Diana & Matt held their wedding ceremony last weekend at Hudson Gardens in Littleton, CO. I have photographed a few weddings before at Hudson Gardens but this was my first one in Monet’s Place, so I was pretty excited about that. Monet’s Place is a ceremony area all the way to the end of the gardens that is secluded, shady, and romantic…and I personally much preferred it to some other parts of the garden I’ve photographed in which are more open, sunny, and not nearly as private. Around Monet’s Place there is even a small secret island (Pictured to the right) that you have to know a back way around to get to. Diana & Matt’s wedding was beautiful, and her brother’s sermon was was of the most meaningful & entertaining I’ve heard in a long time. After the ceremony the bride & groom jumped in a town car for a drive over to there reception, but before they were whisked away I had them do their “teapot” pose, which they told me about during their engagement session and I was so glad I did because during the toast the whole story of the “teapot pose” came out & it was simply hilarious! ( inside joke for those who don’t know). The reception was held at the Sons of Italy, which was a charmingly elegant hall and a perfect fit for Matt’s Italian family. It was also another new place for me and if you can’t tell I love shooting at places I haven’t photographed before! Their wedding reception had me laughing all night, like when Matt took out a head lamp to retrieve the garter from under Diana’s dress (shot of this in slideshow), or when the father showed off his killer dance moves, and put use to that head light (pictures of that to come)! I had a great time at Diana & Matt’s wedding and was so glad they found me & I got to be a part of it. Enjoy their picture preview.
