Timeless Mountain Wedding Inspiration

Is there anything better than a mountain wedding? Especially when it’s at an 8,500 acre family owned ranch. Then add a gorgeous tablescape, champagne tower, horses..and wa-lah! We are so excited that this shoot is being featured in Rocky Mountain Bride Magazine! They are really paving the way for the Rocky Mountain region wedding industry. Have you grabbed your copy?!  Thank you Connie for capturing this so perfectly!

First lets talk about  C Lazy U Ranch a little more. Could this setting be more picturesque?  They have 200 horses and a glamping spa (no joke!). If I could move in, I would.

Sweet Letterpress designed the most stunning invitations. And Designs Girl provide the delicate calligraphy. My favorite part is the horse on the envelope flap. Such a perfect detail.

We had the crazy idea of doing a champagne tower, but a normal champagne tower just won’t do for this ranch setting. This is what we came up with. Cheers!


 Megan Joy Cakes created an amazing, incredibly intricate light blue cake with lots of texture and feathers!


For the tablescape our goal was to combine a formal look with a natural mountain setting. The blue linen,  wooden chairs, grey taper candles, potted calligraphy place cards, crystal glassware, off-white chargers, and overflowing florals from European Flower Shop  combined together to do just that!

We even created a little something for the guys: a palisade peach whiskey cocktail! With custom leather coasters.

And lets talk about Mandy’s look. Obsessed with this  Sarah Seven gown from A & Be Bridal. And her hair and make up was just perfection!

 And the ceremony site overlooking the continental divide was stunning! Ali of European Flower Shop created a stunning floral circle for the couple. It was the perfect solution as not to block the views while being beautiful and unique.

 Can’t get enough of these two!

Phew! I know that was a long post. But I just couldn’t help it! This shoot just makes my heart happy!

Huge shout out to all the amazing vendors:
