Kathy & Phillip | Sapphire Point Overlook Wedding

Kathy and Philip have been waiting a long time for this day to come. They began dating when they met on MySpace… that’s right, MySpace was still a thing when they first started their relationship. Fast forward a few years, and in 2014, Philip and Kathy decided they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with each other.

After two years of planning their wedding, on July 14, 2016 they held a beautiful, romantic ceremony for their closest family and friends. These two love their family and friends so much, that when I spoke to Kathy about their family portraits, she asked that we take photos of all their guests as everyone was family to them.

We began our day at the Hotel Frisco, where both Kathy and Philip got ready to see each other for their first look. One of the things that I noticed was that Philip had a smile on his face the entire day when he glanced at his bride. During their first look, I don’t think there was anything in the world that would have taken that smile away.

Their ceremony was held at Sapphire Point Overlook, where the view of the Tenmile range is breathtaking. Friends and family carried down wooden benches hand made by the groom for all the attendants to sit on to watch as Kathy and Philip said their vows. During their emotional ceremony, each of Kathy and Philip’s children said a few words to their parent and soon to be step-parent. Hearing about the love these two share for each other and the support given to them by their children was quite emotional and very beautiful.

To end their evening off the right way, we all headed back to the Hotel Frisco for pizza, lasagna, cake, and champagne (or bourbon for the groom). All the guests were invited back to suite 200, where Kathy and Philip opened their room to all their loved ones to share an evening of tears, joy, and laughter.

Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your beautiful and romantic wedding, Kathy and Philip. It truly was an honor to photograph you and your intimate ceremony.
