Keri and Sam’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding was as glamorous as it was adventurous. The celebration started with a wedding ceremony accented by glittering bridesmaids’ gowns in silver and gold, followed by incredibly gorgeous couple’s portraits in the snow by Jeff Cooke Photography and a night of dancing in the warmth of the lodge. The next day, Keri and Sam geared up to ski in their wedding attire, making for some fabulously fun images that we’re so excited to share!
Keri and Sam
Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Tabernash, Colorado
When envisioning our wedding day, I had two things in mind: metallic colors and candle light. I couldn’t decide between silver or gold as the main focus, so I decided to combine them and developed a “mixed metallic” scheme. My bridesmaids rented their mismatched sparkly dresses from Rent the Runway and my wedding planner helped add metallic details throughout the decor — from my cake, to the candle holders and table runners. To achieve the candle light/romantic vibe, we had over 500 candles on the tables, hanging candle plank chandeliers and our DJ provided the soft, amber uplighting.
Sam is a simple man when it comes to fashion and didn’t want anything too formal. The groomsmen wore their own dark colored suits with matching pocket squares. We also had grooms women who wore metallic colored dresses also from rent the runway.
Our favorite moment from the wedding was when we saw each other for the first time. We opted not to do a “first look” before the ceremony, so the walk down the aisle was very emotional and special.
The Couple Recommends:
Kara Delay, with Love This Day Events was outstanding. She took my vision and ran with it; making it better than I could have ever dreamed. It was so nice to be able to just show up for our wedding and not have to worry about anything. I loved that Kara knew Devil’s Thumb Ranch like the back of her hand and that she had personal relationships with all of the vendors and DJ. I owe my preserved mental status to her.
