Heather and Robert live in Durango CO and hired Ken and I, who are photographers in Durango CO, to capture their wedding and reception. The wedding was held in an open area in the mountains with gorgeous fall colors as a backdrop.
You’ll notice that their officiant is dressed as Father Guido Sarducci from Saturday Night Live. His “service” was hysterical. Couples getting married in Colorado don’t really need an officiant, so anybody can provide this service. Couples can also marry themselves – just read their vows to each other and sign the marriage license.
A little peeping through the fall leaves at the wedding ceremony.
Robert proposed to Heather on 3.30.19 on the 18th hole at the Hidden Valley Golf Course. They both love golfing, so that was perfect for the proposal.
We got all of their family and friends together at the ceremony site for a portrait with the yellow aspen leaves in the background.
Before the wedding ceremony, we did some photos of Heather and Robert. I told him to whisper something sexy into her ear so she would laugh. They wouldn’t tell me what he said – haha.
Then I told them to walk towards me, and she got a little crazy. I think she was getting ready to sing The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music.
Do you like the way they’re showing off their rings?
They look pretty cool with their sunglasses, right?
After leaving the wedding ceremony site, we stopped on the way back into Durango by a pond with a lovely background.
Once we arrived in Durango, they danced in the street.
They wanted a photo with the statue of horses in front of the Durango Train Station.
We then went to a local park with a gazebo and placed them on the steps to show off her ring.
They had the reception at their home. We captured their first dance and then they changed into street clothes to have fun with their friends and family.
Let me know if you need a photographer for a wedding, family portrait, high school senior portrait, or boudoir.
