Coming down from an epic wedding weekend, please forgive me, this is going to be a bit of a ramble. What can I say, I’m just not the type of girl to turn down a good dance floor…. or an open bar. Or an afterparty. However, I am riding the love high strong and steady.
Love is just the best you guys!
And who better to make us fall in love with Denver than husband and wife photography team Kathryn + Perry Bacalis of Our Love Is Loud @ourloveisloud Not a job to be taken lightly, this amazing power couple are pros at creating beautiful tangible memories of love and happiness and moments that you want to remember forever. And guessing, some solid make out sessions too.
A city where the “the small business community is tight” and “there is always something new happening”, so I think they’re going to have lots of awesome places for us.
"It’s that town where dreams become reality."

KATHRYN + PERRY BACALIS @ourloveisloud
Hi guys! Kathryn and Perry here of @ourloveisloud. Man, we’re so excited to show you around our little city this week! One thing we love most about Denver is the strength and support that can be found in the small business community here right now. As small business owners ourselves, we can attest to this first hand. This really is a city where dreams can become a reality. We’ve seen it happen. So we wanted to kickstart this new chapter on @withthelocals by showcasing one local small business we love! Sub Rosa Mercantile @subrosadnvr is located in the trendy Sunnyside neighborhood of Denver. Featuring goods from craftsmen and makers around the US, Sub Rosa is that perfect one stop gift shop kind of place for guys and gals alike. I mean they have beard oil, campfire candles, and witty cards by @mountainvsplains. What more could you ask for! To make things even better this is one hip shop that won’t leave you with that pretentious hipster aftertaste in your mouth. Instead owner Madeleine will make you feel right at home. She’ll probably even ask you your name and make you want to stay and hang out all day.

Kathryn with @ourloveisloud here again! Today I want to introduce you to one of our new favorite spots in Denver called The Souce! @thesourcedenver is Denver's first artisanal food market housed in a landmark building from the 1800s and featuring 13 incredible vendors and one hot bar in the center! It's that perfect spot to wine and dine your out of town guests or to grab a bottle of wine and lowers for a girls night. Promise to share more photos inside!

Hello again! Kathryn of @ourloveisloud here. Head into @thesourcedenver and you will find THE BEST buttery, flaky croissants in all of Denver (I’m talking the been to Paris once and now all other pastries just don’t cut it kind of good!) at Babette’s. Then head over to the Boxcar Coffee cart to be wowed with some beautiful latte art by Connor! @boxcarcoffeeroasters
Hey all! Kathryn & Perry of @ourloveisloud again - taking you downtown today to catch a look at a classic Denver landmark that's recently been given new life @denverunionstation! Inside you'll find a large cocktail/ dining lounge, a hotel, bookstore, mercantile, some awesome restaurants, and much more. If your feeling spontaneous, you can even jump on the Zephyr train which runs from Chicago to the Bay Area!

Perry here today (for the other half of @ourloveisloud) bringing you one of my top spots in Denver, my barbershop! :) @theusualbabershop is the best spot in town for a proper traditional cut and shave. Stop in when you're in town. You won't regret it!
(at The Usual)
Hi friends! Anyone else need an afternoon pick me up!? Kathryn of @ourloveisloud here again - been staring at Mr. iMac for about 5 hours straight banging out some editing before hitting another wedding this weekend. All I can think about right now are Renee's Nutmeg Old Fashioned doughnuts!! Like I literally can't get them off my mind! Renee is the owner and founder of my favorite food truck in Denver called Bakin' Bakery! She recently launched her business through Kickstarter and has quite the loyal bacon loving following already! If you ask her what @bakin_bakery is all about, she will floor you with her answer. You will soon realize that her business is her heart and soul. Her calling! She's a true inspiration and her unique creations never disappoint! Find her on Instagram and Facebook to see where she's parked next!!
Kathryn of @ourloveisloud here. Sitting in the airport this morning about to head out to shoot a wedding weekend in Kentucky and the place I feel I have to share with you all today is a place that is very special to Perry and I. It's not in Denver, but sitting just 45 mins outside the city, it's a MUST SEE for any Denver visitor. Nestled in the historic ghost town of Silverplume is a magical place called, The Bread Bar. This is one place I promise to share more than one photo of! Trust me you will want it! The Bread Bar is the production factory and tasting room for Dram Apothecary. "The building was once home to a mining supply shop and then a bakery for nearly 40 years, hence the large BREAD sign which we didn't have the heart to take down (the letters were hand cut!)." says owner Shae Whitney. Give @dramapothecary a follow to keep up with events and seasonal open hours
One flight down! One more to go. During this little layover, I think I'll post another pic of The Bread Bar, cause I know you want to see more! ;) Here's a look at the actual bar where Shae of @dramapothecary slings her famous cocktails and hot toddies.
Perry here again with @ourloveisloud. Wanted to send out another recommendation today for the men. Best place to find great attire (awesome jeans!) here in Denver is Steadbrook. Additionally, it's the perfect spot to meet some rad people and sip on a legit cappuccino. If you're in the area, this is a must visit! Follow them at @steadbrook.
