Gorgeous Broadmoor Hotel Winter Wedding | Frank and Angie

Frank and Angie were my very first couple who I couldn’t meet until the morning of their wedding.  I didn’t know what to expect.  Angie was always a joy to correspond with via email and phone but I just wasn’t sure how she and Frank would feel in front of a camera and with a photographer they’ve never met (one of the many reasons why I encourage an engagement session by the way but more on that in a later post).  They both live in Chicago and planned their wedding from afar (with the extraordinary help of Kelly Turner of Luxe Weddings).  Well, after meeting them I knew the day would be a breeze.  They were so warm and sweet.  Angie kept saying, “Sure, I trust you!” all throughout the day and I loved her for that!  When couples can let go of any agenda and allow for the professionals to do what they do best, the day can flow so wonderfully and, in the end, make everyone extremely happy. Enjoy the following photos from their elegant winter wedding at The Broadmoor Hotel.  Perhaps I got a tad carried away with the images, lol.               p.s. Grab the tissues for the first look photos of Angie and her dad and brother.

This was my first attempt at some off camera flash. I’m quite pleased to say the least. Probably my most favorite photo of 2013.

The natural light was gorgeous in the bridal suite.

The look on the girls’ face is priceless. They were so excited to see their friend step into her stunning wedding gown.

Frank got ready in one of the Broadmoor’s beautiful Brownstones just across the street from the hotel.

first look with father and brother

I was so excited when Angie wanted to do a first look with her dad and brother. I knew it would be a tear jerker for me. It still is today.

christmas lights add sparkle to the portraits

The lights! The beautiful twinkling lights! I love Christmasy weddings

I love the girls’ boleros! And now I want to be in a winter wedding. 😉

Wedding portraits wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the bridge.
