Brigette and Simon, Classic Beauty

Brigette and I met when she was going to school to learn to be a court reporter.  She was learning to use that crazy machine that helps with getting every jot and tittle down perfectly for the remainder of time in the court system.  One look at Brigette and she did not fit the stereotypical stenographer.  I always imagined an older woman with thick glasses and saggy hose with brown orthopedic shoes.  NOT Brigette.  She is a full-blown a-typical reporter and a full-blown Hottie!!!  Phew, thanks Brigette for shattering my stereotypes!  Enter Simon, tall and lean and easy going!  These characteristics are always so nice to have on-hand when spending the rest of your life with someone.  I find Simon a perfect fit for dear Brigette!  They are an amazing couple to spend time with.  They love each other fiercely and are just a good time!

Their beautiful wedding took place on the great plains of far eastern Colorado in Brigette’s tiny town of Burlington.  Burlington is your last stop before you reach Kansas.  It was a perfect day with not a cloud in the sky.  They opted for a traditional beautiful Catholic wedding and had an amazing reception in a beautifully decorated barn nearby.  This place was made for parties with two floors of amazingness.

Katie and Burton’s wedding was nothing but shine and beauty right down to the very last detail!  It was such an honor and a joy to photograph these guys on their day!  My heart was happy and my camera was as well!  Update, Burton today has one of the GREATEST BEARDS I HAVE EVER SEEN!!!!

Aaron and Jennifer, Tying the knot, Part 1

I have known these guys for a few years now and have loved the association.  They are the couple that you know will last forever.  They are deeply devoted to each other and also the most loyal and amazing friends.  I think it’s safe to say that anyone and everyone who meets them instantly wants to be friends with them, FOREVER!  These guys know how to have fun.  They also are so down to earth and about the most easy people to be around!  Their wedding in Las Vegas was one for the record books.  Everything about this wedding was perfect from start to finish.  I have found my new favorite place to stay in Vegas, The Cosmopolitan!
