Saint Joseph's & Fort Collins Country Club {Marc & Stephanie}

Stunning Colorado sunset!

Stunning Colorado sunset!

I remember the first time I spoke with Stephanie.  Kris and I were on vacation, visiting family in Spokane when we received an email inquiring about their wedding day.  After chatting for an hour, we just connected!  Stephanie worked for a major investment firm that I trained for and Marc was coaching for Vanderbilt University at the time.

As a wedding photographer, word of mouth is our number one source for referrals.  Stephanie's dad learned of us through his dental hygienist!  When he mentioned his daughter was getting married and they were looking for a photographer, Angela quickly told them they had to use the photographer who captured her daughters Della Terra wedding (Click Here).  Fast forward a few months and we were standing with this wonderful couple on their wedding day.  

While trying to plan a destination wedding and juggle work, we kept up with Stephanie and Marc through email and Facebook.  Just a few short months prior to their wedding day, Stephanie posted that they'd be "moving home" and a link that announced Marc as the new Assistant Receiver Coach for the Denver Broncos!  Elated, they were now working full time, packing up two homes, changing jobs, planning a wedding out of state and moving home to Colorado!

With their engagement session complete and less than a month before their wedding day, Kris and I started working through all of their wedding day details.  Starting their amazing weekend at Marc's parents restaurant (Sonny Lubick Steakhouse), we were excited to meet some of their family and friends before the big day!!

As their wedding drew closer, we arrived at Bask Salon with Stephanie looking even more beautiful than the night before.  Her smile was contagious as her mom watched her baby girl prepare for the first day of the rest of her life.  With a gorgeous setting for their nuptials (Saint Joseph Catholic Church) and a wonderful location for their reception (Fort Collins Country Club), Marc and Stephanie were set for an amazing day.  As they said their I Do's and enjoyed their reception, we watched yet again as two became one and were surrounded by nothing by love and laughter.

To Marc & Stephanie: We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to capture your happily ever after.  As the years pass and memories begin to fade, we pray that the images bring a smile to your face and love in your hearts.
