Alli & CJ Wedding - Blackstone Rivers Ranch

These high school sweethearts have just stolen my heart!

Alli & CJ have are two of the kindest people I have ever met and it was such an honor to start working with them last year with their engagement session to their wedding this past May. Alli has such an incredible eye for details and her bridal style was truly timeless.

The day was truly joyful from the second I arrived. I've never photographed a groom getting ready that was radiating pure joy when I walked in the room. His excitement to see Alli at their first look was palpable. Their first look was everything I had hoped for them - full of excitement and it was so sweet to hear them whispering to each other. They chose to read their vows during this time alone and it was so nice to witness them so relaxed and at ease.

They exchanged rings under giant, Colorado pine trees, in front of a unique ceremony backdrop of florals and greenery swaying in the breeze in their short but sweet ceremony. They celebrated with their closest family and friends under the giant sail cloth tent at Blackstone Rivers Ranch. The tables were generously covered in greenery and the most perfect peonies I have ever seen at a wedding. Guests enjoyed dinner from a bibimbap and taco station, I loved the idea of bringing two different types of cuisine into the wedding like this! I absolutely adore the images from their cake cutting where they had a tricky time removing their slice of cake. It made for unscripted images and I love the way Alli & CJ laughed their way through it together.

I couldn't have imagined a better way to have spent Cinco de Mayo than watching this perfect couple commit themselves to one another.
