When I first met with Dolores and Erich to discuss their wedding photography we talked about music and the arts about 80% of the time. The bride and groom love music as do I and the groom's Dad is a retired photographer. We had a lot to chat about.
On wedding day it did not surprise me to hear classic Motown playing during Getting Ready. Nothing like music to get your mind off of a rainy day. Yes, that's right, it rained on Dolores and Erich's big day. It doesn't matter. The emotion that played out during the ceremony said it all - love conquers!! They couldn't wait for their wedding day and they both embraced it in every way.
Erich gave Dolore's a book of love stories as a gift that she proudly displayed on the table as her friend Heidi did her hair and Cora from Bella G's did make up. You can see the rain through the window in the silhouette above. Friends were also popping in with gifts, including a wonderful heart keepsake that displayed a loving message when turned up.
Our second photographer took guy's shots at Sand Creek out front while I took the girl's onto the golf course for photos. We did a peek-a-boo shot of the bride and groom before the ceremony and brought them together afterwards for couples photos.
As I mentioned, the ceremony was incredibly emotional with happy tears from bride and groom and family as well. It may have been dark outside, but inside the room was lit up with joy, including the wonderful officiant Rebecca Armstrong.
The reception was decorated by Claddaugh Wedding and Events with entertainment by Avant DJ. Erich and Dolores chose to have the Portraits at the Reception add on where we brought out studio lighting and backdrop for portraits. Myself and Lauren Petersen took turns covering the portraits and dance floor action. If you look closely at the photo collage below, you will see the wonderful engagement photos that Erich's Dad, a retired professional photographer, took of the couple. He did an awesome job!!
Wedding season is in full swing, so please stay tuned for more photos from Erich and Dolore's summer wedding at Sand Creek Golf Course in the weeks ahead. You can check back on this page as well as social media.
