Ali and Doug were married on May 14th, 2010 at Lionscrest. The day was planned out and everyone was set for an amazingly wonderful Spring outdoor ceremony. Unfortunately, Colorado is known to throw weather curve balls this time of year. We all worked together to make a quick change for the indoor ceremony and thanks to the hard work of all of the vendors still pulled off an amazing and unique intimate indoor ceremony set of with the bright colors chosen by Ali.
With a break or two in the clouds Benjamin with Alive Studios was able to sneak the couple and bridal party outside for those coveted Colorado mountain photos. There is nothing like an overcast day that helps to bring out the brightest and most vibrant hues in flowers, nature and yes even people.
The colors and flowers selected by the couple and brought to life by European Flower Shop were a true representation of not only their love for life but for each other. As you can see from the photos even Mother Nature could not keep this group from having a great time!
Congrats to Ali and Doug. May every day of your life together be as vibrant an passion filled as your wedding day!

A note from Benjamin...
Ali and Doug have been amazing to work with from the engagement adventure shoot through to the wee hours of the wedding night! Ali had a very clear idea of the style she wanted for her wedding images. Alive Studios provided the perfect mix of photo journalistic adventure and classic wedding photography.
The engagement shoot set the stage for an amazing photographic experience at their wedding. Plans were set, family shot lists set up, and the day promised to be one big party. Ali had opted to wait till after the ceremony to see Doug, and we had planned on doing romantic shots up above Lionscrest and then family pictures outside in the lush landscapes surrounding Lionscrest Manor. Ah, but the powers that be decided to bless us with thunderstorms and so the fun began. Ali showed up and met quickly with Benjamin of Alive Studios to figure out how to get the pictures they had planned, even with the rain. We quickly switched our plan and created a beautiful moment for Ali to see Doug before the ceremony, and before the rain!
Lionscrest did amazing work and moved everything inside while we got as many images of Ali, Doug and the wedding party before the sky opened up and the rain fell. A cozy inside ceremony followed and then Alive Studios faced the challenge of getting amazing family photographers even with the rainy weather. With the help of the Lionscrest staff, we moved a few tables, opened up the double French doors and used the lush wet background to capture all our photographs while everyone stood under the awning… A photo booth by Booth 66added to the fun, and as you can see from these pictures, the reception ROCKED!
