Alexandra + Kory’s Flying Horse Ranch Wedding

June 27, 2018

I had been looking forward to Alexandra and Kory’s Flying Horse Ranch wedding since this winter, and as always I was doing my fair share of research online of their Larkspur wedding venue before the big day. I always love shooting in new venues, since I get to explore a new place and get creative with my work, and Flying Horse Ranch did not disappoint. As I pulled up to the venue after a beautiful drive through the rolling hills of Larkspur, Colorado, I was met with the kind of gigantic ranch house that belongs in another time.

Alexandra and Kory live in Utah, but chose a Colorado destination wedding as much of their family already lives out here. They could not have picked a more perfect venue for their day! The outdoor ceremony site overlooked the rolling hills, the bride’s getting ready room was some serious old-school elegance, and the reception barn where the dancing took place was so much fun – it had an upstairs catwalk going around the dance floor, so my second shooter and I could get completely different angles during the dances.

Now I’m pretty used to showing up and finding everyone stressed on the morning of a wedding, but Alexandra was SO relaxed when I got there – she was even checking in to see if needed anything! And that really set the tone for the rest of the day. Alexandra and Kory chose to do a first look, and last minute decided to read their vows to each other as well. We snuck them away for a quiet moment outside in the trees, and seeing them wipe each other’s tears away while reading their vows was by far my favorite part of the day. I asked them afterwards if they were glad they chose to do that in private, and they both fully agreed that it was much more emotional to share that moment alone than in front of a bunch of people.

The evening ended with a sparkler exit, and after the newlyweds had made their way down the sparkler aisle twice, Alexandra looked at me and asked “Can I just go around hugging people until the sparklers die?” I am not exaggerating when I say that she is the sweetest bride ever!

Thank you Alexandra and Kory for letting me be a part of your Flying Horse Ranch wedding.. You two are such wonderful loving people, and I wish you all the best in the years to come!
