Winding River Ranch Summer Wedding | Denver Wedding Photographer

Happy #weddingwednesday and Thanksgiving Eve! I want to kick off the holiday season with some gorgeousness that was Tyler Jane + Tanner's Winding River Ranch Wedding in Grand Lake, Colorado earlier this year. I hope you all are ready for a gorgeous wedding party, mountain views, rustic charm, a horse, all things Colorado and about a million other things that I just cannot even put into words. So, grab that cup of coffee or glass of wine and enjoy this amazing wedding day of two high school sweethearts.

I will be the first to admit that I am not always a huge fan of sunflowers, but these gorgeous bouquets by Bloominous were just amazing and completed the bridal party perfectly. 


These bridesmaids were amazing. Every single one of them was so excited to be a part of Tyler Jane's day. I loved their blush pink dresses because they were pink and had pockets. Pocket dresses are the best!

Can we just talk about these freaking amazing ladies?!? So much fun!

Tanner's groomsmen were pretty awesome too, but I think that had something to do with the Coors and Stranahan's whiskey that they were enjoying!

Isn't this one good looking wedding party?!?


Tyler Jane + Tanner were married next to the Colorado River with rustic benches and signs.


The look on Tanner's face says it all as he saw his bride for the first time.


I am a sucker for father-daughter moments on wedding days. They give me all the feels.

I loved how much emotion filled Tyler Jane + Tanner's ceremony.

And when it was all said and done all the emotions came flowing out! It was beautiful!

Tyler Jane carved out time to have bridals with her horse 'Diva' and it was amazing! I can't imagine Tyler ever looking back on her wedding day and regretting having that time with her horse.

'Diva' even stuck around for Tyler Jane + Tanner's bride and groom portraits.

I just loved the mix of sparkle and wood for Ty + Tann's cupcake table.

Tyler Jane + Tanner served their guests some delicious bbq from Smokin' Moe's BBQ.

Twinkle lights + first dances = magic

Tanner and his groomsmen snuck away for a late night cigar. It was pretty epic.
