Meet Emily and Andrew; married on June 14 at the Mount Vernon Country Club above Golden, CO. Only minutes from Denver, Mount Vernon features stunning views of the foothills to the East and Denver beyond. This set the perfect Colorado stage for friends and family arriving from all over the country.
Emily is a volunteer at the Birds of Prey Foundation in Denver and we were fortunate to have a few of the birds join us for the day. An early highlight to our day came when we were able to make some images with Emily holding a magnificent red-tailed hawk. As beautiful as this bird was, she had nothing on Emily. When the two came together, the play of elegance and grace from opposite ends of a spectrum formed a special magic I had never witnessed. Wow, what a treat!
What about Andrew? Well, he was in for a treat of his own, as his bride was escorted by her proud father to join him on the wedding deck for their exchange of vows. Yes, we were in the lower foothills just above Denver, but for the next 30 minutes, we were on top of the world. At long last came the kiss we’d all been waiting for and we were off and running!
I was joined for the day by my long-time friend Randy Cupps. Randy is an awesome photographer and always brings his A game, contributing many great images to the day.
Congratulations Emily and Andrew! Thanks for including us in your wedding celebration!
