What an amazing summer of weddings so far! Jennifer & Matthew are just some of my favorite people ever and their wedding was, of course, one of my favorites.
These two had an intimate day with 60 guests. Their ceremony was held at the Denver Botanic Gardens and their reception at the Denver Four Seasons. The teams at both venues are angels and took amazing care of all involved for Jenn & Matt’s day.
I just love smaller weddings. The photo coverage goes so much deeper as we engage with the guests and learn their connections to the couple. So many guests gave us high-fives and encouragement through the day telling us “job well done.” We always feel like family at smaller weddings, but certainly felt accepted as such by Jennifer & Matthew.
My favorite part of the day was Jen’s dance with her father: a classic father-daughter dance to What a Wonderful World turned into a lively, exciting Persian dance! The energy was palpable. Jenn’s aunt and uncle from Iran used that energy as a springboard and continued to dance the whole night with all the wedding guests, despite not speaking much English. It was so sweet to watch!
Though this day was full of smile and positive energy, it was an emotional one too. Sweet Jennifer lost her mother only a few months ago to cancer. They pressed on with the wedding, knowing her mom would’ve wanted that. The day was bittersweet, but I know she was with us.
Matthew & Jennifer, welcome home from your honeymoon in Grenada! What a love story you two have. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your journey. May these images be cherished for generations to come.
SO much love & joy to you both,
Special thank you to all of the amazing vendors who helped make this day a reality. I would recommend every single one of them! What a team!
