When I first met Amy, she was doing the hair of one of my early brides, Kristy. I remember thinking, “she’s adorable….I wonder if she’s married?” As the years went on, I saw her and her family at various weddings and I always hoped and wondered if I would ever get to photograph her. Jump to a couple years ago….the girl that had been doing my hair was just getting too busy and it was a logical time for me to transition to Amy. She had recently moved to the A list Salon, which was right downtown and only minutes from my doorstep.
And then I learned about Garon. Garon, at the time was an umpire. If you know anything about my family…..we are a baseball family. I have nothing but respect for a guy who willingly goes onto a baseball field to call a fair game regardless of the opinions of over zealous fans. We’re in little league and we have over zealous fans….just imagine a Minors game. Then I discovered he’s from Nebraska….and Nebraska is close enough to Colorado to be considered cool, especially when this Nebraskan is a Broncos fan. So I liked Garon immediately.
I found out about Amy and Garon’s engagement the way most people find out anything nowadays…..on Facebook. So I started saying a little prayer, “Please let Amy choose me to create her wedding collection….please let her choose me.” God was obviously listening.
It’s wonderful to photograph a wedding with people that you consider friends. Between the soft December rain, Amy’s eye to detail, the gorgeous color and texture combinations of her decor, the dresses, the tuxes, the amazing reception lighting and DJ put on by G & G Entertainment, the stunning flowers by Julia’s Floral Designs and the always fabulous cake by Bliss Pastry (seriously, the cinnamon cake….I wanted to take the entire thing home!), it was a perfect event. Please enjoy these images as much as I do and thank you Amy and Garon for allowing me to be a part of such a remarkable evening!
