Exquisite Romantic Mountain Wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch
Lauren & Devin were married in mid-September as aspen trees were turning golden in the Rocky Mountains and the fall air was crisp enough for a crackling fire during cocktail hour but pleasant enough for an outdoor ceremony under the wooden pergola outside High Lonesome Barn at Devil’s Thumb Ranch.
Daylene Wilson Photography captured the early part of the day with Devin and the guys casting their fly fishing lines in hopes of landing trout and later with Lauren and her girls getting ready. The stone archways and wrought iron doors of the ranch’s wine grotto were an exquisite setting for Lauren as her bridesmaids assisted her into a gorgeous gown from The Bridal Collection.
Majestic peaks, an aisle lined with flower-adorned lanterns, and an elegant swag of fabric trimmed in eucalyptus garland gave guests plenty to admire, even before the dapper suited Devin watched his lovely bride walk down the aisle to say “I do”.
Escort cards creatively displayed in succulents growing from mercury glass containers, directed friends and family to table names hand-painted on weathered barnwood signs. Inside the reception barn, market lights added a festive twinkle while textured linens from Chair Covers & Linens warmed the room in soft golden hues. Table centerpieces from Statice Floral Design were a playful floral mix of pinks, peaches, and orange, artfully displayed in a variety of styles throughout the room including terrariums on tree slices, eclectic lantern collections, manzanita trees with candles, and barnwood boxes.
That 80’s Band, as always, kept the crowd entertained from a bridal party entrance complete with wild wigs, colored hats, and sunglasses to the end of a very full and satisfying evening on the dance floor.
