September weddings have become increasingly popular in the past few years.
With temperatures staying in the 70s and rarely falling below 50 degrees in Idaho Springs, and the landscape providing crisp greens and yellows, we can understand why so many couples are starting to choose to get married in the fall rather than the summer.
Kim and Scott were one of those couples who took advantage of all September has to offer. During the 2018 wedding season up at Blackstone Rivers Ranch, fall had just begun to turn. Jackie Cooper, the photographer for this wedding, did a great job capturing this change for Kim and Scott to keep forever.
Fall time in the Rocky Mountains is absolutely stunning; you get the beautiful golden leaves of aspen trees all around you. Blackstone Rivers Ranch is a great place to feature these leaves as we have an aspen grove right behind our event tent, as well as aspens throughout the space.
Kim and Scott's intimate wedding gave the early fall space to glow. With Kim's oversized bouquet and the unique wildflower inspired arrangements done by Dashwood on the table, we can almost smell fall through these pictures. Florals are such a major part of a wedding, and you can tell by looking at these pictures, flowers were important to this couple. If you look closely you can see floral appliques along the bottom of Kim's veil.
Kim's veil and gown were breathtaking as they floated in the wind. In a few of the photos below you can see how the crisp color of her gown pops against the lush cliffside. Beyond the landscape, the gunmetal blue of the bridesmaids dresses allowed for the ivory of the bridal gown to pop.
This couple has a beautiful story and we appreciate them allowing us to be a part of it. Thank you, Kim and Scott, as well as all the vendors, that made it happen.
