Anthony and Amanda – Denver Church Wedding
Photography by Mathew Irving Written by Ariel Irving
We were very excited about this wedding – and a bit nervous. The excitement and nerves came from one very adorable and very important fact; Amanda and Anthony were saving their first kiss for the altar. As wedding photographers, we felt very honored that we were chosen to capture this cherished moment. That is where the excitement came in… we knew it would be beautifully touching. On the other hand, we felt added pressure to get that perfect first kiss shot. Of course, we always focus on capturing every special moment at a wedding, and that bit of nerves serves us well. But this time, the pressure was on! The kiss was the kiss! Our excitement only grew when we arrived at this Denver church wedding. We were absolutely astounded at the beauty of the sanctuary. The stained glass, statues, and lighting features were breathtaking. We knew this would be the perfect setting for Amanda and Anthony’s first kiss.
As Amanda slipped into her gown and tied her gray converse (chosen to match her gray beaded bridal belt), Anthony and the guys played foosball just on the other side of the majestic sanctuary… all of who were wearing converse of course. Once everyone was properly primped and all converse laces were tied into neat bows, Anthony and Amanda took a moment to pray together – separated only by a wooden door. This was one of the most beautiful moments of the entire day. There wasn’t a dry eye on either side of the door.
And then, it was finally time. It was time for the wedding ceremony and ultimately the kiss. And everything went off without a hitch. The ceremony was beautiful and the stained glass was the perfect backdrop. The kiss was heartwarming and we clicked away, yielding pictures almost as beautiful as the moment we were capturing. The bridal party even got to sit on the church steps and show off their fancy footwear! Anthony and Amanda’s church ceremony epitomized wedding photography. Colorado was luck to host such a sweet wedding and we were the lucky photographers who got to document their very first kiss and then many many other kisses as well.
