Heidi and Nate were such a fun couple to work with! Their day was exactly like weddings should be... relaxed, fun, full of love and full of laughter. My second shooter, Dominique, and I met Heidi at her home in Fort Collins to capture her getting ready first and then we moved over to the Tapestry House. The day was gorgeous, blue skies and big fluffy white clouds... until we started driving over to the venue and the big storm clouds started rolling in. Heidi and Nate moved seamlessly through the weather change and decided to move the ceremony inside instead of trying to gamble on the impending weather. The ceremony was perfect! The vows were heartfelt and they included some beautiful readings and a hand-fasting "Tying of the Knot." After the ceremony we snuck out to take some bridal portraits and then the family photos. The way the Tapestry House lights up the trees makes everything feel so special and magical and they provided a beautiful backdrop for all of the family poses. Then the party really started after the cocktail hour with the toasts, cake-cutting, and bouquet/garter toss. Well... sort of, it turns out after a peek from the groom, there was in fact, no garter belt to retrieve! It was quite funny. The dancing was fantastic, I think they had almost the entire group out there on the dance floor, including Nate's grandpa. They finished the night by placing their brick into the ground to commemorate their wedding date. We hope you two had a blast on your wedding day!
