Spruce Mountain Ranch Colorado Wedding Photography

As the 2013 wedding season begins, I can without question say it started on a bright note!  Tara and David had one FANTASTIC wedding!  The details, decor and suprises were off the charts!  Let’s start with my first few pictures…a couple of details and a few portraits just after Tara put her gorgeous Vera Wang dress on:


About this time, guests were transported from their cars to the ceremony site on a horse drawn carriage!  They arrived to find a stocked bar, and themed men’s and women’s corners:

It was the first unveiling at Spruce Mountain Ranch of the new ceremony site, Grace’s Chapel, named for Tara’s daughter.  An incredible backdrop for the ceremony was a poem David had recited to Tara that hung from the tree (tr):

Then it was off to the reception and the gorgeously transformed Albert’s Lodge:

I’m having a tough time narrowing down which images to share!  THAT’S how gorgeous the evening was!

Naturally, even the ‘send-off’ was incredible!  There was the exit in the Rolls Royce, delicious cinnamon rolls (“to get your morning roll’n”, and ‘firely Chinese flying lanterns’, there were these crazy, dangerous, flying paper balls of fire.  They photographed well (I thought), and looked pretty in person, but holy toledo, they were FLYING PAPER BALLS OF FIRE!
