We are so glad to be photographing Nanci and Curtis for their wedding this spring! We had a great meeting with Nanci and her coordinator, Elisabeth Montoya of The Bella Sera Event Center, and we just knew working with them going to be a blast. Nanci and Elisabeth’s story is cute too- even though Nanci and Curtis’s party is too big for her event center, the two liked each other so much that Nanci asked her to coordiante the wedding. We enjoyed meeting Curtis as well finally at their engagement- he’s so personable and amiable.
Golden is a great place for engagment pictures, especially during a sneaky warm Colorado winter day. Although, it wasn’t THAT warm- there was quite the wind, but luckily since the buldings in downtown Golden are fairly close together we could mostly avoid the worst of it. I like that there are so many photography options within a relatively small area of town. Within a few square blocks we could get more rustic Colorado mountain shots, photos with snow and pine trees, and a few more urban images. We often recommend that you look for an engagement location that’s the opposite of their wedding look for variety. Nanci and Curtis will be married at the downtown cathedral on Colfax with the reception at Cielo at Castle Pines, more urban areas, so Golden fit perfectly. Plus, the winter atmosphere gave Nanci a chance to show off her mom’s bit of engagement shoot styling- her little scarf and headband set. I think it looks adorable; I think she looks like she walked straight out of a 1910’s silent film.
We hope you guys and your families had wonderful holidays, and we can’t wait to see you again next spring!
