Ryan and Rachel have officially known each other since 1st grade, but they didn’t start dating until college when they randomly bumped into each other with friends in a bar.
6 years later and the two have built a beautiful life in California together.
When it came time to plan a wedding they chose beautiful Colorado for their celebration and found an utterly gorgeous VRBO to host their reception. The venue was full of European mansion charm and has the prettiest back yard and patio which was perfect for their intimate wedding.
They held their ceremony at one one my favorite spots, the Woodland Mosaic Gardens at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Their ceremony featured traditional Jewish elements under the Chuppah and a witty rabbi that made their whole day fun. After the breaking of the glass and some time to greet family and friends, we snuck off to do couples photos in the gardens.
The Gardens are really coming into lushness by Late July and there were so many beautiful and colorful spots that we found for portraits.
After we left the gardens, it was back to the VRBO for a catered dinner on the patio and dancing under the market lights.
From start to finish, it was a gorgeous day!
