Fine Arts Center wedding: JJ & Jennifer

[ wedding photographers Colorado Springs ]

On November 11th, Veterans Day, I donated my services to a good cause called Weddings for Warriors. It's a way for our servicemen and women to celebrate the wedding of their dreams for free! There were 14 Weddings for Warriors in Colorado Springs that day. I was very honored to be a participant.

My clients, Jennifer and JJ, have actually been married for a decade (although they look so young!), so they renewed their vows instead. It was very touching, especially JJ's vows. All professional services were donated, as well as Jennifer's gown. The Fine Arts Center generously offered their beautiful new wing; Gentry's Flowers provided the bouquet, and Carolyn Dekok of Classic Designs lent her excellent event planning skills. It was a beautiful event!

Overall event coordination: Marty Gagg at the Garden of the Gods Trading Post
Jennifer & JJ's individual event planner: Carolyn Dekok of Classic Designs
All gowns were generously donated by Alfred Angelo
Jennifer's hair and makeup: Veda Salon
Floral design: Gentry's Flowers
Ceremony venue: The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

Their daughters, J and E, served as flower girls.

JJ has had four tours in Iraq and will soon be headed to Afghanistan.

Little girls looooooove to twirl!

What a sweet little family :o)

I told him to stick his tongue in her ear. Love her reaction!
