Brooks and Michelle had a beautiful military wedding at the Air Force Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs. Brooks is an Air Force Academy graduate and, although they hadn’t originally planned on a military wedding, it was the perfect choice. Her brother, a Marine, walked her down the isle and it was such a special moment. This was our first opportunity to officially photograph a “Chapel” wedding and it was awesome. It offers such dramatic backgrounds and the best architecture to incorporate into shots. It didn’t hurt that we also had the most adorable couple to photograph! Brooks and Michelle are seriously too cute together.
Their reception was a great party, with entertainment led by Randy Rodriguez. What can be better than a dance-off, a Photo Booth, karaoke, and saber cake-cutting? How about your wedding photographer in a bow tie! Brooks and his groomsmen (all in uniform) decided Jason was required to change out of his tie and wear a bow tie for the reception. They actually went and bought him one on base! He looked very snazzy… a little like a waiter, but it was so fun.
In closing, it is such an honor to photograph the brave men and women who serve our country. Thank you for your service.
