Carolyn & Shawn's Romantic Wild Horse Inn Mountain Wedding | Devils Thumb Ranch | Colorado Wedding Photographer | Mountain Weddings | Apollo Photojournalism
The Wild Horse Inn is the perfect Colorado Wedding Venue for epic CO mountain views and a rustic but elegant vibe. I love the way that this venue is situated in the mountains but is still accessible to Denver and the airport, it is a great option for an awesome CO wedding. Carolyn and Shawn had planned their whole wedding in just a matter of months and it was crazy to see how much they were able to pull of in such a short amount of time!
Their ceremony was so beautiful, with these awesome vintage chairs and couches instead of crappy plastic chairs. They had this beautiful arch set up that was custom made with aspen trees and florals, such a dream! I loved all of the rustic touches, the lace, the cowgirl boots, and the live music. It made for a great lively party where all of the guests and family were sure to have a great time.
One of my favorite elements of their wedding was how enthusiastic that they were about including their nieces and nephews! There were TONS of kiddos and while this might sound like a nightmare to some photographers, it was a welcome addition for us. We love the energy and animated vibes that little ones bring to wedding days and even though it can mean a little more organizational power being needed, I think it also makes for great pictures. They had each kiddo sign their wedding certificate as their witnesses which was one of my favorite parts of the whole day. It was such a fun way to incorporate their love of family into their wedding.
The night was unseasonably warm which kept everybody outside dancing into the late hours. The food was delicious, the speeches were heartfelt, and the dances were upbeat. I loved working with this fun couple and wish them so much happiness!
