K + M's wedding at the Craftwood Inn

[ Colorado Springs photographers ]

I love to photograph a couple who are so obviously, madly in love. I also love a new wedding experience, which I got to have this time since Marian is Polish (his name is pronounced MAR-yon, roughly). He has a huge family, most of whom flew in from all over the U.S. and from Poland. I learned how to say "smile" in Polish (don't ask me to spell it here!), and I heard a lot of cool Polish disco music during the reception. It was great! Kelly and Marian, thanks for choosing me to document your super-fun day!

Wedding ceremony location: The Heritage Garden at Monument Valley Park
Wedding reception location: The Craftwood Inn
Bride's gown: Something New Boutique
Flowers: Ambiance Florals
Bride's hair and makeup: Veda Salon
Cake: The Sugarplum Cake Shoppe
DJ services: Sensational Sounds

I love this shot of Kelly's mom watching the getting ready process. She looks so proud and happy.

The vows. Guys, if you can get a beautiful woman to look at you like this, well... let's just say Marian is a lucky man!

The traditional Catholic ceremony took place in the Heritage Garden at Monument Valley Park.

The kiss was spectacular!

Kelly and Marian gave me enough time to make some cool portraits of the wedding party in downtown Colorado Springs.

I can't resist a bowl of candy for the ring shot.
