There is always something magical about photographing a wedding. I'm not sure if it's the raw, pure love that you see while standing before a crowd or possibly witnessing the joyous family that comes together for the first time in years for a beautiful occasion. All I do know is that photographing a wedding is an experience that is such an honor to document. Now, I must preface that normally I post about 5 or 6 sneak peek photos and for this wedding I just couldn't choose. So without further adieu...
Katy and Steve are two people who I can physically SEE the love exuding from them. They are so kind hearted and, by golly gosh, does that boy love her!!!
They each wrote love letters to each other and both of them had a hard time holding it together while reading it. How sweet right?!
Katy and Steve met in Vegas and after a year of getting to know each other and being friends they decided to start dating. Steve knew Katy was the girl for him after a few dates and Katy fell in love with Steve right before he left for Basic Training. You see, Steve is an active duty military officer and Katy is a financial analyst so while away at basic training their love grew.
Aren't these flower girls just BEAUTIFUL!!!???
Steve had a very hard time holding back tears throughout the entire ceremony and it was just the most endearing ceremony ever.
Their beautiful wedding was held at the Highlands Ranch Mansion and could you ask for a better venue?! I couldn't! Not only was the location a winner, but the staff and management were also wonderful to work it!
A quick side note, a huge thanks for my second shooter Katie Bradshaw of KB Digital Designs. The above photo was taken by her :) Thanks for being an integral part of the day!

This couple made their wedding day exactly what they wanted it to be and it turned out to be stunning!
Katy & Steve specifically wanted a few artsy landscape photos to document their day and the below image I thought captured their personalities :)
On to the reception with a vintage wine theme, cowboy boots to finish off Keith Urban first dance song, and additionally a photobooth for their friends and family to have fun with!
Such a great party you two!!! Congratulations and I hope you enjoy your relaxing 2 week honeymoon!!!
