Jessica and Andrew were married on October 26, 2019. They are epic adventurers, and share a curiosity about the Universe and all that lies within it (and beyond). The Denver Museum of Nature and Science as their wedding venue was a natural choice for these two as they are both passionate about science -especially astronomy- which you’ll see the theme of stars as a central piece in their wedding.
There were so many special details for their wedding day that fit their personalities and interests. For example, Jessica dyed part of her hair blue for her ‘something blue’, which just added a hint of fun and eccentricity to her classic bridal style. They also chose wedding rings made out of unique materials: pieces of meteorite for her, and dinosaur bones for him.
As they two got married at the end of October, they were up against early sunset times than the summer gives us. So they opted to share a First Look before their ceremony. Every one of our couples who’s done a first look has absolutely loved the experience of being able to see each other, talk, laugh- and even just get most of the pictures done before hand, so they can enjoy the rest of the party with their friends.
This first look with Andrew and Jessica was one of my favorites, because we were able to set it up on the Sky Terrace at the museum which has the most incredible view of the Denver Skyline and Rocky Mountains. These photos up on the sky terrace really feel like Colorado even from their city location.
For their wedding ceremony, Andrew and Jessica tied the knot in the Gates Planetarium with the night sky painted all around them. Instead of a flower girl they had a ‘star girl’ who tossed glow in the dark stars down the aisle before Jessica walked down. They both shared a laugh during one another vows as they quickly realized they had many of the same words, metaphors, and promises without having seen what each other had shared.
After the sun set and the knot was tied, these two had parts of the museum like the Prehistoric Journey opened for them and their guests to explore throughout the evening. During cocktail hour were were able to photograph them with the dinosaurs, which made for the most unique and memorable wedding photos. They dined with their guests in the wildlife hall exhibit, then had an out of this world dance party in the Leprino Family Atrium which overlooks City Park!
We hope you are as inspired by Jessica and Andrew’s wedding as we were while capturing it for them. It’s so much fun to see the unique ways that couples can make their wedding represent all that they love most, and have so much fun while doing it. We won’t be forgetting this one anytime soon.
