Cielo at Castle Pines Wedding | Caleb and Brenda Boll | Colorado Wedding Photographers

It’s always an honor to be a part of someone’s wedding day. We get to play an intimate role that we don’t take lightly. When our cousin, Brenda, and her husband Caleb asked if we would prefer to shoot their wedding day or be a guest, we immediately opted to shoot! There’s the obvious reason, of course: we love shooting! And then there’s the not so obvious reason, which we explained to Brenda and Caleb. As photographers, we play one of the closest and most personal positions on your wedding day. We spend all day with you, your friends, and your family as you get ready. We take car rides with you to your first look, take part in the intimate moment of you seeing each other for the first time, watch as you say your vows, and sweep you away throughout the night for photos. We seriously love this role and would be super bummed if we had only spent a fraction of the time with these two on their wedding day! We’re so thankful to have been a part of this truly wonderful day with family and friends! Thank you two so much for having us be there with you.

Mike and Tay

• How did the two of you meet? “We met on! #matchmade”

• Caleb, how did you propose? “With Brenda being a teacher, I collaborated with Brenda’s principal to set up a few tables in the auditorium at her school. On those tables were pictures and paragraphs describing a moment in our relationship that I fell in love with her even more. I had our songs going on in the back ground as well as rose pedals and lights guiding the way towards a hidden space where I was waiting for her on one knee. I then poured out my heart and asked her to spend the rest of her life with me.”

• Tell us about your first look! Having done it, would you do it again? “Absolutely! I was skeptical at first because I am one to always go for tradition but I am SO glad we did. Mike and Tay picked out an absolutely breathtaking spot in Daniel’s Park for us (Loved not having to plan that out, too!) We loved getting to spend the one-on-one time together before the craziness kicked in and it was such a special moment just to ourselves. Doing the first look took away the nerves so that when I walked down the aisle to him, it was all excitement!”

• How did you guys choose Cielo for your wedding venue? “We looked at so many wedding venues that they all started to blur together! The second we walked into Cielo we were completely blown away. The grand staircase, the open floor plan, the waterfall, the gazebo… How could you NOT fall in love? While an outdoor ceremony was very important to us, we live in CO where the weather can be quite unpredictable, so a beautiful “Plan B” was a priority on our list. The fact that they have those beautiful sliding glass doors was just the cherry on top of an already perfect venue.”

• What was the most fun part of wedding planning for you? “The most fun part was the designing (and browsing pinterest!) Picking out the colors, the girl’s dresses, flowers just made it all seem “real” and helped create a picture in my head.”

• What was your most memorable moment from your wedding day? “Our vows! Hands down.”

• If you could pick one word to describe your wedding ceremony, what would it be? “Personal.”

• What advice do you have for couples planning their wedding now? “Enjoy it and don’t sweat the small stuff. If something goes wrong, you’ll likely be the only one to notice. The day goes by SO quickly so stop and take the time to soak it all in. Oh, and hire Mike and Tay! They are absolutely incredible on the day of! They can get through so many pictures in such a short amount of time and my whole wedding party just raved about how wonderfully friendly and organized they were!”

• What inspired you to sing to your bride, Caleb? “This has always been a vision and dream of mine to honor my wife by singing to her. I believe I came up with the idea from an old movie I saw that inspired me to do this. Other than that, I couldn’t come up with a more romantic way to pour out my love to her. I chose the song “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur because it described the love and promises I had for Brenda.”

• Are you going on a honeymoon? “We took our honeymoon to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for 6 days! It was an amazing time for just the two of us to decompress and we are so glad that we left the day after.”

• What are you most looking forward to in marriage? “Just having my PIC (Partner In Crime haha) and beginning our adventure together. I look forward to coming home to each other everyday and all the ups and downs that life has to throw at us.”
