{love stories} Laura & Aaron | Marriage in the Mile High

January 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
I have to admit I'm embarrassed to be so far behind posting on the blog!  Since Gavin was born our extra "blog" time has slipped - so both of our blogs are lying waiting some much needed updates.  This is a great way to start that catch up process.  Laura & Aaron are friends of a friend I grew up with back in New Mexico.  When she got engaged (to a super talented photographer by the way) we were so excited to get a call to shoot her wedding!  Unfortunately, we were already booked on her date and couldn't work out getting to Gulf Shores to be with her and Drake.  Lucky for us, a few of their closest friends were also recently engaged and they were kind enough to pass us along to Laura & Aaron.  Several month later I was on a plane headed to Denver, and anxious to get to one of the most beautiful weddings of the year... 


The day I got into Denver was beautiful and I took the chance to drive around and make sure I knew how to get from the Church (Rockland Community Church) to the reception at the Tivoli brewery building downtown.  The next morning we all woke up to the first snow of the year in Denver, and while we were all nervous that the outdoor photos, not to mention the travel back and forth to the mountains for the ceremony would be affected the end result was priceless.


We were a bit rushed the morning of, but had scheduled plenty of time after the ceremony for the fun stuff, so the goal right off the bat was just to keep everything on time.  Laura's bridesmaids were awesome such a fun group to hang out with that morning, and when we left the Aveda Institute downtown (about a gallon of hot Tea later) it was off to the Embassy to get dressed and then into the coolest Limo I've ever seen for the trip up the mountain. 


The ceremony was short and sweet, set in a church overlooking a beautiful valley covered in snow and still painted with fall color.  The clouds and fog lifted right before the ceremony filling the church with light and giving us a much needed little boost in temperature for the fun photos that would all take place outside right afterward.


After all the shots were done it was off to the party.  The old theater was decorated perfectly with a vintage inspired decor, great colored uplighting, and a big dance floor where the party would quickly move.  It's always a rush showing up to a new place for a wedding - but with the snow and weather changing (not to mention a slightly grumpy wedding planner) the pressure was high.  Laura and Aaron however were the perfect couple for the day and their families were inviting and excited to be a part of their big day!  Of course as with ALL of our weddings the end result is the same, the I DO's were said, the kiss was great, and the dancing was fun - but this one stands out as a perfectly beautiful, unique couple in a setting that did their day justice.  A HUGE thanks to Laura & Aaron for the honor of inviting me to Denver! {miles}
