We had some nice weather this weekend and shot a few engagement sessions. I was testing out a new camera and I think they turned out nice. Angie was nice enough to be the model. I hope you enjoy
Tom & Jill had a beautiful, traditional wedding at the Shove Chapel in Colorado Springs. After the wedding ceremony they planned for some extra time before their reception for pictures. Of course we love it when a couple loves pictures as much as we do and plans for hours of them around such a beautiful place as Glen Eyrie Castle. This beautiful stone castle is surrounded by trees, wildlife and tall glass windows…..
Tom & Jill were one of those cute couples who love pictures and almost picked their venues around them. They were married at the historic Shove Chapel down in Colorado Springs….a huge chapel made of stone with colorful glass windows and quite possible the longest aisle I have ever seen. Many couples like to get married here because of the beautiful architecture and the beautiful park which surrounds it. Trees, grass and pathways all around marked with tall lampposts is what you will find outside the Shove Chapel.
Jill had a beautiful wedding gown with hand sewn bead work and carried a bouquet of white and purple roses. She wore a long veil that cascaded down the aisle behind her for several feet, perfect for the long aisle she walked down. Her bridesmaids wore elegant purple dresses and carried a little bouquet of white flowers. Their ceremony was full of happy tears and hugs……
Because Grand Junction is about 4 hours away from us, we consider it a destination wedding and so we spend at least one night there. The day after Boomer and Aimee were married we took them up the road from the winery (Two Rivers Winery) where they held their wedding, to the Mesa. Although this area is very dry and desert like, it is really pretty….a very small Grand Canyon look to it. The Mesa itself has a road that goes through the whole park with amazing views and some wildlife. It was very hot being in the middle of the summer but these two were great sports and we spent a few hours driving around this pretty park.
