From the Magazine: Cowboy Chic

From the bride: I attended the Durango Wedding Expo and it was very helpful to have everything in one place and make a day of it. It was also nice to be able to test food, check out photographers and see all the vendors there. The deals and giveaways were great and I even won…

Fun & Spunky at Ridgewood

From the bride, Deborah:  Living in Albuquerque we were a little bored with the hotel ballroom weddings.

A Barbecue with a Wedding on the Side

From the bride, Joy: We love playing outside, especially in the mountains, and wanted a day that reflected the easy-breeziness of the simple joys of sunshine and wildflowers enhanced by the refreshing taste of ice-cold beer on a perfect Colorado summers day. We kept it simple and stayed true to doing exactly what we wanted…

Simple & Classic at Ridgewood

From the bride, Rachel: We knew we wanted an outdoor wedding.  We fell in love with the scenery at Blue Lake Ranch. The trees, field and logs were just what we were looking for. It went with our inspiration, but also helped to guide us in further décor decisions. Mason jars, logs and lace just…

A Helicopter Entrance & A Stagecoach Exit

From the bride, Stacey:  We rented out the entire Silverpick Lodge for the weekend and had all our friends and family stay there.
