Madeline and Nathan's wedding was held at Two Rivers Winery in Maddie's hometown of Grand Junction on a perfect June day.
The two met on a blind date set up by her realtor in small-town Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Maddie had been living and teaching there for two years, and Nathan was new in town and didn't know anyone. They went to dinner, hit it off, and the rest is a perfect weather day with big smiles and beautiful flowers.
All the flowers—including this large, stunning bridal bouquet—were created by 3 Leaf Floral.
Silk ribbon is always a pretty bed for gorgeous diamond wedding rings.
Maddie's classic and elegant style was reflected everywhere—from her gold Kate Spade shoes to the timeless blush tones she used throughout.
Maddie's bridesmaids were her best friends, and it was sweet to capture them all together before the wedding ceremony.
There is nothing like a backdrop of the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction. It's the perfect backdrop and view at Two Rivers Winery.
Maddie made her grand entrance in a classic car.
The sweet cakes were made by Ever After Cakes and Creations by Heidi Williams, who happens to also be one of my former bridal clients! It was so lovely to see her again.
Wine barrel "guest book!"
I love sunset wedding portraits in the vineyard at Two Rivers Winery. The Monument is purple and pink, and the wine grapevines are the perfect frame.
Maddie found her dress at Anna Be in Denver, and we all loved the way it moved in the breeze.
By the end of the evening, Madeline still looked like a 1960s movie star. (Great hair by Glory Ugalde and makeup by Hope Carlton doesn't hurt!)
It's always set to be a fun party when The Fever plays. There is nothing like a live band to get people moving.
The toasts were both touching and funny.
Maddie's is a dancing family, and Kelly and Nancy really got the party started.
Thanks for inviting me to capture your day Maddie and Nathan! xo cat
