Colorado Springs First Congregational Church Wedding | Meg & Mark

Rocky Mountain politico meets D.C. politico while studying in New England at one of the country’s oldest liberal arts colleges. But,  there’s a twist to this classic East v. West mash-up — Meg’s two BFF’s from high school in Colorado Springs also attended the same college and Mark had to win them over as well! This wedding day had not one, but two Maids of Honor.

The Springs’ First Congregational Church on St. Vrain dates back to the late 1800’s with rhyolite stone quarried in Castle Rock. Meg requested some photos that highlighted the front columns, which was a favorite part from her childhood church. A Romanesque exterior is married to a Tudor interior with glowing polished dark woods and colorful stained glass which offers great backdrops for posed photos. Twigs and Posies contributed a healthy dose of color to punctuate the day.

One of Meg’s Maids of Honor stitched the chuppah which was the perfect canopy for this blended Jewish-Christian ceremony. There was lots of singing my 100+ healthy souls in attendance, but Meg and the Bridemaids surprise all with a love song to Mark (Meg and the Bridesmaids would be a great band name — just sayin’).

This day had so much warm love and creativity, and the reception was over the top! Big thanks to Neil Hanawalt for coming along and adding so many awesome shots.
