Amy & Joe |  April 13th  |  Devil’s Thumb Ranch

From the bride, Amy:
We wanted a wedding destination where everyone could come and stay for a few days and be together.  Devil’s Thumb Ranch was the perfect fit. The ranch has something for everyone: outdoor activities, a relaxing spa and great food.

Our inspiration for our celebration was the beautiful Colorado landscape with New York City in our hearts. As a surprise, I sewed a heart on Joe’s tie that said I Love You.

My most memorable moment was our first look.  We were both a little nervous during the morning, but we both relaxed once we were able to see each other.  At that moment, we both said “I feel so much better now” and I just reaffirmed that no matter what with everything going on that day is really was just the two of us.

The ceremony was short and sweet, but incredibly memorable. The whole thing last about 8 minutes!

My advice:  Try not to argue too much during the process of planning a wedding. And during the wedding, take a few steps back to hit pause and take note of what is happening.
