Victoria and Andrew’s Denver Botanic Gardens wedding was a super special one, not only because the gardens are one of Denver’s absolute gems, but because this is actually where Victoria works. Being a part of the gardens every day, she knew that the Woodland Mosaic would be the perfect spot for their small wedding.
While we absolutely love photographing elopements and small weddings in the mountains, there’s also something really special about Denver Botanic Gardens weddings that captures the outdoors in such a gorgeous way. Seeing these two pledge their love to each other with their favorite humans gathered into the botanic garden’s tiny little solarium was something truly special to witness. 10/10 would relive this day again.
After their small wedding ceremony, we met back up with these two at Andrew’s parent’s home, where they had a little backyard get-together with friends and family to celebrate the day. Outdoor cocktails and yard games ensued for a gorgeous ending to this small Denver wedding.
We met up with Victoria and Andrew around sunrise to capture some couples photos in the morning light. Denver’s Cheesman Park Pavilion is right outside the Denver Botanic Gardens and made for the perfect spot to photograph these two in their element, dancing together and enjoying those moments before their small wedding at Denver Botanic Gardens.
After we wrapped up at the pavilion, we all drove over to one of Victoria and Andrew’s favorite coffee shops for a quick coffee and breakfast, where these two snuggled up in a booth together with some espresso.
Victoria and Andrew had their small Denver Botanic Gardens wedding ceremony at the Woodland Mosaic ceremony site in the early morning. They gathered with a small group of their closest friends and family and shared their vows within the sunlit windows of the solarium.
We love the Denver Botanic Garden’s solarium for small weddings because of the cozy intimacy it exudes during events like this. So so so beautiful.
After their garden wedding ceremony, we all took a midday break and then met back up in the evening for a backyard celebration of drinks, yard games, and mingling.
We snuck Victoria and Andrew outside before the sun set to snag some photos of these two hanging out in the neighborhood. We made out way to a local park and snapped some photos of these two playing around in the warmth of the evening sun.
