- Wedding: August 2012
So before we were engaged we went on a trip to Devils Thumb Ranch in the Colorado Mountains for a weekend getaway. Well, it was perfect. Seriously. They have a huge lodge with a game-room, movie theater, 2 restaurants, spa, 16 cabins, coffee shop, and old bunkhouse, stables, and a lake. There is 5000 acres that they have you can explore. We brought the dogs and stayed in one of the cabins. The best part about the property is they let the beautiful horse wander around and they even peer into your cabin windows! Here are some pics from that weekend:
The cabin we stayed in.
One of the MANY gorgeous horses.
I must admit, I did not take this one, its was on DTR Facebook page 🙂
Anyways, once we got engaged we knew we would have a Colorado wedding in the mountains, even though all my family lives in California. I want them to really experience why I love Colorado.
After looking at some places in Vail, Steamboat, and Breckenridge, it was obvious that none of them really compared. Plus, this place is perfect for a wedding weekend for all our out of town guests. There is a hundred things you can do without even leaving the property.
The reception will be taken place at the Broad Ax Barn at Devils Thumb. Here is a photo:
And the ceremony will be outside:
And the date will be August 4th 2012! We put our deposit down 🙂
