Wedgewood Black Forest Spring Wedding | Denver Wedding Photographer

Today is Wednesday which means we are half way through the week and it's time for a #weddingwednesday blog. Today, I want to share Liz + Joshua's Wedgewood Black Forest wedding. This wedding was gorgeous. Every little detail from the bride's shoes to the throw pillows on the bride and groom's couch at the reception was thought about and came together to provide a beautiful and memorable wedding day. 

Here are my favorite photos from Liz + Joshua's wedding day. 

Grooms + groomsmen details are starting to become my favorite!

Liz surprised Josh with a custom Steelers jersey, needless to say he loved it.

Liz wanted to perfect wedding gown and she made that happen by designing it. Her dress was gorgeous and the bridesmaid dresses coordinated perfectly.

I love when brides take time to enjoy themselves before the wedding.

Joshua had a gift delivered to Liz as she was getting ready. There wasn't a dry eye in the suite.

I'm so glad we took the time to get shots of Liz with her girls in their gorgeous floral robes.

This flowergirl loved the camera and it loved her back!

It doesn't matter how many weddings I get to witness, I still love watching the Mother of the Bride zip up her daughter's wedding dress. It is so beautiful and symbolic.

How gorgeous are these invitations. So simple, beautiful, and classic.

Joshua beamed all day.

Although Liz + Joshua opted not to have a first look, Liz did want to do a first look with her dad. It was such a sweet moment and he had an instant calming effect on her. It was beautiful.

The Wedgewood Black Forest's Chapel is such a beautiful space and Liz + Joshua were able to make it their own. And I loved that they had an unplugged ceremony. Their guests were able to be 100% present during their ceremony.

Joshua's smile as Liz walked down the aisle was perfection.

I loved these unique bridesmaid dresses. The color, how they flowed, how they coordinated with Liz's dress and the different ties all made these dresses perfection.

You should never take yourself too seriously and I loved the faces we got out of this bridal party. So fun!

Liz looked stunning in the gown she helped design. It fit her and her personality perfectly.

These groomsmen took a little bit to loosen up, but totally rocked it after they got warmed up.

This wedding party was beautiful. They coordinated perfectly and stood out among the pine trees.

Bride and groom photos after the ceremony always make my heart happy. The nerves are gone and you are riding that "just married high"

I absolutely love this set. Liz's dress flip and the amazing way Joshua is looking at Liz.
