A Refined Rustic Wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado
Rustic elements never looked more refined than with Meagan Brown (25 and a senior publicist) and James Harris’ (27 and a production coordinator) winter wedding. Heather Allen from Table 6 Productions worked with the couple to find the perfect balance between formal and simple throughout the details. “We wanted it to be a fun, semiformal affair, but we also wanted to play up the natural beauty of Spruce Mountain Ranch,” Meagan says. “We enjoy getting dressed up and going to a fancy party, but we also really love hanging out with friends and enjoying the outdoors.” They used a soft ivory, gray and green color palette in honor of their mountain venue and added wood, pine and candle accents throughout the decor. Steve Stanton Photography beautifully captured all the details of the day. For their ceremony, Meagan and James chose St. Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Church in Castle Rock, Colorado, because of its swoon-worthy views of the city from the top of a hill. “I’m Catholic, and James is Episcopalian, so we had a Catholic priest and James' family priest both preside,” Meagan says. “It felt very relaxed and comfortable to have them both there blessing our marriage.” Mount Gay rum with tonic water and lime (The Hermie Louise) greeted guests into the reception, which was decorated with lush centerpieces, floating candles and wooden table numbers. “Spruce Mountain Ranch immediately stood out to us simply because it was a beautiful location,” Meagan says. “We loved that it was very private. When you book an event there, you essentially get all 400 acres of the ranch to yourself. It also has a distinctively Colorado feel to it.” At the end of the night, the couple enjoyed a photo booth (secretly arranged by Meagan for James) and white-, dark- and milk-chocolate truffles for a sweet ending.
