Westcliffe, Colorado is one of the most gorgeous cities in the state! The range of mountains in the background of this picture of a bride and groom is called the Sangre De Cristos mountains. They are so dramatic, they make an amazing backdrop for photos of any kind, especially weddings.
These photos were taken at a beautiful almost 200 acre rustic ranch wedding venue at base of Gibbs Peak, called The Historic Pines Ranch. The owners are so wonderful to work with and you can also rent out the entire ranch at a very affordable rate for the entire weekend! Also, there are no time limits or noise restrictions since this venue is in such a remote location. Another great thing about this mountain wedding venue is that you can completely customize it. They actually have two amazing outdoor ceremony locations to choose from. Due to mountain weather restrictions, this ranch can only host about 10 weddings per, from Mid May to the end of September, so if you are interested, you should call them now!
