Abbie and Natalie spent the night before their wedding day together and it perfectly set the tone when it was go time.
They were both relaxed and excited the whole time they were getting ready with their individual wedding parties. The nerves kicked in a tiny bit when they got into their dresses, but mostly they couldn’t wait to see each other.
We arrived separately at City Park, and despite a slight location change because of the jazz festival, they shared a first look among the lilacs. They chose to read their vows to each other at the first look and tearfully spilled their hearts to each other. The looks of love in their eyes was all we needed to see to know this day was going to be epic.
After some portraits they were joined by their wedding party, where each side tried to outdo the other with their fun and energy.
We headed to Upper Larimer for their ceremony and reception.
They held their ceremony indoors to beat the heat, but there was plenty of beautiful light coming in at the ceremony site from the industrial windows of the venue.
Abbie’a brother officiated Their ceremony and highlighted parts of Abbie and Natalie’s relationship, stretching back 9 years ago when they started as “just friends”. After vows, rings, and a kiss, they exited the ceremony to riotous cheers from their 175 friends and family who had come to celebrate with them.
They enjoyed pizza from mountain crust and drinks in the patio.
We snuck out for sunset photos in RiNo
They shared deep and meaningful toasts from their family.
Then it was dance time! A beautiful first dance, father/ daughter dances full of every.
And a surprise flash mob performance of “Dancing Queen”!
