A Magical Colorado Ranch Wedding

Kate & Justin  | June 11th

From the bride: We met in 6th grade and started dating our senior year in high school. Justin proposed on Christmas Eve, in the presence of both of their families. Our families are incredibly important to both of us, and we wanted them with us during this really special moment. We knew we wanted to be married outside in a mountain setting with a rustic elegance style with classic details. We chose a color palette of blush pink, navy blue, ivory and white.

We wanted to do something special and personal for our guest book. My mom and I picked out fabric squares and put together a combination of patterns. We grabbed a fabric safe pen and asked our guests to sign on the squares. We are making a quilt out of the signed squares so we can always feel wrapped up in love and support of our favorite people looking back on our wedding day.

A Winter Ranch Wedding in Colorado

From the bride, Sage:
Ira and I love Colorado and we very much enjoy the mountains! We are both Colorado natives, I grew up outside of Durango and Ira grew up in Colorado Springs. We both love the snow and all the magic that comes along with Colorado winters. We wanted to have a wedding that was not only beautiful, but memorable and magical.


Every detail was arranged with such care and perfection, which is exactly who I am.  ELC02

We had the ceremony outside.  It had snowed for 4 days prior to our wedding, so the snow was fresh and plentiful. 

ELC03 As our guests arrived, they were greeted with hot cider and hand + toe warmers.  ELC05 ELC06I am a horse fanatic, and it has always been a dream of mine to ride in on a horse.  A black horse, of course, with my beautiful white dress draped over his back.  When I met with Devil’s Thumb Ranch and expressed this dream, there was no hesitation!  My dream came true, I rode Bo, a gigantic black Percheron.  He was amazing!!!  I arrived at Devil’s Thumb Ranch days ahead of time, to make sure I had plenty of time to ride and get to know him before the big day.  The last thing I wanted was to be a run-a-way bride! 


The two older flower girls pulled a sled with our baby flower girl and ring bearer.  ELC09

The crowd gasped as I came around the corner on Bo.  It was very emotional.  

ELC08 The ceremony was short and sweet and full of love.

A 2 horse sleigh came and picked Ira and I up after the ceremony.  We headed out to celebrate the first few minutes of married life. Our guests enjoyed a live blue grass band, hand crafted cocktails, appetizers and sleigh rides!!

We had a surprise first dance that started out with a sweet love song, then broke into a super fun hip hop dance session then back to a sweet love song.  People were super impressed because Ira is not fond of dancing, but he was a really good sport.
