14 Nov Ben & Liz – Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding
Lyssa and I had the opportunity to join Ben & Liz on their wedding adventure in Castle Rock this past summer. For their engagement session we went Jeepin’ outside of Aspen and had a blast. They’ve been an awesome couple to hang out with over the past year and their wedding day was no exception – their party was lit! But, more on that later. Wanting to stick true to their Catholic heritage, before heading off to Spruce Mountain Ranch they held their ceremony at St. Francis of Assisi which is an absolutely gorgeous church. It sits on top of a hill and overlooks Castle Rock and has views of Pikes Peak and other nearby mountains which lends itself incredibly well to the perfect setting. After we captured their ceremony and some family photos afterwards in the church, we headed over to the Ranch for their reception.
Spruce Mountain is nestled up against the hills of Larkspur and has some great mountain views and a variety of spots to take great photos. One of the first areas we visited was the pond on site followed by their pasture. Ben & Liz had a lot of guests, but fortunately the reception room was more than big enough to comfortably fit all 150 of them. After dinner and toasts, the venue opened up the doors to the patio where they shared their first dance as their guests looked on. Like we try to do with all of our couples, we pulled them away for a few minutes to capture the sunset and then let them enjoy their party – and it was a wild one! Guests were having a blast dancing with glow sticks, cutouts of Ben and getting charactertures drawn of themselves. It was so much fun and the photos definitely reflect that.
