Sunflowers peeked out from every corner of the Golden Horseshoe Inn, adding their cheerful charm to the reception room, ceremony deck and front porch.  This was going to be a flower filled, joyful summer wedding day!  We were so excited to host our beautiful bride Tasha’s wedding day to her sweet groom Kelly.  These two love the mountains, and nature, and camping (in fact they came to their wedding planning meeting straight from a camping trip!) and chose a wedding theme to reflect all of their favorite things.  Beautiful, but relaxed was the vibe they were aiming for, and it all came together beautifully for their afternoon wedding celebration!  Just before the ceremony began, Tasha and Kelly shared a first look in the bridal suite.  They then joined their guests on the wedding deck for an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony followed by light refreshments, lemonade, wedding cake, and a special whiskey toast!  I had fun taking photos of this gorgeous duo on the grounds of the venue and loved the special details they included, like an heirloom string of pearls, brand new cowboy boots, and a handmade wooden welcome sign.  I am so excited to share some favorite moments from this wonderful wedding day…

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
