A Fall Country Wedding

Amber & Jake | September 29th


From the bride…

We wanted a romantic, country wedding in the mountains during peak fall color. Our friends and family did all of the floral arrangements and decorating. My mother-in-law made our wedding cake, a friend made the altar, and I created my own custom jean jacket.



Double R Ranch is absolutely breathtaking and the views speak for themselves. Add in a beautiful main house, cookhouse, and tent that can easily accommodate a large reception, it was a no-brainer Double R Ranch would provide the best mountain setting for our special day. There were multiple options for guest accommodations on the property and several choices for the ceremony site. The fall colors made our decor pop and provided a gorgeous backdrop.

We held the ceremony in a pasture overlooking the Mancos Valley, with the fall colors perfectly framing the scene. Flower petals and lanterns lined the aisle to our handmade altar draped in florals and blush fabric. Seeing Jake tear up as I turned the corner to walk down the aisle was my favorite memory.

The reception was held under a large white tent aglow with twinkle lights. It was great to see our loved ones enjoying the food and music in this beautiful setting.

Enjoy every moment. Remember that it is your special day and no one else’s opinion is as important as yours. Don’t let the stress of the wedding distract from why you wanted to get married in the first place.
