Like so many couples these days, Carlee and KC decided that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them. Instead, they planned an intimate colorado microwedding to celebrate their marriage with only their closest friends and family.
Carlee & KC are among the few couples I meet these days that actually met the ‘ole fashion way – in-person!! They met at the dog park and KC’s first line to Carlee was, “cute dog.” Although Carlee thought KC must have a girlfriend after seeing his dog’s floral bandana, she still looked forward to running into him and chatting anytime she and her Aussiedoodle, Trevi, were at the park. She’d eventually find out that KC actually didn’t have a girlfriend, just impeccable dog-style. Thank goodness, because she knew he was husband material!
I was lucky enough to not only capture their Colorado microwedding, but also their playful, fall engagement session at Mount Falcon – all as an associate photographer for the amazing Claire Hunt Photography.

Carlee & KC decided to go the non-traditional route and host their Colorado microwedding at a modern cabin tucked away in the forrest just outside of Colorado Springs. They invited their closest friends and family to witness their marriage on the deck of The Lofthouse, followed by an intimate, candle-lit dinner full of good food and endless laughter.
The Lofthouse is a sleek, Scandinavian-inspired cabin that is available for rent via Airbnb. The lower level was the perfect light-soaked space for Carlee & KC to spend the morning getting ready for their wedding, while the upstairs loft is adorned with high, vaulted ceilings and is truly a blank canvas – perfect for their intimate wedding reception!
Just like Carlee + KC, their wedding day was relaxed and full of sweet personality. After they were finished getting ready, Carlee met KC outside on the deck for their first look and private vow exchange. Carlee was the most stunning bride and KC knew it! Thankfully, plenty of tissue was on hand for these two. One of my favorite parts of their entire Colorado microwedding day was during this time. When they couldn’t decide who would read their vows first, they decided to settle the debate with a good ‘ole fashion game of rock-paper-scissors!! So fun!
After their ceremony on the upper deck of The Lofthouse, Carlee and KC joined their guests for an intimate cocktail hour and reception. The single table was adorned with soft, romantic touches – a creamy muslin runner, bright florals in bud vases, hand-made menus, and blush-colored muslin napkins. The large sliding glass doors were left open to let in the cool, late-September breeze and it truly felt like their guests were dining al fresco!

Carlee & KC didn’t bat an eye when I asked if they wanted to run out for some golden hour portraits, which only confirmed my love for them. We snuck out to the golden field right outside of The Lofthouse and were blown away by what a gorgeous night we had!!
