One of the beautiful aspects of photographing weddings in Denver Colorado is the opportunity to photograph at historic architectural locations. Our bride and groom selected the University Club in downtown Denver Colorado for their May wedding. The University Club is a 1895 neoclassical home located at 1673 Sherman Street. The Capitol Hill Club House, now a haven in the shadows of high-rise office towers, is one of the few remaining historic buildings in downtown Denver. Since 1891 is has served as a private social club, where members gather for food, drink, entertainment and athletic pursuits.

Art Silk and Kristen Sloan photographed Shannon and Mark’s wedding day at Cherry Creek Country Club in Denver Colorado on a beautiful warm and sunny June day.
Shannon and her bridesmaids prepared their hair and makeup in the gorgeous upstairs women’s locker room lounge; a dream location to shoot in. Directly off of this lounge, we photographed the ladies on a covered balcony that provided beautiful natural light that we supplemented with diffused off camera flash.
Earlier Shannon and I had met to do a walk through at Cherry Creek Country Club, and I fell in love with the interior spaces of the clubhouse. Later we explored the exterior covered alcoves and balconies, which kept us shaded on their wedding day, provided filtered natural light and interesting architectural backgrounds. Location wise, Cherry Creek Country Club is one of the prettiest clubhouses I have photographed. Jan Hardy, the social director at the Cherry Creek Country Club was one of the nicest event coordinators to work with.
Bonnie Brae Flowers created the bouquets and flower decor for this wedding. Das Meyer Pastry of Arvada, Colorado made the wedding cake. Sugarlicious, located in Cherry Creek North Denver Colorado, created a candy bar which allowed the wedding guests to make custom boxes of candy to enjoy at the wedding and take home as favors. Elite DJ Matt Kenfield kept the dancing going strong well into the night.

Art Silk and Kristen Sloan photographed Courtney and Scott’s Vail Colorado Mountaintop wedding on a beautiful September day. The flowers and wedding decor reflected fall in the Rocky Mountains, but the weather was so warm that it felt like summer.
The couple wanted to be photographed on Vail mountain for their engagement portrait session during the summer. Courtney and Scott are avid hikers, and the field below their wedding ceremony on Vail mountain proved to be a perfect location for this photo session. At the wedding, their cupcake topper also featured mountaineering hikers!
We started photographing the bride getting ready in her room at The Lodge at Vail. Courtney and Scott decided to see each other before the ceremony and we photographed them walking through Vail Village and along the Gore Creek.
The wedding ceremony was held at the top of Vail mountain at an outdoor stone ampitheatre which is accessed by the Eagle Bahn Gondola. The ceremony site offers amazing views of the Vail valley, Gore Mountain Range, and Mount of the Holy Cross, with seating for up to 180 people.
The Lodge at Vail hosted their reception at the Cucina Rustica restaurant.

Holly and Erik’s destination wedding weekend took place at her grandparent’s private ranch Hole in the Wall, outside of Kaycee Wyoming. Hole in the Wall Ranch is situated along Red Wall, Castle Rock peak at 5200 feet and the Powder River runs through the ranch. For over 30 years, Hole in the Wall Ranch has been the location of choice for their family reunions and hosting this wedding was a first for the ranch.
Cloud 9 event planners were the team responsible for coordinating this beautiful wedding. You can view their blog posts of this Wyoming ranch wedding rehearsal and wyoming ranch wedding. Art Silk and I photographed this amazing wedding.
The festivities began on Friday with a rehearsal at the ceremony site, followed by a tradtional Texas BBQ dinner. Many of the guests camped at the ranch in their RV’s. Guests were able to hike the red rock formations, trout fish at Sheep Creek, bass fish at Poker Creek, or mountain bike. Saturdays ceremony was situated in a field along Spring Creek. The bridesmaid and bride were delivered to the ceremony by a team of horses provided by Powder River Percherons from Kaycee, Wyoming.

Art Silk and I decided to shoot some strobist style portraits of ourselves in an industrial area north of downtown Denver. We shot our Nikon flashes off camera with triggers. During the shoot we used a silver reflector and a new light modifier called SaberStrip. This photo shoot was one of my first experiences with off camera flash and the initial results we obtained were amazing.
