Whit and Alexis
The Oxford Hotel
January 19, 2008
Alexis and Whit got married Saturday with a fabulously stylish and contemporary celebration. The ceremony and reception took place at the Oxford Hotel in lower downtown Denver, just a block away from Union Station. The entire event was beautifully decorated with personal touches, and I totally loved the urban feel to all of it. Congratulations, Alexis and Whit!
My friend Brad Walters shot this wedding with me. Thanks, Brad!
We arrived early, as the reception hall was being decorated by the fabulous Stacy Pisani of Alexan Events.
The room even had yellow uplighting to add a golden glow.

Meanwhile, Alexis was getting ready in her hotel suite.
Whit was a in good mood, aided by his fun groomsmen!
I was psyched when they wanted photos in the alley.
I went back up to the ladies’ suite, and found the makeup artist playing with the adorable flowergirls.
Alexis took a moment to breathe before heading downstairs.
We stepped outside for portraits, and a gust of wind made Alexis and her mom laugh.
I love the way that sunlight bounces all over the place in the city.
Alexis’ dad was excited for the ceremony. I loved his smile.
The candlelight ceremony took place in the Oxford Hotel’s Theater Room.
I like looking at everyone’s faces in this photo, especially Whit’s parents and grandmothers on the left. His mom was crying.

The newlyweds celebrated in the middle of the street. As you all know, I love twilight!
After the group portraits, Alexis and Whit cuddled in the cool hotel lobby for some pictures.
Then we headed to the hotel bar to play with its funky red lights.
Alexis and Whit had choreographed an adorable and hilarious first dance.
I love the look on his face in this one.
The tables were named after animals that Whit and Alexis had known and loved.
It was an emotional moment when Alexis’ sister and mother saw the photo of their beloved, deceased cat on their table.
While the guests were eating, coordinator Stacy Pisani transformed the hallway into a great lounge area.
There were lots of adorable kids!
Instead of a cake, they had a dessert buffet that disappeared rapidly.
What a fun night!
