A Fall Wedding at Blue Lake Ranch

 

It’s just starting to feel like fall here in Atlanta, so I can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than with this beautiful, fall wedding all the way from Blue Lake Ranch in Durango, Colorado. Just by looking at the photos, you can tell this couple is so sweet and have such a tender love. As the photographer said, “Chase and Amy’s ceremony was so genuine, and their love for each other is so apparent that we even teared up a little at their ceremony! Nothing in the world photographs so beautifully than a truly happy face.” And how about the bride’s breathtaking lace back dress? The delicate lace is so intricate and personal and filled with the most beautiful details. Be sure to visit our real weddings gallery for more images from this delicate lace outdoor wedding.

Purple Wedding Ideas

Typically purple wedding bouquets come off as cool (as in, cool colors) but this one gets warmed up with red-violet poke weed and antiqued oak hydrangea and sunset coral garden roses. Representing the purple-lavender family we see large garden roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, stock, butterfly bush, and vitex.
