Nicole + Spenser | First United Methodist Church Fort Collins Wedding

This bride and groom met while running track for CSU and knows the difference between sprints and marathons. Sometimes dating can be like a sprint, with all the critical elements in the start of event. Runners practice for hours bursting out of blocks gaining nanoseconds when the gun goes off. Starting a marathon however isn’t that important at all. It’s about the endurance — more important, the willingness to endure the race. Spread your energy out over time, and just … keep … going.

This was a perfect Spring day full of possibilities — a perfect start to a marathon. The rich moody lighting inside First United Methodist Church Fort Collins was a nice contrast to the evening reception at Tapestry House. During the reception, Spenser’s brother Sam gave an hilarious speech. First he accepted his “Best Man” award (as photographed) and gave every Oscar winning cliché in the book (“and I’d like to thank my parents — who happened to be The Groom’s parents”). He quickly got into roast territory, recounting how challanging it was growing up with a brother so close in age and the obvious sibling competition.  He conceeded that Spenser got the good looks in the family but “everyone knows personalities fade, while good looks are forever.”
