LAUREN + RYAN || COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

There is such a special place in our hearts for close-knit, intimate wedding days. We kicked off the weekend bowling with Lauren + Ryan and their family and friends -- we got competitive and laughed a whole lot. The wedding day itself was spent at The Broadmoor moving from one sweet moment to the next in that crisp, summer Colorado weather. The rain met us right after Lauren made her day down the aisle and made for such a unique + nostalgic ceremony. 

Everyone gathered at the long, farm table for dinner. The soft candlelight glow, bellows of laughter, a selfie stick appearance, and makeshift limbo with several ties were all so memorable. This was one amazing wedding weekend!

Madison + John // Red River, NM

 

We road tripped up to Red River, NM back in August (with our dog/sidekick Bennett) to capture Madison + John's special day. Destination weddings are always special because we get a little vacation of our own on the front or back end. See the bottom of this post for a pic of the crazy off-the-grid AirBnB we visited in Taos, NM! 

Madison + John both went to Texas A&M, but it took them separately moving to DC and 3 years before they met. They met through mutual friends at a Redskins vs. Browns game when Johnny Manziel was still on the team (Gig 'Em Ags.) 

Crazily enough, each of their families grew up spending summers in Red River, NM, so when the time came to pick a location it was an easy decision as to where they would make their covenant. The site of their wedding was Bitter Creek Ranch, where musician Michael Martin Murphey plays on the weekends.
