Colorado Rocky Mountain Wedding | Nicole & Brunza

April 12, 2016

Nicole just couldn’t wait to see her Groom on the day of their Rocky Mountain wedding in Walden, Colorado…

In fact, she was very excited and kept asking questions about him.  “How does he look?”, “Is he feeling ok?”…she just couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle into his arms!

Nicole & Brunza’s wedding at the Whistling Elk Ranch was beautifully rustic and “country”.  Guests were shuttled to the expansive meadow of the ceremony site on the ranch on hay rides, and Nicole arrived on a stagecoach…yes, a stagecoach!  It was incredibly moving to see Brunza’s face when Nicole arrived, escorted by her father…he couldn’t keep the tears away!

The ceremony was followed by a good, old-fashioned bbq, complete with a bonfire, moonshine, and all the events that make a wedding special.

The venue, Whistling Elk Ranch is amazing and we can’t wait to go back!  Here’s some information from their website:

“We invite you to experience western Colorado as it once was. Stay in a private secluded cabin and take in the large undisturbed landscapes. Fish in nearby ponds, rides horses through aspen grooves, take the family for a stagecoach ride or just witness nature undisturbed in the American west.

Take in the serene peaceful setting. The only lights in the night sky are the stars.  The rustling branches of the pines lull you to sleep. The fragrance of sage covered with morning dew and perhaps some wildlife greet you in the morning.

If you are looking for a truly unique get-away experience you will surely find it here. We offer a variety of cabins, tipis, and camping options that will bring you close to nature. Explore mountain activities such as hiking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, hay rides….”

We also had the pleasure to work with Emily at Jolly Events out of Ft. Collins and had the best time – this girl is on it!  Despite the rain and distance between the events of the day, she made it all happen seamlessly.

Emily says, “The passion I have for the work I do is matched by my organizational skills, attention to detail, and an unfailing interest in really listening to you. While your needs are always a priority to me, your wants are just as important and I really enjoy making them happen.”

We really enjoyed working with her and always encourage having an experienced and professional planner to help with the details, and make things happen behind the scenes so you can enjoy your day!  Check her and her team out for full & month-of event planning services!
