Caroline and Brad’s late summer/early fall Wash Park wedding was nothing short of AHMAZING, including a first look, a jaunt through the Mount Vernon Garden, and a reception at the Wash Park boat house!
We started out at the Caroline’s Airbnb for getting ready photos, about a 5 minute drive from Washington Park (fondly known as Wash Park) in downtown Denver. I love when couples find gorgeous homes to get ready in. The outdoor space was beautiful with a small garden space and unique gateway to hang bride Caroline’s dress. Caroline and her sisters, mother and cousins all gathered in the beautiful open air bedroom to bathroom space to get dolled up while I played around with details. Putting on Caroline’s dress was so special and sweet, with her mom and all of her sisters around her. The feminine energy was beautiful and bold and made me wish I had sisters! (Just kidding I love my brothers).
We then set off in my car to Mount Vernon Garden for a first look with Brad, who was happily hanging out in the park that he and Caroline first met in. Brad and Caroline are both huge runners, so it was only fitting that they got married at where they first met in a running meetup group! When we got there, excited ensued and we got to take in a lot of extra time to relax, chat, and of course have fun with our first look shots.
We then made our way to ceremony spot in Washington Park, where close friends & family gathered to celebrate the union of these two love birds. It was a gorgeous Denver day, sunny, a little wind to cool us all down, and a few clouds to give us a break from the sun. We all hung out inside of the Boat House where bridal party put on their boutonnieres, mamas put on corsages and we all shared some snacks. It was a nice quiet moment before the ceremony. To ensure there was an element of surprise, Caroline hired a Pedicab to take her from the BoatHouse down to the ceremony so no one would be able to sneak a peak of her prior to walking down the aisle. It was so cool! Loved the Pedicab dude too. I wish I remembered his name. Will ask Caroline!
After the ceremony, the Peddy Cab came back around and grabbed Caroline & Brad at the end of the aisle and whisked them away for a ride around the park and quiet moment to really settle into the “WE ARE MARRIED!!” feeling.
Huge thanks to Caroline & Brad for choosing me to safely take photos of their big day and to Cherry Bomb Events for putting on on heck of a party!
