Kate and Sam were married at the beautiful Manor House in Littleton, Colorado. The Southern-style Georgian mansion, was built in 1914 and includes gorgeous views of the Front Range, Red Rocks and the Denver skyline.

Kate shares, “Sam and I got engaged at Goodale Park in Columbus, Ohio. We first met in Columbus when Sam was finishing residency and I was finishing graduate school. We took a walk around the park and he proposed at the lake!

We chose to get married at the Manor House because it is beautiful! We loved the grounds with a view of the foothills. We also loved the inside of the house, and it provided many spaces for people to gather in large or smaller groups. We knew most people would be traveling from around the country for the wedding, so we liked that they would have places to spend time and catch up with each other outside of the ballroom. We also wanted our out-of-town guests to get great Colorado views!”

The ceremony took place inside the Manor House ballroom. The flower girl made everyone smile as she took off flying down the aisle! She then turned around and ran back to walk down with her brother.

Kate shares, “I walked in with my Dad to an instrumental version of my parents’ wedding song, Can’t Help Falling in Love, by Elvis.”

Brittney and Bryan were married on a beautiful Autumn day at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle in Colorado.

The couple planned their ceremony so that the officiant was standing in the aisle. What a great set-up! The couple was facing their guests and everyone could see the special moments while the couple could also easily look out and see all of their guests.

Brittney shares, “The wedding was magical and everything we ever wanted! We really wanted to celebrate the creation of a new family for the kids and the knot tying ceremony was a highlight. We choose the Cherokee Ranch and Castle because it is beautiful with amazing views of the entire front range. Our guests were able to tour the castle during our mocktail hour and learn about the history which was an amazing touch. We felt like the day went without a hitch, everything was perfect from food to decorations. Bryan was amazing for letting me incorporate some Harry Potter flare. Our Harry Potter themed mocktails were so delicious! We had so much fun from the ceremony all the way through dancing. We feel so lucky to have found each other and our wedding truly was an expression of how we feel towards each other.”

The reception was held in the tent and then dancing under the stars!

Congratulations Brittney and Bryan!

I met Katie and John on a beautiful September morning at the Duke Gardens in Durham, North Carolina, for their engagement session. 

Katie shares, “Our story began years ago when we both attended Small World Preschool in Burlington, Iowa. Little did we know, our paths would cross again many years later. I moved to Iowa City with my family during high school, went to Pittsburgh for college, and then moved to New York City to pursue my professional dance career. John grew up in Burlington and moved to Iowa City for undergrad and medical school. In 2020, COVID hit and I moved back home to Iowa City. In December of 2020, my younger brother (also named John) ran into John at the U of I hospital while they were working. My mom suggested that I reach out to John and reconnect, knowing we were both in Iowa City. I finally got the courage to make the move and messaged John on Facebook asking him out for a drink.

Almost 2 years later, we made the move to Durham, NC, where John started his residency at UNC in ENT. One of our favorite things to do in North Carolina is to visit and explore Asheville, with our dog, Lady, of course! On one of our trips, John got down on one knee at the base of a waterfall during a hike.”

And the rest is history!

Katie was my son’s babysitter in New York City in 2017-2018, and we have stayed in touch. I’m so excited to celebrate this special time with her and John and photograph their wedding! Katie and John will be getting married in Asheville on May 11, 2024, at the Biltmore. Happy engagement, you two!

Shira and David were married on a beautiful September day in the Colorado mountains.

The morning started off with a funny complication that turned out making a great story!

Shira shares, “We were at the venue getting ready when my fabulous wedding planner, Meghan, popped her head in to let me know that my groom was pantsless! He had forgotten his tuxedo pants at home, about an hour away. We were supposed to be doing our first look in 5 minutes. To ease the stress and make it a fun memory, Meghan suggested we make him pose in his boxers! It’s one of my favorite moments from the day. My brother, our officiant, saved the day by lending David his pants for the first look. By the time the ceremony rolled around, David had his pants back and all was well.”
(This photo was shared with the groom’s permission!)

Shira shares, “We wanted our wedding to reflect our personalities, so we chose a venue in the mountains and a style that reflected our love of outdoors. The florals were so beautiful, with a messy, wildflower-type look. The centerpieces were our favorite part of the decor; they featured real skulls of a variety of animals, including fox, raccoon, turtle, bat, mink… and the sweetheart table featured a gorgeous roe deer. I collect skulls, so all of these specimens will be treasured forever. We are also having my bouquet dried and pressed to preserve and display.

We met on the online dating app Bumble, and chose to honor that with matching bee hair pins for me and cuff links for him.

One of our favorite details from the day was our shoes – we had so much fun picking them out!”

Shira continues, “My brother did an amazing job officiating our ceremony beneath a chuppah that my aunt handstitched from linens from both of our families. We had some of our closest friends and family read blessings to honor us, and we signed our gorgeous ketubah created by David Fisher in Israel.

Our Hora lasted about 45 minutes and we were both SO sweaty and tired after that, but it was a night we will never forget. We had the most wonderful band, and had a blast dancing the night away with our friends and family. Some of my closest friends from back home in Boston sang for us, which was very special. The food was unbelievable as well, and we enjoyed taking a break from the dancing to toast some s’mores on the bonfire.

Following the wedding, we had a short honeymoon at the Broadmoor Cloud Camp on top of Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs. David’s grandparents had their honeymoon at the Broadmoor as well, and even visited the top of Cheyenne Mountain and took a photo together. We managed to find the exact same location and took a photo as well!”

Shira and David danced their first dance to Leon Bridges’, Beyond.

Congratulations Shira and David!

I met Lilli and Patryk at Red Rocks to celebrate their engagement.

Lilli shares, “Patryk and I first met in Atlanta in 2018, forming a friendship as coworkers. When Patryk moved on to another company, we took the opportunity to begin a romantic relationship and have been happily together ever since!

We love having fun together, and spent our first year of dating enjoying a mutual love of travel, theme parks, and Broadway musicals. In 2020, we quickly transitioned to playing video games together instead – even if Patryk had to carry me through most levels. 

After 3 years together in Atlanta, we packed up and moved to Denver. We’ve since had a great time exploring the mountains, cheering on all the local teams, and doing our best to break out of every escape room within 50 miles.

We’re so excited to begin the next chapter of our lives together and can’t wait to see what comes next!”

The couple is getting married this June in Denver. Happy engagement Lilli and Patryk!
