Drake and Kayleigh
Oh goodness. Where do I begin? This wedding in Castle Rock, CO was held at Cielo at Castle Pines and I loved all of the things. Definitely one of my favorite Denver Wedding venues now!
I should start by saying how much I adore Drake and Kayleigh. They are the sweetest couple, ever. Seriously, look at this!! On my questionnaire I ask my couples to share a little story about how they met in their own words, and this is the cuteness they sent me:
“Call it destiny, or call it being lazy, but somehow Drake had pushed off taking a freshman-level English class until his junior year of college. Kayleigh, in just her second semester of college, sat down on the far left row of desks; just two seats to the left of him. And there they sat for four months. Never daring to speak to one another, but always sharing glances. The following school year, both Kayleigh and Drake felt called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to nations abroad. As Kayleigh casually was scrolling through her email, her friend pointed out the new message in her inbox about the late-added member of her missions team to Fiji. Her friend knew of the secret crush, and couldn’t keep in what she saw. Kayleigh shrieked out of excitement. Meanwhile, across campus, Drake had been scrolling through his Facebook feed, and came across Kayleigh’s status declaring that she was a part of the team he had just joined. His heart raced, and he smiled joyfully. Over the next few months, they sat next to each other at many meeting. Again, not speaking to each other, but still sharing the same glances. As the trip began, they spent their days serving the Lord’s people in Lautoka, Fiji, and their nights growing closer through rich conversation and encouragement in Christ. Drake would spend his days leading Bible study in the local prison, while Kayleigh would tutor remedial students at Lautoka Primary School. They both admired their love for others, and how they shared Christ to those they were serving. By the end of the trip, they both knew without any doubt how they felt. They would not say it to one another, but they would still share those same glances. She returned to Las Vegas, and he to Denver. Both of them felt as if they had missed their chance. But they both trusted the Lord and His perfect plan. Four months had passed. Kayleigh had begun her junior year, but Drake had graduated. They both still had feelings for one another, but would not say it aloud. Which is why it took a text from Drake to spark the romance. And it all began with the magical words: “Do you want to get pizza?” Without hesitation, she said yes.”
Pizza is also the way to my heart, that’s true love <3
They really made my job easy throughout the entire process. Photography is very important to them and they made sure to take the extra steps to make everything beautiful AND relaxed on their wedding day. There are some really key things that they did here that Id like to point out for everyone planning their own wedding!
I hope every couple planning a wedding can read this and make sure to apply whats important to them as well. It really makes a world of a difference on how you enjoy your wedding day, and also how your memories will forever be preserved. I know Kayleigh and Drake will cherish their wedding day photos!
Thank you both again for letting me be a part of your special day!
