lauren + charlie | married!! | colorado wedding photographer

lauren and charlie are one of the most romantic couples i’ve ever met. it oozes out of them. seeing them with their friends and family is incredible – the love they have for each other is just contagious.

i’ve asked lauren and charlie to try something new with me. their story is so cute, so romantic, and so fairy tale, that i thought there was no better way to share their story than in their own words. enjoy a few of my favorites, with bits of their story, straight from the newly married couple!icon smile lauren + charlie  |  married!!  |  colorado wedding photographer

 

lauren: Pink, especially fuchsia has always been my favorite color and since we were having a spring wedding I wanted to have a fun splash of color. I thought that fuchsia would be perfect for that pop of color I was looking for.

lauren: I have always known that I wanted a really simple classic/classy wedding and when I think of that I think of black and Ivory. I have also always known that calla lillies would be my only flower and I always like the way they looked in pictures of black and white weddings.

charlie: I felt lucky and so happy and couldn’t believe how beautiful she looked.

lauren’s favorite characteristic of charlie:

That he is so spontaneous and he gets me to try things I never would have done on my own (i.e. parasailing in Mexico on the honeymoon.)

lauren: My advice to married couples would be to remember that it’s your day. Everyone is going to have an opinion on how they think things should be done but what matters most is that the two of you are happy and the day is everything the two of you dreamed it to be.
DON’T FEEL GUILTY IT’S YOUR DAY!!!!
