Sometimes life give you a second chance at love (I would say 3rd or 4th, but if you need that many chances, you are not seeing it right in front of you). Stan was just newly widowed and Franciene was single for more than 20 years. The two of them are so incredibly grateful for each other. Life is better when you have someone to share it with.
I have been photographing weddings for 20 years, so getting a chance to photograph a wedding of a retired couple was a real treat. I am happy these two found each other and that they choose me to document their time with family here in Steamboat Springs. The held a fun rehearsal dinner out at Saddleback Ranch and married at Holy Name Catholic church down town. A beautiful lunch catered by Steamboat Meat and Seafood follow at the Botanic Park. It was perfect.
