Fall Romance in the Mountains | Wedding Recap | Katie + Stevie
Wednesday, January 25
We are so thrilled to share a deeper look into the last Calluna wedding of the 2022 Wedding Season – Katie & Stevie’s fall nuptials at the one and only Devil’s Thumb Ranch! Katie is originally from San Antonio, Texas and has a deep affinity for horses and so when they moved to Colorado and got engaged – they knew right away that the atmosphere of Devil’s Thumb Ranch was the perfect place to say I Do!
When Katie and Stevie picked this weekend – they were hoping for the perfect blend of Colorado blue skies and changing autumn aspen trees and they got their wish! We kicked off the weekend with a western welcome party complete with BBQ, refreshing Ranch Water to sip on, and live music from local musician Notes by Nate.
For the palette of the wedding, we really wanted to lean into the fall tones that were surrounding the ranch that weekend. We partnered with Amy Lauren Floral Design to bring that vision to life! Subtle pops of blush pinks and apricot oranges woven with climbing greenery, the florals captured the magic of fall in the mountains!
Perhaps one of our favorite parts of the weekend were all the incredible paper goods by Knapp Design Co. We started off with an incredible western luxe invitation suite. It was such a fun way to give guests a glimpse into the weekend, with lots of fun textures, especially the velvet belly band with galloping horses being our most adored design element! We knew we wanted horses to be a focal point of the weekend so we created a custom escort display with velvet letter pressed paper tied to mini horseshoes for a delightful surprise for guests to find their seats! This display is one of our all time favorites and perfectly tied into the leather bar menu displaying the couples signature cocktails!
After dinner, the couple’s dear friends and family made the most incredible round of toasts to the newlyweds, followed by a special family song that has been in the bride’s family for generations – it was such a fun personal touch led by her cousin and musician Josh Klause. There was certainly not a dry eye in the crowd! Soon thereafter, everyone hit the dance floor where The Get Down had the dance floor packed all night long. It was truly the perfect way to end our 2022 wedding season!
