Wally and Janie are both commercial pilots and don't live here. I'm glad they chose Colorado Springs as the destination for their intimate summer wedding. Only their very nearest and dearest made the trip to witness their vows, for a grand total of 10 people including the bride and groom! I love that. The beautiful Summit House Bed and Breakfast hosted the event in their charming, hidden garden. It was lovely, romantic and very sweet, and I feel honored to have been a small part of it. Congratulations, love birds!

Janie was stunning in her simple J. Crew gown.

This is what you call a gorgeous couple!
I was taking a few portraits of Wally, and turned around to find Janie watching with a blissful expression on her face.
The Summit House is the former home of prominent Colorado Springs family the Olsons -- if you're local you'll know them by Olson's Plumbing and Heating. It was built around 1918, and it's gorgeous.
