This one’s going to be hard to beat ya’ll! Ever since I weathered the blizzard conditions of Kristen and Karla’s engagement session last Winter in Empire, I knew that their wedding was going to be epic. Well, just see for yourself!
Kristen got ready at The Maven Hotel which is the hottest new boutique hotel in Denver as far as I’m concerned. It was a photographer’s dream to photograph her dress and shoes and jewelry in their art-filled lobby. And how about their bar where Kristen looks so glam?! After Karla finished getting ready in the Highlands, they caravaned over to Infinite Monkey Theorem to have a peek at each other for the first time! This was my first time doing a first look in a barrel room. The air was thick with wine and oak as Kristen and Karla turned towards each other to take it all in.
After enjoying some wine with their closest friends and family, their tribe headed out in RiNo to explore some of my favorites murals. Artists recently updated new murals that I had yet to photograph so I was so pumped! Our feet were growing tired as we headed back to blanc where we settled in before Kristen and Karla made it official. I loved how the included their loved ones who had passed by joining in a toast with everyone. So sweet!
They partied down inside blanc the rest of the night and finished with sparklers under the market lights and night sky. How perfect?!
Thank you Kristen and Karla for giving us such a beautiful wedding to photograph! Can’t wait to watch your love grow. –Ryan
