“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .” 
― C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Friendship and family don't always seem to be synonymous words, do they? Not true with the Wardle family. They seem to be a group of humans who would actually hang out even if they hadn't been physically and spiritually bonded together in a family. That's pretty stinking cool. These guys give me so many dreams of what I want in a family one day. I love their closeness, their silliness, and most of all the way that they all truly embrace one-another's unique qualities. Thank you all so much for spending your afternoon with me waiting out storms and gawking at bugs. I look forward to more adventures with you guys!

Never did believe
In what I couldn’t see
Long before I knew
Darling I was made for you

Took a train downtown
Gave us time to talk about
The things that we could do
Darling I was made for you
Oh I was made for you

(chorus) Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Darling I was made for you

Any other guy
That made you say goodbye
Must’ve been a fool
But darling I was made for you

There’s not much that I know
Been searching high and low
The one thing that is true
Darling I as made for you
Oh I was made for you

(chorus)

With your smile illuminating
Save my heart that needed saving
No way I could be mistaken
Darling I was made for you

There’s not much that I know
Been searching high and low
The one thing that is true
Darling I as made for you
Oh I was made for you

(chorus)

Oh I was made for you
Darling I was made for you
Oh I was made for you

"Made for You" song lyrics by Alexander Cardinale / Ellen Marie Wilcox / Morgan Taylor Reid

Oh YAY! So so so excited to share these photos! Holly was a bridesmaid in one of my FAVORITE weddings five years ago (Natalie and Ryan). Thanks to social media, we were able to stay in touch and now it's Holly's turn. I know that Holly and Stefan are going to have such a great wedding day - it'll feel like forever until July! It was really great to get to spend an evening with these two, drinking beers at Finley's Pub where they had their first date, going for a walk at Wash Park, a local hang out spot for them, then getting all dressed up for the city and wrapping it up on a rooftop in RiNo! So epic! I love how comfortable they are are together while still having that newly-together little spark. Stefan is HILARIOUS and I only included a couple of the silly outtakes so he doesn't punch me ;), but I loved the way he was able to make Holly laugh and keep having a good time even when we all started to get just a little bit hangry! Thank you guys so much for letting me be a part of your wedding adventures! 

Alix + Matt | Blanc Denver Wedding Photos

I never feel a thing is real
When I'm away from you
Out of your embrace
The world's a temporary parking place

A bubble for a minute
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it

Say, it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

I am so very excited to get to share my very first published "Jo Julia Photography" wedding! Thank your Alix and Matt for putting up with a few of my quirks while in the midst of getting my site launched. It means so much to me that you trusted me before everything was all official and junk! It has been so super cool to get to be a part of your wedding. I love how mature yet FUN your love is, and I know that you have what it takes to take this all the freakin' way.

I believe the pictures speak for themselves, so I won't rant on about the amazing details and things that you can already see that were SO AWESOME, but I will say that every vendor that Alix and Matt (and Jackie :) ) chose were truly the dream team. This is one of those weddings that you wish you were a guest at. Fun food stations and an Ice Cream TRUCK in the courtyard? I mean come on, is this for real?! Tommy and I had such a great time with you guys and I am so excited to watch your marriage unfold. Not in the creepy way. Like, in the "I'm totally going to like all of your moments on Facebook" way. Oh, is that creepy? Whatevs. It means I like you and I know you're going to be awesome at husband and wife! xo Jo
