A Romantic Wedding With a Rustic Twist at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado
The rustic elements on the property of Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, Colorado, blended well with elegant details brought in for this romantic wedding, and the gorgeous mountainous backdrop was hard to ignore. "We chose this location because it was beautiful, rustic and elegant," Meghan Bornheimer (27 and a preschool teacher) says of her marriage to Dane Hermsen (27 and a code enforcement officer). "I wanted everyone to feel cozy and feel the love that Dane and I have for each other." At the ceremony that overlooked lush landscaping in the distance, guests faced the wooden pergola made of tree branches, captured by Rayna McGinnis Photography. Meghan and Dane were married underneath a hanging floral arrangement created by Bella Lu Floral, which matched the pastel-colored bridal bouquet of peonies, roses and several other romantic blooms. At the indoor reception, kraft paper escort tags accented with colorful flower pins were displayed on wired wooden boards, which directed friends and family to their assigned tables marked with numbers on wooden slabs. Beautiful hydrangea and stock centerpieces had branches poking out at the top, with tealights inside hanging glass orbs that gave a warm glow, thanks to the planning assistance from Mile High Celebrations and Hands Down Event Planning. We fell in love with the stationery used for programs and thank-you cards, which were printed on ivory paper with floral accents and a cursive font that embodied the day's romantic ambience. A tip from Meghan: "There will be ups and downs throughout the planning and the actual wedding day, but remember that it's just the two of you."
