October Mountain Wedding at the Ranchstead Inn // Allenspark, CO


Bride and groom pose in front of yellow aspen trees at Ranchstead Inn in Allenspark, CO

October was the perfect time of year for Laura and Matt's mountain wedding! The Ranchstead Inn at Rocky Mountain Pathways Ranch in Allenspark, CO might be my new favorite outdoor wedding venue in Boulder County. There's a gorgeous, open mountain meadow with stunning views of Mount Meeker, and the yellow aspen leaves were peaking, making for a perfect fall backdrop.


All in all, it was a perfect day. Congratulations, Laura and Matt!
