Mary Conboy and Scott Fillery were married September 19, 2011 at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado.

We started their wedding off by Scott and me driving up into Rocky Mountain National Park to Horseshoe Park ahead of Mary as they chose to see each other all dressed up before their wedding and have a photo session in the park.

Scott is from Australia and Mary is from Connecticut. Broomfield, Colorado is now their home and they wanted to have a mountain destination wedding to show their families and friends what a beautiful state they live in.

Their ceremony was Stanlheld in front of the historic ey Hotel followed by a reception in the Music Room.

Jay Kacik of Standing Room Only DJ provided sound for the ceremony that was held in front of the Stanley Hotel. As well as sound and music in the Music Room for their reception.

Congratulations to Mary and Scott!

Jen and John were married at The Stanley Hotel July 30, 2011.

I’d never met Jen and John until moments before they had a private reveal in the gazebo several hours before their wedding. They wanted to have time to drive up into Rocky Mountain National as they are both huge hikers and back packers and in fact they named each table at their reception in The MacGregor Ballroom after different National Parks where they’ve hiked.

One of the defining sequences of moments of the day started with a tap on my shoulder while I was kneeling in photograph flower girl Mahayl, niece of the groom. The ushers were rolling out a runner. I moved over and they continued as Mahayl walked up tossing flower petals and stepped though the runner pull cord without missing a beat and then join her mother where she paused to wiped her brow as Jen and her father were coming down the front steps. She was cool, comfortable and calm just like Jen and John.

Jen’s father Rev. David Stewart performed the ceremony which included everyone singing several hymns. He did a great job of moving around so he could sing with the family and friends who were seated in front of the historic hotel, then turn around and speak directly to the couple. It really was a beautifully orchestrated and personal ceremony.

Cheers, Kent
