Wedding in the Great Outdoors - by Blackstone Rivers Ranch

As we settle into colder temps we can't help dreaming about the beauty of a wedding in the great outdoors... there’s just something magical about it. And there's no better place than Colorado to find stunning settings that celebrate everything nature has to offer. Read on to see how our friends at Blackstone Rivers Ranch made Mara and Reece's outdoor wedding an event the newlyweds and their guests will never forget!

Wedding in the Great Outdoors

Here at Blackstone Rivers Ranch, we pride ourselves on being able to provide the comfort of an indoor event with the constant beauty of the Rocky Mountains outdoors. With weddings like that of Mara and Reece, you can see what being in nature can do for a wedding.

These two traveled from Council Bluff, Iowa to celebrate their day at this Colorado Event Venue. They purchased our White Label Package which gave them seven hours on the property. They got ready off the property and they did their first look somewhere mountainous.

Family is always an important part of wedding days, whether they're blood relatives or family-by-choice. Mara and Reece made sure to include both such loved ones in their day. They were sure to include the little ones as well. They had several flower girls, including two itty-bitties who laid back in a stunning wooden wagon decorated with lush greenery. The wagon included sweet signs that read, "Reece, Here Comes Your Girl!" and "Wait 'Til You See Her…"

They also tied family into the day by having Mara’s dad’s band perform. They played for the ceremony and the cocktail hour. Mara’s dad also performed during the reception. They rented a drum kit so he could play along with the music played by the DJ.

Events Etc. did a spectacular job with the florals for this event. They decorated the circular archway with a stunning arrangement with long pieces of vines and flowers of deep hues. They also did the amazing flower crown that Mara wore all night long. All these arrangements, including the lush ones set on each table, blended seamlessly into the lush greens that surround Blackstone Rivers Ranch.

This was such a fun wedding to host. These two were goofy but oh-so compassionate. They came to enjoy themselves, and they sure did with a mimosa bar featuring orange, pineapple, and mango juice. We are so pleased to have been part of such a fun-filled day. Thank you, Mara and Reece, for celebrating with us and with the great outdoors.
