Colorado wedding photography: Noelle + Bob

[ wedding photographers in Colorado ]

Bob, Noelle and their families came all the way from Illinois to celebrate their union. This means I didn't even get to officially meet them until a couple of days before the wedding, although we had many phone conversations in the run up to their big day. They turned out to be just as lovely in person as they were over the phone. They are the embodiment of midwestern friendliness! Noelle has two sons from a previous marriage, and it was very touching to witness how much Bob cares for those boys, and how much they love him back. It was wonderful to be a part of such a special day. I'm so lucky to be the one who got to document all that love.

Ceremony and reception venue: The Briarhurst Manor
Flowers: Dawn's Creations
Cake: Creative Cakes
Bride's gown: Galina Signature
Bride's shoes: Jimmy Choo
Hair: Brandi Trapp at Genesis Salon
Makeup: Pamela Johnson at Face/Body FX
Tuxedos: Al's Formalwear
DJ services: Jeff at
Springs Sounds

Noelle's ring (above, atop the perfume bottle) was spectacular! I guess Bob REALLY wanted her to say yes ;o)

Bob, captured by my assistant Allison, watches as Noelle is escorted up the aisle by her sons.

In addition to his vow to Noelle, Bob also made a heartfelt vow to his new stepsons as they were presented with pendants. There wasn't a dry eye in the place.

There were a lot of adorable kids at this wedding. After dinner they all blew off steam with an impromptu game of tag.
