A Fun Colorado Springs Wedding

From the photographer Trystan Photography: We’ve been capturing photos of Bethany since she was a senior in high school. Not only has she grown into an amazing young lady, but she’s also an incredible photographer herself, so when she asked if we would capture the most important day of her life, we were incredibly honored. She and Danny not only have that easy, jealousy-inducing kind of love, but they can really dance. Swinging and spinning all over the dance floor, their energy abounded all night.

A Country Wedding on a Colorado Ranch

From the bride, Holly: I wanted our wedding to really be personal. It needed to be a description of who we are as a couple and individually. We chose a color palette with shades of beige/brown with pops of turquoise.

My corgi was our ring bearer, he greeted almost every guest during our ceremony.

Our ceremony was on top of a hill with beautiful meadows below. In the center of our arch was Pikes Peak. Some highlights; our officiant (he was hilarious! & kept me from sobbing the whole time).  My favorite memory from the ceremony is when my husband read his vows. We wrote our own vows, per his request, and I’ve been told there wasn’t a dry eye at the ceremony after hearing our vows. They were extremely personal and spoke true to our past, present and future relationship.

In place of the unity candle, we branded a hide, which really made the ceremony and the sealing of our marriage personal.

The ceremony was a whirlwind of tears for me. Fastest 30 minutes ever!

The décor of our reception was rustic with a vintage touch. A Country Wedding on a Colorado Ranch A Country Wedding on a Colorado Ranch

We had a S’mores Bar out by a fire pit. It was a huge hit!

Looking back, If I were to plan my wedding again, I would have followed through on more details that fell off the list the closer our wedding date got. I had so many good ideas that I wasn’t able to complete because time really does fly!

ADVICE: Enjoy it! Take the time to make your wedding as personal as possible.

The most memorable moment of our reception would be when Carson and I snuck off to take some pictures under the hay barn and in the rain. These are some of our FAVORITE pictures and we got a moment to ourselves amongst those we love having fun. I can vividly remember dancing under the hay barn with the music and laughter in the background.

A Western Style Wedding in Colorado

From the bride, Jaimie: We wanted to really show who we are as a couple with the style of our wedding. CJ grew up on a Simmental cattle ranch in Wellington, CO and has grown up surrounded in the western lifestyle. My grandpa was a melon farmer in Swink. He grew the best cantaloupe and watermelon that I have ever tasted. I grew up as a country kid and even wore my red cowgirl boots with my Little Mermaid dress to Disneyland when I was 5 years old. Our roots never left us, and we wanted it to have the touches of western style.

The ceremony was quick, simple and to the point…10 minutes long. We chose songs that meant a lot to us and described how we felt about one another to walk down the aisle to. My favorite part of the ceremony, by far, was our vows. They were so heartfelt and personal and it just makes my heart sing to remember that moment and that feeling. What a way to start a marriage! Hearing CJ tell me, in front of our family and friends, how he felt about me and us and our life together was something that I will never forget.

Looking back, it truly was the best day of our lives. We laughed, we cried, we danced. God lead us to one another, and it was truly meant to be. We had the best start to our marriage, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for our future. I would not change one thing about our wedding day.

ADVICE: Stay in line with what YOU want, no one else. Everyone will have opinions about your wedding and what you should or shouldn’t do. Don’t listen. I had 11 bridesmaids. ELEVEN. CJ had 4 groomsmen. FOUR. Who cares? It was our wedding and we did what we wanted. We didn’t light a unity candle. So what? You’re supposed to do a garter toss and bouquet toss and cake cutting ceremony. We didn’t. Do things your way to make your day perfect for YOU. No one else.
