Aaron had his back to Jenny as she walked toward him for their first look. His shoulders were tense, posture bent, and face full of nerves. But then he turned around and saw her and everything changed. His body instantly relaxed and a smile spread across his face that was more genuine than anything I had seen all day.
Weddings can be nerve-wracking. There are timelines to stick to and people to greet and vows to say in front of everyone you know. But those stressors melted away when he saw Jenny and the real reason for the day became very apparent to him: he was marrying his true love and best friend. This was the first day of the rest of his life. And for me, it was an incredible moment to capture.
Jenny’s dad also had an emotion-filled reaction when he saw her. He couldn’t stop telling her how beautiful she looked. It was one of the sweetest first looks I’ve ever had between a father and daughter.
Jenny and Aaron got married in Golden, with the mountains providing the perfect backdrop. They giggled through their vows, clearly focused solely on each other. After the ceremony, the party headed inside for a really fun reception. My favorite part (and I think Jenny and Aaron’s too!) was their first dance. They danced to a Rascal Flatts song and had it completely choreographed. It was so impressive to watch and obviously something they had a ton of fun learning and practicing.
Their day was an excellent reflection of the love in their lives, with plenty of friends and family supporting them. Aaron and Jenny, thank you so much for including me in your big day. I’m so happy for you both and so thrilled to have documented the first step in the journey of your marriage! Thank you!
As always epic thanks to my associate photographer Seth of Seth James Photography.
