Joe and Laura’s Two Rivers Winery wedding was a beautiful romantic celebration. The two were so relaxed and just glad to be able to gather with their loved ones and finally be married!
After getting ready at the chateau on property, we separately made our way up to the Monument for Joe and Laura’s first look. While it was really windy, the overcast skies made for incredibly beautiful light! The joy on Joe’s face as he first laid eyes on Laura was the perfect moment to start the day. After playing with the veil in the wind for some portrait time, we made our way back down to Two Rivers for photos before getting tucked away as guests arrived.
As the guests arrived, some ominous clouds appeared above us. The planning team and the venue had several apps and tabs open with minute-by-minute weather forecasts and radar. It was clear: it would be raining exactly at the ceremony time. Sure enough, as guests scrambled into the venue the skies opened up and rain poured down at the exact time we were meant to start the ceremony! Fortunately everyone was able to gather inside to stay out of the storm, and in true Colorado fashion, the rain passed within a matter of minutes. After drying off the seating outside, the ceremony was able to go on as normal. The best advice I have for rain on your wedding day is summed up as, “Don’t panic!” Things will always work out!
After the ceremony guests were seated for dinner, followed by the toasts and cake cutting. I loved that they opted for a combo of a small cake and other goodies for a dessert table! The dancing lasted into the night, until the DJ announced a surprise performance by Joe’s best man. He proceeded to perform a karaoke version of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” as two women volunteered to be backup singers/dancers, and friends in the crowd got out cell phones to hold up and wave. It was pretty darn epic if I do say so! It was the perfect ending to the night.
