We’ll never tire of reiterating how lucky we are to get to know the couples we capture, but every once in awhile, an out of this world love story comes along that not only knocks us off our feet, but also humbles us to be a part of it! Qwist and Cara’s 12 years in the making love story was just that and we’ll probably never, ever get over it.
Qwist and Cara met over a decade ago in Fort Collins, Colorado while attending an outdoor Common concert. They hit it off instantly when Qwist noticed Cara standing behind him and offered her a better view. They’ve been together ever since those first tender moments and Qwist proposed to Cara in the exact same spot they first met (followed by their families racing out with champagne to celebrate) *cue all the happy tears*.
These two had a heartfelt, genuine, downright beautiful wedding at our most favorite venue in town, Los Poblanos. Simplicity and minimalism not only ruled Qwist and Cara’s special day, but it allowed for their tender love story to shine through. From having Qwist’s grandmothers walk down the aisle as flower girls, to their group sing along of “Lean on Me” during the ceremony (never seen anything like that before, and it moved us to our core), to both the bride and groom including each sets of their parents during the mother/son and father/daughter dances, we can’t help but continually gush about how wildly special it was to witness this June wedding. Qwist and Cara share a love so tangible that it brings joy to everyone around them, thank you babes for letting us be a tiny part of this incredible love story!
