Chelsey + Aaron Est. 2018

“A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up one each other.”

Chelsey + Aaron est 2018 (134 of 134)I had so much fun with this impromptu wedding. It was so simple and easy! Amber, one of Chelseys best friends reached out to me a few days before the wedding and asked if I was available to take pictures for Chelsey as a gift to her. I immediately checked my calendar and made it work! What a great gift to give someone! Chelsey had no idea I was going to be there. Monday morning I drove up to Denver and got there a little early so I was close enough to be at the courthouse when they got there.

As they walked up I hid “creepily” behind a tree near the entrance of the courthouse and started snapping pictures.


I guess Chelseys son, Layton, told her “that girl is taking pictures of us” and Chelsey told him “no honey she isn’t” as they walked up the stairs I put my camera down and reached out my hand and said “Hi Chelsey! I’m Mandy and I’m going to be your photographer today!” The look on her face was absolutely priceless. She had absolutely no idea I would be there so I think she was stunned!



We walked into the courthouse and we went up to where you get marriage licenses and sign all the documents needed. It only took about 20 minutes since the courthouse already had their license ready to be signed. They all signed it, turned it back in, and it was official!

I think this is one of my favorite pictures…Layton was able to sign as a witness to his Mom and Aaron’s marriage! How cool is that?

After the certificate was turned back in we went outside to capture some…pretty amazing shots of these two…you might have seen them on the sneak peek but if you didn’t…ENJOY!!!

This dip is by far one of the best ones EVER!!! Good job you two!

After the courthouse, Chelsey wanted to go down to the river in Golden…WOW! It is so beautiful there. There was a super cute small wooden house before we walked down to the water… so OBVIOUSLY we had to stop and get some pics…LOVE this background!

Just a boy and his mama! They were so stinking cute!

We walked down to the water and found a super cute place to take some pictures…it was SUPER busy but luckily there was a great shady spot for some fun pictures!

How much can you love someone? Just look at these two!


You can see how much Layton adores Aaron and how Aaron treats Layton as a son. The bond between them is so sweet and look at how handsome they both are!
