Canyon Wind Cellars Wedding Photography – Amy + Tom

Meet Amy and Tom. These two love wine tasting, road tripping, cooking together, traveling, working out and in general just spending as much time together as possible. They had a small, intimate and absolutely amazing Palisade Wedding at the Canyon Wind Cellars this past May.

I first met Amy and Tom at the location of their first date, Pino’s in Littleton. I’d never been there, so I was super excited to try out their wine selection and see what all the fuss was about. We talked about wine, health and Amy’s adorable daughter (Oh.. you have no idea how adorable she is. Wait for it). I knew immediately that we were a great fit for me and was so excited when they picked me as their wedding photographer!

When I asked Amy what she loved most about Tom she said “Tom is my very best friend. From our first date, it was obvious that we had amazing chemistry and our minds work in the same way – we were inseparable and finishing each other’s sentences very early on! We not only share the same values and priorities, but we share the same interests and sense of humor as well – we crack each other up regularly. I love his commitment to treating me and my daughter well, I love that his easygoing and fun nature is backboned by considerable strength of character – and an Irish temper! He shows the same commitment and support in all aspects of his life – his service in the Navy, his work as a nurse, to his family, to Charlotte, and to me. It’s support that I am ever grateful for!”

When I asked Tom what he loved most about Amy he said “The way she looks at me and I see into her eyes that I am the one for her and she is the one for me. She makes me feel without a doubt I am where I am supposed to be, doing what i was born to do, and that is take the best care of her and her daughter that I possibly can.”
