Katya and Bart’s River Bottoms Ranch Wedding

My first time at River Bottoms Ranch for Katya and Bart’s wedding didn’t disappoint! Loved ones traveled in from the east coast to enjoy the mountains and celebrate them. Their goldendoodle pup, Noodle, even made the journey and walked the aisle! Their wedding was everything classic and lovely while still feeling like a relaxed party. Their ceremony was emotionally charged and afterward they all really let loose and celebrated hard. We stayed to document the after party and honestly didn’t want to leave.

My favorite part happened toward the beginning when Katya’s friend, Yael, guided the bridal party in meditation. the intent was to energize and nurture Katya and in return, she wanted to give back to them for their love and support. Everyone in the wedding party had the opportunity to sit across from Katya and give her a blessing, good vibe, wish, etc., and Katya gave them one right back. I loved hearing her welcome her wedding party to ask for something they needed in their own lives. It was such a selfless act of love the morning of her wedding that set a lovely mood for the rest of the day.
