This beautiful shoot by CONNIE WHITLOCK at a picture perfect ranch in the heart of Colorado, just goes to prove that weddings at rustic venues don't necessarily need to include your typical rustic style decor. They can be elegant and refined and in keeping with the nature that surrounds you as this design by A VINTAGE AFFAIR EVENTS & RENTALS so perfectly demonstrates. With a colour palette of grey, navy and smoky blue, they've made the most of the stunning panoramic scenes whilst still incorporating the horses and more rustic elements.

On top of the ceremony location at COLORADO WEDDING VENUE C U LAZY RANCH the views sweep over the lake towards the towering peaks in the background it really doesn't get much more romantic than this! A beautiful ring of greenery and florals by EUROPEAN FLOWER SHOP highlights the ceremony spot without competing with the views.
