2021 Cover Couple: A Casual Country Wedding
Ashley & Josh | September 5, 2020
From the bride…
Our wedding was in the perfect spot, on the perfect day. The vibe was laid back, with lots of fun, booze, and TONS of dancing.
When we visited River Bend Ranch, we immediately fell in love with the property. The location, the owners, and the landscape are beyond spectacular! I wish we could have a party there every year!
Our ceremony was next to the pond with the red cliffs as our backdrop. The sun was in the perfect spot and it could not have been more beautiful.
I wanted Josh and I’s first look to be at the altar. I was so nervous but when I finally saw him it was the best moment!!
My favorite memory was Josh’s vows. They were funny yet extremely thoughtful and authentic.
Josh made the arch which was the best!
Zia Taqueria was AMAZING. The food was so good and the staff was so great. I chose them because they are my favorite restaurant in Durango.
THE SEATING CHART
Our seating chart was an array of wine bottles which I made labels for with the seating arrangements. For the table numbers, we had pictures of each of us at each age. (i.e. Table 9 was a picture of Josh and me at the age of 9).
Even though everyone was watching our first dance together, it felt like we were in our own world.
I would have hired a videographer so I could remember all the special memories forever.
