Evergreen Lake House wedding venue near Denver

Christy + Miguel’s Evergreen Lake House Wedding

There’s something extra special to me about morning weddings, and Christy and Miguel’s Evergreen Lake House wedding was no exception. They wanted to start early to have more time to celebrate with everyone throughout the day! And I really love that. Plus brunch food and mimosa bars are perfect for weddings!

The Evergreen Lake House (venue website) has the most charming mountain log cabin feel, even if it’s only half an hour drive away from downtown Denver! Even better, the ceremony site overlooks the lake and is framed by mountain views. I’m so excited any time I get to shoot by water here in Colorado, since everything is usually so dry. (Although you should know that you will probably have paddleboarders and kayakers passing behind the ceremony in summer months.)

The bride and groom got ready for their Evergreen Lake House wedding separately, before meeting on the boardwalk for their first look. I loved seeing Miguel in those final moments before Christy tapped his shoulder. The anticipation is always so sweet, and I love when couples choose to share this moment in private before the ceremony. Especially with morning weddings, first looks also means we get to do the bride & groom portraits and wedding party photos before the ceremony, which is ideal to avoid that harsh noon lighting.

Christy and Miguel added so many personalized touches to their big day. Like having Christy’s father officiate the ceremony, and when Miguel used a fire truck to lure the ring bearer down the aisle. Christy’s grandmother did a reading of a love poem, and the couple also chose to do a unity sand ceremony together. After the ceremony, their guests enjoyed a mimosa bar on the deck, before heading inside for brunch. After brunch Christy shared a dance with her father, before finally getting her first dance with her new husband.
