I’m so honored that I was able to capture this wedding day. Jordan is my sister-in-law, and she and her partner Tyler asked me to be a part of their desert wedding in Colorado. I’m always so grateful to have such amazing couples hire me to be a part of their day, but it’s even more special when it’s family. This High Lonesome Ranch Colorado wedding is so close to my heart, and I’m so excited to share it with the world!
Tyler loves the outdoors, which is why High Lonesome Ranch was the perfect venue! They take such good care of their guests, and have the most beautiful views and backdrops. Whether you want mountains in the distance or desert as far as the eye can see, High Lonesome Ranch has it all!
The details that Jordan + Tyler planned out were simple but beautiful. The ceremony had a simple arch with mountains stretching across the horizon behind them. There wasn’t a dry eye when Jordan walked down the aisle in her mom’s wedding dress. Jordan lost her mom as a child, but she had kept her mother’s dress, except for removing a few pleats, she didn’t change a thing on it. It fit her perfectly, and was STUNNING on her. It was such an amazing way to pay tribute to her mom.
We took family and bridal party portraits after the ceremony, and I snuck Jordan + Tyler away for some bridal portraits in the desert. The landscape surrounding the Ranch is so surreal, and I can’t wait to go back! Colorado is world renowned as a winter destination, but there are so many great things to do in the summer months too! There are also a ton of wedding venues and outdoor spaces for weddings and elopements that are amazing in the summer months.
Jordan + Tyler’s wedding day was such a fun and moving event. The ceremony left everyone in happy tears, the speeches were heartfelt and sweet, and everyone made it onto the dance floor under the covered reception area through the night! Tyler and Jordan are so in love, and it was so special to get to capture a piece of their story on their big day.
