Deer Creek Valley Ranch Wedding, Bailey, CO | Brandon + Bailey

This is the story of “a gaper from Nebraska who met a beauty from California”…

First off, you know people trust & believe in your craft when they Skype with you and book you at nearly 32 weeks pregnant with twins! That was the case of Brandon & Bailey, who met while both working at Loveland Ski Area years ago, but now reside in Pocatello, ID. The Colorado mountains held a special place in their story and was the perfect meeting point & ceremony site for their families from other states to gather for their wedding.

The clouds darkened as the ceremony time approached. We all huddled on a platform in the middle of the gorgeous meadow that sits near the prominent Mount Evans at Deer Creek Valley Ranch. As soon as the ceremony time arrived & it began pouring on us all. I remember wondering what must be going on in the tent where Bailey was patiently waiting out the weather. Finally, 30 minutes later the sky let up and these two finally got to say their vows! If either Brandon or Bailey were anxious, all that went away as soon as they saw one another. You could see the relief & happiness in their eyes.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest. Congrats Brandon & Bailey! I’m grateful to have been a part of your beautiful day.

    I love that Bailey got married in Bailey (my hometown to boot). There is something about the quality of light in Bailey on a stormy afternoon that makes everything so bright and vibrant in a dreamy way. Might be my favorite light on the planet! And you made the most of it with these gorgeous favorites. Everytime I scrolled down I thought "That's my favorite, no wait, that one." Amazing work Haley!
