Katherine and Hunter live in the Denver area, but Katherine lived in Durango for a decade or so and loves the area. She hired my husband and I, who are Durango Photographers, to capture the special memories on their wedding day, which was held at Silverpick Lodge.
They met while both lived in an apartment complex in Denver. Hunter lived in the apartment below Katherine (I picture her dancing above him). He proposed in August of 2017 and they’ve been together for 3.5 yrs. They were walking their dog in the park across the street from where they lived, and he proposed to her then and there.
They had just had a baby girl around 4 months before the wedding. The cute little thing’s name is Alma Moon. How awesome is that? Here she is with her flower head piece. Katherine is a proud mama.
The wedding ceremony got held up for a while because everything was set up outside, but it started to rain. Of course, in Colorado, the weather changes every half hour, so sure enough it stopped (or at least slowed to a drizzle) after about 45 minutes. So, the ceremony went on as planned and nobody got overly wet.
These are photos of the bride and groom both laughing at jokes made by the officiant, who is a friend of theirs.
After the ceremony, we headed up a trail on top of a hill where the views are spectacular. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes were out in full force so we all had to use mosquito repellent to keep from getting eaten alive. The bride, groom, wedding party, and family were all great even though the mosquitoes didn’t always obey the rules.
After the whole wedding party, the groomsmen got into a little fun by holding up the groom.
The bride and her ladies had a little fun by talking and laughing among themselves.
After the wedding party went back to the reception area (they were so happy to get away from the mosquitoes), we photographed Katherine and Hunter by themselves.
