When I first met Karra and she told me she was a wedding planner and had just started her own wedding planning company, Cheers Events, I knew her wedding at the Highlands Ranch Mansion was going to be off the hook!  And not only was it full of lots of gorgeous and unique details but of course it was well planned and organized, which always helps make my job just a little smoother and easier.

We were all a little nervous as we arrived at the mansion because dark storm clouds were on the horizon threatening to put a big damper on the outdoor ceremony.  But thankfully the storm steered away and we lucked out with perfect summer weather.  And thank goodness we did, because the elaborate flower arrangements and decorations set up for the ceremony would not have fared well in a storm.   Check out the pictures of her gorgeous ceremony and many other memorable moments from their wedding day below.

For their reception Karra & Tyler had custom glow sticks made!  That was definitely a unique wedding detail I had never seen before.   Each extra large glow stick had their name and wedding date on it, and the guests loved dancing with them!

I always love photographing weddings at the Highlands Ranch Mansion.  The historic vintage mansion has so many gorgeous areas for pictures, and the staff there is always a pleasure to work with.  And of course it also helps to have such a laid back and beautiful couple to work with.  I knew from photographing their engagement session last fall that this couple would be open to creative ideas and fun to work with.  And  sure enough, surrounded by all their family and friends on their wedding day, they certainly knew how to let loose and enjoy themselves.  I have a lot of hilarious bloopers from this wedding too, but I’ll keep those private for them.  Thanks again Karra & Tyler for having me be a part of your wedding day celebrations!
