A Wedding at Vallecito by Durango Wedding Photographers

Lauren and Brenden live in the state of Kansas.  Brenden grew up in Bayfield CO (which is near Vallecito), but Lauren had never been here.  Naturally she wants to move here some day because as we all know, CO is much prettier than KS (sorry Kansas).

Their wedding took place at the Vallecito Recreation Center, which is just outside of Durango CO.  It was a little windy that day and the wooden arch behind them blew over.  We had to find some big rocks to hold it down, which worked.  We sure didn’t want that falling over on them during the ceremony.  Tedda Bachman was the wonderful minister who presided over the wedding ceremony.

As you can see from the images, Lauren is expecting her 3rd child.  The tiniest flower girl and the young bridesmaid belong to them – I don’t know if she’s having another girl or a boy this time.  I doubt they care either way.

We did a First Look session with Lauren and her dad.  While I was standing outside with her dad waiting for Lauren, he got a little teary and was telling me that he is just so happy to be able to see his daughter get married.  He had recently had a heart attack and they didn’t expect him to make it.  Then I got teary and am doing it again while I write this story.  It’s hard to take photographs when your eyes are watery.

I designed a beautiful album that contained all of their wedding images and Lauren wrote to me that she had received the album and was beyond happy.  They now have a gorgeous Wedding Story Album to relive their time here in Colorado and it’s also a family heirloom.

Enjoy!
