WELCOME TO MY BLOG!
To simplify, I'm a cowboy's wife, ranch-kid mama, rural living home-maker (hallelujah Amazon Prime!) and traveling photographer capturing the love & life stories of our western culture.
This is where I share my recent weddings and couples but also.... everything else. From running a business to the every-day shenanigans of ranch life.
More about me here...
After getting to know Luke and Trista at their engagement session, I knew their wedding was going to be amazing and I couldn’t wait for the special day to arrive. Also, not gonna lie, Luke had me suuuupper excited to taste the cake after he’d gone on and on about how wonderful the taste testing had been. #idoitforthecake
When I walked into the Sky Ute Resort (near Durango Colorado) I immediately fell in love with the legit Pendleton accents everywhere! It was so perfect for Trista’s southwestern inspired theme and details! Look out “shoe shots”!
Southern Colorado could not have produced a more beautiful day as these two shared sacred vows in front of those who had come from near and far to witness them. It was a day filled with a lot of heartfelt hugs and happy tears.
I was so happy Luke & Trista did a La Marcha wedding dance. Since a lot of my weddings now take me away from the southwest it’s a special wedding tradition I’ve missed. But I tell you what…I have never seen a bigger La Marcha wedding dance than what happened at this wedding! There were few left sitting as the music started and everyone began lining up for the traditional dance. Needless to say by the time the last notes of the song were played there was much breathless-laughter and a lota of sweat going on! And that was just a taste of the fun that everyone was having as they celebrated Luke & Trista!
These two and their families have been such a joy to work with during this season of their lives and I wish them the best of luck and much happiness for the years to come!
Ps. The cake WAS delish and super cute! It even survived a car wreck on the way to the reception!
