Keystone Ranch Wedding ~ Katy & Aaron

september fall autumn keystone ranch rustic colorado mountain wedding

I’ve got the most amazing clients – I know I say that all the time, but only because it’s true :) And working with Katy & Aaron has been an absolute dream. They are such wonderful people – sweet and fun, natural and down-to-earth. They love to travel, and they love the outdoors. Their wedding day at Keystone Ranch was a perfect reflection of them – heartfelt and emotional, and full of love and warmth.  A few favorites..

Arrowhead Golf Club Wedding ~ Emily & Ingram

arrowhead golf club wedding littleton colorado bride groomWith a backdrop of spectacular rock formations and breathtaking views, Emily & Ingram tied the knot at Arrowhead Golf Club. Emily and Ingram are wonderful – they laugh easily and are so much fun to work with. And their wedding was absolute perfection: romantic and elegant with a vintage sensibility (pretty and pink with feathers and crystals and all sorts of gorgeousness, including a vintage DeSoto utility vehicle to transport the bride and bridesmaids (a sneak peek of which was featured here on the Colorado Wedding Photographer blog), and later a vintage Bentley(I think?) as their getaway car). I love how they personalized their wedding, incorporating their love of travel into the theme of the decor (passport invitations, compasses as escort cards, tables named after places they’ve traveled)  Some faves..

Torie & Matt tied the knot on a gorgeous September day during an emotional and heartfelt wedding ceremony at Keystone Ranch. It was a day surrounded by family and friends, full of love  and joy and infectious laughter. Simply perfect. Everything about this day was dreamy – from the incredible couple (so down-to-earth and fun to work with) to the spectacular Colorado mountain backdrop (ah-mazing views) to the vintage elements incorporated in to the wedding decor (burlap accents and cobalt blue, vintage suitcases and birdcages – ♥). It was an incredible event, coordinated to perfection by Josh at Bella Design and Planning, and such an honor to be a part of. A few faves..
