When Cate and Scott called me from their home in Brooklyn, NY to ask about wedding photography, I just knew that they were going to be a cool couple to work with. Hiring a photographer without benefit of meeting her in person requires a leap of faith, but we hit it off so well over the phone that we knew right away it was going to be a great fit! I didn't actually get to meet Scott and Cate until the day before their wedding and yet it felt just like old friends. What a nice couple, and what wonderful, interesting families they both have! Their wedding and reception last month was a relaxed affair at the Craftwood Inn in Manitou Springs. The ceremony was unique in that they solemnized it themselves (no officiant, just their siblings standing up for them). Many of their friends and family traveled all the way from the east coast and points beyond, so I'm happy that we had such a sunny Colorado day to celebrate this happy union.
Many warm congratulations Cate and Scott!

As she descended the stairs and rounded the corner, Cate was greeted by her many awestruck admirers!
I absolutely loved Cate's gown. It reminded me of something John Singer Sargent might have painted. Gorgeous!
