A Romantic, Winter-Inspired Wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colorado
Jemma Eriksen (31 and an attorney) and Matthew Dunn (32 and works in commercial banking) met at their alma mater, Pepperdine University. They quickly hit it off, but their fling was short-lived and the two went their separate ways. Six year later, Matthew reached out to Jemma via Facebook and they decided to give things another shot. "One of our first official dates was a snowboarding trip together in Mammoth," says Jemma. "I think I won him over when I beat him down the hill!" A wedding in Colorado seemed like the perfect fit for the couple. Not only is Colorado Jemma's home state, it's where the couple spent a lot of their time together, getting to know one another and building their relationship. The couple planned a romantic, winter-inspired affair at the rustic Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, CO, opting for a timeless color palette of white and ivory to add a polished touch to the venue's rustic interior. Airy, cream-colored fabric and chandeliers were hung from the space's exposed wooden beams and pillar candles lined the aisles to create a romantic ambiance. For the reception, the couple decked out the tables with crisp white linens, burlap runners and fresh bunches of hydrangeas, roses, orchids and willow branches as a nod to the day's theme.
