and that’s exactly what this day was all about. The entire day was filled with laughter and tears, both happy and sad. I’ve been excited for this couple and their big day ever since I first met Caitlin and Dan, who are both incredibly genuine, caring and fun people. We had a great time taking Caitlin & Dan’s engagement photos a couple of months ago on a beautiful fall day, and I JUST knew their wedding was going to be just as fantastic as they are.
The ceremony took place at the Montview Presbyterian Church in Park Hill, followed by the reception at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Denver. Before the ceremony, all the ladies gathered together in the hotel suite where the beautiful bride was ready to finally put on her gorgeous wedding dress. It was an incredible and emotional moment for all of us! Caitlin looked breathtaking in her elegant dress, along with the long, classic and simply beautiful veil. The bride and groom also decided to do a romantic idea of writing each other a note on the actual wedding day- I loved it! As Caitlin read Dan’s love letter I could see Caitlin’s eyes starting to tear up despite her efforts! It was another truly touching moment that I was happy to capture and photograph.
Once the bride got her fantastic Jimmy Choo heels on- it was time to get hitched! The ceremony was very beautiful, and filled with so many loving friends and family. It wasn’t hard to tell how happy everyone was for the bride and groom. Once the couple was officially announced man and wife, they took off down the aisle simply BEAMING with joy, in fact- those are some of my favorite photos of the newlyweds 🙂
After exiting the church in style (pretty sparklers everywhere!) it was time for cocktail hour and the reception at the Ritz Carlton. With a piano player, wonderful appetizers and muted metallic colors of gold, bronze, silver, copper & pewter the reception room looked incredibly elegant, along with amazing flowers from Newberry Brother’s florist. After some hilarious toasts and heartfelt hugs- the dance floor filled up with friends and family ready to celebrate!
Thank you to Caitlin and Dan for the amazing experience and fantastic wedding. I had an amazing time and can’t wait to see you both again 🙂 XoXo
