Fall is in the air here, and I'm feeling it! Had to blog this beauty of a wedding today. Colorado seasons have to be my favorite thing about living in this state. This gorgeous affair was curated by Robin brown of West Slope Events and beautifully captured by Cat Mayer Studio. This was really the dream team of vendors perfectly pulled together in Colorado's Aspen Valley. Rock Bottom Ranch near Carbondale CO was the icing on the cake for a bold and romantic, yet laid back Rocky Mountain wedding.

I am a mountain girl. Don't get me wrong- I love warm sun and ocean views. But there's something about the Colorado mountains that soothes me. It's wild. It's untamed. It's home.
That is why this particular shoot was so special to do. We schlept our gear and our guys to our family cabin the Grand Mesa National Forest for these pretty shots. We foraged foliage and berries and huddled together as the rain passed. Located a few hours from Vail, this Western Slope territory is part of "The New West" - a hidden secret to Colorado.
Kaylan of K Robinson Photography captured the best of this trip on film processed by Mammum Film Lab. It really is amazing how much film picks up details digitals seem to forget. Pair it with beautiful hand-made paperies from Sara Lousie Paper Co. and you have the perfect compliment to this foraged forest wedding.
One of the things I love most about living in western Colorado is the summer sunsets. It's like a double feature when the sun sets in the West and casts it's pink glow on the bookcliffs to the North. Cassie and Darin held their indian summer soiree in Palisade Colorado last summer captured by the fabulous Cat Mayer of Cat Mayer Studio. Cassie chose colors as bright as her personality. We used garden roses, veronica, tulips, ferns, ranunculus, dahlias and orchids to create her wine country wedding. Enjoy! Vendor Spotlight:
