Hudson Gardens wedding in Littleton, Colorado
Katie and Dave
Hudson Gardens
Littleton, Colorado
June 20, 2009

On Saturday I photographed the wedding of a fellow wedding photographer! Katie runs Kathleen Rose Photography, so it was a huge honor for her to choose me to be their photographer. You might remember Katie and Dave’s engagement portraits from last fall. They have always been a lot of fun to photograph, with a playful sense of humor and lots of enthusiasm. I learned on Saturday that their families are just as much fun as they are.

Beautiful wedding photography Charlotte and Steve! Love all the details she had.

Debi Tipton

you are correct, my mistake! X and Z and J used on triple letter scores, too!!!

(who knows wtf you can spell with those letters, but i’m sure they managed it!)

Triple Word???

Should be a Triple Word PLUS a “Bingo” (using all seven of your tiles in the same turn)!

Fifty bonus points for this couple!!

Those were amazing!!! Beautiful pics, beautiful night.

Such a wonderful day it was….Charlotte you were the best!! πŸ™‚
