Hooray for Kayla and Matt! This couple was married on a hot, hot day up in Pine, Colorado at Lower Lake Ranch. We’ve always had a soft spot for Pine- it’s not that far out of Denver to give you a mountain feel with relative ease, and it’s in a little sun valley so we generally don’t have to worry about Colorado’s afternoon mountain rains. Lower Lake Ranch has done a lot of work to make their venue more streamlined and event oriented since we were there last- the closer location is now a really easy, private space for weddings. Plus, they have the BEST garlic mashed potatoes anywhere in Colorado- believe us, we’ve tried lots!
Kayla and Matt had such a wonderful, laid back event. Their sweet, wiggly puppy was their flower girl, and she could not have been more excited. I swear she’s watching the ceremony with just as much joy as the humans! Kayla’s grandfather may have been the only person more joyful- it was our delight to meet him and see him off in his cherry red convertible.
Because everything was so relaxed, the couple really got to spend time with their friends and family. They could hang out and enjoy a “Hergerita” (potent recipe coming soon!) or a home brew, watch the deer, laugh at some truly epic toasts, and snuggle up by the fire. Kayla and Matt really got to be AT their own wedding, and that is just SO important!
Our best wishes and biggest congratulations again! -A&D
