It’s a small world after all. I find myself thinking that quite frequently, and it was no different when Becky asked me to photograph their engagement photos last winter. I have known Becky since elementary school, and through the power of Facebook we reconnected. Not only was I able to capture some adorable engagement photos at Chatauqua in Boulder last winter, but they also asked me to photograph their Chateau at Fox Meadows wedding!
A few weeks before the wedding, we met up to talk about the details of their big day. To my excitement, they informed me that they would have tons of fun details like Deadpool at the bottom of their wedding cake, Game of Throne themed wine glasses, a Lord of the Rings inspired sign stating, “No admittance except for Party Business” and a Doctor Who inspired card box. Obviously as a photographer I am a lover of creativity, so I loved knowing about all of these special, creative elements that would be incorporated into the day. The two of them also had some surprises up their sleeves, like the fact that they would be stopping in the middle of their first dance to do the Carleton dance from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air! Becky also pulled me aside to tell me that she would be surprising her fiancé, Ross, by singing a song for him during the reception.
Needless to say, the wedding was a blast. Everyone loved seeing all of the unique elements that Becky and Ross incorporated into their day. They also loved seeing the two of them go from a waltz to Carleton dance moves mid-song, and were in awe of Becky’s talent when she sang, “Love You I Do” from Dreamgirls. Sharee, my second shooter, and I had an amazing time being the hired paparazi, and left with the biggest smiles on our faces from having such a great day at our Chateau at Fox Meadows wedding.
