Corky and Mike met on a blind date set up by a friend. He’s a ski instructor at Vail Resorts, she’s a kindergarten teacher at Vail Christian Academy–and the rest is history. From the beginning, they knew they wanted to incorporate design elements that would reflect their life together in Vail.

An Elegant Ranch Wedding in Colorado

The guest book was a pair of antique skis that guests got to sign.

The tables were named after Corky and Mike’s favorite ski runs on Vail Mountain.

Corky had her great grandparents’ handmade wedding dolls placed on the back of their loveseat.

From the couple: We visited all the popular venues in the Aspen area, but started feeling a little discouraged because nothing really matched our vision until we visited Flying Dog Ranch.  As soon as we walked onto the property, it was love at first site. Lydia gave us a tour and we kept looking at each other thinking, this is going to be way outside our budget. We were shocked to hear it was half the cost of the other venues we had seen, and we committed on the spot to having the wedding there!

From the bouquet to the linens, we are absolutely loving this berry infused color palette!  Designers Rami Carter with Pick Me Weddings and Cheri Taunton with Southern Charm Weddings and Events created an elegant upscale feel in a rustic barn on Strawberry Creek Ranch, a working equestrian center and ranch in Colorado. Photographer Sarah Roshan captured all the pretty details including the beautiful mountain setting.
