Yes, Amanda & Cuyler are back on the blog for their fall Denver Museum of Nature and Science wedding from this past Saturday. Travis joined me as always to help document the day from start to finish and what a day it was. If you missed their downtown Denver engagement photos be sure to check them out.
Amanda showed up with a small army of amazing friends to help set things up and of course drink a little bubbly before getting into her dress. Meanwhile, Cuyler was at the hotel sipping on whiskey with friends and practicing his vows. I know this because Amanda showed me a hilarious Instagram post and a text message on her phone. I could tell that put her at ease because she knew that her best friend and soon to be husband was equally excited about the day.
My favorite moment had to be witnessing the two of them seeing each other for the first time. They’re both expressive people but their faces lit up like I haven’t seen before.
Before we knew it, it was time to get hitched. I knew they wanted to get to the party when it was announced that they were aiming to have “the shortest wedding ceremony that you’ve been to.” Believe it or not, at 7 minutes and 28 seconds, it was the second shortest ceremony that I’ve ever photographed, falling just 20 seconds short of the record (trust me, I looked it up). They made their time atop the terrace of the Museum count though, as their vows were both heartfelt and hilarious. Amanda even promised to continue to squeeze Cuyler’s butt when they’re old and wrinkled. The view was stunning as the sun began its descent behind the Denver skyline and Rocky Mountains and before you knew it, it was time to party.
The best part about their Denver Museum of Nature and Science wedding was that they had full range of the west atrium where their guests dined in the Australia exhibit before setting the dance floor on fire on the ground level. It shouldn’t go unmentioned that everyone also had a blast in the Photo Booth.
I’m so glad that Travis and I could be a part of their day to help make some of those memories last.
