The day could not have been more perfect for Lauren and Jeff. I’m so incredibly honored that I was the Denver wedding photographer that was able to photograph their joy. The new Mr. and Mrs. Kuhn were married at The Pines at Genesee in beautiful Golden, Colorado. Before arriving at The Pines at Genesee for their wedding, Lauren and Jeff prepared for the day in a beautiful Airbnb and their shared home, respectively. Lauren was surrounded by her nearest and dearest. Upon walking in to photographer her details, I heard sound of laughter from her two sisters, brother-in-law and mom. Coffee and mimosas were flowing. It truly was the perfect morning!
After putting the final touches on hair and makeup, photographing all of Lauren’s beautiful details and her stunning Lillian West dress, we left to take photos at The Pines at Genesee. Then, Lauren prepared in the beautiful bridal suite and Jeff donned his suit on the patio with the help of his brother. After an emotional first look with her dad and pup, Mala, Lauren was ready to meet Jeff at the end of the aisle escorted by her mom and dad.
Lauren and Jeff met in May of 2020 and shared their first date at beautiful Washington Park! When asked, they describe their relationship as “equal amounts of weird”, which I think many of us can relate to. Their ceremony reflected their relationship perfectly…with a good combination of tears, laughter and moments of reflection. Even their dog Mala made an appearance down the aisle!
After the ceremony, I think the sun somehow knew that newlywed photos were happening! It streamed through the trees making for the most picturesque moments inside the trees at The Pines at Genesee meadow. After we took romantic portraits, we ventured inside where Lauren and Jeff were announced into their reception. Delicious dinner followed, and we even got to sneak out for some sunset photos behind the venue before the most loving toasts.
Guests quickly jumped on the dance floor after eating. The party started and I don’t think the dancing stopped! Luckily, there are a bunch of hotels near The Pines at Genesee. The venue is only thirty minutes from Denver so Lauren and Jeff’s guests could party the night away without worrying about a drive down the mountains of Colorado.
Lauren and Jeff, thank you again for inviting me in document your day. It was an honor!
