I went out with a bang for the 2017 wedding season with Courtney and Elden. Their wedding was at Cielo at Castle Pines last week. They live on the east coast and it was fun to see them wandering the woods of Colorado! Courtney wanted to make the first look with Elden unique. So, we made their wedding party part of the experience! Her bridesmaid hadn’t seen here until the moment where they and the groomsmen were lined up as a wall separating Elden and Courtney. They parted ways as she walked closer to get her man. It was a sweet moment for everyone to witness!
We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering the woods then heading to Daniel’s Park to watch the sunset. It was starting to get chilly so Courtney warmed up with her shawl while her and Elden were perched atop the rocks looking out over the foothills. We wrapped up just in time to head back to Cielo to make it official in front of friends and family. Their ceremony was in the round and I loved how it made all the guests truly feel a part of the ceremony. This was a first for me and I loved all the perspectives that it allowed.
Janae and I had a blast when the party started as they made their entrance down the grand staircase with guests twirling glow sticks. I was most impressed when her Mom and Dad came jumping down the aisle . The dance party stayed strong and we had a quick moment to steal away outside for a romantic moment by the fire. How classic and beautiful do they look?! Thanks you two for trusting me with capturing this exciting time in your life! –Ryan
