Hudson Gardens Wedding- Sarah & Dan

Recently I had the great pleasure of photographing Sarah & Dan’s wonderful Denver wedding. It was at the at the beautiful Hudson Gardens with their ceremony in Monet’s Garden and the reception to follow on site.

Sarah and Dan put together fun details that included wonderful hats that Sarah’s Mom found at an antique show, a fabulous short wedding dress, amazing bouquets from the Perfect Petal, great food from Catering by Design and wonderful tunes by A Music +. Some fun surprises were thrown in by Sarah’s family- like her sister’s tear and laughter inducing slideshow and her family’s “welcome to the family Dan” song set to the University of Michigan’s fight song.

I think it is visible on the all of their faces that is was a day full of joy and laughter.

Thank you for allowing me to be a witness to it all. Congratulations you two!  I wish you a life full of love and happiness!

    As the Mother of the Groom I am thrilled with these photographs. You captured so many tender, beautiful, and hilarious moments. I’m glad that I could save them in a shopping cart before I had to check out since there are countless pictures to order. Thank you for your unobtrusive yet timeless memories of some of the best moments in our lives.

    Rachel these are absolutely beautiful and it was really fun having you there with us from the salon on through…the pics are perfect and you captured so many of my sister’s facial expressions which make the memories of the whole day even more beautiful! Good luck with your upcoming arrival and we really enjoyed your company…once I have moved out there and find the man of my dreams you will be at my wedding too (I hope!)
    Be well,

    Rachel and Trish-
    Well done!!!! I agree with everyone that you captured every emotion of the day- the joy, the laughter, the surprise, the hilarity, and the touching moments that brought a tear to our eyes. I am so thrilled that we were able to work with two such talented photographers, who not only were great at their profession but also really fun to be around.
    Love, love, love it!
    Sarah (the bride!)

    Kudos to you – I thank you for honoring my request to only include me in the minimum of pictures – the slideshow and the photographs are amazing – love the choice of B&W or color – it was a wonderful event made all the more special by having the people that mean so much to us there – I am thrilled you were at the salon to capture those moments as well – I especially like the private moments that just Sarah and Dan shared and then you got to capture the “Little guy” as well. Thank you so very much – Sarah picked a winner when she chose you!

    Wow. Perfect in every way and the photos captured it beautifully. Great job and a
    day and evening to remember always. You even made an old father of the bride look
    as good as he gets! And I must say you were the most pleasant and unobtrusive photographer I’ve met under spontaneous circumstances. Well done!

    The Photos with music are moving and beautiful. Since many of Dan’s relatives couldn’t make the trip, expecially his Grandmother, it gave them a sense that they made it to the Wedding after all. What a treasure! Thank you.
