Hillside Gardens and Event Center wedding venue is located on the west side of Colorado Springs. This wedding venue is surrounded by romantic landscape beauty and stunning Colorado mountain views! My bride and groom, Kelly and Carter, fell in love with the mountain views this wedding venue provided them during their wedding ceremony! They knew after visiting, that this was where they wanted to celebrate their love with their friends and family!
On the day of Kelly and Carter’s wedding, the ceremony site at Hillside Gardens Colorado Springs provided a stunning backdrop of lush gardens and beautiful scenic views of the Colorado mountains! As Kelly started to walk down the aisle, I remember that Carter had the biggest grin on his face! He could not stop smiling at his gorgeous bride making her way down the aisle to him! Their wedding ceremony had it’s own unique romance and charm, which I absolutely loved. I remember as Kelly reached her Groom at the end of the aisle, before her father handed her off to him, Kelly and her father exchanged this adorable hand shake that they have shared together throughout her years of childhood! It was the cutest moment to be able to witness as their Colorado Springs Wedding Photographer!
After the wedding ceremony, it was time for the celebration at the wedding reception! Hillside Gardens Colorado Springs reception area provides more greenery landscape and canopy of twinkling lights for when it got dark! Kelly and Carter shared their first dance and a private last dance, under the beautiful twinkling lights at Hillside Gardens. I remember the dance floor was packed all night long during the night of Kelly and Carter’s wedding. It was so special to see all their loved ones their to celebrate with them out on the dance floor!
A particular moment I will never forget, is that during their wedding send off, I remember Kelly and Carter took the time to go back through the line and hug each person individually! They wanted to give each person there a personal thank you for traveling to come celebrate their marriage with them! I remember crying behind my camera because of how special this moment was!
Lastly, I would love to end this wedding blog post, with the sweetest and most thoughtful review I received from the Bride and Groom: “Whitney is incredibly kind, personable, and extremely hard working. She has such a positive attitude, pays very close attention to detail, and is so creative. She captured our wedding day exactly the way we had hoped for, and the final gallery is absolutely gorgeous! The photos have allowed us to relive our special day over and over. Whitney is so easy to work with, she is clear, and organized in communication. She really listens to client’s wants and needs. We loved how she captured so many moments at our wedding that we didn’t even notice and now get to see afterwards! We are so grateful for Whitney and her amazing work, and will absolutely treasure these photos forever!”
Thank you so much Kelly and Carter, for trusting in me to capture these timeless and romantic moments on your wedding day for you all to be able to look back on and cherish forever! I felt so honored that you had chosen me as your wedding photographer! I loved being a part of your wedding day at Hillside Gardens Colorado Springs!
