Arieana and Mani planned the perfect day for their wedding. Everyone knew it. From the start it was easy, fun, focused and energetic. As soon as I walked into the getting ready room at the Denver Maryott Park Meadows, I was shocked at how calm and chill it was. All the girls were in their cute flannels just hanging out and drinking mimosas. Then the boys joined! I was nervous at first that Mani was going to see Arieana but they had spent the whole morning together. That is what they wanted to do. Spend the whole day together. Plus, later he would get to see her in her dress and he would be wowed.
Cielo at Castle Pines is one of my favorite spots for fall. All around it there are yellows, oranges and reds. The Olive and Poppy did a great job adding their little pops of colors to the surroundings. The area just seemed to be glowing. But, of course, Mani and Arieana were glowing more. They were having a great time! The whole wedding party was fun. They were cracking jokes and laughing. They were perfectly difficult to wrangle. This I actually love because it means that they are distracted by hanging out and enjoying each other’s company.
They day went off without a hitch, thanks to Melanie and all the other awesome vendors. The real star was the way Arieana and Mani, although casual and calm, were so excited and deeply in love. As soon as they got together both were all smiles. Mani had been looking up photography to make sure he knew what to do and he nailed it. He looked like he should be in GQ. Arieana’s beautiful blue eyes glowed all among the colors of the leaves. Together, they brought a warmth to the room. Just looking at them you couldn’t help but smile and see a love that runs deep through their blood. I was so honored to photograph their wedding!
Cheers Mr. & Mrs. Hashemi!
Thanks to all the awesome vendors!
