Taylor and Brian's Wedding, Devil's Thumb Ranch, Tabernash, CO, Sept 13th, 2014 Big congratulations to Taylor and Brian, married on September 13th at Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colorado!

It's always a treat to photograph in such a wonderful location and extra special when you have a fabulous couple like Taylor and Brian!

We met them last year (see engagement photos) and had a beautiful time with the fall colors and their spunky dog, Hurley! Love Taylor's beautiful sparkling eyes and this couple's sweet and sassy spirit which made photographing them such fun. This day was done up right with attention to detail and treating their guests to a fabulous celebration!

Incidentally, Taylor and Brian were referred to us by Kara and Josh whose wedding we photographed at Devil's Thumb Ranch two years ago, and below is a portrait of them on their 2nd anniversary this weekend (it's the 9th one down)!!!

Here's a sneak peek of some select photos from Taylor and Brian's memorable day as we go through the thousands of images we shot.  Hope you are having a spectacular honeymoon guys!
