Photographing this Skylight wedding in Denver was such a blast! I met Andrea and Andrew through a recommendation from the wedding venue Skylight. Skylight is nestled in the Santa Fe Arts District of Denver, which has become one of my favorite neighborhoods since moving to Denver years ago. Everywhere you walk you can find different murals. It’s amazing and full of the Denver spirit.
Andrew got ready at their home in the Baker neighborhood, not too far from everything happening that day. He was joined by his brother, best friends and their cats Wax and Whip. They did what boys do…drank bourbon and cried about how much they love each other! Just kidding about the crying, but they did have bourbon and Andrew did share cards with handwritten notes personalized for each of them.
Andrea stayed at the Art Hotel and got ready with her mom, sister, and closest friends. The room had stunning views of the snowcapped mountains with Denver tucked into the foreground. When I arrived the room was filled with Laughter and Love. To keep their energy high, Club Sandwiches and Mimosas were on hand. Mom was finishing up her hair and it was almost time for Andrea and Andrew to do their First Look. In record time, her friends helped into her dress. We then headed to the location which we had preplanned early that week… the lobby! I know you’re probably asking yourself why the lobby?!? Well….it’s the giant windows that provide such amazing photos at all times of day. After a quiet and surprisingly private moment, we headed out to take pictures around the neighborhood, have the ceremony and party the rest of the night.
Dinner seating was open so that old & new friends could met and chat. Skylight also set the room with long tables and comfy lounge furniture. This promoted the open, loving feeling the couple was seeking for their wedding. The venue was decked from floor to ceiling with greenery which made it even more welcoming. AND to top it all off, Andrew’s Grandma provided the art that sprinkled the walls.
Skylight, is known as one of the newest wedding venues in Denver, Colorado. Nestled in the Santa Fe Arts district it has many amazing photo locations within a short walking distance. Its open concept allows couples to really make it their own and bring to life your vision for your wedding day.
