I met Stephanie last spring, when she was a student in my Photoshop class. As the semester went on, and life became more and more complicated, I saw her less inside of class and more outside of it. Stephanie is one of those people that manages to smile and stay cheerful regardless what life throws at her. And so we became friends. When she asked me to be her photographer when she marries Skip, I was honored. And nervous… Skip is a graphic designer, and Stephanie is headed in that direction too. So they know what they want to see, and I was definitely going to deliver it one way or another!
Their wedding day was a perfect Colorado autumn afternoon. Sunny, warm and calm. Just like Stephanie when I arrived. The Ellis Ranch is a great wedding venue— backlit gazebo, just the right number of trees so it’s green, but it still looks like Colorado, and the reception area is HUGE barn lit by white string lights. The fall-themed flowers were by Paul Wood in Fort Collins.
Stephanie rode a horse-drawn carriage to the ceremony.
And yes, I’ve already posted this photo as the teaser earlier this week, but Noah the ring bearer is so cute. And the little girls watching him… I love this photo!
After the ceremony, they rode off together in the carriage…
And then came back for the reception.
