Tears, Sweet Reactions, and and EPIC Confetti Exit: Kevin & Stephanie’s Joyful Wedgwood Forest Colorado Springs Wedding Day!

Kevin & Stephanie make me smile just thinking about them! They are a perfect match, and when I think about the dynamic between them I think of Fire. There is such a strong connection between them, and it is a BLAST to photograph! They are also incredibly kind people. I’ve said before, and it holds, that kind people are my favorite. It’s such an important character choice and trait-and these two have it in abundance!

These two an a gorgeous wedding day in August at the Black Forest Wedgwood in Colorado Springs. The Colorado Wedding Photographer in me got excited about their venue from the get go, as it has a magical forest area back behind the venue itself. You’ll find how classy this day was in the photos, but a couple sweet pieces of info include the fact that Kevin is a pilot and they have one heck of a proposal story including being up in the air. Kevin had actually asked Stephanie out in College, but they weren’t in close proximity and it never came to be. Until after graduation, when Steph was taking a quick flight over the mountains to home on the Western slope and Kevin happened to be the pilot that day. 😉

The amazing team of vendors on this day included DJ Maestro’s Chelsea-she rocks if overtime! Whitney Milton of Whitney Milton Films-She’s amazing! And my incredible 2nd photographer, Kathryn Kim who rocked the day with me. You’ll see some of her images in this post. Lastly, they had biodegradable Confetti for their exit…and let’s just say it’s officially on my favorite list!

Kevin & Stephanie, thank you for the HONOR of having me with you on such an important day. I loved every moment of it!!!

Steph gave him a very important tie clip, for him to wear when he flies.

This is an all time favorite capture-for the record I did not ask them to do this. They did it on their own.

Not many couples request a shot like this, and it makes my heart beat faster when they do. First kiss from behind cannot get any more epic!!!
