DEAN + DELANEY CROOKED WILLOW FARMS WEDDING
COLORADO MOUNTAIN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER - PART ONE -
From the very beginning of our planning process, it was completely evident how invested both Dean and Delaney were in their wedding day and each other. While Delaney worked to make sure she chose the prefect vendors, location and dress... Dean also was planning his own little details to show his love for his new wife. From the the letters to the Moms and his bride right down to the tips of Delaney's boots, Dean went to his own lengths to make their wedding day perfect. This isn't something I see from every groom. So many brides expect tears and romantic notes and something right out of a novel. Don't get me wrong, those grooms absolutely love their brides too... no question about it and typically it's an issue of privacy for a lot of these guys. BUT the level of devotion and thoughtfulness that Dean put into their wedding day was just rare. They both declared their love for each other on this day. Not just in words but in their actions with their efforts to making the day what the other person dreamed of.
July 20th threw a lot at us. I've seen some crazy weather on wedding days. I've done a wedding during a tropical storm in Florida, I've slipped and fallen in flooded grass in the mountains, I even did a wedding the day after the Manitou Flood in all of it's muddy glory.... but I have never seen such insane lightning and wind. If you look at the first photo, that's the little gap between the area where the Bride was getting ready and the building across is where Dean was getting ready. Surrounded by metal roofs, it was a sketchy little dash in the pouring rain to go back and forth. Typically I take the dress outside to be photographed... well that definently was not an option.
