Evergreen Lake House Wedding | Melissa and Austin | Denver Wedding Photographer

July 11, 2016

This wedding had me worried for minute.  Haha…when we first arrived we were surrounded by POURING down crazy rain.  Jen and I looked at each other and she said no worries…lets make this an umbrella wedding.  🙂   I called Melissa and asked how she felt about portraits with umbrellas.  She laughed and said she was game for anything.  I was mentally going through all the cool portraits that would happen with umbrellas.  It would be unique…it would be epic.  I’m laughing as the weather decided to cooperate and did amazing things that no man made umbrella could ever replicate.  The sun broke through just before the ceremony and created this gorgeous haze.  My mouth fell open…seriously, it was jaw dropping beautiful.  Evergreen Lake house sits in the middle of this beautiful lake surrounded by mountains and it was so breathtaking.

But lets get back to another reason I loved this sweet wedding.  Melissa and Austin.  They are quite possibly, one of the nicest couples I’ve ever photographed.  And that is saying a lot as all of my clients are pretty incredibly kind.   But I loved how caring they were.   They were quick to laugh,  offer help where needed, hug their families, said many words of encouragement (not that Jen and I needed it but they kind of made us feel like rock stars with their compliments 😉 ) or to make sure we had eaten.  Ahhh, its those little details that flowed not only from Melissa and Austin, but from their family and friends as well.   I just felt like I was smiling the whole time I photographed this beautiful wedding.  And looking back through their wedding day photos it brings me back to that sweet feeling.    What an amazing day…an even more amazing couple.  Congrats Austin and Melissa…truly honored to have photographed your beautiful day!   There were many amazing vendors that helped make this day special.  I will leave links to their pages/websites at the end of this blog post.
