In planning their wedding, Kelsey and Stephen wanted to create an event that represented their love for the mountains and decided to give their celebrants grandeur views of the rolling Rocky Mountains. Many of their guests traveled from out of state, so personalizing the wedding was very important to the couple. Kelsey and Stephen wrote their own vows and only included parts of the traditional ceremony that meant something to them. With the help of Rami Carter of Pick Me Weddings, the color palette — indigo, gray, black, champagne, gold and silver — combined effortlessly with Strawberry Creek Ranch in Granby, Colorado, creating the perfect atmosphere for the romantic wedding. Mallory Munson Photography beautifully captured the couple on their big day.
Kelsey and Stephen
Strawberry Creek Ranch, Granby, Colorado
From the bride: My dress, “Dori” by Hayley Paige was Alabaster in color and accents of that were weaved throughout in customized chapsticks, koozies, and my bouquets ribbon wrap. The table linens were double layered with white rounds and an indigo overlay, complimenting that were gold chargers and mercury glass pillars and those lush white blooms.
Processional: A Thousand Years – The Piano Guys
Recessional: You Make My Dreams Come True – Hall & Oates
First Dance: What Would I Do Without You – Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors
Advice from the bride: A week before our wedding, my engagement ring and wedding band were lost in the mail! They have still never been recovered and we are in the process of getting a new one made. Things will pop up and surprise you for sure, but remember the most important thing is that you are focused on the commitment you are making to the one you love. Spend a few moments of time together and enjoy the day. We enjoyed ourselves and each other while taking portraits after the ceremony, running around just us (and the photographers). We also had a bridesmaid sing karaoke, which we did not have karaoke at the wedding, but we went with it and it was hilarious none the less.
