I looove me a good wedding, and Steph and Zac’s wedding was the best! It is always fun to photograph a friend’s wedding because you feel even more a part of the big day. Plus, one of my best friends, from all the way back in high school, was the maid of honor and it was just such a fun wedding to photograph! It was a nearly perfect Colorado mountain day filled with happiness, family, friends and love. So so much love. These two were so excited to marry each other and make it official and have a big old party to celebrate! :)
Here’s the gorgeous view from the hotel as everyone got ready … and no one minded those clouds rolling in because they dropped no rain and kept the temperature a few degrees cooler
The hotel provided a wonderful backdrop for all of the bride’s details…
This necklace was Zac grandmothers and he gave it to Steph the night before their wedding…
Lots of champagne to celebrate!
Meanwhile, just down the hall (so close, and yet so far!) the boys got ready, and joked around, and took in the last few moments of single hood for their friend Zac
Getting handsome! :)
Then it was time for the dress!!
First look time!!
It was such a special, emotional moment of the day for these two and I couldn’t narrow down my images!
so much happiness!
And a few happy tears! :)
These two could. not. stop. smiling.
these two have perfected this pose!
And her flowers were stunning!!!! And perfect for her colors and the day!
And Zac was quiet handsome himself!
Probably my favorite shot of the day… and possibly a new favorite wedding shot ever!!!!
time to head to the venue to get hitched!
the girls, the boys, and the sweet little flower girl!
Here comes the bride…
Ready to get married!
Such a pretty secluded little ceremony…
Loveddd the cake and cake topper!!!
The maid of honor and the best man gave perfect speeches that mixed humor and sentimental moments…
And a tearful father daughter dance…
Love this of Steph watching her new husband and his mom dance!
Then the party got started and never. slowed. down!
including a lovely “dance routine” by the bride and the groom to Britney Spears “Hit Me Baby One More Time” … so great!
Congrats times a thousand you two! Enjoy being newlyweds! ::KD::
