My husband and I are photographers in Durango CO and our specialty is photographing weddings.
My last post was about Monica and Roger’s Engagement Session which was photographed by Durango CO Photographers – that would be Ken and I. You can read about it here if you missed that blog post.
Monica and Roger’s wedding was held at Sky Ute Casino. The ceremony was supposed to be outdoors, but due to rain the night before, they moved it into the ballroom. The chairs were sinking into the grass. Oh my!
After the ceremony, we went outside to do portraits of their families and the wedding party. This photo is just their immediate family. Lots of love here.
Here’s a few photographs of the Bride and Groom by themselves. Monica got her dress from Occasions Bridal Shop in Durango CO.
After all of the family, wedding party, and couple’s photos, we all headed into the reception area at Sky Ute Casino. There were around 300 guests, so it was huge! There were two bands so that the dancing and partying could carry on late into the night. Yes, there was smoke.
There was lots of great food, and a beautiful cake made by Sweet and Sassy Treats located in Ignacio CO which is close to Durango.
This is the Bride and Groom’s First Dance, with one showing the cake in the foreground just for a little artistic affect – haha.
Here’s some more dancing, including the La Marcha Dance. If you’ve never experienced this dance, it’s done at most Hispanic weddings. A matriarch couple leads the bride and groom in a line dance that snakes around the reception area, then everybody makes an arch where the couples go thru and end up in another line. At the end everybody makes a big circle where the bride and groom dance by themselves.
Thank you for reading this post.
Long Live Love!
