Denver Post staff photographer Helen Richardson referred Alison and her father, Denver Post Sports Editor, Scott Monserud, to me because Alison really values photo journalistic storytelling. Both Helen and Scott are cancer survivors.
Scott was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, two years ago. He’s in remission and has been hiking, camping and running, including running the BolderBoulder 10K Memorial Day Classic with Alison this past May.
The wedding day just so happened to be on Father’s Day and Scott rocked it.
Another twist to their Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding was that Bryce is deaf, reads lips and uses American Sign Language to communicate. His best friend, Albert, who is also deaf, surprised Bryce by arriving while he was getting ready. He didn’t think Albert was going to make it for the wedding. Not only was he the Best Man but he and another friend were sign language translators during the ceremony.
Bryce is from India and had a group of relatives who traveled halfway around the world to attend the wedding. It was more of a traditional American wedding, except for the Indian buffet.
Congratulations to Alison and Bryce, thank you both for trusting me to document your wedding.
