      Emma and Kyle
      Air Force Academy
      Colorado Springs
      July 3, 2010

      Emma and Kyle got married Saturday with a Catholic ceremony at the Air Force Academy chapel, and then a grand reception at the Broadmoor’s Lakeside Terrace. Emma and Kyle met while students at the Academy, and her father is also an Academy alumnus. The wedding was a great way to honor their families’ Air Force heritage, while also showcasing Colorado’s scenery and luxury. It was also a fantastic dance party!Emma and Kyle, I hope you’re having a great time in St. Lucia!

      They ended the night with an incredible dessert buffet, with mousse, cheesecake, chocolates, and a coffee bar.

      Charlotte, you’re still my favourite photographer, you take some incredibly beautiful pictures. Emma and Kyle chose amazing locations, so stunning! And a dessert buffet? Sounds perfect for my own day!

      Beautiful job Charlotte! Amazing photos!

      What a wonderful job covering this wedding at the Air Force Academy. Simple beautiful photography. They will cherish these photos forever.

      To Charlotte from grandmother of groom: You and your assistant did such a marvelous job with the photos. You must have one terrific camera (or two), but your talent is really exhibited in these photos. Don’t know how I can narrow my choice to just a few to purchase! What a visual treat!

      hahaha w/ the dad’s shirt

      Charlotte,
      You are a true professional! I was blown away by your “eye” for the right shot. You “herded cats” throughout the event yet you never interfered with what we were doing. I’m also impressed how long you stayed and you didn’t leave until you checked with us to insure the moments were captured. I’d fly with you anytime!

      I love the photo of her in tears with her father.

      Gorgeous pictures. What a beautiful bride!

      My parents were in town this past week, and I had to go visit the chapel while we were down in the Springs because I saw how beautiful it is in your photos. Let me say, it’s really cool, but you make it prettier than real life. 😀

      Beautiful photos! The one with the rosary is cool– so elegantly contemplative.

      And ha ha! Glad to see pictures of the “space-ship chapel” (I keep calling it that, albeit it in fondness) again.

      I love the cake toppers, too. Imaginative, and very, very cute!

      oh man, I want that dessert buffet and coffee bar!

      Amazing!!!

      Charlotte, these are the most gorgeous wedding photos I have ever seen!

      That portrait on the steps is breathtaking!
