Yet another Spring wedding where Colorado decided to be a little difficult. In fact, the entire start of the 2010 wedding season was terrible, in terms of cold weather. Fortunately, Mackenzie and Derek’s wedding got sunshine, at least. You can’t tell from the photos (one of the many wonderful advantages of still photography), but the entire day was on the verge of being really cold.
In fact, the couple photos after the ceremony were downright freezing. But other than a little rosy color on the cheeks and nose that had to be retouched, it looks like a beautiful summer evening.
And did Mackenzie complain? Nope. I would venture to say, she and Derek were “quite warm”. They are one of those couples (like we should all try to be) who are really, really, REALLY, into each other and have no problem with PDA. I don’t want to get into too much detail here, but I knew from their engagement session that this was going to be HOT.
But their PDA isn’t that uncomfortable “get-a-room” kind, but rather that joyous “I’m-so-happy-I’ve-found-you-and-I’m-scared-if-I-let-you-go-I-might-wake-up-from-this-amazing-dream” kind of PDA. It’s inspiring and it made my heartache for Charlotte (my wife, who I work with, luckily), so I hugged her a lot that night.
Might I also point out, that Mackenzie happens to have the official title of “Bride Most on Top of Her Game… Ever”. She booked us 2 years ago. Talk about planning ahead! And in the course of how we’ve grown over the last two years, our prices have increased rather tremendously, so she also saved herself quite a chunk of change booking that far ahead (hint, hint, wink, wink potential 2012 and 2013 brides…)
Thank you, Mack and Derek. Your wedding has been a long time coming, and it was pure joy to capture this day for you two. Thank you for giving us that honor and responsibility!
