I was asked by one of my favorite people in the world, Erin, to shoot her wedding last weekend. I got on a plane and flew to Denver, Colorado and captured her gorgeous wedding at Denver's Chatfield Botanical Gardens. The venue was absolutely beautiful, the bride and groom stunning and the company wonderful. Two days, sixteen hours, three memory cards and 2,200 photos later, here's a peek at Erin and Spencer's big day!
The rehearsal dinner took place at a family friend's house, which backed to a beautiful garden and a neighboring horse.
There was some competitive croqueting, REALLY good food and lots of laughs.

Thank goodness for dads.
