White Owl Ranch Wedding | Sam + Nick

Have you ever been to the White Owl Ranch in New Castle, CO? I hadn’t either until Sam & Nick’s wedding a few weeks ago. What an incredible venue! Quaint, rustic and seriously breathtaking views of the Colorado River Valley. I’d definitely consider this place a hidden gem in the wedding industry! Sam and Nick had a few ups and downs when choosing a venue and I’m so tickled that everything fell into place for the White Owl Ranch.

The weather was not the most ideal and threw several curve balls our way but this couple handled it with grace and embraced the day for what it was. I personally thought the rain was an amazing addition and made for some EPIC photos with super dramatic skies and colors.

I am so delighted to have had the opportunity to photograph these two genuine people and be able to call them friends. It was a day for the books!

Congratulations, Sam & Nick!
