Hey there…hope you had a wonderful weekend! I had a fun time meeting Ashlea (one of my out-of-state 2016 brides) on Friday in Estes Park, photographing James and Ann’s Highlands Ranch wedding on Saturday, and then photographing a top secret boudoir session on Sunday 🙂 It was a busy, but very fun weekend. I said I would share this blog post last week, but that didn’t happen as planned. This is a long one! I tried to contain myself, but it was such a gorgeous wedding, and they gave me tons of portrait time (which you know I love), so it took a bit longer to blog than some of my other posts. So here it is, finally, with just a few minutes to spare before Monday is over. Mikala and Robby were married at my favorite Wyoming wedding venue, the Vee Bar Ranch. Well, ok, ALL of the Laramie wedding photos I have captured have been at the Vee Bar Ranch. But still, it’s an awesome venue! The Vee Bar doesn’t host many weddings, so if you are looking for a wonderful, rustic, Wyoming venue…don’t wait another minute and miss out on this location! Mikala and Robby were one of just four weddings at the ranch last year. Their wedding was a lot of fun, and had some very beautiful details. Mikala looked absolutely stunning in her unique Truvelle wedding dress and her fresh floral hairpiece. For the reception she put a colorful flannel on over her dress, it was adorable! The bridesmaids, Robby, and the groomsmen all looked great in their wedding attire too, and they were all so much fun to photograph. Some of the most memorable parts of the day included their sweet first look, their beer unity ceremony and heartfelt vows, the milk and cookie and dessert table, the bride and groom singing for their guests, and then some epic sparkler photos to top off the night.
They mixed their favorite beers together, toasted and then drank the concoction for their unique wedding unity ceremony. It was a very cute idea!
It’s not everyday when both the bride and groom get on the stage and sing for their guests. Robby wasn’t going to do it, but he had just enough liquid courage to get up there and perform with the band…they were great!!

Have a great week!
