Cary and Sara
Lost Creek Ranch
September 1, 2007
Sara and Cary got married last weekend at a gorgeous log cabin outside of Silverthorne. Their families rented this enormous house and stayed there all week, enjoying the surrounding mountains. Sara had always wanted to get married in the mountains, and this location was perfect! They even had a field of wildflowers next to their ceremony site, and then a beautiful sunset to end the evening.
Lost Creek Ranch is surrounded by mountains and flowers!
Cary’s dad, before the ceremony
The bridesmaids’ dresses looked beautiful against a backdrop of blue mountains.
Their good friend performed the ceremony. What a wonderful honor to give a friend.
They had a Polaroid guestbook at the entrance to the wedding, so I couldn’t resist a fun camera toy. I don’t recommend that other photographers do this during ceremonies, though; I learned the hard way that Polaroid cameras are loud!
Cary kept fidgeting with his new ring throughout the evening.
The ring bearer (Sara’s nephew) got that tuxedo nicely messed up.
This little girl was a rapt audience for the band during the cocktail hour.
Sara is a gifted graphic artist, and she designed these party favors filled with flower seeds.
I thought it was a perfect prop for a ring shot.
Dinner took place in a tent with a view of the mountains…
… but several people migrated to the ceremony site to watch the sun set over the mountains.
Here’s Cary’s brother, revealing some of Cary’s embarrassing dietary secrets during the best man toast.

Sara’s nephew cuddles with his mom, while his dad gives a toast in the background.
They had a great band, The Motet. They describe their style as afro-beat, indie, and electronica. The crowd loved them!
The venue was so much fun! The lodge had a pool table, ping pong table, and even skee ball!
How amazing is this cabin?
This is a 30-second exposure, with the horizon lit by the full moon, and the foreground lit by the light in the tent behind me. The high-res version of this file is gorgeous. You can see so many stars in this photo that I couldn’t see in real life! It was a perfect night.
