The weddings of 2011 just keep amazing me and Neil and Virginia’s took it up a notch. The wedding was held at Virginia’s parents home just outside of Boulder, CO. I loved the personal touches and feel of a country backyard wedding. The weather was perfect and I loved the quality of light on the Front Range in the evening as the God beams shone over the mountains from the setting sun. The ceremony featured a serenade from a local pack of Coyotes in the nearby woods. It was a nice natural touch and something I have never witnessed after the hundreds of weddings I’ve photographed. Another highlight was when the flower exchange was about to start and the flowers were missing. Virginia’s brother, and best man, ran and jumped the fence to pick two giant sunflowers so the ceremony could carry on. The day was very elegant but had a relaxed atmosphere with the cowboy boots and country wedding style. The reception was held in the family’s barn that had been transformed into the perfect reception space. Outside was a fire-pit where guests relaxed in the cool night air roasting marsh mellows and making smores. I really hope the wedding day storybook conveys how beautiful this day was. I had a great time photographing and designing these images into a storybook from Neil and Virginia’s super day!
