It was a cool fall day during Hannah & Matt’s wedding at Wedgewood in Boulder Creek. Snow patches scattered the property with a little green grass still showing around the ceremony site. Their ceremony arch was decorated with a drape of blush pink fabric and a bouquet of greenery with pink and cream colored flowers in the center.
I started the day by meeting up with them at a hotel nearby in Broomfield to photograph some images of them getting ready. Its so funny to see the different dynamics between the girls getting ready and the guys getting ready. The girls were very lively, doing hair and makeup. The room was adorned with colorful paper decorations and bouquets of flowers that the ladies had made themselves. The guys on the other hand were just hanging out playing video games, a much quieter group just relaxing before they headed over to the venue to put on their suits.
They didn’t want to see each other before the wedding but they wanted to do a photo of them with their eyes closed holding hands in a doorway or something similar. So we looked around and found a place to photograph this image next to a stone column in the reception area. I took out Matt first, positioned him and had him close his eyes, then Hannah came out with her eyes closed too. They were so adorable! They held hands and spoke to each other softly as they kept their eyes closed. They were both so full of emotion, excitement, nervousness, anticipation. It was very cool to be part of that moment.
Hannah & Matt, you two were so sweet and welcoming! Thank you for entrusting me to photograph this day for you. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing the whole day: the girls getting ready and your gift to Hannah with the pink pearls, Matt’s face as he saw you walk down the aisle, your wonderful crew of a wedding party, romantic images of the two of you, toasts and first dances, and some of older family members rocking it on the dance floor. I wish you two much happiness and new adventures as you continue on into this new chapter in your lives!
