Wedding Picture Preview: Jessica & Eric at The Franciscan

Updated: Jun 8


Jessica & Eric recently got married at the The Franciscan Event Center in Centennial, CO. Other then a few drops during family pictures we got really lucky that the weather stayed clear & beautiful for their wedding day. We have had so much rain this summer I feel like I’m back home in wet New Orleans….well without the 100% humidity thankfully. I loved Jessica’s simple yet stylish wedding dress & the bright colors she chose for the bouquets looked perfect with her dress and the modern black bridesmaid dresses. Their wedding was full of friends, family, and LOTS of kids! These kids loved the dance floor & kept the non-dancing guests quite entertained from their chairs. Other then the great music, I think the mirrors surrounding the dance floors truly entranced the kids. Some photographers may get freaked out by so many mirrors, but personally I love the challenge & all the cool shots I can get with the help of a mirror. Take a look at some of the reception shots I got below, I especially love the bouquet toss shot where I captured Jessica’s reaction to her friend’s catch in the mirror. It was certainly a fun entertaining wedding to be a part of, and I know the guests loved the venue too. So much in fact that a couple people jumped in the Franciscan’s pond fully clothed! I happened to overhear these girls plans, which I didn’t think they were serious about, but I secretly followed them outside just in case, and sure enough they jumped right in the water! Play the slideshow below to catch that picture. From a vendor’s perspective the Franciscan was an amazing place to work. They have the venue set-up perfectly for weddings and the service was extremely helpful & friendly…unfortunately not always the case at all venues.  I also have to give props to Jeff with DJ on Demand for his excellent MC skills & for keeping the dance floor packed. Also, amazing flowers by Kimball Floral & delicious cake by Mulberries. And of course thank you to Jessica & Eric for putting together a fabulous wedding & for trusting me to document it all.
