Goal #86 – Theresa and Eric’s Romantic Gardens Wedding

I teamed with Cassie Rosch Photography in September to cover Eric and Theresa’s wedding at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

Not only do I LOVE 2nd shooting alongside Cassie, but its been a goal of mine (on my 101 Goals in 1001 Days list) to shoot a wedding at the Botanic Gardens.  Ever since I worked at the gardens last year I’ve been dying to shoot there and I was so excited when I learned that Eric and Theresa’s ceremony would be taking place in the Romantic Gardens.

After the ceremony we headed downtown to the Magnolia Hotel for the reception.  Someday I’m hoping to photograph a full wedding, reception included, at the Botanic Gardens but for now  I’ll take the ceremony as a good enough ‘check!’ for goal #86!

Below are some of my favorite photos from the day.  Thanks for having me along Cassie!

I used to work at the Denver Botanic Gardens and love having the chance to go back and photograph weddings.  This means I know hidden spots! Let’s talk about your ideas and favorite spots at the gardens!
