This was our first time shooting at Baldoria on the Water. It’s a great new wedding venue in Lakewood, Co. The owners, Jamie and Linda, also run a fantastic catering company called A Perfect Bite that we’ve worked with many, many time over the years so we were really looking forward to checking out their new place.

To top it off, Jeff and Kristin worked with Linda and Jamie in the past… so it was also a family reunion of sorts… which made for an awesome party. What stood out to me most about this wedding, and what I see even more reflected in the pictures, was the laughter. So many genuine smiles… So much happiness between these two, their families, and their friends.

There are so many pieces to a wedding. So many details and significant moments that add up to create one of the most unique experiences of a person’s life. Attending as many weddings as we do, you’d think those details would blur together and it’d become hard to differentiate between one wedding and another, but it’s not.

In fact, at every wedding there are certain moments that are so loud that you can’t help but stop and pay attention. The first of those moments, for me, for Kiel, and I’m sure for many others, was seeing Stephanie in her dress.

Absolutely radiant. Stephanie was stunning. She took everyone’s breath away.

My second favorite piece of the day was Kiel surprising Stephanie by learning a song on guitar and singing it to her during the reception. Kiel braved the stage at the manor house, for what I believe was his first ever live performance, with no ambition to gain attention for himself, but to simply give his new wife a gift.

It was pretty great, as was the entire day.
