Farm to table inspired Crested Butte Ranch wedding
Thursday, July 10
What do you get when you combine a fun, adventurous couple, friends and family who adore them, a stunning mountain backdrop, bluebird skies, a private ranch, a multi-coursed meal, great wines, immaculate details and a raucous 80’s band. You get the perfect combination for an outdoor Colorado mountain wedding!
Jenn has been on the periphery of groups of friends for years and she used to work at same mountain biking non-profit as my husband. Jenn may not remember, but she tried to set me up with my now husband a few months before we actually started dating. I met Jenn at a coffee shop after she and Stuart got together and she mentioned that she might be in need of our wedding planning services soon. After hearing they were engaged, I was elated that she had finally found the one. Jenn is someone I’ve always admired. She is hardworking, smart, and very well respected in her line of work. She’s also an uber athlete and has a wonderful eye for design and detail.
It was incredible to see Jenn & Stuart’s vision and hard work come to fruition this past June for their wedding. During the planning they were clear they wanted an outdoor spot where friends and family could enjoy the Colorado they have come to know and love. They settled on Crested Butte, where they had spent many weekends mountain biking; and after a series of site visits settled on a friend of a friends private ranch as the setting. Although the ranch was mostly outdoors and therefore fairly rustic, Jenn’s vision for the style was very clear – she wanted a farm-to-table experience that was modern yet relaxed. Great food, good wine and details down to the homemade bread, Himalayan salt, linen napkins, and full table settings were paramount. They even featured a spiked hot chocolate bar and late night snacks in adorable diner baskets.
Their friends rallied and worked tirelessly for them to help put together hundreds of pots of flowers, to transport rentals and wedding cakes from Boulder and help deliver a vintage airstream trailer for the bridal getting ready area. A friend even designed and printed all their stationery!
The entire weekend, from their rehearsal dinner at Maxwell’s in downtown Crested Butte to their Sunday morning meeting at Camp 4 coffee was a true reflection of Jenn & Stuart. Everyone who attended the wedding got a full experience of who this couple really is and what is most important to them. We are honored to have been a part of their day and hope the wedding was everything they wanted and more! Congratulations Jenn + Stuart!
