La Foret Wedding in Colorado Springs || Chelsea and Andy
I was very excited but also nervous when Chelsea and Andy hired me for their La Foret Wedding. Chelsea and Andy are both talented artists. Chelsea is a phenomenal actress and her natural charisma showed throughout their wedding day. Andy is also a wedding videographer. While I felt honored to be hired by another videographer, I also felt a bit terrified. However, I focused on the reminder that these artists chose me because they trusted in my work and I knew I would do a good job for them.
The Wedding Venue La Foret
La foret wedding venue is nestled in the blackforest area of Colorado Springs, Colorad. The La foret wedding venue, typically a conference center, transforms beautifully for their marrying couples.
The guys and gals were each able to get ready in some of the on-site cabins. This provided a rustic and homey feel as each prepared for their day.
We choose a romantic wooded area for their first look. The wedding venue was just now starting to see their trees turn for fall colors. It was the perfect backdrop for their first look.
The field with the surrounding trees provided an intimate magical cocoon as Chelsea and Andy said their vows. My favorite part was when Chelsea walked down the long wooded path to meet her groom. This was one of the most emotional and romantic bridal entrance I have seen.During the ceremony, the couple exchanged their vows and commitment to each other. They also read several pieces from various artists, poets and singer songwriters.
As we were doing portraits, the sun was setting and casting a beautiful bow of light around the couple. I was so thrilled to capture this light for Andy and Chelsea!
The Reception Hall
One of the things I loved about this wedding venue was the proximity of the ceremony to the reception hall. Therefore, the guests were able to enter into the reception hall in just a short walk and then await for the entrance of Chelsea and Andy.
Chelsea and her mom in law planned and organized this entire wedding herself. Thankfully, I was able to take some time out of the morning to get some of the details of her mom decorating it all. It was beautifully done.
The reception was a lot of fun. The reception hall was the perfect size for this wedding, with plenty of room for dancing and guests. The toasts were filled with laughter and tears. And the dancing was full of celebration.
If you are planning a La foret wedding, please reach out! I’d be honored to create you a magical wedding film! Also check out Andy and Chelsea’s choice photographer, Ashley Weaver. She was so talented and a joy to work with!!
