Man, it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged a wedding! I am excited to be here blogging again, especially for this wedding belonging to Ed and Jamie which was among my most anticipated for 2013 at the always incredible Devil’s Thumb Ranch. The reason for that is that after doing an engagement session for these two, I knew I was going to be with a really cool, fun, crowd.
But this is a LONG post with 92 images (I tried to edit them down, but it was hard!). So with that in mind, I want to just start with the pics!
Before we do anything, let’s meet the happy couple: Congrats, Ed and Jamie!
The first thing I look for when I arrive is not the bride or groom. I need to get to that dress while it’s still hanging!
And some cool black and white details. Not very often photographers feature a black and white photo of a flower bouquet!
OK! Meet the bride, Jamie (she’s on the right!) with her mom.
Devil’s Thumb Ranch, you always know how to represent this great state we live in! Winter in Colorado!
Jamie and her twin sister. 😉
I really enjoy black and white for winter shots and for candid moments…
Meet Ed, the groom!
Below is a card that Jamie gave Ed before the ceremony, featuring one of the engagement photos we got out at Red Rocks!

Back in the Yager House…
Time for a first look! Ed is looking pretty excited.
It was so dang cold that day, but sometimes it doesn’t even matter!
At our engagement session, I learned that Ed LOVES to dip his woman! And he’s good at it, too!
Ed get’s pinned by his mom…

When in Rome!
I snuck away to get some detail shots at the ceremony and reception site.
Side note: This is EXACTLY where I stood, just 14 months ago from when I took this photo! Yes, I got married at DTR as well!
I didn’t get the full story, but apparently, that’s a bullet lodged into the wood. Incredible the chance of sawing right through it!
One of my favorite little people shots EVER of the bring bearer and flower girls.
The guys are ready.
Some really thoughtful vows were spoken. I don’t have the exact words but I thought it was very cool when Ed promised to never let Jamie “take the easy way out, just because it’s easy”.
Time to get the party started!
Some Colorado old-west props…
I had to post this intro shot.
There was a slideshow playing with photos of Ed and Jamie’s lives. It made for a great opportunity to get some happy photos of the guests.
Champagne, a sign of toasts to come…
Father Daughter dance.
Congratulations, Ed and Jamie! Hope to see you both again, maybe with a new addition! 🙂
