The Keystone Ranch has to be one of my favorite venues. I love the quirkiness of the dining room, the history in the lounge area, the modern feel in the tent and the mountain view of the golf course ceremony site. It just seems like you get so much of every feel at the Ranch. I think this is what makes couples choose to have their weddings at the Ranch. Clare and Micheal included. These two cuties said their I do’s at the Ranch. The wedding party walked down the aisle to the music of the Heart Strings Music. After the ceremony guests flowed into the tent and on the lawn for cocktail hour. Next guests moved into the dining room for a Keystone Ranch dinner. Delicious! And the center pieces, love! The garland is very in right now and Lindsay at Pots and Petals nailed the look. After that guests danced the night away to Great Time DJ. A huge thank you to Michele and Mark at IN Photography for sharing these amazing photos with us!

Julie and Tyler. Such amazing people! We did a ‘Day of’ plan for them at the Keystone Ranch in Keystone Colorado and man, I wish we had been working together from the beginning. Being around these two for about 5 days just wasn’t enough!
Like so many weddings this past summer, we had the rain to contend with. I had been diligently watching the weather satellite from the moment I arrived at the Keystone Ranch. Thankfully they have an amazing system because they need to keep their golfers safe from lightning. After much time going back and forth about whether or not to go outside for the ceremony, I looked at Julie and asked her when you look back, would you be happier wet and outside or dry and inside. We have a window of time that might stay dry if we go now. She said, “let’s go outside!” That second the Keystone Ranch staff ran outside with their towels, dried chairs and we started the ceremony. We had gotten through the entire processional and I had just sent down Julie and her dad. Of course, it started raining. At that point, there was no turning back. So Julie did what makes any wedding planner proud, she kicked off her shoes and headed towards her awaiting groom. I’m so happy she made the decision to go outside because at the end of her wedding she came up to me and said “you know what my favorite part of today was? Getting married in the rain” Urg! I still get chills thinking about it and writing about it now. It goes down as one of my favorite wedding moments. And those photos! You can’t get clouds like that without a little rain 🙂 Thank you Dylan at Dylan Crossley Photo for the jaw dropping photos!

Ali and Rob. It was such a pleasure not only working with these two but also their incredible families. This is exactly how it should be when two families come together. All of the planning meetings and tastings were done with six people. Ali, Rob and both sets of parents. There was always so much joy and laughter. It was so fun to work with them. Rob’s father was actually given the honor of performing Ali and Rob’s ceremony. You don’t get much more family than that. On to the details! About an hour before ceremony time at the Keystone Ranch, the clouds rolled in, the wind picked up and it started raining. Everyone remained relatively calm. The wind was really howling and at one point it was raining sideways so I was really proud of them. I love couples like Ali and Rob because they took it in stride and were ready for anything. In true Colorado fashion the weather passed and we started the ceremony right on time. After that slight hiccup, everything went great. Ladybird Poppy‘s floral arrangement added just the right amount of green to the Keystone Ranch’s eclectic wedding tables. Everything was gorgeous! After dinner, guests were moved into the tent where Mannequin The Band absolutely rocked it. If it wasn’t for Caroline Colvin Photography I wouldn’t be able to share these amazing memories! Thank you Ali and Rob for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day and help you plan your wedding!
