Winter Devil’s Thumb Ranch Elopement | Jamie and Chesley

Jamie and Chesley have been together for 17 years and though they committed to each other a few years ago, they never had a legal wedding.

After much deliberation about what they really wanted for their wedding day, the two of them settled on a romantic, intimate, Devil’s Thumb Ranch Elopement in the snowy mountains of Colorado.

They rented a cabin at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, invited only their closest family and friends, and said “I Do” by the fireplace in a cozy indoor ceremony.  And it could not have been more perfect.  From start to finish, Jamie and Chesley reveled in the moments.  From lighting the unity candle to their dance celebration after their first kiss, the room was fill with emotion and pure joy.

They even brought their beloved dog, Ravi, with them and decked him out with a flower crown (which he promptly tried to eat).

After the ceremony, we ventured out into the snowy forests for photos with their guests before taking the time to wander the trails together.  They were goofy, full of laughter and happiness, and so excited to be legally married.

Jamie and Chesley, it was an honor to be present at your ceremony and I wish you years of happiness and joy in your continued life together.
