Bryan and Lori

Bryan and Lori’s wedding was filled with emotion throughout the day. Weddings tend to reveal what is important, whether we have it with us or if it is missing. Friends and family come together to celebrate and share the love that they have for the couple. Lori felt the sadness of the death of her father and the gratefulness of her mother’s strength. She has found a man who loves her and protects her and is her Anchor. Bryan and Lori’s lives entwined together beautifully and it was displayed on their wedding day.

Younger Ranch

Younger Ranch is near Black Forest, Colorado. They offer a rustic bridal cottage for Lori and her bridesmaids. For the groom and his groomsmen, they have a TeePee nestled in the edge of the forest. Also, the views in every direction are perfect. Having a wedding venue that offers a variety of scenery can be a huge benefit. From rolling hills and open meadows, to mountain views and a thick wooded forest, Younger Ranch has a lot to give.

Since Bryan and Lori’s day had perfect weather, they had the ceremony outside on a hilltop that has extravagant views. While the Bride and Groom were busy with photos, their guests enjoyed cocktails in the open hay barn. Afterwards, everyone moved inside the large barn for dinner and dancing. It was a day to remember for Bryan and Lori.
