RED ROCKS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | DENVER, COLORADO
It's hard to imagine what members of the Ute tribe thought when they first saw this iconic natural amphitheater formation that took 200 million years to form. The high fins, that dance in vibrant red and orange and appear to have a different hue as the sun moves across the sky. As you'll see, morning looks dramatically different for a Red Rocks wedding versus afternoon. Scroll down to see three different events that show the dynamic ever-changing looks at Red Rocks.
RED ROCKS WEDDING | TRADING POST | JESSICA + ALEX
A destination wedding with bride & groom from Iowa, Red Rocks held a special place in both of their hearts. Independently, while growing up that both made the epic roadtrips to see favorite musicians performing at the world's most famous outdoor concert venue. The cross country journeys to see a band in another state take on a mythic quality in your memory over time. The rest stops, road food, budget hotels, fighting friends and car troubles try to prove that it's not the destination; it's the journey. But in this case, it's all about the destination. The bands know it's one of the highlights of their tour and give a special push for Red Rocks concerts. As a wedding photographer, I give a special push for Red Rocks weddings as well. This wedding was on a September day with diffused clouds, and the Denver metro was without rain for a couple of weeks. The rocks take on more of a brown look.
RED ROCKS TRADING POST WEDDING | JENNIFER + ADAM
A 90-degree June afternoon, with rain the day before. The rocks are more abundant in color as they've been "washed" by that week's storm. This couple were both locals and loved the hiking along the fountain formations up and down that section of Colorado's Front Range. Those aisle flower petals add a nice color punch on the fresh Summer sod. After the ceremony officiated by our mutual friend, Mike Lee (who officiated my wedding 25 years ago), everyone piled into party vans for a top floor reception at the Denver Grand Hyatt.
RED ROCKS VISITORS CENTER WEDDING | DEB + TYLER
This morning event at the Visitors Center takes on a high sun look with the formations giving their most brown toned hues. If you're planning a Red Rocks wedding, note that the Visitor's Center has enough room and service for a full reception, while the Trading Post is entirely outdoors. During rain at the Trading Post, everyone huddles under the large deck while at the Visitor Center shelter is plentiful in the reception rooms (that have a bit of formation's red rocks jutting into the interior).
