Ashley & Josh | Brookside Gardens Berthoud Colorado wedding

Ashley & Josh got married on a lovely August day at the beautiful Brookside Gardens located in Berthoud, Colorado.

Brookside Gardens is, as you might gather from the name, a great wedding venue for couples who like flower gardens.

There were SO many great images from Ashley & Josh’s wedding – but here are some highlights that I think they’ll be anxious to see!

Thank you to you both {and friends and family} for your patience with these since I was out of town for over a week recently. 

You can see a few of their engagement portraits by clicking this link.  Their entire wedding gallery will be posted online in a week.

barbel - OH my oh my. Love love those detail shots especially the shoes. What a great idea to have something written on the bottom. Super cute.

Carly - Josh and Ashley, You guys are my bestest friends in the whole world. Ash, you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen (even when you were freaking out right before and asking what the weird feeling was in your tummy). Josh, I think you are amazing, even though you made me cry. I love all of the shots. Especially the one of you two laying down and the one of the silhouette. I also like the one of the brides maids and the grooms men. I love you both so much and wish you a happy marriage.

Julie Terasas - Excellent photos! I love the details that were captured… shoes, the one of the dress standing up by itself. I love the the one of them silouetted too! I love the one of Josh grinning so mischieviously as he gets ready to go after the garter – Priceless! Several of them look like the photos that come in a new frame. They are beautiful people and beautiful photos! And of course I am not biased at all. :) Julie Terasas

Jayne and Jim Schindler - We love all the photos. Exquisitely done. As if Josh isn’t tall enuf already, love the one taken of him and the groomsmen from nearly ground level. Giants all! The entire wedding was magnificent and exuded pure class. Jayne’s an expert on making that observation, and says it’s the most perfect wedding we’ve ever attended, and we’ve attended a few in our time! Blessings to Ashley and Josh and your families.
