Double barn weddings at Devil’s Thumb are the best thing since sliced bread … correction, double barn weddings at Devils Thumb Ranch are the best thing since gluten free tortillas. For reals. I have been fortunate enough to plan 2 Colorado destination wedding weekends in the last year at Devil’s Thumb Ranch where we were able to maximize the guest experience at the Ranch (in terms of gorgeous views, fantastic event spaces, larger guest counts and … my personal favorite … a stunning design concept in colder weather where we do not have to “flip” the event space from ceremony to reception.
Katie and Rich came to me eleven months before the wedding. Together, we dreamed and designed a rustic chic 3 day fete that utilized all of Devil’s Thumb. The Ranch House for a Friday night welcome, the Yager House for wedding day getting ready, The Broad Axe Barn (and it’s spectacular views of the meadow) for ceremony and cocktail hour and as the sun set, we led the guests up to the newest event space, The High Lonesome Lodge for dinner and dancing.
We built the design around the rustic gorgeousness of the wooden barns combined with our groom’s love of navy and orange (go Broncos!). Plum Sage took our design to spectacular places incorporating the pampas grass for an unexpected accent (just look!) The Paper Guppy created a PERFECT digital invitation that evoked just enough whimsy into tradition to be perfect. We teamed with Charming Chairs for farm tables and wooden cross back chairs, La Tavola for the linens and Elite DJ knocked it out of the park with the draping. This may be one of my favorite designs in the High Lonesome so far.
Enjoy these STUNNING images from the absolutely magnificent Ashley Sawtelle. Personally, the last two images in this post are my favorites of the day. Seeing a couple that I love simply enjoying the heck out of their day is why I love what I do. Happy everything to Katie and Rich – you two simply are the best. xoxo
