Wedding at the Cliff House: Katie + Chad

[ Cliff House wedding pictures ]

From Seattle by way of Chicago, Katie, Chad and all their loved ones traveled from far and wide to congregate in Manitou Springs for this very special event. Despite the scorching Fourth of July weekend weather, it was a fabulous time! Chad and Kate's ceremony was incredibly personal and sweet (officiated by their good friend Jerusha), and the party was bumpin' all night long. Katie is truly one of the most camera shy brides I've ever had -- she was a real trooper putting up with me! Thank you Katie, I hope these pictures made it worth the agony! :o)

Wedding ceremony and reception venue: The Cliff House
Event planning: Nada Gutierrez at RSVP Weddings
Decor and floral design: Nada Gutierrez at RSVP Weddings
Bride's hair and makeup: Niki at the Beehive Salon
Deejay services: AJ at Celebrity DJ
Wedding cake: The Cliff House

Chad and Katie made sure to schedule time after their ceremony for fun wedding portraits around Manitou Springs, especially the old-fashioned arcade.

These two are so sweet together.

I think the tourists and the Manitou arcade regulars had fun watching Chad and Katie strolling around and posing for their portraits. It was fun for us too!

Katie's niece Hallie performed a song for them during dinner. Adorable!

Reacting to best man Nitin's hilarious toast. He had us all in stitches.

Can you guess what Journey song they're jamming to?
