I really love very few things in this world more than photographing a wedding day full of love, happiness, an awesome bridal party, beautiful details and perfect light. Mary and Levi had exactly that kind of day and it was nothing but a pleasure to be a part of! Oh, and they served macaroni and cheese at their reception, which is basically HEAVEN after working 10 hours before getting to eat! :) But food aside, I feel so honored to have gotten to be a part of their wedding, to have had the chance to get to know both of their wonderful families and friends and to have been able to whitness the start of their lives together! Mary and Levi – I hope you are enjoying honeymooning and being newlyweds and I am so excited to share these photos with you!!
Loved the bling!
These are Mary’s sisters. Both of whom are the sweetest, funniest girls!
As the girls finished up hair and makeup, the boy were getting dressed!

Then it was DRESS TIME!
And gift time :)
And jewelry time!
Mary had so many amazing girls stand up with her on her wedding day and you could just tell how happy they all were for her that day!

4 of the cutest kids in Denver were on hand to be ring bearers and flower girls!
then it was time to GET MARRIED!
Look at that veil!! Stunning.
Making it official!
One last prayer and blessing…
And sealed with a kiss…
And these two are MARRIED YAYYY!
Mary and Levi have so many good friends and family that they had a pretty big wedding party, but these guys and girls were SO easy to photograph and so fun to be around it was a piece of cake!
Love this. Always do!
Look at those handsome guys.
Killin’ a “bridesmaids” pose!
A cool usher and all the guys. Love this!
We did a lot of combinations of photos but here are a few siblings shots:
Mary and her two sisters by blood, and two sisters-in-law!
Some gorgeous details (like the “G” painted on Mary’s ring finger for her new last name!)
Brides and bouquets … what could be more fun to photograph?!
These two clean up NICE!
LOVE that shot on the left
Another couple shots that I love love love!
I really love to make newlyweds kiss for the camera and they never seem to mind ;)
Love both of these!
One last shot from portraits!
Then it was off to the boat house at Wash Park to celebrate!!
So many insanely gorgeous details at their reception that I could hardly narrow it down!
Mr and Mrs!!!
Love these! Especially that one of the three siblings on the left – too sweet!
I had to include these two pictures. Because the day before the wedding it called for rain all day (very very rare for Colorado) and I was beside myself trying to figure out what I was going to do about pictures. Luckily the sky stayed mostly sunny all morning and only started to darken as we were arriving at the reception. About 10 minutes later… it was POURING!! It lasted about 10 minutes and was dry the rest of the night! Perfect, perfect timing!
Mary’s maid of honor and Levi’s best man gave some wonderful toasts!
Mary’s Dad gave a little toast too.
Then it was time for their first dance as a married couple!
One of Levi’s groomsmen performed their first dance song and not only was he AMAZING, it was so personal and special. I loved it!
Mary and her Dad had a rockin father daughter dance
And invited everyone out to dance with them!
Then it was Levi and his mom’s turn!
Followed by a special toast and a special song…
Sung by Mary’s grandfather (and the entire crowd joined in!)
And then this group PARTIED!
A last blurry ending shot of the happy couple
And this was the view outside the boat house … the most beautiful end to and amazing day!
Thank you Levi and Mary for letting me be a part of your big day!! I loved every minute of it and I wish you both so much happiness! -Katie
