Vintage Glam

Notes from the bride, Stephanie: 

Brian and I met in college, and were lucky enough to be friends for three years before we began dating. Of course we had been in love with each other that entire time, but neither one of us knew. It is so great to be able to say that I really did marry my best friend. We compliment each other and make a great team, like Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. From the moment I first laid eyes on Villa Parker, I knew it was the perfect place to host our timeless, vintage glam reception, and the chapel at Cherry Hills Community Church had my jaw on the floor once I saw the stained glass. Brian and I sought to add personal touches into the details of the wedding including a baseball table and seating chart theme, and a gluten free cereal treat cake which I made myself the day before the wedding! Guest experience at the reception was also important so with the help of my parents, we made a Tic-Tac-Toe board, Corn Hole, and Giant Jenga as well as having crayons and activity sheets for the kids’ place settings. It was the perfect day, our guests had fun and I married the love of my life!

New Year’s Day Wedding at The Four Seasons Denver

Notes from the photographer, Ryan Erickson of Elevate Photography

What a perfect way to start a new year than with the lovely Danielle and Kyle. McCory and I joined them at Four Seasons on New Year’s Day and couldn’t have been met with a more bright and purely sweet group of their friends and family.Temperatures dropped to the low 30s that day yet even the bridesmaids with bare shoulders didn’t complain once of the cold in the cooler shadows of the Denver skyline.One of my favorite parts about photographing in the winter is how low the sun stays in the sky. Rays of light that ice never seen before transform the familiar surroundings of the DCPA. After touring the streets and stopping off at the Corner Office for some warming beverages we corralled back at Four Seasons where Kyle would make Dani his bride.I loved the space that they created with market lights draped behind their pergola at their ceremony. It was in the moment of witnessing them declare their love for each other among their friends and family that I reaffirmed my gratefulness for being a part of so many special moments.I wondered how happening their recreation was going to be after having celebrated on New Year’s Eve the night before. Let’s just say their families know how to have a proper good party!
