The ceremony was held on the lawn with the beautiful mountains in the background!  The location just couldn’t be beat in our opinions! The highlight was the wonderful weather we had that day.

Inspired by Nature

Elizabeth & Parker | June 29th | Grand Lake, Colorado

From the bride:
We absolutely love the outdoors and that was a priority of ours- finding a venue that reflected that desire, as well as displayed the grandeur of Jesus. The town of Grand Lake is so quaint and there is so much at your fingertips for your guests to experience.

With the grandeur of Rocky Mountain National Park and Grand Lake encompassing us, our wedding ceremony took place outdoors. There was such a lovely feeling of rustic elegance in our natural surroundings.

The flowers were a spectacular assortment of ivory, coral and eucalyptus green combined with the contrast of birch bark and aspen branches.

Fall in the Mountains at Devil’s Thumb Ranch

Carole & Jeff  |  October 5th  |  Devil’s Thumb Ranch {more info | website}

From the bride:
We moved to Colorado last year and immediately knew that wanted to have a mountain wedding. We fell in love with the scenery and the facilities at Devil’s Thumb Ranch and thought it would be a good welcome for our friends and family to the Colorado mountains.

We created a wedding reflective of our personalities – maintaining a formal wedding feel while incorporating naturalistic and rustic elements. We chose a color palette of midnight blue with fall colors (burgundy, orange, and yellow).

We hoped to have the ceremony outdoors, but an early fall cold front and snow storm moved us indoors to the Timber House. Brinton Studios 0115 Brinton Studios 0116

 We did a wine box ceremony where we wrote letters to one another and had our parents write letters to us with their most important pieces of marital advice.  We sealed the letters in a wine box with a bottle of wine by nailing the wine box shut, to open in celebration of 5yrs of marriage.

With such a beautiful barn and backdrop, we didn’t really feel like we needed a ton of decorations.  We hung a chandelier and lanterns from the barn beams.  We had a mix of tall and short floral centerpieces — tall vases with eucalyptus leaves to mimic aspens and short vases wrapped in birch bark.

The most memorable moment of the night was our first dance (rumba) to Queen, “You’re my Best Friend.”

My advice: Enjoy the process and remember it is supposed to be fun!  No one else will notice if things don’t turn out 100% the way you wanted them to.
