I don’t even know where to begin with this amazing couple. The entire planning process with them was great and the wedding day went so smoothly. We were always ahead of schedule and everyone had a great time! Justin & Allie truly enjoyed every moment of their day (even when it was pouring rain briefly before the ceremony) and weren’t stressed at all. They had an incredible group of vendors. It was so great seeing so many familiar faces and she found all of us online (and some referrals). Justin and Allie wanted to do a first look. Justin’s reaction was one of the best we’ve seen! He bent over with his hands on his knees in shock and couldn’t hold back the tears…neither could I. We got to explore the property and take some amazing photos with some killer views. The rain came before we were supposed to do bridal party so everyone got to hangout in the tent and Allie could see her reception vision come to life. Typical Colorado, the sun came out right after the rain. Their ceremony was intimate and so sweet with lots of tears, personal vows and so much love. The reception area had photos of the two of them on every table, yummy cupcakes and dim lighting hanging from the tent. I love weddings like these!

Stunning invitation suite!

Larisa and all the girls were in one house and everyone got their hair and makeup professionally done. 

Murphy wore his Marine’s uniform and a few of his other groomsmen wore their uniforms as well. My Mom went and got the boys getting ready while I stayed with the girls.

They wanted to wait until the ceremony to see each other. Once the girls got dressed a private trolley came and picked up each of the bridal parties to take them to the church! 

Love the photos my Mom got with the veil she made for Larisa. This was moments before she was about to walk down the aisle. 

MARRIED!!!!! 

After the ceremony the newlyweds (and all the guests) walked across the street to the park where they had a Del’s Lemonade Stand for everyone. Which is famous in the area and the perfect refreshment in the humidity and heat! Larisa arranged more buses to take all the guests on a scenic ride of the area on the way to the reception venue. The first stop was Brenton Point right by the water where we got these fun photos.

Then we were off to the venue to finish up bridal party and tons of the two of them. 

Murphy changed into a suit for the rest of the evening and felt much better. 

Here’s where the jaw dropping part happens!!!!! 

There were lots of formal dances and great toasts! Everyone was so happy for these two and it was amazing getting to learn more about them! 

Right before the cake cutting Larisa surprised Murphy with a bulldog puppy he’s been wanting so badly! This one photographed is their actual puppy they picked up the weekend after their wedding! 

They cut the cake with one of the swords!! 

My first ever HORA!!! I’ve never laughed so hard. This was awesome – Murphy is so animated.

Congratulations to an amazing couple! I am so honored I could fly out and capture such an amazing day! 

How in the world is this little cutie 1 already?! It feels like it was yesterday we were doing his newborn portraits with the same mohawk! Jace is so ADORABLE and smiled so much during his session. We went to the same location that we did their maternity portraits in – check it out here. We played in the grass, his chair and of course we did a cake smash at the end and he loved it!

How amazing would it be to experience pregnancy at the same time with your sister?! These two beautiful ladies are due within about a month of each other. Caley on right right is farther along and Carly on the left is making twins!! I love all the fun props they brought along and a lot of them were handmade by their Aunt. Everyone is so excited and I can’t wait for the newborn sessions!
