I love September. I love the feeling of change, the anticipation of all things autumn. Could there be a better time to get married in this lovely state of Colorado? (I really don’t think so). Shaheed and Megan said “I do” at Willow Ridge Manor surrounded by flowing red rocks and mountain views.
But before we get into the details of their day, let’s talk about how it all began! You may remember from their Golden Gate Canyon engagement session that Shaheed and Megan have been together for nearly a decade. Originally from Iowa and now happy Coloradans, the two love to travel and actually got engaged on a trip to New Zealand.
Their family and many friends came from all over the states to share in their day, which was filled with touching details: a henna tattoo as a nod to Shaheed’s family’s traditions, Megan’s grandfather’s handkerchief around her bouquet, and a sweet note for her dad before walking down the aisle. The groomsmen also sported some super cool cat tie clips. 😉
And if you know Shaheed and Megan, you know their wedding day would not have been complete without their pups walking down the aisle and sharing in the photographs, too.
I’m honestly not sure if I’ve photographed a couple that laughs together as much as Shaheed and Megan do. I kid you not, they are laughing in 90% of their photos together. Their joy and love for each other is absolutely infectious. They’ve built a love that will last.
Shaheed and Megan, it was a complete honor to get to photograph your wedding day. Justin and I are grateful to have met you, and we pray that these images bring smiles to your faces for many, many years to come.
