What amazing weather we had at this Willow Ridge Manor wedding the first weekend in August! Another amazing couple that shared their vows at this picturesque venue.  Our whole team covered this event. Faith and I did the photography while Taleen used her amazing video skills and my husband, Michael with Digital DJ provided microphones for the ceremony and music and entertainment for the reception. I love it when we all get to cover an event together as everything usually just clicks!  Henry and Bethany were just a joy to work with as well…. lots of love between these two as well as from their friends and family.

I  also loved the Art Deco/ Great Gatsby theme they created for their event. The Golds and shades of purple worked amazingly with this venue. Art Deco represents luxury and glamour. The style uses a lot of geometric shapes and bright colors that seem to be very popular right now with couples and worked really well for these two!

Here’s to many years of wedded bliss in their future! Congrats again! ~Jamie

Moose Lodge at Crooked Creek Wedding – Jordan & Kyle from Jamie Striplin on Vimeo.

This destination wedding for this couple from Missouri was amazing! So many couples coming from the plains to get married in the mountains lately! It’s awesome! And this couple did it right… they came with just their close family and friends. There were only about 20-30 people total for the sharing of their nuptials in a field by this Air B&B rental. No caterer to pay for, no large venue, a friend grilled steaks for everyone, no florist, even a friend did their photography… this opened up their budget to have me videotape this important event for them! It was a great day… but any day I get to spend in the mountains is a great day! Enjoy this highlight video from their perfect day!

Lovely spring wedding at one of our favorite venues, Willow Ridge Manor. Lots of love and laughter was shared at this amazing wedding the first weekend of May! We worked with a lot of great vendors for this one. Check them out below:

I’ve shared a few images from this wedding already on Facebook, but now that their highlight video is officially completed I just wanted to share it along with some of my favorite photos from the event! This day was honestly a blur for me… large weddings usually are because there is so many photos to take and so much to do! It goes so quickly!  Kaylee’s mom, Lisa came to me after I did the video of her son’s wedding back in February. They loved their video and I think really enjoyed working with me. Since I was willing to put together a great package for photo, video and DJ with my husband’s company, Digital DJ we were able to provide all three of those services for this event. We like to offer savings to couples looking to book multiple services together with us as we truly love working together. There’s something to be said about knowing for sure that you and the videographer are going to be able to stay out of each other’s shots and that the disc jockey has your back and you have theirs! My husband, Michael’s help has been instrumental in numerous occasions… so when couple’s are willing to use us together we like to reward them!

But enough about us… let’s talk about this fabulous wedding! Lisa and Kaylee put their heart and soul into this event! And it was amazing to see how many people came out to share their love and support for this couple. Right away when they told me what time they had booked their ceremony for at this venue I knew it was going to be a challenge as the sun was slated to set at the exact same time the ceremony was to begin! And I knew that if they ever were going to have beautiful mountain views in their photographs they were going to have to do the majority of their formal photographs beforehand. Kaylee and Matt, however really did not want to see each other before the ceremony. Of course I completely understand that, but I really had to  impress that there’s not much a photographer can do to ensure those beautiful views in the absence of light! So a plan was born… they exchanged hand written vows between a wall before they saw each other and we dubbed them actually reading their vows with the footage of them reading them in their full length video.  We then captured a first look between them alone before we dove into the the other photos and this moment was absolutely magical and heart felt. I’m so glad we were able to do this before the craziness of the wedding! There were so many other great things about this wedding. The funny moments while the guys were getting ready, the fun all the ladies were having jumping on the bed as Taleen and I entered the room, the limo ride with the ladies that Taleen got to capture on the way up the mountain and the beautiful wedding ceremony itself along with the best “asking Dad for his daughter’s hand in marriage” story told during the Father of the Bride’s speech that I’ve ever heard!  It was an awesome event! Mike kept the dance floor packed all night and made sure each and every event during the reception went off without a hitch! Thanks again for having us be such an important part of your day! Enjoy some of my favorite moments below! ~Jamie

We’re very excited to share the highlight video above and favorite photos below from Chris & Julia’s end of September wedding in Denver at the historic Grant Humphrey’s Mansion.  Chris and Julia put a lot of love and care into their big day! The bride made all of the gorgeous paper flowers herself for not only the bouquets, but also for each and every one of the centerpieces for this wedding. They were absolutely stunning! So much so that I told her she should start a business of just doing this for other couples! Not that she would have any time because she is playing violin with the Denver Philharmonic! She even took the time to share a piece with her guests before the dinner service started at the mansion. We ended up with a very beautiful warm day for this event and it was great being back at this iconic wedding venue in Denver! Thanks for having us capture your special day!

Just finished up the video and photos from this late July wedding at Willow Ridge Manor. Jon, Eve and their friends and family were a joy to photograph and videotape. There were so many smiles and laughter at this event that we never had to say “cheese”! When I first met with this couple I immediately clicked with them because they were high school sweethearts who had been together for 10 years before they tied the knot just like my husband and I were when we said our “I Do’s” and now on the eve of our 12 year wedding anniversary I can look back fondly and remember where we started through reminiscing with a another young couple in love!  You two have been together longer than a lot of marriages survive already so I have faith that you have many, many more years to come together. Thank you again for having us capture your special day, I’m so excited for you to see your photos and your finished video!

Abbi & David’s amazing mountainside wedding at The View Restaurant at Historic Crags Lodge in Estes Park, Colorado. Beautiful ceremony for a wonderful couple.

The first thing I noticed abut this couple was that the groom, Craig has an infectious smile! He was seriously grinning from ear to ear all day long and from what I understand this is a fairly common look that he carries. Nidia is lucky to have such a happy fella to count on! These two teachers met at a school they were both teachers at. Their love of teaching brought them together! I think it’s especially fitting to share this post today when thousands of teachers are walking out here in Colorado to protest better pay and funding for schools. I believe that all teachers should receive a livable wage and a great retirement. Since the costs in our state are continuing to go up so should the amount of money we pay as taxpayers. Having better educated citizens will benefit everyone in the long run! And who doesn’t want to support people like these two!

So enjoy this lovely Spring event at one of the most picturesque venues in the foothills near Denver! These guys were a joy to work with and I can’t wait for them to get their final video and photos!

 

Here also is the highlight wedding video of their ceremony!
