Ceremony: Groom’s home in Black Forest, Colorado
Reception: Cathedral Pines – Black Forest, Colorado
Photographers: Megan and Callie – Megan Hardre Photography
If you love the idea of a “do-it-yourself” wedding, or a Pinterest wedding, or anything in regards to being crafty at your wedding, you’ll love the details from Kaylee and Sam’s wedding. It was a forest wedding, with burlap, lace, pearls and lots of personal touches. They were married just a few weeks after the fire roared through Black Forest, but thank God, his parents home where their ceremony took place, along with their reception site, Cathedral Pines, was spared. It was however, one of the rainiest ceremonies I’ve ever photographed. We knew that might happen going in though, so we came prepared, and Kaylee was too. And, as it often happens in Colorado Springs, after it rained hard, it skies cleared and we had the most incredible lighting for their photos together. Thankful!
See that bow of flowers on her dress? Yeah, she made that! Burlap and lace. A girl after my own heart.
Meet Sam, Kaylee’s groom.
Their ceremony was held at the groom’s parents home in Black Forest, Colorado. And, Kaylee did all the details from the hanging paper lanterns to the burlap isle runner to all the really cool signs hanging on the trees and in the ring barer’s hands.
There’s something about umbrellas, rain and a ceremony in a forest that is quite fabulous.
The reception was also in Black Forest at Cathedral Pines.
Kaylee’s mom made her incredibly beautiful cake.
As a wedding favor, they asked their guests to take a sapling to plant to help “rebuild” Black Forest after the fire. My favorite favor to date.
Thanks for the fun, Kaylee and Sam. Wishing you both the best in Washington! Cheers!
