Sarah and Zach were married on a beautiful summer day at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle in Colorado. The day began with Sarah and her bridesmaids at a nearby hotel.
The couple shared a first look on the castle’s terrace facing the expansive mountain views.
Sarah shares, “Everything went fairly smoothly the morning of the wedding which was a relief. We were thrilled to get some light rain to clear up the smoke and smog that hung over Denver most of the week. This allowed our guests to enjoy the spectacular views that ranged from Pikes Peak up to the Flatirons in Boulder. We loved our venue because it is a beautiful property both inside and out. The Cherokee Ranch and Castle also has an amazing art collection that reminded us of one of our first dates where we bonded over the art history classes we had taken. We really wanted to showcase the full property by having the wedding in the courtyard, tours through the house during the cocktail hour, and then the reception in the tent where the pool once was.
We were so lucky to have our wedding surrounded by all our friends and family. With COVID, we knew we might change plans so the fact that most of our guests were able to attend and celebrate with us was a blessing. Some special moments were hummingbirds flying by the chuppah at the start of the ceremony, the mother/son and father/daughter dances, and when I dropped the cake during the cake cutting. We loved ending the night dancing and singing along to Don’t Stop Believing.”
Sarah and Zach picked the song Sound and Color by Alabama Shakes for their first dance. Sarah and her dad danced to What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong and Zach and his mom danced to an acoustic version of Simple Man.
Congratulations Sarah and Zach!
