Aaron & Kelly's Denver Botanic Gardens wedding

[ Denver wedding photographer ]

Aaron and Kelly have been together for nearly a decade, so their wedding was highly anticipated. They chose the gorgeous Denver Botanic Gardens for their wedding ceremony -- one of my favorite places in the world, as a matter of fact. Their elegant reception took place on the 37th floor of the Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver. What a view!

The thing I like most about Aaron and Kelly is that, even after ten years as a couple, they're still clearly gaga for each other. I think it shows in their pictures :o)

Wedding ceremony site: Denver Botanic Gardens
Ceremony harpist: Mary Keener
Floral design: Brighton Florist
Hair: Danielle Sanchez at Berenices Salon Denver
Makeup: Sondra Lockett at Berenices Salon Denver
Wedding reception site: Grand Hyatt Denver

The florist incorporated Kelly's grandmother's vintage jewelry into the bridal bouquet.

Wonderful capture by my second shooter, Ginger Houser of Blue Sequoia Photography.

The vows.

Waiting out a thunderstorm. Kelly anxiously reviews her vows, while the flower girl Kristen obviously finds all this wedding nonsense to be quite dull.

Tourists admire and congratulate Kelly as she makes her way to the ceremony site.

The best man, Andrew, is one of my grooms from 2006! Excellent ceremony capture by my assistant Allison.

Another great shot by Ginger.

Moments after the ceremony.

I love shooting portraits at the Botanic Gardens!

As I was doing formals of Kelly I asked her to look at her new husband, and this is the expression I captured. Love!
