Penny and David
Air Force Academy Chapel and Cheyenne Mountain Resort
August 5, 2006
We had so much fun at Penny and David’s wedding yesterday that I woke up early today, excited to see the pictures. You know you love your job when you’d rather work than sleep in on a Sunday morning.
Penny and David live in Las Vegas, and planned their wedding here in the Springs, where David went to college. The ceremony took place at his alma mater, the Air Force Academy. The Academy chapel is one of my favorite places to photograph, due to its vivid colors and incredible architecture.
The reception took place at Cheyenne Mountain Resort, with some of the most creative and touching tributes to friends and family that we’ve seen. The whole event was heartfelt, unique, and downright fun. It was a joy to be a part of it.
Congratulations to a wonderful couple, Penny and David!
August in Colorado Springs is marked by these beautiful yellow wildflowers.

We started the day with David and the guys at the Fort Carson golf course. Here David
completes his last hole — in the second photo, the ball is halfway in the hole!
Next we headed to the salon, where Penny was getting her hair
done in one of the most elegant styles I’ve seen.
Her niece looks on.
Then we headed to the hotel, where David and the groomsmen were getting ready.
I like this picture of David’s AFA class ring and cuff links.
At the Academy, the guys used their officer status to get us inside the cadets’ area for some photos. They were all classmates at the Academy, and have remained close friends.

The Chapel is amazing. My camera loves it.

Their ballroom at Cheyenne Mountain Resort was beautifully decorated.
