It ended up being the perfect Fall day for this wedding in Morrison, Colorado at the Historic Morrison Church. Tatiana and Michael had a beautiful and lovely event complete with Irish touches! The mother of the groom made the child’s size kilts that were so adorable! And the bride did all of the floral arrangements herself. I really love covering weddings here because they end up being some of the sweetest and simplest events. The location is a small chapel with room for maybe 100 patrons which limits your guest count to close friends and family making it very romantic.

We were getting a little nervous about storm clouds moving in from the West at the conclusion of the ceremony so the bride and groom decided to go with plan “B” for taking more photos of just the two of them afterwards. We had originally thought about doing the photos downtown Morrison and at a park just West of town, but with the rain looming I’m glad we decided to stop at another park that I knew of to the East of us on our way to the reception at the Irish Rover in downtown Denver. We ended up being at the park at just the right time to catch some amazing sunset shots and these were some of my favorite photos of the day.

The bride had two surprises for her groom on their special day and both were musical in nature. The first was an Irish String band that played music at the chapel and the second was a bagpiper that played their grand entrance at the reception and both were a perfect fit for this event! I did also really like the reception being held at this Irish bar. It was defiantly not a typical wedding reception because of the location and size of the room, but again worked for this event and the couple’s theme. And kept everything cozy and intimate.
