Susannah & Ivan's Wedding (Part I)     12.02.2009


You may want to grab a cup of coffee and kick back! I couldn't help making this an unusually long post. If you were not there for this memorable day, my hope is that you will feel that you were. And if there, that you would relive and savor it again and again. What a privilege it was to tell Susannah and Ivan's story.

All the lovely flowers (except for bride's bouquet) were arranged by our mutual dear friend, Emily.



See the happy bee? :)

Ivan and Susannah opted to see each other before the ceremony. It was emotional and beautiful. I remained at a distance, documenting their lovely moment, then tiptoed away....

I grabbed the image on the left just in time. As Susi gathered family for posed shots, Ivan walked over to Mercedes who was busily looking over the fence. When Ivan asked her what she was doing, she chirped, "Looking for ladybugs". Apparently, he had joined her hunt when I turned around and "CLICK".

Right around the corner from the historic church where the wedding was held, was a barn, rolls of hay and a corn field! I felt like a kid in a candy shop! Steve and I, Ivan and Susannah drove around chasing the sun as it slipped away. It was a wonder-full afternoon. 

That evening, a very special six course dinner was served at the Black Cat in Boulder. It was, by far, one of the best meals I've ever had (and I LOVE good food). The evening was intimate, fun and basically perfect.

Amy, each picture is so beautiful and you captured the intimacy of each moment exquisitly! I must say the bride is really very lovely! Ivan seems to think so too! They are just the cutest couple!! I feel like I was there, and when they are in a picture laughing, I start laughing with them. I know I am biased, being your mother, but I think many of the pictures could be on the cover of a bride magazine!!

Amy - these are so incredible - I am so proud of you! I still have one of the first pictures you took of Madison when you got your first digital SLR (her on the slip and slide) - wow you've come a long way. I just wish Merl and I could go back 17 years and get married again and have you do the wedding! You guys are truly amazing - God has blessed you in so many ways artistically - I can't wait to see the success you have with your business in the future.....Love you all....
