White Barn Wedding Venue in Utah

River Bottoms Ranch Utah Wedding Venue

Rivers Bottom Ranch is the perfect destination for a Park City, Utah wedding. The light filled wedding venue is quickly accessible from Park City (only 20 minutes away) but also situated on a quiet river road making you feel totally secluded in the mountains. I’m in awe of this venue. Every time I walk in, its airy design is the perfect backdrop. Outside it’s even better. Horses in the fields, trails, ponds, you name it, this high end venue has it.  The grounds are pristine with 360 degree views. I had the opportunity to shoot here twice in the fall and let me tell you, late September and early October are a dream!

For this particular shoot, we had an incredible amount of talent working on the team to make it this beautiful. From the stylist, planners, and florists, everyone has a specific gift and artistic talent that is high touch and refined. I wanted to really stretch myself as a visual artist so I committed to only shooting film. Yep, no digital back ups, and it was at least 10 days before I would even get a preview of what I captured. Scary, right? Yes, it’s scary, but I found that this was the perfect time for me to take this risk. No one’s wedding was at stake, and I wanted to push myself. I think it paid off, but I’ll let you be the judge of that.

A casual, luxe, and ultra-feminine styled wedding atop Breckenridge Colorado mountain

A casual, luxe, and ultra-feminine styled wedding atop Breckenridge Colorado mountain

Casual & Luxe Wedding atop a mountain in Colorado

My vision for this Breckenridge Styled Wedding was inspired by the design of the home that sits atop a mountain with panoramic views of all of Breckenridge Ski Resort. Afterall, small, intimate weddings in homes have become popular since 2020 forcing us all to think outside of the norm for weddings. Once I stepped foot into this luxury mountain home, I could envision the rest of what a wedding day could look like here, so I collaborated with the owner and designer and other local artisans to make it come alive. 

Most people think of Breckenridge as a winter destination, but let me let you in on a little secret. The summers are where it’s at. That’s why over 2000 couples come from all over to get married here for our evergreen, snow-capped mountains and high alpine temperatures to beat the heat. You’re guaranteed not to *sweat, and that makes a lot of Southerns like me excited to have their wedding in the mountains. (*disclaimer: OK, you may sweat a little on your wedding day. It happens to the best of us.)

All the fine touches were taken care of by an incredible team of vendors and planners. I got to flex my creative muscles in the off season by creating the design board and visiting each person who wanted to collaborate on this styled shoot. I was honored to collaborate with Little White Dress Bridal in Denver, Colorado, Logan Ellis with Divine Beauty Artists, and Nikole owner of DonLo Mercantile for this editorial shoot. They’ve each written some details meant for brides planning their wedding in this article.

Hair accessories for your Colorado Wedding

Don’t forget the hairpiece when completing your look. I’m partial to a long veil. And since the hair is such an important part of the bride’s style and beauty, it is an important element to tie it all together. It can totally elevate your wedding day attire. Whether you go with a hair piece or veil, just do it!

The Maria Elena hair ornament used in this photo shoot features crystalized fabric leaves and florals with delicate beading and pearls. The cut and clarity of the crystals is exceptional and captures the light from every angle.  Maria Elena Headpieces are hand-made in Miami, Florida.  Maria Elena started her business 30 years ago by making a headpiece for her own daughter’s wedding, and each piece is heirloom quality and uses only the finest of materials and craftsmanship.  – Cate Carpenter, Little White Dress

Hairstyle for a Colorado bride in a flowy, and floral dress

This dress was so perfect for the venue that it deserved two hairstyles. For the ceremony look we chose to go with the pulled back look with light face framing pieces. For the reception and dancing, a down all down and soft wave was the exact casual look we were trying to achieve.

