Julie & Marty’s Wedding | Cherry Hills Community Church, Colorado | Denver Wedding Photography | Apollo Fields Wedding Photographer
Julie and Marty had such a sweet and sentimental wedding in Denver, Colorado. I met them on recommendation from Cherry Hills Community Church and was so excited when we had breakfast together in Golden to chat and get to know one another. I immediately sensed that they had a very caring and sentimental relationship, so I knew their wedding would be no different!
The day began at the church with the guys and gals busy getting ready, everyone had an upbeat and calm vibe which is also a relief to walk into as a wedding photographer! Before long, it was time for Julie to get in her dress and Marty’s finishing touches on his suit. It was really important for them to do a first touch between the curtains at the church, which I’ve done with past couples in that space so I was excited that they were also on board for this sweet touch. They held hands and prayed together and it was such a sentimental moment for them to share before the day got hectic.
The ceremony was so meaningful and included songs and special readings. Afterwards, we did family photos in the sanctuary before moving over to the Riverwalk Club House for the reception. Julie and Marty did a fun grand entrance and went straight into their first dance. I was really excited for this dance because ballroom dancing is one of their all-time favorite things to do and they had been rehearsing this special dance for a long time prepping for the wedding! Of course, they nailed it and I was just so impressed!
Their speeches were also one of my favorite parts of the day. This was a second marriage for both of them and it was really great to see how their love has matured and where they place their values for a wedding. I’ve learned a lot personally by shooting second marriages because I think they are able to prioritize the right stuff and really trim the fat off of the frivolous and extraneous stressors.
