Willow Ridge Manor Wedding | Danielle & Dan
Storm’s comin’. Better get your partying in quick, because with hours of these photographs a blizzard will hit Denver. But there’s still time. Laugh, hug, kiss, toast, eat, drink, and dance.
Danielle and Dan are Colorado poster children. The met on a camping trip. Fell in love on a long hike. They have dogs. They love college football. Right now, I’ll wager two tickets to see Dave Matthews at Red Rocks that at least one of them owns a Subaru. So a wedding venue that shows off Colorado’s dynamic landscape would only do — enter, Willow Ridge Manor. Danielle was ready for any inclimate moments as all the guests had monogramed blankets to remember the day. The mix of moving clouds and sun made for some dramatic moments, and guests just huddled together closer for the really cold parts. The couple started the ceremony with a pass around Ring Blessing … in this case, a Ring Warming.
Thanks so much to florists Clementine’s Divine Designs for connecting the bride and I. My contribution to the vendor chain was to bring along my partner in crime, MC Johnny Cruz who let out some his “I’ve been cooped up in my house for too long this Winter” energy. Pictures don’t lie — the crowd ate it up. As a DJ, pied piper, master of ceremonies, Juan’s usually so over the top, but I looked back to see a very rare, comtemplative moment. Thankfully I had a camera.
