10-20-10 Wedding at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO
I first met Janis in the security line at the Denver airport almost a year ago. To kill time we chatted in line and who would have known I would end up photographing her wedding! I have to admit I was pretty surprised when she called me and asked me to photograph her wedding. I didn’t think she remembered me or would have kept my card for so long. But it all worked out and I will never complain about long lines at the airport again. =)
Janis & Thom held an intimate wedding ceremony at Red Rocks Park in Morrison, Colorado last week. The morning started off chilly, but it quickly warmed up and I don’t think we could have asked for better weather. Janis & Thom didn’t want to waste any time tying the knot, and soon after the official engagement they started planning a simple elopement to soon follow. It didn’t quite end up being an elopement, as their family flew in on short notice to share this special moment with them, but that just made the day that much more special for them. With limited time to plan I was more then happy to recommend Reverend Lucinda who I knew would not only be delighted to help put together such a special and unique ceremony, but would be able to do her flowers as well through her second wedding business, Tussie Mussie Floral. She even risked almost getting into trouble with the police for picking wildflowers off the side of the road (as Janis had specifically requested), talk about service! Their beautiful barefoot wedding included the singing of “Butterfly Kisses,” hand written vows, and heartwarming prayers & toasts from the family. I was also glad that one of my favorite videographers, Kevin with Stalls Video, was also available last minute to capture this once in a lifetime moment to be remembered forever and shared with all of their family & friends whom were not present.
Following the toast & lots of family pictures at Red Rocks everyone went to Beso de Arte, a Latin Bistro, for lunch. This restaurant is absolutely beautiful and a perfect place for a memorable lunch, located right outside of Red Rocks park in downtown Morrison. Before I left I had to capture a shot of Janis & Thom kissing behind the waterfall, just for fun! It’s kind of hard to tell, but if you look at the last picture in the slideshow you can just barely make out the beautiful newlyweds making out through the water. Thanks Janis & Thom for having me share this special day with you! Click play on the slideshow below to view some of my favorite pictures from their wedding day.
