Maggie and Brian’s Guyton Ranch Wedding in Jefferson, Colorado

Truly, I don’t think we can share our love and adoration for this amazing couple and their perfect Guyton Ranch Wedding day in just one blog post. My apologies in advance if this post is all over the place with lists of reasons we love these two! We first chatted with Maggie and Brian over the phone in early 2018. This couple was in for a big year! Not only were they planning their fantastic ranch wedding at Guyton Ranch in Jefferson, Colorado, they were planning a big move across the world to Hong Kong. We immediately knew we wanted to be apart of their special day and our instincts were right. They also met online, which as most of you know, is how Mike and I met, so we have a soft spot for these stories!

From the moment we arrived, the energy and excitement were contagious. Starting off the weekend with a game of kickball during their rehearsal dinner, the following morning was met with a basketball game at the ranch and corn hole. Maggie and Brian spent the day with loved ones and each other. Their first look was on the country front porch of this charming ranch, and was such an intimate moment to be apart of. During the ceremony, there was no music when Maggie came down the aisle…just the sound of laughter and sweet conversation between these two and their loved ones. Truly, the heavens opened up in this majestic place in Colorado as beams of light came down during their vows.

During their reception, we heard one of the most epic best man speeches. Brian’s brothers toast was hilarious, yet sentimental, with the perfect amount of humor added in. Their first dance, they sang to each other and danced the night away, both on the dance floor and out on a dirt road with us. Their dog, Sawyer, has played a huge role in their relationship, so it was wonderful seeing him at the ranch with everyone.

Honestly, we can’t say enough about these two! Maggie and Brian are adventurers at heart and have completely captivated us. Their next adventure is taking them across the world to Hong Kong. Why? No reason, other than they can and couldn’t think of a good enough reason not to take a job at a brewery there. People who don’t take themselves too seriously and grab opportunities as they present themselves inspire us and make us want to be better people. Seriously, can you tell we adore them?! Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Leslie! We are so excited for you and can’t wait to see where your marriage and love take you two. We love you guys!

Love,
Mike and Tay

How did the two of you meet?

“We met online in Houston, and quickly came to realize that we lived 5 blocks away from each other and frequented a lot of the same restaurants, bars, and parks. From then on, we frequented the same spots, but now together!”

Brian, how did you propose?

“We rented a cabin out in the woods for a long Thanksgiving weekend, and as we were roasting marshmallows around the campfire, {I} Brian got down on one knee and popped the question!”

How did you guys choose Guyton Ranch for your venue?

“We were looking for a wedding venue that would allow us to rent the entire facility for multiple events on the wedding weekend, and Guyton Ranch was a great fit. We had a barbecue and kickball game for friends and family the night before, and we had a beautiful mountain backdrop as we said our vows. It was perfect!”

What advice do you have for couples planning their wedding now?

“Two pieces of advice we got from friends and family:
1. Planning will take as long as you give it. If you want to plan things quickly, you can make it happen. If you give it two years, it will take the two years.
2. Enjoy the little things in planning–we had fun writing notes in some of the invites, made road trips out of visiting venues, and generally didn’t take anything too seriously.”
