Love Story

Because Brian and I lived in Europe for three years while Brian played professional basketball overseas, we dreamed of getting married in a castle - a castle similar to the European Castles we visited on a regular basis while we lived there. Places we had lived were Belgium, Chez Republic and Greece. Our theme was timeless and we didn't want much color in our decorative pieces. We wanted our guests to focus on the beauty of the Colorado landscape and the castle. Our colors were white, cream and gold. We couldn't have pictured more of a magical day. Everything turned out perfectly and better than we had imagined!

From the Photographer

I had the opportunity to photograph an amazing wedding last fall at the Cherokee Castle + Ranch! The bride and groom were AMAZING - Lauren is a former Bronco Cheerleader + Nugget's Dancer (super Colorado!) and Brian played professional basketball overseas. They're amazing because they actually lived only blocks from each other growing up, and Brian always loved her (swoon!). Then, they each became total bosses and finally ended up together. They were together for a few years before Brian took Lauren to their family cabin over the Christmas holiday to propose in the mountains. They couldn't be any more adorable, in love, or Colorado if they tried! :) Lauren now owns + operates Lauren Ashley Sunless Spa in Cherry Creek!
