Lionsgate Event Center

Imagine a secret garden with eclectic beautiful pieces and natural paths with trailing vines on trellis…this is what I photographed for Meghan and Adrian’s stunning wedding day.   Such a gorgeous venue!  I loved the reception hall with the big tall stain glass windows and the market lighting that they strung up for the dance floor.  Candles and beautiful floral centerpieces with hand painted gift boxes from Adrian and Meghan on each table made for the sweetest personal touches.    And the CAKE OMG the cake lol.  I have never seen such an intricate and stunning cake like this one.  Sugar flowers that looked real.  Ahhh, absolutely exquisite.

These details, simply a stunning backdrop to a couple that makes everyone smile as they enter a room.   You can’t help but smile back at these two.  The fact that they met each other at a bus stop…it gets me every time to see the way these two were meant for each other right from the beginning.  Stories like that are not just in the movies it would seem.  I loved that I could see how much they meant to each other all through out the day.  I can not wait to share a few of my favorites from their Lionsgate Wedding.  At the end of this post will be all the lovely talented vendors that helped make this wedding day possible.  If you’d like to see more images head on over to my facebook page

Deer Creek Valley Ranch Wedding

This wedding simply put was amazing.   I was blown away by Blakelee and Angie’s happiness.  I mean, yes, you are happy on your wedding day.  But the way they so easily expressed it with their friends, family…for photos…it was just breath taking to me.  In part of the toasts Angie’s Dad mentioned that they were always laughing and it definitely rang true on their wedding day.  Going back over their wedding images had me smiling right back at them and reliving their rainy wedding day.   Yes, rain on your wedding day can still bring a huge smile on your couples face.  They simply shrugged their shoulders and said yes, lets capture our day as it happened, rain and all.   I loved that about them.   I also happen to think it made for some amazing  moments.

Have you ever been to the Deer Creek Valley Ranch?  If not you should tour this as one of your options for a wedding.  Its simply stunning.  I love that its so wide spread.  Angie and Blakelee chose to have their ceremony over in the prairie by the covered bridge.  The rain stopped just long enough for them to share their vows.  Views of the mountains and a creek running near by it was amazing.   I think one of my favorite spots at this venue is the row of big tall pine trees and the way the road curves.  One of my favorite groomsmen shots was taken from there and you can see it in the blog.  The barn lit up at night and the guests dancing makes for such a fun venue!    The florals that Prive Events added through out the venue and at the ceremony site were stunning!  And added votive candles and wood accents…just gorgeous!    So many talented vendors helped make this beautiful wedding for Blakelee and Angie!  I will list all of them at the end of this post.  They are people I would all recommend to work with!

To Blakelee and Angie, thank you for being such a beautiful and gracious couple.  It was wonderful being part of your day and sharing in that happinesss.  I simply wish you both the best and I’m truly honored to have been chosen as your photographer!

Cherokee Ranch and Castle Wedding

I know I say this a lot.  But I really want to go back and relive this wedding day.   Jordan and Adam shared their vows at the most amazing venue Cherokee Ranch and Castle.  You drive in and see this amazing Castle with gorgeous mountains behind it.  Its just breathtaking.  The details to this wedding were absolutely exquisite…but that is not why I want to relive this day. All though, I’m known for being a detail wedding photographer…its simply that  I adore Jordan and Adam as a couple…and I loved how transparent they were with each other.  That her happiness simply shined on everyone she spoke with.  That Adam would smile and ask to stop portraits so he could grab a quick photo of his bride at sunset.   I think that might be one of my favorite moments actually ever in a wedding lol.  I thought it was so special.   Another favorite moment was a dance off that Jordan and Adam had to Usher.  They were singing, dancing…and yes, they seriously have dance moves…but their smiles were just so contagious.     This day was about making memories and celebrating this couple.  And I love that that detail was remembered all through out the day.    I love that having gorgeous floral work, amazing food, the most delicious cake, a stunning bridal party, and a beautiful ceremony…that the most important detail of enjoying their day was not lost on this couple.  It was a spectacular wedding and I simply can not wait to share more of their wedding.

    Alicia - Cherokee ranch is such a gorgeous wedding venue! I actually thought at first that this was a styled shoot because the images were so beautiful!ReplyCancel

This wedding felt like I stepped into a real fairy tale.  Florals dripping from chandeliers, a gorgeous vintage Rolls Royce to send the couple off in at each location,  not to mention the absolutely breathtaking Cathedral Basillica of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Denver.   This cathedral is awe inspiring.  You look up and see all the intricate detailing in the architecture, big vaulted ceilings set next to high stain glass windows, with everything in a beautiful white tone…it felt like we stepped into another time as its not often you see such design in today’s churches.   After they shared their vows, we met up with Erica and Geoff at the Sanctuary Golf Course where their reception would continue with their guests for the evening.   Champagne was waiting in the groomsmen suite as well as the bridal suite.  I loved that their bridal party cheered and toasted this couple all night long.  It was obvious how close these friends and family were to the couple.  And how easily they could put a smile on Erica and Geoff’s face.   One of my favorite things about the Sanctuary Golf Course are the beautiful views just off the back where the guests can walk with their loved ones and see the sunset.  They have a gorgeous waterfall that you can hear and is set up with the views of the mountain just behind it.  Such a lovely venue and I love that I was able to photograph Erica and Geoff’s wedding here!

One of my favorite memories from the day was during the portraits.   I was mentioning to Erica just how stunning she was, and Geoff of course was saying yes, she absolutely is gorgeous. And she laughed and I could tell just how adored she was by him.   I loved that the two of them constantly encouraged and laughed with each other through out the whole day.  Their dancing later on the night was simply hard not to smile at as it was obvious just how much they enjoyed being with each other.  And they both have serious dance moves!  What a beautiful couple and I could not be more excited to share a few of my favorites from their wedding day.

    Lindsay - These are GORGEOUS! I love how crisp, clean and beautiful these photos are. And the one of the bride looking out the window, I had to do a double-take. She totally looks like a young Julia Roberts 🙂 I loved reading more about the day and how they both made each other laugh so much. That is a sign of a great wedding. Beautiful work!ReplyCancel

    Haley Allen - WHoa! These Sanctuary Golf Course photos are so pretty Elizabeth!!! I’ve never had much time when I was there – looks like you found some amazing spots. I also love the lace overlay on her dress for the ceremony – haven’t seen anything like that!ReplyCancel

Rocky Mountain National Park

I have never been to Rocky Mountain National Park.  Shocking I know.  Amy and Nate asked if we could shoot here…and I said YES please haha.  Its so gorgeous.  We drove in together and would literally pull over when I saw something or they did.  All though the hard part was not getting out of the car every 5 seconds.  There were gorgeous views everywhere.   I think one of my favorite spots was over at the Bear Lake.   I love the lake surrounded by the forest and mountains.  Just so beautiful and serene.   I think if you do choose to go here you should def. not go on the weekend as we went on a weekday and it was still pretty busy.

I loved getting to know Amy and Nate as we were driving around.  Its often hard to get a feel for someone over the phone but this couple had me laughing and I loved the way they interacted with each other.  I think I attract a certain kind of client and I love that as my business continues to grow I’m finding more clients like Amy and Nate.  So laid back and fun!
