Bedroom Slippers and Cinderella: Daniel & Ara’s Classy Wedding had BOTH!

I have been excited to share Daniel & Ara’s wedding on the blog since the day we booked their wedding photography package!! That’s because their story is so wonderful, who they are so incredible, and the joy that was already present contagious. On their wedding day, Ara truly reminded me of Cinderella at the ball-she was beautiful beyond compare, her dress the right shape, and when her hair came half up half down for portraits it was sealed! The fact that bedroom slippers played a funny part in their story just fit even more.

On their first date, these two were meeting in the middle of Denver. Ara was living in the Northern Denver Metro of Thornton while Daniel was far South in the Denver Tech Center area. Well, after his drive and checking to make sure that he was all put together, Daniel realized that he had never changed out of his slippers and into his shoes! Ara IS pretty distracting, he can’t be blamed. 😉 When they told me they’d be bringing their slippers to be photographed at the wedding, I about died of first laughter, and then enjoyment. That’s a peek into what working with them was like.

Ara and I have known each other since Jr. high, but lost touch in the college years. She contacted me about photography and that reunion was so sweet to my heart. Daniel & Ara, I am so honored that I got to photograph your day. My heart, prayers, and love are for you both in this new season you have begun…and I will ALWAYS be rooting for you!!! ❤

A huge shout out to my amazing 2nd this day (2 weddings in a row that week), Rhema Peterson. She’s a rockstar! Also, Glenmoore Country club in Englewood, Colorado was their wedding location. It was beautiful!

Daniel & Ara specifically did a “no look first look” to be able to pray together. 100% a big deal.
