From their photographer, Ashley of Ashley Kidder: Katie Jo and Wes were married this past fall at one of Colorado's most stunning venues — Crooked Willow Farms! I was so thankful to be included in their day as their photographer. Katie Jo was incredibly attentive to the detail of the wedding day, and she collaborated with Kendra Kimball of Tandem Events to help bring her wedding vision to life. Her favorite thing to design was the pergola for the ceremony, which featured antlers and gorgeous floral from Kimball Floral. She also had antlers and wine barrels at the ceremony, marking the end of the aisle. The colors she chose for the wedding fit the time of the year effortlessly, sage green, light grey and a splash of fiery reds + oranges, and everything that she incorporated into the theme came together perfectly. Her bridesmaids wore cowboy boots, and the groomsmen along with matching Broncos socks did as well. The reception decor was nothing short of amazing. Tall floral installations blended with lower box rows of floral for the centerpieces, with candles and antlers sprinkled about to tie in that rustic charm. If Katie Jo had to switch careers to become a wedding planner, I'd say she'd do incredibly!

From the bride, Katie Jo: “My favorite part of the wedding was enjoying all the fruits of our labor. It was great to walk out of the bridal suite and see everything we had planned put into action. The decor, the food and drink, everything that went into the event. The blood moon that happened that night was also pretty special.”
