Dawn and Todd
January 3, 2015
The moment I came to the hotel, I knew it was going to be a seriously gorgeous wedding. First off, Dawn is a seriously stunning lady, and secondly… she has some pretty great taste!!
I mean, just check out those rings!
The daughter of the bride (a.k.a: the flower girl) took her job seriously from the first moment! She had her basket in hand long before she was even out of PJs! And what are hotel beds for, but JUMPING!?!
I am in love with practical brides… one pair of pretty heels… and one pair of DANCING shoes!
What a view from the top of the Cook!
Dawn and I came down to the entry to meet up with Todd for their first glimpse. We used this pillar for them to hold hands around… You can sense their anticipation to see each other!
And there they go. Love their delight in each other!
And then came the waterworks. I think she kinda likes him.
We had a few minutes to wander around the hotel and take some pretty photos to remember the day by. Dawn is just so gorgeous, it was not hard to get a beautiful photo!
Ahh, and the socks!Wedding colors!
She’s just happy to be in his arms!
There may not be any snow, but don’t be fooled… it was SUPER cold!
So… on with the fur coat!
Dawn and Todd wanted to make their wedding day extra special. They chose to do quadruple duty on their big day… and it really became a day to remember. They were Baptized, Christened, Married and had their first Communion together all in one morning!
You can really sense their daughter’s excitement as her dad gives her a quick squeeze before the ceremonies begin.
The sun streamed in those beautiful stained glass windows during the Priests Exhortation.
It was pretty brave of Dawn to be baptized with her wedding hair and makeup. She told me that the priest promised to be careful with it, and he was. After the baptism, they quickly changed into their Christening Robes.
There was a bit of a down time… and all the kids lined up with their tablets in the hall.
Then came our flower girl’s big moment! She did an awesome job with those petals… then hung up her basket and played the wedding march for her mom to walk down the aisle.
Her brother did awesome as the ring bearer too!
I am not sure if Dawn’s dad can smile any bigger… but he’s trying!
Married!! I just love this moment… she realizes that after the Kiss… she’s NOT the ONLY one wearing bright red lipstick!
And then their first communion.
She thought ahead for the kneeling too! Check out the bottom of their shoes:
Todd’s not the only one that walked away with some snazzy socks!
These kids were ecstatic to ride in a car filled with balloons and all decorated with cans! It was a pretty big day for them, but this was just FUN.
Dawn had hired a horse drawn carriage … so we took advantage of it! We took a few photos with the gorgeous mountains and moon in the background.
When we got to The Bridge, the night time cold had truly set in. The glowing lights of the resturant were a welcome sight.
Once inside, everyone enjoyed drinks and tapas prepared for them by the amazing and detail oriented Bridge chefs.
If you like good food, this is the crew to make it for you! I love a good bit of seafood… and this stuffed halibut filet was so delicious!
Dawn had prepared so many things to make her guests comfortable. She had a kids room filled with games and kid type snacks… all the way down to providing dancing shoes and an adorable peppermint hot chocolate mix for each of the guests. Talk about considerate!
Since the parking was a couple blocks away, the horse drawn carriage stayed on hand to ferry people back and forth.
Dawn’s sister in law made this gorgeous cake! Great job!
