Piney River Ranch

Posted by pickmeweddings@gmail.com on October 8, 2015 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (1)

This past summer was one for the books.  Some of the most beautiful brides in some of the most amazing locations.  Jenni and Mike were married at Piney River Ranch on a sunny summer day.  Their daughter, Mary Jane, may have been the cutest little nugget ever.  She was full of smiles all day and happy to be outside with friends, family and her puppy.


I hope you enjoy these beautiful photos from Katie Corrine Photography

The Miranda's Say I Do at Keystone Ranch

WOW! what a beautiful couple Vanessa and Dale make.  I am pretty sure there will be some gorgeous grand babies in the future for these families.  


I had the pleasure of working with Vanessa and Dale as they planned their fall wedding in Keystone.  Vanessa is also a friend of a friend, so I felt like we had known each other for years when we met.  These two are so dang cute and just love to have fun.  The whole day was about friends and family and spending time with each other.  Vanessa and Dale didn't want to see each other before the wedding, but did want to spend time with each other's wedding party.  So Vanessa set it up so that she would spend time during the day with Dale's guys while he did the same with her girls.  I loved this idea and thought it was a great way to lock down friendships.


Keystone Ranch was the perfect backdrop for a mountain wedding.  With wide expansive views, historic cabin and great service I would recommend this venue to any outdoor enthusiast looking for a beautiful place to tie the knot.

And who doesn't love a little man in suspenders and glasses????....right?

The Gans-Intosh's Downtown Denver Wedding Day

Posted by pickmeweddings@gmail.com on December 15, 2014 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)


Kathy and Mark came to find Pick Me! through a prior client.  I was so excited when I first met Kathy, I loved how she was an independent career woman with so much energy and enthusiasm for life.  She and Mark had been together 10 years and decided to tie the knot.  The couple wrote their own vows and with all the weddings under my belt I had never heard someone say "I love your butt" in their vows!! 

Mark has long been a local sports caster in the Denver area and was the "go to guy" since Kathy travels most of the time with her career.  When Mark and I first sat down together it was fun from the start.  The one thing he insisted on doing was singing Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon" to Kathy at the reception.  So we planned a total "Rat Pack" themed wedding for him to do so.

Downtown Denver, since its home, seemed like the perfect place for the couple to say I DO!  The couple chose Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House, as it held that old school club feel.  Adding in a Sinatra tribute band, an Ice Cream Bar for dessert and one fabulous looking bride and groom and the night was set.  

Mark and Kathy are both big music fans and wanted music to be a big part of their wedding ceremony.  Kathy walked downt he stairs escorted by her nephew and step son to Stevie Wonder's Signed Sealed Delivered and the couple ended their ceremony reciting the first couple of lines to James Taylor's How Sweet It Is as the band played.  After dinner Mark took the stage to serenade his new bride into their first dance.  

Casey Wigatow from Two One Photography took the wedding party out on pedi-cabs for some quick photos before the wedding hitting up Coors Field, The Denver Zombie Crawl and the Curtis Hotel.  The colors of the day were just amazing!!!

Decor by Southern Charm Events set the stage for the that lounge look and feel.  Using lamps in place of flowers on some tables, autmun oranges and golds, and photos of old lounge singers from the 50's and 60's for table numbers helped create that Retro American Lounge feel for the evening.

Mark and Kathy, I wish you a life time of happiness and thanks for trusting your big day to me.

Best Day Ever!

Posted by pickmeweddings@gmail.com on October 15, 2014 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Ashley and Shae recently moved to Grand County from the Lone Star State to start a small business.  I love young people that are spirited enough to branch and take chance on something.  I met Ashley and her mom last winter and we started planning their wedding at a private rental home, just to find out we could not have the wedding there after all.  Thank goodness we were able to get them into Strawberry Creek Ranch and all worked out smoothly.

Ashley and Shae had an amazing wedding on a beautiful evening.  As the Super Moon came up in the east the sun was setting in the west.  Their BoHo Chic wedding was full of love and tons of laughs.  Everything read "BEST DAY EVER" What a great way to remind yourself that your wedding day is a good one regardless of what happens. 

Here are some photos from Micah Emily Photography and Carley Carpenter.  Enjoy!

Melissa and Mitchell

Melissa and Mitchell were married atop Granby Ranch on a beautiful summer afternoon.  I just love these amazing photos from Elevate Photography, beautiful flowers from Ivy Lane Floral, cakes from The Dessert Stand, signs by Saddle Shoe Signs.  Not to mention the mad tunes provided by Total Encore DJ's and fabulous photo booth by Ear2Ear.

Mixing just a touch of vintage with the pure mountain beauty of Granby Ranch made for a gorgeous color palet of light oranges, ivories and touches of light blue.  Melissa was one stunning bride on wedding day!  Have fun checking out these photos!



Nikki and Ryan's Strawberry Creek Ranch 9N Nuptials

Posted by pickmeweddings@gmail.com on October 15, 2014 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I've known Nikki for several years now and she has been a big help with the success of Pick Me!  When she finally got engaged back in the spring on an amazing vacation to Costa Rica she came right home and started planning as she knew she wanted to get married before hunting season or she would loose Ryan's intrest.  Nikki and Ryan grew up in Granby, CO and live just down the road a ways from the ranch.  It was the perfect setting for their down home shin dig.

Nikki kept it simple, sweet and all about her friends and family.  She and Ryan said their I Do's in front of the creek with fields of daisies surrounding them.  Guest mingled on the deck and in the barn during cocktail hour and danced under the stars.  

I wish Nikki and Ryan and lifetime of love and happiness.  Thanks for letting me be a part of such a special day for the two of you.


MUAH XXXOOOO


Strawberry Creek Ranch 9N~Granby Colorado

Posted by pickmeweddings@gmail.com on August 15, 2014 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I got a call last winter from a friend that I used to see at weddings all the time that worked for Devils Thumb Ranch, he said he had friends that were opening a new venue and had no experience with how to start.  The Neigbergers own Strawberry Creek Ranch 9N, a stunning ranch in Granby CO.  

The ranch has over 300 acres, a beautiful antique barn, ceremony and reception deck, large tent and plenty of tables and chairs for guest to use.  A group of amazing vendors got together and did a styled shoot this spring to showcase the beauty of the ranch.  Here are some of the photos and the gang that put it all together.

I have been friends wtih Janelle for almost 10 years now.  Can't believe its been that long.  When she told me she was getting married and needed a photographer, the first person that popped in my head was Casey Wigatow of Two One Photography.  Casey and Janelle are both full of spunk and fun loving ladies.  I knew they would get along great.  

These photos of Janelle and Micks St John USVI wedding prove that they are one in the same.  I am so happy to share these photos and so blessed to know both of these ladies and call them friends.  Anyone looking for an amazing photographer, you need to look up Two One Photography.

Here's to a lifetime of love and happiness Janelle, MUAH!

I have the coolest friends from all over the country!!!!! 8)
