I recently had the honor of photographing a wedding in the mountains outside of Creede, Colorado. It was a magnificent setting for Kayla and Wade Henderson’s Wedding, done Cowboy Style! The event started early in the week, with many out of town guests showing up early, in order to spend time in this beautiful area. I took my very first photography workshop in Creede, several years ago and never dreamed that this is also where I would photograph my first wedding.
Anyone who has ever spent time in this part of Colorado, is well aware of the potential for late summer afternoon thunder showers and on Friday, Rehearsal Day, Mother Nature stayed true to form! But, the rain did not slow this group down much and may have even added to the excitement of day!
The rain was fairly steady upon arrived at the site, so everyone waited out the worst of it in their vehicles!
The beautiful bride……..Kayla
…and the groom….Wade
Once the rain ‘almost’ stopped, the crowd moved down the hill to the ceremony site.
There the group received their instructions!!!!
The Bridesmaids, whose biggest challenge would be walking gracefully down the hill!
There was beautiful Music!
Some participants were very happy, and one…not so much……
There were a few ‘details’ to work out…..!
…..and lots of laughing!
and definitely joy and eager anticipation!
