nine29twelve: Kat and Chris Got Hitched!
About a month ago, (HOLY CRAP, TIME GOES FAST), we were making our way down to Colorado Springs for a long-time friend’s wedding. We have known Kat for what has to pretty close to 10 years now. Corwin met her when he started school at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in the early 2000’s and we’ve been close with her since. Even when she deserted us (and the rest of her CO family) and moved all over the southwest, we stayed in contact. So, over the summer, when we found out she and Chris were moving back AND they were going to get married approximately 10 seconds after they unpacked, we were thrilled. That excitement multiplied when Kat asked us to photograph her big day. We worked out a half photographers/half guests game plan and collected our gear and made the drive south.
Kat and Chris chose the eclectic Hillside Gardens for their wedding. This place is incredible and is seriously the epitome of the word eclectic. There is amazing, random EVERYWHERE (examples: A giant birdcage with an equally giant parrot in it, a ginormous head, old gas pumps, etc.). Corwin and I both want to go back just to take in and photograph the whole thing. These grounds combined with all of the personal details Kat and Chris included made for fun, bright, super-cool wedding. Let’s take a look:
(Girlfriend took her job seriously).
And here’s just a few from the reception. This is when we moved into the “guests” position and a little bit away from being “the photographers,” so we don’t have a whole bunch of the reception shots, but I do love the ones we got!
Congrats, you guys! We feel so lucky thatwe got to be there and that we got to document it for you in the best way we know how. Looking forward to our pizza date later this week!
