Melanie and Buck were married July 11, 2015 at her mother’s home in the Congress Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado.
Malanie grew up in this central Denver home and chose to get married in the backyard where she and her brother and sister had played as children.
Buck brought his two teenage daughters into the marriage as flower girls who walked him down the aisle just a head of Melanie and her father coming around the corner from the front of the house though a side gate on a flagstone path.
Their ceremony pulled on heart-strings as well as humor mixing laughter and tears. As a Denver Wedding Photographer, their heart felt backyard wedding ceremony reminded me of when I worked for a small town news papers such as the Glenwood Post. Where as a photojournalist it wasn’t always about covering big fancy events but rather more about capturing the simple little slices of life moments.
Thank you Malanie and Buck for choosing me to document your wedding.
