Becky and Jer
Estes Park, Colorado
September 20, 2007
Jer and Becky have such a sweet story. They have known each other since they were kids, and they recently reunited after many years apart. They soon realized that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They got married last Thursday in a small, outdoor ceremony at Rocky Mountain National Park. Becky’s daughter Andrea, and Mike and I were the only guests. It was the smallest wedding we’d ever photographed, and we loved how personal and intimate the whole day was. Becky and Jer will have a larger wedding next September with their families and friends. I love the idea of having two weddings, one small and intimate, and one large and festive.
EDIT: I just found out that today is Becky’s birthday! Happy birthday, Becky!
They got ready at the YMCA of the Rockies. I’d never been to a YMCA before, and it was fun!

Andrea and I had a blast last year during her senior portrait session.
They got married under some trees in the park, with a view of Longs Peak behind them.

I got to be a witness! I’d never done that before.
After the ceremony, we headed to the YMCA stables to visit the horses.
I turned around and saw this sweet moment between mother and daughter.
In lieu of wedding cake, Jer and Becky chose ice cream! We went to an ice cream parlor in downtown Estes.
Congratulations, Becky and Jer! Thanks so much for inviting Mike and me to join the three of you that day!
