Loren and Danielle first met 8 years ago when they both worked at Applebee's. Maybe it was because they worked in different restaurants or maybe it was shyness, but four years later they finally went on their first date!
The two went to Granite City, shared a pizza, and then went to a movie. Loren let Dani drive her car and, of course, Dani scratched the bumper pulling too far into the parking space! But after that first date neither Loren nor Dani could deny the feeling that they had found the one. As Loren says, "When you know, you know!".
Loren and Dani have always considered Colorado their home away from home. So when it came time to decide on a location to get married, there was no debate! It had to be Colorado. They chose to have their first look at Moraine Pointe in Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park before they headed up to Lily Lake for their ceremony. I have to say they could not have picked a better location!
Dani anxiously awaited seeing her beautiful bride for the first time...
It was a very emotional first look as Dani turned to see her gorgeous bride. As soon as Dani turned around, Loren's tears started flowing.
Dani and Loren's humor, energy, and love was contagious amongst the aspen trees. This is one of my favorite photos because it really shows how genuine their love is!
We took photos at Moraine Pointe in Rocky Mountain National Park before heading to their ceremony location at Lily Lake. We could not have asked for a more beautiful backdrop!
I feel so honored and humbled to have been the photographer to capture Dani and Loren's deep, deep love for one another. Congratulations you two!
