From the photographer, From the Hip Photo: Noam and Alexandra’s wedding was held this past September at the Four Seasons in Downtown Denver. The couple wanted a classic black tie affair which was perfectly executed by Calluna Events. The bride wore a silk Kelly Faetanini gown with jeweled lace bodice. The groom and groomsmen looked sharp in black tuxes while the bridesmaids wore long Adrianna Papell beaded gowns in champagne. The bouquets from Newberry Brothers featured pale pink and lavender accents that echoed throughout the wedding décor. This amazing wedding day was filled with friends and family from across the world.
From the bride, Nicole: The Blue Ridge Mountains hold a special place in our heart, my husband proposed to me in Banner Elk, North Carolina and before we ever even thought about marriage, I knew I wanted to be married in a place that fills with me awe every time I am there.
I wanted my flowers to be very lush and romantic, reminiscent of the Secret Garden, a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett that I loved as a child.
The ceremony was by far the favorite part of my wedding day. Turning the corner with my father and seeing my soon-to-be husband with this breathtaking backdrop behind him was undoubtedly a moment I will never forget. The first time I locked eyes with my husband as I walked down the aisle was the best part of my day!
I really wanted my flowers, greenery and centerpieces to add a feminine touch to the wood and stone that dominated the venue decor.
The reception was a blur of well-wishers and hugs and dancing.
Looking back, if there was anything I could go back and re-do about my wedding day, I would have hired a professional wedding-day coordinator. The day of any wedding is so busy for the bride, and to have someone who can handle all the little details so that the bride can enjoy every moment of the day, is, I think, very important. I had my sister-in-law be my wedding day coordinator, and looking back, I think that was unfair for her because my future sister wasn’t able to truly enjoy the day her little brother got married.

From the photographer, Dreamtime Images: Brittany and Ben showed up in Estes Park for their elopement at Della Terra Mountain Chateau and were greeted with a beautiful winter wonderland. The town was digging out from beneath one of the most intense spring storms. After a brief ceremony, Brittany and Ben cut a wedding cake, drank some hot chocolate, and the three of us ventured into Rocky Mountain National Park for a snowy but beautiful couples portrait session.
Julie & Roger were wed on May 28, 2017 at Silver Hearth Lodge which is perched on the top of Bent Mountain in Roanoke, Virginia. Guests not only enjoyed dinner and dancing, but a bonfire, s’mores, horseshoes, and rocking chairs on the porch. Most guests spent much of the reception outside relaxing and admiring the breathtaking mountain scenery.
