It was a warm summer day with the sweet smell of blooming flowers lingering in the air.
Bridesmaids chatted while they helped their bride put on the final touches for her big day. The girls toasted champagne and turned up their music while the boys played a few games of pool and enjoyed each other’s company.
It was the grand opening of a new school in town.
New teachers, new students and new memories to be made. With new faces all around, the teachers formed a group to frequently go out and get to know each other a little better. After a few group outings, Andrea’s bright smile and beautiful brown eyes caught Eric’s attention. He decided to send Andrea a message one evening asking if she would go out with him. She agreed and the two hit it off.
And in the blink of an eye…
It had been 10 years. Over time, their love had grown into something they couldn’t live without. They had no serious plans of becoming Mr. and Mrs., until one day when Chris got down on one knee and asked Michaela to be his wife. Michaela was in absolute shock and couldn’t believe she didn’t see it coming. With an overwhelming sense of excitement, she said yes.
The wedding planning began and the two decided on an intimate ceremony at the base of Medicine Bow Peak, with the beautiful waters of Lake Marie shimmering beside them.

Thunder roared as they stood under the altar. Just moments after her parents put her hand in his, the drops started to fall. The officiant asked if they wanted to move the wedding inside. In response, the bride and groom looked at each other and as they did, big, heavy, raindrops started crashing down. Nodding yes, they took each other’s hand and started to run.
I’ve dedicated a good portion of my life to telling love stories. Couples come to me, I get to know them, and I document their engagement and/or wedding day through photos and words on this here blog. But I’ve never taken the time to share my own love story. The reason I do what I do, why love is so important to me and the impact it’s had on my life… My actual heart and soul.
It was a beautiful summers day in Laramie.
The light shone through the trees in gently shifting patterns and the sound of a fountain echoed through the gardens. Matt waited with his back to the mansion as he heard his bride’s soft footsteps down the walkway behind him. Ashley touched his arm and when he turned to look over his shoulder, he saw her bright smile and couldn’t help but pull her into his arms and embrace his soon to be wife.
The sun was shining brightly and love was in the air…
Their wedding day began with games of foosball, shots of fireball, and happy chatter as the bride and groom prepped with their parties. Eric and Megan both being Denver Natives, they had arranged an elegant garden ceremony steps from their hometown. As the morning quickly passed, Megan placed her final touches on her look, grasped her wildflower bouquet and Eric slipped on his vest. They both were anxiously awaiting their big moment while family and friends gathered outside.
