The Maven Hotel Wedding | Denver Photographer

Hey friend! I am so excited you’re here! Thanks for checking out my blog! For those of you who are new around here, I’m Katie, your Denver photographer. Open communication is a top priority for me when working with couples. I ensure my brides and grooms feel well taken care of from our very first meeting to the delivery of their custom wedding album and beyond.

An Alley Way Wedding at The Maven Hotel

Mitch and Ellen’s wedding at The Maven Hotel in Denver, CO in May truly pushed my creative boundaries as we predominantly captured moments in the vibrant Downtown Denver RiNo district! While some areas exuded classiness and others showcased a grunge vibe, near Denver Union Station, we embraced the elegant wedding ambiance, resulting in an absolutely amazing experience.

Getting Ready at The Maven Hotel

I first met up with Ellen at The Maven Hotel the afternoon of their big day. Her mom and best friend were there helping her get ready as I snapped some details of her dress and the hotel room. The Maven definitely has some artsy spots even inside the room itself!

First Look and Portraits at Denver Union Station

After Ellen was finished, I went and grabbed Mitch to set him up for the first look inside Denver Union Station (you do need to request a permit to shoot inside, but overall it was an easy process). It was such a sweet moment and plenty of guests in Union Station wished them a happy wedding day.

Right outside of Denver Union Station we took a few photos with the wedding party and portraits of just Ellen and Mitch before we headed off for the ceremony.

Ceremony at The Maven Hotel

The ceremony was of course beautiful and the officiant spoke with such grace and truth about the importance of marriage.

As per usual wedding flow, portraits with family and friends happened next. We glided through all the family portraits quickly and with so much ease (and enthusiasm! Seriously, their families were a dream!). Next up was cocktail hour at Blanchard Family Wines. I was so tempted to try some wine, but I don’t normally drink at weddings. haha.

Reception at The Maven Hotel

Next up, reception! The first dances were all beautiful, toasts were awesome, and the dinner served was delish!

All in all, it was truly a perfect day!

Mitch and Ellen, I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your next big adventure. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Your joy is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many decades of love and happiness!
