Weddings this year have been so fun! We've met brides from all over the US, traveled to some amazing locations and photographed at a few new local venues. Garden of the God's was one of those locations and boy did it live up to the expectation!!
We met Rachel over the phone several months before her wedding. After learning about how she and Drew met, how he proposed, listening to her plans for the wedding and learning she booked her venue without ever seeing it, I couldn't help but get excited! A madly in love, laid back bride, what more could you ask for?
Garden of the Gods Country Club is breathtaking with gorgeous mountain views. No matter which direction you looked, the view became ever more expansive and beautiful. With Colorado's intense sun, we were blessed with a gorgeous day, amazing clouds rolling in and out and not a drop of rain. For Colorado folks, we considered their weather a perfect day, but for native Texans, they couldn't believe how chilly it was in August! LOL :D
As we approached their first look, you couldn't help but see their love for each other. Tears streaming down their faces and knowing they'd waited their entire lives to experience this one special moment.
To Drew & Rachel, we thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your amazing day. Your joy towards each other is something that needs to be shared with the world. The love and respect you have, isn't something to take lightly. God has blessed each of you beyond belief and we are so honored to have had the opportunity to capture your first moments as husband and wife. We hope your enjoy your photos and with each passing year, you're able to relive such a wonderful day!!
