Bride: Bridgett | Groom: Jastesh
Date: August 1, 2015 | Location: The Wildlife Experience, Parker


Bridgett and Jay are a very lucky couple. Following an extended celebration for their traditional Indian wedding (See Pt. 1 here), they got to get married yet again with a modern, chic American-style wedding. But for every bit that the two celebrations contrasted, the joyous mood remained the same. Bridgett, this time in gleaming white, drew an emotional response from her father during their first look and a teary-eyed Jay at the altar. The attire may have been more subdued in color on this day but the decor was still gloriously rich in hue. This time on the cool side of the spectrum, the jewel toned purple and abundant flowers set the tone for even more celebration. Though it appears as if the kids were celebrated out.

From the Photographers:

Wearing earrings picked out by her groom and her second wedding dress in two days, Bridgett walked down the aisle at the Wildlife Experience in Parker, CO, for their American ceremony. Even at the tail end of an event-packed week, Bridgett and Jay couldn’t help but radiate happiness as they exchanged vows in front of the fountain. After formal photos and dinner, the party got down to both top 40 hits and Hindi songs courtesy of Mike from Dancin’ Shoes DJ. Despite a few of the younger guests zonking out from the week’s festivities, the guests partied into the night and carried the celebratory energy all the way through Bridgett and Jay’s sparkler sendoff.

Styled Shoot: PACE Center Wedding

PACE Center wedding in Parker Colorado, Silver Sparrow Photography

While out and about in Parker one day, I happened to pass the PACE Center. The moment I laid eyes upon the unique facade, I knew it would be a cool venue. I added it to my check list of things to look into and that was, unfortunately, the end of that. But alas, what to my venue-hungry inbox should appear? A styled shoot showcasing this very venue and a happy little family…dear…

The PACE Center was designed in the early 2010’s. The site’s history as a railway heavily influenced the materials and design of the arts complex. Rusted iron and track designs can be found throughout this modern space. The spiral shaped mosaic artwork that serves as a backdrop to the couple’s portraits was intended as an homage to the blending of history and art. (“Nucleus” by Tim Upham) The elements of the wedding are a great artistic statement for the location as well. A painterly landscape, sleek furniture, and a porcelain-faced child make you feel as though you’ve crossed centuries of imagery. Hand-crafted paper flowers show an artistic take on nature’s own design and, like any good art, cause you to study them in more detail to appreciate the illusion. The culinary vendors created a minimalist cake to follow colorful modern art hors d’oeuvres.  The bride’s gown is both a testament to visual artistry in its intricate detail and the performing arts in it’s silhouette. Finally, I chose to highlight the photographic style of the shoot by book-ending the album with dramatic black and white portraits of the bride and groom.
