Brandon & Stephanie

One of my favorite weddings ever! What a wonderful, wonderful couple and I am so happy for them! Stephanie and Brandon met at work and started dating, which was a no-no according to company policy. They weren't going to let that little rule stand in the way of true love, though. Now they work at separate places, ha! The wedding took place on July 12th at the Denver Botanic Gardens, one of my favorite places in the entire world, and the reception was at the JW Marriott in Cherry Creek. Every moment of the day was simply bursting with joy. I really had fun recording all that, even though it was scorching hot out! These two are adorable and they deserve every happiness. Big hugs and congrats to you, Steph and Brandon!

Wedding ceremony venue: The Denver Botanic Gardens

Practicing her vows in Mom's kitchen before heading to the ceremony.

Stephanie vowed to Brandon that she would love Snickers (their cat) and John Elway as much as he does.

The Japanese Garden in the Denver Botanic Gardens is, to me, a little slice of heaven. I love to go there and just sit. What a wonderful place for a portrait.

I caught this quiet little moment of them in the lounge just before they jumped into the reception.

Brandon's aunt danced the flamenco for us while her husband played Spanish guitar. They were really good! The crowd was enthralled.

Just after cutting the cake. How's this for passion?!?

At twilight I coaxed Steph and Brandon outside for just a few more romantic shots.

Last shot of the night.
