Alex and Anna | Romantic Colorado Wedding | The St Vrain

Alex and Anna had a beautiful, romantic Colorado wedding at The St Vrain, in Longmont.  The St Vrain is one of my very favorite wedding venues in Colorado, with charming, exposed brick walls, wood ceiling trusses, and chandeliers sparkling overhead. The building in which The St Vrain is located was originally built in 1918 and was one of the earliest auto dealerships in the Rocky Mountain region. Other than the beauty of The St Vrain, Alex and Anna loved that their wedding venue had a close personal connection, too—it’s owned by the parents of Anna’s good friend Maddie, who designed Anna’s wedding dress. 

Maddie did an incredible job with Anna’s dress. It was completely custom and was simple, off the shoulder, satin and had a removable skirt. Maddie even helped Anna put on her wedding dress and remove the skirt in time for the reception. It was such a special part of their day not only to have Anna’s close friend design the dress of her dreams, but that she got to make her friend feel so beautiful on her wedding day.

After Anna got her hair and makeup done, we photographed Anna and Maddie and the gorgeous wedding dress Before Anna had first looks with Alex, each of her parents, and her bridesmaids. Later in the reception, Maddie helping Anna put her dress on and helping her remove the skirt, which left Anna wearing a simple midi length with white dress with sneakers for the reception. This was a surprise feature of the dress, and their guests just loved it!

Since the wedding was in September, there was still plenty of beautiful greenery and flowers all around. We went to a nearby garden, where we captured a few portraits with just the couple.

Everybody later celebrated in the reception together sharing speeches, drinks, food, dancing and some delicious cake. To end the night Alex and Anna had a sparkler exit, which always look great at The St Vrain!

Congratulations Alex and Anna!
