Caitlin and Larson Heartwarming Brookside Gardens Wedding


We knew we would have fun at Caitlin and Larson’s wedding after shooting their engagement photos earlier in the year, but we weren’t quite prepared for the heartwarming day that they had planned.

The stage was set for their Brookside Gardens wedding in Berthoud, CO. The venue bursts with color and the new arbor is a beautiful backdrop for any wedding, but the couple made it as much a part of their wedding day as if they were at their own home. Caitlin’s dress had hearts sewn into it made from the flannel of her grandfather’s shirt and Larson wore a belt that was part of his grandfather’s baseball uniform. The belt had broken a year before the couple got engaged but Caitlin had it repaired and gave it back to him for a Valentines Day gift. During the reception, Caitlin’s grandmother gave the couple a beautiful quilt she made adding to the family warmth of the day.

We also got to photograph the couple under that amazing arbor during an amazing sunset. We can’t guarantee a sunset at your wedding but we can guarantee great photos. If you’re planning a wedding at Brookside Gardens or anywhere else, text, call or email us.
