Valerie and Chad’s Denver Butterfly Pavilion wedding photos were extra special to shoot. Not only did I get to work with a fun offbeat couple, but they also hired my favorite officiant, Married by Maree! Any wedding I get to work where she’s there is a great wedding for me! I’ve said it before, but she does the most amazing custom wedding ceremonies. You can read up about her from the time I photographed her headshots in downtown Denver, or the time we photographed Andrea and Jon’s wedding, or Dillion and Trent’s PRIDE parade wedding!
Anyway, let’s talk about Valerie and Chad – who are both lovers of all things 80s! I had many favorite things from this wedding. First, Valerie’s dress. It’s like a dream dress and I’m head over heels in love with it, even all these months later. Their wedding was in June 2018! Second, Valerie and Chad did a coordinated first dance and it was epic. It was Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion! It was one of my favorite first dances to date. I just love it when couples can get into their wedding and really customize it to fit their personalities. Last, I just want to say what a sweet couple these two were. We had FUN photographing them, I loved getting to know them, and it’s always a great wedding when you walk away feeling like part of their wedding squad forever!
