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!

We are over the moon excited to be featuring one of our favorite weddings at Brush Creek Ranch today! Hampton + Michael first met on a blind date that his friends set up for him, while they were both living in London. The two instantly hit it off and five years later, Michael proposed to her in a gondola filled to the brim with gorgeous flowers in Sun Valley. To this day Hampton + Michael wait to get on the same gondola chair that he proposed in whenever they’re in town!
Hampton + Michael had always dreamt of an intimate destination wedding where their loved ones from near and far would gather to celebrate and they both fell in love with Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming for its glamorous western chic appeal. Over the course of the weekend, guests enjoyed a variety of fun activities such as horseback riding, archery, fishing, and more as well as a Western themed welcome party where they took turns riding the mechanical bull, an elegant candlelit rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar, and of course a beyond beautiful and memorable wedding day!
Bold colors danced through the bride + groom’s wedding day, with the ceremony + reception dripping in lilac and dusty blue florals with pops of pamplemousse and buttercup citrus tones and greenery created by The Perfect Petal. Florals kissed the aisle as Hampton walked towards Michael arm in arm with her father to the tune of “Conversations in the Dark” by John Legend, a true vision in her Ines Di Santo gown with a gorgeous cathedral length train and veil that fluttered behind her as she floated across the aisle.
After they said I do, the darling newlyweds led everyone to cocktail hour and then reception in the Cheyenne Club. Guests found their seats with custom shot glasses hand calligraphed by CCR Calligraphy, and so the party began! Warm wood tables were adorned with cream lace chargers, the sweetest vintage floral dinner plates, and a color burst garden of florals! All indulged in the delicious multi-course meal and the peaches and cream wildflower wedding cake!
Hampton + Michael got the party started with their first dance to “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates. “My favorite part of the reception was when everyone started grabbing these purple wildflowers from the arrangements around the stage and there was a sea of purple-puffed flowers in the air and the entire room felt like magic thanks to my wedding planner, Spice, who had what felt like hundreds of these flowers for our guests to hold!”
As the reception neared the end, the bride + groom ran through a tunnel of sparklers and hopped into their vintage, electric blue Ford pick-up truck to make their way to their after party where they danced the night away! Be sure to take a peek at all the magic below from Hampton + Michael’s wedding at Brush Creek Ranch!

We are so excited to share all the pretty details from Holly + Matt’s western chic wedding weekend at Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado with you! After postponing their wedding due to covid and working with Calluna for two years, what unfolded on their wedding weekend was a dream come true! Dunton Hot Springs is a special place for Holly + Matt as they visited a month after they got engaged and instantly knew it was the perfect place for their wedding immersed in nature with the beautiful forests, mountains, flower fields, and surrounding waterfalls.
Holly + Matt’s intimate wedding was full of personality with rich textures of leather, layered woven rugs, and warm woods with moody moments full of terracotta tones, burgundy, caramel, and greenery playing to the beauty of the mountains and the romantic mining town where it all took place.
Their first look was absolutely breathtaking! Holly floated across the flower fields to surprise Matt in her gorgeous Galia Lahav gown with a tumbling waterfall and luscious trees in the distance. When he turned ‘the world just melted away and it felt like it was just the two of us surrounded by the beauty of the mountains in a field of wild daisies. It was the most perfect moment in time!’
The bride and groom made their way to ceremony where layered woven rugs splashed down the aisle with guests seated at a mix of modern leather, mango wood, and fur chairs overlooking the gorgeous alpines of the Colorado Rockies. Holly’s sweet mom gifted her grandmother’s embroidered handkerchief that she pinned onto her bridal bouquet that she held as they walked down the aisle together. ‘The most serendipitous part about it all was that I also gave my mom a custom embroidered handkerchief as a wedding gift!’ Our hearts just melted as Holly + Matt read their vows to each other and said I do to their forever!
The guests then made their way to cocktail hour and reception, where they delighted in the newlywed’s signature cocktail ‘The Spicy Sprollie’ named after their pup, enjoyed a delicious meal, and danced the night away underneath the stars! Guests found their seats at warm wood tables dressed with gorgeous florals, acacia wood chargers, moody dinnerware, vintage burgundy glassware, and ribbed champagne coupes to toast with each place setting adorned with watercolor place cards with a bear, moose, deer, or fox as a nod to their love of animals. It truly was a day to remember as Holly + Matt celebrated their love with their nearest and dearest in such good cheer!
The days leading up to Holly + Matt’s wedding were fun filled as the group went horseback riding, picnicked in the forest, enjoyed the hot springs, and attended their incredible cowboy chic rehearsal dinner! Everyone showed up in their cowboy boots and cowboy hats for the BBQ, which ‘made the night feel even more like a celebration yeehaw!’
Holly + Matt’s wedding weekend in the mountains was so dreamy and will always be one that we cherish! We’re so grateful to be a part of their lovely celebration and we hope you enjoy the magic from their wedding celebration!
