Younger Ranch Wedding

Maria and Billy got married in Colorado at Younger Ranch, a scenic and rustic wedding venue in Black Forrest.  Younger Ranch is a particularly special place to me, because my husband and I got married there 3 years ago! I love how open and spacious the property is, and it can be dressed up or down and work perfectly either way! And the owners, Gina and Rex, and seriously the sweetest people. This is a family owned ranch, and Rex and Gina personally pour their hearts into the ranch and have build most of it themselves.

More often than not, I have to battle weather on wedding days and work around it. We figured it would sprinkle a bit during the ceremony, which it did, but then it quickly turned into a downpour. We all followed Maria and Billy to abandon ship just seconds after the ceremony began to run to our cars! Luckily, we had an amazing team of vendors that quickly flipped the ceremony indoors. So impressive! Be sure to check the vendor credits below for the amazing team!

Congratulations Maria and Billy, it was a pleasure to be a part of your day!

    Beautiful Colorado Wedding photography! You are absolutely correct in that the weather often plays a role in sessions. I would imagine even more so for weddings because of how long they are and how quickly the weather changes throughout the day. Wonderful job capturing so many beautiful moments of the day and hats off to the vendors who were able to move the ceremony inside so quickly!

    Omg what a fun younger ranch wedding day! Rain and all. (I still think it’s absolutely good luck to have it rain on your wedding day). You really do capture your weddings so beautifully. Lovely work!
