Being a Colorado wedding photographer, I’ve experienced many different weather conditions on the big day. Caryl and Allen’s wedding at Red Rocks Amphitheater was one of my favorite winter wedding experiences ever! People ask me often if I ever grow tired of photographing at the same locations. The answer has always been no because its the people who make the wedding day and not just the venue. Caryl, Allen and their friends and family are perfect examples of that!
I experienced a first though for Caryl and Allen’s photos. When we arrived to the park for their first look, a snow storm had been brewing all morning. Caryl didn’t mention the cold once as she whisked through the snow to go see her man for the first time. The thick snow made it feel very private and cozy. We felt like we had the whole park to ourselves(and we did)!
Their wedding party soon joined in and happily navigated the snowy grounds around the Trading Post It wasn’t until the reception where I learned how purely fun and hilarious their wedding party is. Allen’s groomsmen gave a speech covering examples of the classic saying, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.” You should have hear the roaring laughter when he brought out a plunger as on offering to the newlyweds and when Allen’s relatives visit!
