kelly & mark

my first colorado wedding!! and my kelly did not dissapoint! kelly & i were ceramic majors in college. there were four girls & we spent all kinds of crazy late night hours in the studio making some cool art, having fun & becoming close friends. i know i have a cool polaroid picture of the four of us but can't find it at the moment. but i do have this picture of kelly & i. framed in my studio now.

i got to meet mark before they were kelly & mark. they came out for the ceramic convention in phx a couple years ago. kelly knew he was something special & we had a few conversations about it then. fast forward many months later & i get a phone call "um, can you shoot my wedding -junish?" happy dance proceeded.

they were married on june 25th in carbondale colorado. (kelly & i took a summer class at arrowmont in tn. she has stayed in close touch with one of our instructors, peg. the wedding was at her house up in the mountains- it was beautiful.)

so without further ado, the pictures:

her beautiful dress.

her awesome shoes!!!
her soon to be sister n law getting her all pretty!

kelly... um, no words for this.
sweet moment with mama.
mark getting ready! look how excited he is!!
their first glance. too cute!!!
mark & kelly's grandpa showering her with love.

i LOVEEEEE the portraits we got. LOVE. can you sense the excitement in my voice?!

probably my fav.
isn't he handsome?!
& adorable all in one man! kelly, you got yourself a catch, girl!

beautiful mountain view during their i do's. the skies looked a lil worrisome but nothing came of it except some shade!

thought this was beautiful of each of their parents up there with them.
they had their rings made by a friend. they were really cool!

they made so many of the elements to their wedding... kelly made this & mark picked the design.

mark made the cups/vases & kelly made the little frames. marks mom made the lil pieces of tablecloth! it all looked simple but beautiful.

this lil beauty shows up in kelly's work quite a lot. her mom always said she'd get her one when she got married!!!! it made a debut on her candy table- those sour strips were SOUUUUUUR.

their band was awesome!

the bridesmaids getting down.

i love this.

& to top off the perfect day was an incredible sunset.
to a long & happy life filled with great art, lots of bubbles & laughter.

congratulations you two!
