When I walked into Alex’s getting ready room and was greeted by a chill group of bridesmaids lounging about in alpaca onesies, I knew it was going to be an awesome wedding day! But that wasn’t really a surprise—I adored Alex and Neil from the first time I met them. Their laid-back, no-nonsense vibe won me over immediately, and I was thrilled when they hired me to photograph their wedding at the Pines at Genesee.
After some getting ready shots at their respective hotels in Golden, we made our way to Clear Creek Park for their first look and portraits. Then, it was into the limo and up the road to the Pines, where guests gathered on the evergreen terrace just after sunset to witness Alex and Neil exchange their vows. It was a beautiful ceremony beneath the evergreens, the golden lights twinkling overhead as the last light faded in the sky to the west. Afterwards, everyone headed indoors to warm up and enjoy a wonderful reception, with delicious food, heartfelt toasts, and an excellent dance party. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day.
