OUTDOOR WEDDING AND TENTED RECEPTION AT EATON RANCH IN VAIL

This Vail wedding at Eaton Ranch hit all of my happy buttons! Eaton Ranch is a gorgeous venue with unique backgrounds that make for truly original Colorado wedding portraits. From an immense grassy field that serves as a beautiful ceremony site to another vast area ideal for tented receptions, it is truly a jewel. This is definitely one of my favorite wedding venues in Vail to photograph!

Chris and Kelly grew up in Vail and share a love of the mountains, so it’s no surprise that they chose to have their wedding in this scenic locale. Together with Emily from Bella Event Design & Planning, they created an elevated summer wedding scene. Emily, who was named a top wedding planner by Brides magazine, did an amazing job creating the unique tepee-inspired ceremony backdrop. The team from Under the Sky also built several other tepee lounges around Eaton Ranch for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour. Don’t they look like a fun spot to mingle? Not only for kids, but also for adults!

EATON RANCH WEDDING DETAILS

I simply loved the look of this wedding. It was elegant yet cozy and welcoming…just like Chris and Kelly! Kelly carried a bouquet of white and green blooms that perfectly complemented her stunning Ines Di Santo wedding dress. Her body-hugging gown was made out of lace, and the off-the-shoulder style showcased her shoulders and elegant updo. The attention to detail was flawless and extended to their exquisite reception, too. I especially loved the way the navy blue table linens contrasted with the white floral centerpieces.

I experienced so many feelings on Chris and Kelly’s wedding day, and even shed some tears. Weddings can be emotional in the very best of ways, and when the couple is as beautiful inside and out as these two, it makes the experience of photographing them even more special! To see more of this gorgeous wedding day Chris and Kelly's wedding is featured on Amber and Muse today.
