Britt Moreno, the CBS Denver morning news anchor and her fiance, financial planner Jordan Curry, tied the knot on Saturday, December 2 at Austin Country Club. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple. The bride wore an elegant dress designed by Matthew Christopher which was purchased from The Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver. I'm not sure who designed Jordan's tux but he looked ever bit as magnificent as the bride.
Britt and her mother, Irma Moreno, did almost all of the event planning themselves. They selected navy and gold for the event colors and coordinated with specialty vendors to pull the room together with dramatic ceiling draping, special effect lighting, elegant table linens, fabulous flower arrangements and a black and white checkered dance floor. The ceremony was held under an open air Porte a Cochere providing security that the weather would not impact the ceremony - which it did not - and provided a beautiful vista of the Austin hills.
My favorite part of the day was THE FIRST LOOK. That is when Jordan was blindfolded and brought to see Britt prior to the ceremony. They enjoyed a few moments of privacy together to admire each other prior to taking pictures on the patio. Then, we jumped into a six passenger golf cart and headed to the 4th hole of the golf course for some additional pictures of the bride and groom in front of Lake Austin. One of the reasons I love this segment of the wedding is I get to see and photograph the couple's personal dynamics. In this case, I witnessed all pre-event nerves melt away and they beamed with love from that moment forward. This is always an indication of a good fit.
Britt might be a one time Dancing With The Stars celebrity but Jordan produced and choreographed a three minute dance that he and his groomsmen performed for the bride during the reception. What makes this even more impressive, Jordan had to email the dance instructions to his groomsmen because they did not live in Denver. It was an outstanding spectacle of talent and so much fun to watch.
NOTE TO SINGLES: This couple met at a Christmas charity party in which they were selling raffle tickets to raise money for underprivileged children. It just goes to show you that "doing good" can have a profoundly positive impact on others and potentially a little something special for you too.
Thank you Britt and Jordan for allowing me to be apart of your special day.
