Blythe & Justin's Wedding Downtown

Blythe & Justin were married at the Holy Ghost Catholic Church on September 13th. Prior to the ceremony we met Blythe and her bridesmaids at Civic Center Park. Little did I know that there was a huge festival going on there in honor of Mexico's Independence Day that following week. I'm usually pretty good about checking everything out beforehand but for some reason I didn't this time- won't make that mistake again sorry girls. They were good sports about it though and we walked around to the other area of the park and got some great pictures.

During the ceremony there were a few things different than the traditional Catholic ceremony. Justin's family is Jewish so they combined both a Catholic and Jewish ceremony together. It was the first time I had the opportunity to witness Jewish wedding traditions- they definitely have a lot of cool traditions! Following the service it was getting dark really fast but luckily we were downtown so there were enough lights to get a few cool shots with Blythe and Justin before we headed to the Brown Palace for their reception.

At the reception they had a live band by the name of Jump Start (one of the bands under Pro Entertainment). Oh my gosh- they were so awesome! If you are looking for a band for your wedding they are THE band! Blythe and Justin crashed a lot of weddings to find these guys:-) Here is just a snapshot of their day. Blythe was sure she was going to fall out of the chair when they lifted her up but she made it through.
