This relaxed wedding day could not have been more perfect with the fresh mountain air and sunny Colorado sky. At the Evans Bridge, guests enjoyed all the sights and sounds of a wonderful Colorado summer day:  the relaxing trickle of Deer Creek, the scream of a hawk overhead, a light breeze through the valley and the smell of pine trees and wildflowers. It truly felt a million miles away from the bustle of the city! Suddenly, the meadow was filled with a sweet acoustic guitar melody as Anna made a breathtaking entrance down the flagstone pathway. It was simply wonderful! Special touches included floral print bridesmaid dresses, cocktail hour games in the meadow and Anna’s stunning vintage inspired dress.

At the reception, guests enjoyed touching moments with heartfelt toasts, first dances and lots of love and laughter. Guests were treated to a delicious dinner complete with dessert bar provided by Tony Rosacci’s Fine Catering. Discosapian kept the party going with fun music for all ages! In the midst of all the fun, Anna and Daniel managed to slip away for a quiet portrait session together under the stars and market lights. What a perfect day for such a sweet couple!

We asked Anna and Daniel to answer some questions for us in order to see their perspective on the experience and give some insight to the planning process. Here are their responses:

What made you choose Deer Creek Valley Ranch? 

We loved the amazing outdoor setting and the barn. We also appreciated the fact that there were lots of options for our guests to enjoy themselves like games in the meadow during cocktail hour and the man cave during the reception. 

How was the planning process for you?

Planning logistics was the easy part especially since DCVR provides lists of great vendors and we could reach out to Brandi whenever we were stuck on something, managing family expectations and opinions was the hard part!

What was your style inspiration? 

Both Dan and I are very low key so there were no vision boards or color schemes for this wedding- we just went with things we liked and tried to keep things easy. Our main focus was just enjoying ourselves and throwing a fun party. 

What was the most memorable moment from the day?

The ceremony and the cocktail hour in the meadow. It was personal and felt very much like a reflection of us and the setting was fantastic. It had been raining so consistently all summer but we lucked out and were able to enjoy the mountain views and the Colorado ranch setting. 

Looking back, would you change anything? 

No. I had so much fun. Dan's and my goal was to actually enjoy our own wedding day and I think we accomplished that.

Leslie and Jeremy are a happy-go-lucky pair who have so much fun together! Their wedding day was about a union of families and a true celebration of their new life together. The day was filled with playfulness, laughter and many touching moments. Leslie was a breathtaking bride in her beautiful gown with intricate lace detailing. She was transported to the gazebo in a covered wagon provided by Kiowa Creek Coaches. During the ceremony, the valley was filled with lovely cello music performed by their daughter. 

Relish Catering provided an outstanding dinner! Afterwards, guests were led outside and watched Leslie and Jeremy’s first dance as husband and wife underneath the market lights, with the sun setting behind the mountains in the background.

Their décor included impressive DIY touches, pops of navy and khaki and flower arrangements by Prive Events. Brittany with Prive was on-site not only as their coordinator but also as their florist! With Taylor Jones Photography behind the lens, these are some photographs that you won’t want to miss! Check them out below.

We asked Leslie and Jeremy to answer some questions for us in order to see their perspective on the experience and give some insight to the planning process. Here are their responses: 

1. What made you choose Deer Creek Valley Ranch? 

We instantly knew that we had to get married at DCVR the first time we visited the ranch. We had toured several other venues prior to DCVR and none of them could compare! The service we received from management at the ranch was excellent. We didn't feel rushed or pressured to make a decision.  She took her time showing us every aspect the ranch had to offer and was able to answer all of our questions.  We left with a very comfortable feeling, knowing that we had found the perfect place to say 'I do'.  

2. How was the planning process for you?

We had a lot of fun with the planning process! Jeremy's favorite part had to be the catering tastings. I enjoyed creating the details for our day, as I'm sure most brides do! The best decision we made was to work with Prive Events for our day-of coordination. My bridesmaids and close family all live several states away, so by working with Prive, the logistical details were all taken care ahead of time and we were able to relax and enjoy the day with our family and friends!

3. What was your style inspiration?

Our style inspiration was a direct reflection of the ranch and our personal style. We wanted to keep things simple and laid back, creating a relaxed atmosphere for our guests. We didn't fuss over a lot of decorations because the venue simply doesn't need them. We made sure though that we included some personal touches; for example, we created our table numbers from a branch found at our favorite camping spot and Jeremy built the bag toss and washer games as well as the seating chart. 

4. What was the most memorable moment from the day?

It's hard to choose!  I'll never forget the feeling of our 'first look' though.  The anticipation I felt walking up to surprise him, followed by those moments we shared all to ourselves was a feeling we'll never forget. Secondly, walking down the aisle was very memorable for me. Since I was hidden away while all of the guests arrived, it was incredible seeing everyone there for the first time. Seeing the smiles, tears, and excitement in their faces was amazing. We felt very blessed to be surrounded by such a wonderful group of family and friends who were there to show their support and love for us as we exchanged vows.  

5. Looking back, would you change anything?

Honestly, we wouldn't change a thing. In true Colorado fashion, an afternoon mountain rain shower popped up during the ceremony, but even that didn't spoil the day!  I truly believe that we chose the right people to work with who made it all happen 'behind the scenes'.  Thank you to DCVR staff, Prive Events, Relish Catering, Taylor Jones Photography, COMPLETE DJ and Videography, Nicole Marie Makeup, Kiowa Creek Coaches and many others!
