I actually met Janelle and Jake in 2016 at their friend’s wedding. Jake was the best man and Janelle was his hot date. I have photos of them dancing together and you could tell even then that they were deeply in love. So I was completely and utterly delighted when they reached out to me regarding their 2019 wedding at Arrowhead Golf Club in Littleton, Colorado.
You may have seen their amazing engagement session at Red Rocks Park (and if you haven’t here is a handy dandy link: https://swingphotocolorado.com/janelle-and-jake-red-rocks-engagement-session-colorado-wedding-photographer/ ). They looked so good amongst those red rock formations and since Arrowhead Golf Club has a similar look, I knew we were also going to get killer wedding images!
Sure enough, the rain came right as we were starting the first look photos. But Janelle and Jake were both troopers (and I quote) told me they “wouldn’t melt” (which I LOVE!), so we continued on making gorgeous photos in the rain! Umbrellas up during the ceremony kept guests dry while Janelle and Jake had the ceremony THEY WANTED (in front of the amazing red rocks!) and it was MAGNIFICENT!
The guests started the reception by doing the wave (like you do at sporting events!) around the tables as they waited for the bride and groom to enter. I knew right then that this crowd was going to pack the dance floor and boy did they! It helped that Cameron with DJ Connection kept the party going all night long (a good DJ is important!).
I ended the night by taking Janelle and Jake outside for one more photo (and a breath of fresh air!). Jake told me he loved me and I went home knowing I have the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD!
