Kadie and TJ’s Wedding | Lionsgate Event Center

I loved working with Kadie and TJ for their wedding at Lionsgate Event Center located in Lafayette, Colorado. The venue is so unique, between The Dove House, The Chandelier Barn, and The Gatehouse, along with all the beautiful photo-ready vignettes throughout the property which are just perfect for photographing in a variety of different eclectic settings.

On Kadie and TJ’s wedding day, she got ready at their hotel room and then came to the venue to get into her dress. He got ready with all his groomsmen at the venue after reading a heartfelt letter from Kadie. They both exchanged letters before their first look, which was a beautiful moment for each of them.

My favorite moments that day were definitely the first looks Kadie shared. First, she had a first look with her dad in a beautifully lush garden. Her dad was a little emotional as he saw Kadie for the first time, which was a moment I felt so honored to be able to photograph.

After Kadie’s first look with her dad, she had a first look with TJ in the Chandelier Barn. The Chandelier Barn is a breathtaking ceremony space with 32 hand-crystalled chandeliers. There wasn’t a wedding in the Chandelier Barn that day, so they let Kadie and TJ use it for their first look.

After their ceremony in the outdoor garden right outside The Gatehouse, Kadie and TJ hosted a beautiful dinner for their guests under twinkle lights. At the end of the night, their guests sent them off with sparklers.

I’m so happy for you, Kadie and TJ! Congrats!
