Welcome to Ivete and Chris’s wedding blogariffic wedding gallery! We caught a sneak peak of their destination mountain bike wedding when we saw their Sneak Peek image of them riding their mountain bike at Devil’s Thumb Ranch near Winter Park, Colorado. Join me today for the visual highlights of their whole day! These guys are good friends of mine in Boulder and I was psyched to spend the weekend with them . . . and get some trail time in myself!
We started getting ready at a rental house that was right on the Devil’s Thumb trail network, and was only a mile from the Ranch. Well, it was a mile by trail, but 10 miles by car! That’s what you call a literal real estate listing.
Nice color coordination on the matron of honor and bridesmaids dresses.
The outdoor ceremony location at Devil’s Thumb features a world class view. I think it’s probably my favorite that I’ve shot at so far.
Great expressions during the recessional that could be the root of a great facebook caption contest!
We took a break from friends and family time and headed out to create some photo magic on the stunning property at Devil’s Thumb. Earlier in the day, a group of us rode mountain bikes on the trail network at the ranch, and I had spotted this field of purple wildflowers. So we stashed the tandem mountain bike nearby so we could come back and get our ripping Sport The Dress on the tandem mountain bike photo. The other cool thing about the bike, is that in a previous life I was a mechanical engineer, and I actually designed some of the parts used on this particular Ellsworth bicycle!
After the biking shenanigans I spent some time taking bridal portraits of Ivete, who was looking absolutely stunning! After the flowers we headed over to the horse corral, as Ivete loves horses. Well, this particular horse loved Ivete, so much so that at this exact photo moment he was leaving a giant horse booger on her wedding dress! LOL. Well, now we can’t blame ALL the stains on the dress on the mountain bike!
Back at the reception and IT’S TIME TO PARTY!
Tandem bicycle cake from Tee and Cakes! Can you see a theme here
The reception started inside the tent, but the vibrant colors of a rainbow and then the mountain sunset eventually lured everyone outside. Hey, who is that in the background?
For the wedding entertainment, Frank Sinatra was in attendance. Well, OK, not the real Frank Sinatra, because that would have been freaky. But this Frank Sinatra was still quite the hit with the ladies!
Thanks for reading, riding, and rocking along with us!
