Though it was Brooke who contacted me about being the photographer for her wedding, she was out east in Virginia finishing up her college degree when it came time to the in-person consultation for her wedding at Wedgewood Brittany Hill in Thornton, Colorado. So I got to meet Bobby and their Maid of Honor to go over the details of the wedding, and to try and catch a glimpse of the story behind this Bride and Groom.
Young and in Love… need I say more?
I had arrived extra early to the venue, to touch base with the venue's coordinator… then meet and cross of a few last items with Brooke. And before I knew it, it was show time. The venue's Bridal Suite is about as amazing as it gets; plenty of room with windows that flood the space with a ton of natural light. Throw in some stylish furniture and a large mirror in the corner and wow. And the Mancave… equally impressive! Being a single photographer for their wedding, I was able to coordinate with both Brooke and Bobby, and pop back and forth for all the getting ready shots before the outdoor ceremony began.
The alter, with the Colorado Mountains in the distance, was perfect for these two; their Wedding even officiated by a longtime family friend. Though short and sweet, the ceremony was filled with emotion as Brooke and Bobby exchanged rings and a vows, and poured their designated colors of sand into a frame that had a photo of the two of them in the center. The venue has a lot of great options for the Formals. But for this young couple, I chose to utilize the front entrance area and a water feature that really made for some unique and one of a kind photos.
The reception, as always, was a lot of fun to watch. And I must say, The Father of the Bride really knows how to cut loose on the dance floor. If my memory is correct, I do believe the Father Daughter dance cut to the Electric Slide about half way through (to Brooke's surprise). As the night wound down, I was able to get Brooke and Bobby back out to the terrace for some additional shots as the sunset over the Colorado Rockies in the distance. And many of their guests joined for those last moments of daylight, and the final moments of Brooke and Bobby's big day.
Congratulations, Brooke and Bobby!
