Matt and Ashley’s Glenmoor Country Club Wedding
Photography by Mathew Irving, Second Photographer Paulette Rae – Written by Ariel Irving
It is certainly fitting that we began our photography journey with Matt and Ashley in Denver’s Downtown Theater district. Their wedding was nothing short of theatrical! Matt and Ashley met while performing in a musical together and started their married lives in a musical of their own making. Luckily, this musical has a very happy ending!!!
The curtains opened as the couple began their day with a first look at The Glenmoor Country Club. The two were picture perfect as they revealed their attire for their big day and had that special moment of the bride and groom seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. The photography party then moved to DU’s campus for bridal party posed portraits. Much of the bridal party were also theater fanatics, and it showed. We had no trouble getting the group to live it up in front of the camera. The Bridesmaid’s periwinkle dresses played beautifully against the Groomsmen’s gray suites. There was no singing at this stop, but that cannot be said for much longer.
The couple’s next stop was Ashley’s childhood church. The warm loving feeling at the church was only amplified (pun intended) by the beautiful vocals of their children’s choir. Ashley walked down the isle to the angelic sounds as family and friends, and especially Matt watched her in awe. The ceremony, of course, was filled with the stuff that musical happy endings are made of.
Once we returned to the Glenmoor Country Club reception, where the Glee cast would be jealous of the newlyweds’ performance lineup. The stage was set for incredible vocal performances by a handful of the bride and groom’s impressively talented guests. The curtains closed on beautiful room surrounded by twinkle lights, smiling faces, and a Bride and Groom taking their first steps into married life, dancing the night away.
