Cate and Dawei had a beautiful wedding at Highlands Ranch Mansion in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. After officially meeting them in-person for the first time a few days earlier, I was so excited to be a part of their wedding day! I knew just from our minimal interaction, that these two were going to have an awesome wedding!
The Highlands Ranch Mansion has a gorgeous bridal suite for getting ready. With original decor, this classy venue will make you and your bridal party feel like royalty!
If for some reason the weather doesn’t permit going outside for your bridal portraits, there are plenty of places within the Highlands Ranch Mansion for photos. We took Cate’s photos in the hallway just outside of her bridal suite.
Of course, if the weather is good, the grounds at Highlands Ranch Mansion are amazing! Dawei took his groomsmen photos on the front lawn of the ranch and Cate took her bridesmaid photos on the balcony. No matter where you go outside, you’re bound to get some fantastic scenery!
Cate is from Colorado, but some of Dawei’s family flew all the way from China to be with them on their big day! How special is that?? And how cool is it that MY photos will be seen on the other side of the world?!? It was also super neat for Dawei’s family to experience an American wedding. And they had a LOT of fun!
After the ceremony, we took formal family photos just behind the cocktail hour space before taking the couple and their wedding party for more photos on the front lawn.
The dance floor was full all night with party-goers celebrating their friends. Lightsabers, glow sticks, and Chinese lamps brought the party to an epic end. All and all I’d say it was was a really gosh darn wonderful wedding at Highlands Ranch Mansion!
