Shadi & Jonathan met in junior high school. I think my favorite part of their wedding day was during the maid of honor’s toast. She busted out a notebook that her and Shadi shared in junior high and proceeded to read an entry where Shadi wrote about how cute she thought Jonathan was. That was many years ago and they never actually dated until years later when fate brought them back together. Since then they’ve been inseparable, have shared in good times and bad and share a bond that runs deep. You can see it in the way they look at one another, like they share a secret that know one else will ever know.
In August they tied the knot at Larkspur Restaurant at the base of the slopes in Vail. It was a spectacular day full of love and laughter. Below are just a few of my favorite shots from their Vail wedding…
Shadi’s dad seeing her in her dress for the first time.
Shadi & her bridesmaids were not only super stylish…
…but also had a hilarious sense of humor.
We FINALLY got to work with Cori Cook, one of Colorado’s best floral designers. Not only is she super talented but a very cool person that I hope to work with much more often!
The Gore Range served as a stunning backdrop to the ceremony.
Jonathan released butterflies in a very emotional tribute to his mother who lost her battle with cancer less than two years ago.
The inside of Larkspur restaurant is elegant and intimate. We look forward to going back!
