Malia and Bryson were married June 20, 2015, at Wynkoop Brewing Company in downtown Denver, Colorado.
It was planned to be an engagement party, but became a surprise wedding ceremony followed with a reception. A few family members and friends were in on the plan and it played out perfectly in jaw-dropping fashion.
Malia slipped off and put on a simple, little white dress about an hour into the party, while Bryson rolled out an aisle runner. They had a cute little boy and girl enter as flower children, before Malia and her father walked in confirming what the guests were beginning to figure out.
They had a fun ceremony and brew-tinged vows, that were highlighted by sipping a beer from the same glass. Malia and Bryson are both beer enthusiasts which is why they picked Wynkoop Brewing Co. for their wedding location.
For their wedding portraits, we crossed the street to Union Station which has been recently renovated into not only the transportation hub of Denver, but also a landmark with great bars, restaurants, a bookstore, a hotel and much more.
Bryson proposed to Malia last year while snowboarding, so we did their engagement photo session at one of their favorite mountains – Keystone.
Thank you both so much for choosing me to photograph both your engagement and surprise wedding!
A special thanks to Geri and Bill Holland for helping me document the day.
