Before Mackensi and Austin were even engaged, Mackensi reached out to me! She said she and her boyfriend were hoping to get married this year! Here’s the quote from her email: “I am dating the man I have liked (and now love ;)) since I was 15 years old.” The big day FINALLY came, and I was so honored to photograph these high school sweethearts and their Denver wedding.
When it came to pictures, Austin’s only request was one of him grabbing Mackensi’s booty! 😉 I laughed out loud when I heard that one! That photo definitely made the gallery. Keep scrolling until you find it! 😉
I absolutely loved the way Mackensi and Austin worshipped in their ceremony. Their love for the Lord, each other, and for their families was so evident throughout the day. Speaking of their families, their reception was SO much fun. Mackensi and her dad had such a fun father-daughter dance. They started out with a traditional slow dance, and then popped out choreographed moves halfway through it. Turns out the family gets their love of dancing from their dad. Mackensi’s 10 siblings made sure the dance floor was always poppin’! Mackensi and Austin actually had a morning wedding, so they danced the rest of the day away!
The Oaks at Palm Creek is new Denver wedding venue located in Castle Rock, CO. This gorgeous wedding venue is already booking up like CRAZY (check out the pictures, you’ll understand why!). If you are booking a Denver wedding, I would definitely look into it. The venue is close to the airport, making it perfect for out of town friends and family to come, but also has the gorgeous mountains surrounding it!
Mackensi and Austin are just SOOO sweet together! You can just tell how in love these two are when they look at each other. And the most beautiful part– their love story is only beginning as they start their married life together.
