Wishing a Happy 1st Anniversary to Natasha and Erik!
This was going to be a quick anniversary post but after browsing through Natasha and Erik’s beautiful photos it’s impossible to share just one. Natasha was absolutely stunning and her effortless beauty was reflected in every detail of the day.
At the very first meeting Natasha and Erik described hosting a laid back weekend for family and friends to come together to share big meals and enjoy the beauty of their beloved Colorado Rockies …with a wedding in there somewhere. With it’s charming cabins, countless outdoor activities and spectacular views, Devil’s Thumb Ranch was the obvious backdrop for their weekend celebration. And thanks to a fabulous team of favorite vendors and talented friends it was a true success.
We are so proud to have been a part of Natasha and Erik’s special day…and we look forward to browsing their amazing photos year after year after year.
Wishing Lauren and Brad a happy first anniversary! One year ago, on July 12th, Lauren and Brad were the first couple married at the new High Lonesome Lodge at Devils Thumb Ranch, exchanging vows under the gorgeous Colorado skies. The two tastefully incorporated their passion throughout the weekend by adding cannabis into elements of decor and floral design. Complete with a hookah lounge and slow motion photo booth, this wedding was curated exclusively to fit the vision of Lauren and Brad. We are so happy to have played a role in their day, and as always, can’t thank our incredible vendors enough for working together to throw a great party. Below are just a few beautiful images from the lovely Ali Vagnini.
Happiest anniversary to Olivia and Daniel! Olivia and Daniel are celebrating their 2nd anniversary this week and looking back at their wedding brings back such wonderful memories. We have enjoyed keeping in touch with them and watching them become parents to a sweet little boy! Congratulations you two! We love you!
I’d thought I’d offer a last farewell to Winter 2015 by sharing these beautiful images from Geri and Mike’s winter wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
From our very first meeting I knew that Geri and Mike’s wedding would be nothing short of amazing. The vision was clear. To plan a weekend for friends and family to experience everything Geri and Mike love so much about Colorado. The vacation would be topped off with a Sunday afternoon wedding backdropped by snow-capped mountains followed by a party that would keep everyone dancing late into the night. Mission accomplished!
Geri and Mike picked Devil’s Thumb Ranch because its simple elegance was the perfect match for their vision. It also offered all of their favorite winter activities along with a spa, cozy lodging, and multiple dining options all in one place. On top of that it was Valentine’s Day weekend. Hints of love were dotted around the ranch in the form of rustic little hearts and clusters of red roses. Romance was in the air…along with fluffy snow flakes that required a little extra warmth from your sweetie.
Please enjoy these amazing photos from Rachael Grace Photography. As you can see, the only thing competing with the breathtaking scenery was Geri herself. She was (and is) absolutely gorgeous in every way. Geri and Mike, thank you for letting me be a part of such a special day.
Lauren + Brian’s sweet Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding
Here’s another beauty at one of our favorite venues, Devil’s Thumb Ranch. Lauren and Brian’s wedding epitomized everything we love about weddings at DTR – unbeatable views, beautiful spaces, and a radiant couple. The afternoon storm clouds parted just in time for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony followed by a lovely reception in the Board Axe Barn. The natural beauty of the barn was enhanced with inspired lighting, elegant flowers and an abundance of love! What’s more, Lauren and Brian’s splendid day culminated with touching toasts and one epic dance party! Thank you thank you to the team who made it happen: Devil’s Thumb Ranch | Plum Sage Flowers | Nate and Jenny | LMD Productions | Event Rents | Side Door Salon | Ribbons and Strings | DJ Jahsonic
Lauren + Tom’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch Family Affair
We have a special place in our hearts for Lauren + Tom, a lovely couple who wed at the High Lonesome Lodge at Devil’s Thumb Ranch late last summer. When the storm clouds came minutes before the ceremony, Lauren + Tom made the calm and delicate decision to move it inside, trusting us through each step of the way. Just as the couple sealed the ceremony with a kiss, the sun came out and their family and friends celebrated in the gorgeous Colorado sunset. We loved Lauren’s tenacity to plan a wedding while engaged in intense academia. We loved Tom’s goofiness throughout the night – making his genuine and compelling reaction at the first look so romantic and truthful. We loved the strong sense of family this couple brought to the wedding. When Lauren’s brother heartbreakingly couldn’t attend due to active duty, friends and family Skyped him in during the ceremony and played a recorded speech during the reception There was even a paper cut out of him that people loved!
It was very evident how much Tom loved Lauren and Lauren loved Tom. We were honored to be part of one of the biggest days in their lives, in one of the most beautiful places in Colorado. As always, we pay every compliment under the sun to our talented team of vendors. Without the team effort, we would have nothing. We love you!
Romantic Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding: Nicole + Alex
Nicole and Alex live in Illinois and had guests coming from all ends of the country to celebrate their wedding. They wanted a weekend-long celebration that included both the great outdoors and posh lodging, and amenities for their guests. Devil’s Thumb Ranch, tucked away in Tabernash, Colorado was the perfect venue to bring everyone together and proved to be the perfect backdrop for this fabulous fete.
Nicole trusted us from the get-go and allowed us to plan the overall look and feel of the wedding, while staying true to her unique vision. While the wood barn was essentially a blank canvas for the couple’s reception, we softened the space with a giant chandelier and some soft drape attached to the wood pillars. Paired with feminine florals and soft lighting, the masculine wood barn transformed into a gorgeous, fancy affair for all of the jet-setting crowd.
Jennifer + Matt’s Snowy Devil’s Thumb Ranch Wedding
Jennifer and Matt are that special Colorado couple that go together like bread and butter.
They had always envisioned a wintry wonderland wedding and a wintry wonderland is what they got….with some snow to spare. The bride and groom spent the morning of their wedding snowboarding together, hours before they walked down the aisle.
The skies opened up and guests were able to enjoy the view and breathtaking surroundings during the ceremony and cocktail hour at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, before moving into the beautiful Broad Axe Barn for dinner. The fire crackled, the drinks were poured, and the couple celebrated their love into the wee hours with a packed dance floor!
