Romantic Sanctuary Golf Course Wedding // Elise + Nick

Elise and Nick are my favorite. I've never seen so many smiles on the wedding day and her son is the most adorable dude ever. Their notes to each other were so precious and it reminds why a film is the perfect way to capture your wedding. You can hear the emotion in each word, and watching this again ten, twenty, fifty years down the road it will mean so much more. 

I loved shooting at the Sanctuary Golf Course. The views are second to none and it really shows how amazing Colorado can be no matter the season. So glad they braved the cold to share their love. 

Sanibel Island Wedding Cinema - Promo for Casa Ybel

I was recently hired to come out to Sanibel Island for this amazing wedding venue, Casa Ybel. It is a quiet island and Casa Ybel is the only resort here where you can get married right on the beach! Sunrise and sunset are just stunning and that pool looks pretty relaxing too. Watch here to get an idea of what it would be like to get married on the Florida beaches.

Beautiful Boca Raton Wedding // Marcy + Wetteny

I love the beach, I love the sand, I love the water, and I love when people get married near it! Marcy and Wetteny got ready at the Boca Raton Resort before having their wedding at The Addison which is just one of the most beautiful places I have every shot, The giant trees framing the ceremony add so much life. Destination weddings are great because we get a little more time to spend everyone and really get to know the couple and their family. This family was full of love energy, and twins!

Rainy wedding at the Garden of the Gods Club // Carlyn + Kagan

Rain is a beautiful thing sometimes, and sometimes it is not. But it is most beautiful at weddings when it comes down early in the day, and then the skies part for beautiful outdoor sun drenched ceremony. Carlyn and Kagan Got married at the Garden of the Gods Club in Colorado Springs. The view is second to none, and so was the love. Enjoy watching their wedding film below!

Lindsey and Bryan // Thanks to You

Wow, There couldn't have been a cuter bride, and a more generous and kind groom on this day. Lindsey is more Lindsey when she is around Bryan, and Bryan is more Bryan when he is around Lindsey. While Denver weather seems to threaten weddings this time of year, they waited out the storm to have one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've seen on the rooftop of the Four Seasons Hotel. So excited for these two to get started.

Sarah and Drew // Noodle Till the End of Time

When I get asked "Michael, if you could do video of anything, what would it be?" They are always surprised when I say "Weddings." There is something about watching a couple go from nervous laughter while getting ready, to tears before they walk down the isle, to smiles that wont stop after the ceremony. It is all amazing, just like Sarah and Drew. Sarah love every moment of the day. She kept asking me "Isn't this place amazing?! Aren't my bridesmaids awesome?! I love him so much, isn't he just incredible?" Yes. Yes to all of it. Drew was calm and collected all the way up until he read his vows, where we could all tell how much each of those words meant to him. All of this was topped off by the incredible views of Arrowhead Golf Course and the beautiful details and finishing touches. I would like to introduce you now to Sarah and Drew.

Rebecca and Nate // I Choose You

Nate and Rebecca are adorable together, You can tell just by the way they look at each other. This incredible wedding was at Della Terra in Estes Park. They came in from Minnesota and brought both their love and accents with them. What an incredible start to the 2012 wedding season.

Behind the Scenes: A Four Seasons Wedding

We wanted to do something really special to show of the hard work, time, and precision it takes to set up a once in a lifetime event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver. A time lapse was our answer. It takes around nine hours from start to finish to go from an empty room to a dream venue. I had a blast because normally I only spend a half hour documenting the set up process to give a feel for a wedding day. Getting video of nine hours of set up I really understood what venues and vendors do to make this an incredible experience. Here are some of the amazing vendors involved. Venue - Four Seasons Hotel Denver

Planner - Table 6 Productions, Heather Allen

Linens - Chair Covers & Linens, Tamara Wilkinson

Lighting & Draping - LMD Productions, Rodd Metcalf

Floral - The Perfect Petal, Cindy Ollig

Kimberly and James // Stronger than Most

Kimberly and James had their incredible stunning wedding in Arizona. All the details from cute flowers in Corona beer bottles to string lights at the reception really brought a feeling of love and uniqueness. This also the second wedding I have done video for where all the bridesmaids wore cowboy boots. Love the style.

Besides being absolutely gorgeous, Kimberly and James bounce off each other so well. That girl code, the unspoken language between women, well they have their own... x2! It was so much fun being apart of this, and they had the perfect end to the perfect day.

Inspirational Wedding Shoot // Denver Wedding Videographer

Inspiration wedding shoots come together because we, as creative professionals, want no limits. When working with clients, you create amazing things that they love. Sometimes we just want to go crazy and do something no one has ever thought of before, or shoot in a place that wouldn't normally be an ideal wedding location. This is how the shoot came to be. Jeanine of Fototails called me up and said they wanted video of this shoot. It was a perfect day of mixed sunlight and the spot we chose couldn't have been more amazing. I personally am a sucker for cupcakes (anything sweet really) so that made this shoot extra enjoyable.

Libby + Clayton // I Can't Wait

Libby and Clayton got married at a beautiful ranch near Canon City. There were horses, ducks, dogs, and many more animals everywhere! It was so peaceful. I met Libby and Clayton on their wedding day. The officiant said during the ceremony, "I don't think anyone can be in Libby or Claytons presence for more than 30 seconds without feeling the need to smile" and I was no exception.

LeAnn + Brandon // The One That Always Makes Me Smile

LeAnn and Brandon are going to have some beautiful kids, of this I am sure. LeAnn is so caring and Brandon is so loving, you can hear it, you can see it and you can feel it. This was still one of the most beautiful wedding venues I have ever shot, the YMCA of the Rockies. I have to admit the Rockies are one of the main things that brought me out here about 7 years ago. My favorite part of this wedding were their vows to each other. Anytime a couple adds a personal touch to the ceremony, it becomes so much more meaningful. LeAnn could barely get her words out, and she had everyone on the edge of their seats waiting for what she was going to say next. You not only hear her words, but you feel them too. Knowing LeAnn and Brandon, It was a perfect place to get married for them. They are mountain kids to the fullest, and they seemed so at home at the top of the peak in Estes Park.
