I love garden weddings and Stacey and Chris’ wedding at Hudson Gardens last week was an especially beautiful one! Trevor and I started the day at their house in Highlands Ranch. I always enjoy photographing at people’s homes because of the personality that a home brings along with all their design and decor. My favorite find was Stacey’s teddybear on the bed that has been especially loved by their two black lab puppies!
We met up with Chris and his daughters, Natlie and Olivia who were his groomsladies(love it!). It was fun roaming the gardens with them and Chris’ Dad. We soon joined Stacey and her ladies at the Rose Garden. I loved how much laughter filled the afternoon and made it so easy to get great candids of them and their friends.
Their ceremony was at Monet’s Place. It has a grand weeping willow that graces the guests and is next to a reflecting pond. So pretty! One of their friends played guitar for them and added to the personal touch of the day. Even their band was family! Stacey’s own cousin flew all the way out from California to rock out with them! They definitely knew how to throw a party!
Stacey and Chris are in Tahiti right now and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that when they see their blog from paradise that it reminds them how sweet life there life is! –Ryan
