Returning to your childhood stomping grounds is always a nostalgic experience. However, when you return with your soon-to-be husband, family, and friends for your wedding day, it’s an even more incredible day! Lilly and Tim had one of the most memorable and sincere weddings at her folks ranch in Crawford, Colorado. After their beautiful ceremony at The Lodge at Needle Rock, everyone headed down the dirt road to her parents house where we all celebrated this amazing couples marriage. It was truly an honor to be a part of this time with you both, Lilly and Tim. Thank you so much for having us be there with you to document your awesome wedding day!

• Tell us about planning your wedding at your folks house. What inspired an awesome backyard wedding? “I loved it because we were able to make everything our own and exactly how we wanted it. It was probably more work than a set venue but also so much fun and so meaningful to both of us. We both have so many fun memories together there so it just seemed obvious to do at least part of it on the ranch. Nothing was laid out easy for us, but all our friends and family stepped in to set it all up. All of our vendors were awesome too and came from all over the state. We really couldn’t have pulled it off without them. One of my favorite parts about having it at the ranch was being able to craft and make it our own with specialty pieces and top it off with so many beautiful flowers! For instance making the bar was so fun because it was all wood from my grandma’s old barn that Tim and I got to refinish. And then my mom and I stained it and our family friends made us a beautiful sign and metal top for it, so it really became a community effort to make it all work and made Tim and I feel so loved from all the help we received!”
• Are you going on a honeymoon? If so, where are you going? “We just got back! We went to Antigua for a week! It was the best decision to do it right after because we got a chance to spend the first week we were married just the two of us and slow everything down!”
