Lakeside Estate Wedding {Colorado Wedding Photographer}

Is it already 2016? What happened to 2015? Holy moly what a busy year!! They say as you get older that time flies by even faster and I never really understood that. Until now. I am going to be 32 this year. Am I worried about it? Not really at all but it is kind of scary. Though this year went by super fast there were a lot of really amazing moments like that amazing sparkler exit from Mike and Tiffany’s Campus Wedding, or our amazing trips to Cali and Florida for  both a wedding and a vacation, I am excited for a new year and another awesome season of weddings!!

This wedding, from August, was truly a lakeside delight. From the gorgeous setting, to the lovely couple, to all the incredible details it was just beyond words!! I am so honored I was there to share it and that I can share it with you now!

Andrew & Lauren it was such a pleasure working with you both!! Dominic and I were so honored we could help give you the wedding day of your dreams! We wish you many blessings for a long and happy life together!

Enjoy your story! 🙂
