Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding | Jessica and Mike

Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding with mastodon photoJessica and Mike have been together just over 3 years (3 years, 3 months, and 9 days on their wedding day to be exact), and couldn’t wait for their wedding day to get here.

There is a natural ease between the two of them and one of the things that I admire most about their relationship is their obvious partnership.  Prior to wedding day they bought a house together and settled into their new norm, excited for each little (and big!) project that came their way.  They successfully renovated their basement AND planned a wedding, which is no small feat.

When they told me that they had chosen to have a Denver Museum of Nature and Science Wedding, I jumped for joy.  I spent hours wandering the diorama halls looking for the perfect backdrops and envisioned the above Mastodon photo for months.

Finally their wedding day arrived, perhaps a bit rainier than expected, but absolutely perfect in so many ways.

Congratulations Jessica and Mike–I’m so happy for you two and can’t wait to see photos from your Hawai’i honeymoon!