The  [Savin London]  gown I found to be a little more playful. Pulling the hair out of the face to see the gorgeous soft glam makeup but still having the hair mostly down in the back to emphasize the back of the dress made the look complete. -Logan Ellis, Divine Beauty Artists

Amanda and David August 2021 Wedding at St. Regis Hotel and Maroon Bells in Aspen, Colorado

Do you want a high end feel for your wedding day, but you still want it intimate and small? Well, Amanda and David’s day is your recipe for just that. They began by getting ready separately; David at his longtime family home in Aspen and Amanda at their honeymoon suite at the St. Regis hotel. My word! That suite was beyond gorgeous! The St. Regis is one of my favorite places and stepping into their courtyard is a little oasis in the mountains. It was the perfect setting for Amanda and David’s first look before they joined their family on a private shuttle to the lake at Maroon Bells to have their ceremony.

After the ceremony, we took a short drive down to the river where they popped champagne, signed the marriage license, and shared time with family. As a photographer, I loved getting to take extra time with the couple to in multiple locations around Aspen. After we captured some gorgeous pictures with the families, and the bride and groom, I got to take Amanda and David around downtown Aspen just before sunset to capture their newlywed photos. It was so fun walking down the street to everyone’s congratulations and well wishes.

At the end of the day, they all sat down for a cozy dinner at the Caribou Club in downtown Aspen where each family member went around the table and toasted the newlyweds. It was the perfect day for their small, intimate wedding in Aspen.

Aspen Colorado Wedding at Aspen Meadows Resort

Aspen Colorado Wedding at Aspen Meadows Resort

Aspen Meadows Resort Wedding

One of the most beautiful places on this planet is Aspen, Colorado. Hewitt-Anne and Andy had an intimate wedding ceremony and reception at the Aspen Meadows Resort the first weekend of September. Labor Day weekend is such a fun time to be in Aspen. The weather is starting to crisp up and people are coming in from all over for the long weekend. Andy’s family hosted a the rehearsal dinner at the Caribou Club to kick off the wedding weekend. The Caribou Club is a cool, eclectic western mix of art. Texture and rich colors ooze from ever corner of the member’s only club.

In perfect contrast to the night before at the Caribou Club, was their wedding venue, Aspen Meadows Resort. This light and airy modern space, mixed with art galleries and large outdoor spaces is unlike any other wedding venue I’ve been to. Aspen Meadows is a 40 acre resort with surrounding mountain views and winding trails. It’s a short drive from downtown Aspen but you feel like you’re totally secluded in the mountains. The reception took place at the Albright Pavilion, which is an all white and all bright, see what I did there :). It’s a incredible wedding venue with panoramic sliding glass windows that open up to the West. You won’t miss a sunset, that’s for sure.

The bridal party got ready at Hewitt-Anne’s family home. There she wanted to have a first look with her bridesmaids and a first look with her dad. Talk about water works! This family and group of friends was so genuine and kind. I absolutely loved being surrounded by them all day long.

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Winter Wedding in Tabernash, Colorado

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Winter Wedding in Tabernash, Colorado

Natalie and Jeremy’s winter wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch was what I’d call feminine opulence with organic Colorado touches. The whole wedding day was so relaxed for everyone. Even for us vendors, it was no hustle and bustle and everything just flowed without any rush. That’s of course due to Brittany Tucker with Kelly Karli Weddings and Events planned the day flawlessly.

All the fine touches were taken care of by an incredible team of vendors and planners. The design team with Eclectic Hive set up the Broad Axe Barn like I’ve never seen it before. From the draping to the farm tables, flowy table runner and hand written acrylic menus, and roaring fire flanked by even more candlelight it was the most elegant design. La Rue Floral Design was responsible for the gorgeous dusty rose, mauve, and eggplant purple flowers and greenery draping from what felt like every inch of Broad Axe Barn. There was even a cozy fire pit and lounge on the deck for post reception cocktails, s’mores and cigars to end the night.

Devil’s Thumb Ranch and Spa Venue

Devil’s Thumb Resort and Spa is one of my favorite ranch venues in Colorado, especially in the winter months when you can see guests taking to cross-country ski trails and horses munching hay on the snow. Even the ranch horses made an appearance after their first look. It’s tucked away on sprawling acreage in Tabernash, away from the bustle of neighboring ski towns. Still close enough to get on the slopes at Winter Park or Granby Ranch.

I was honored to assist Sarah Porter Photography on this wedding and excited to share with you some of the images I took that day.
