They’ve actually been married for two years…
In fact they celebrated their second anniversary on the first night of the three-day weekend at Midnight Ranch. Back then it was tricky, other weddings, budget, and the timing just didn’t work out. So, wanting nothing more than to make their vows, they eloped under a waterfall. Knowing all along that they would throw a party back home to celebrate and appreciate their family and friends.
And, that’s exactly what they did! Y’all, maybe i’ve been listening to too much Drake, but there’s so much joy and happy tears in this post. These people, this place, this weekend. It was an incredible gift and honor to celebrate with our friends, Dan & Rachelle.
If you know Dan and Rachelle, then you wont be surprised to hear how kind and considerate they are. For their celebration, Dan and Rachelle booked the mountaintop cabins and grounds at Midnight Ranch near Clark Colorado. He spent weeks brewing beverages, and she sewed everyone’s attire. Dan even spun the yarn to wrap Rachelles bouquet from their alpacas. Together they worked tirelessly to create a weekend where their closest family and friends could come together, relax in the beautiful surroundings, and enjoy each other.
Truly, I dont think I’ve ever danced, laughed, or cried as much as I did during these three days in the mountains with friends. Coffee on the deck, sunset over lakes, midnight canoeing (while singing little mermaid, of course), dancing the night away, and witnessing two incredible friends profess their love = A weekend I will never forget!
Dan & Rachelle,
Thank you for letting us not only celebrate with you, but for letting us document it all too! Wyoming winters are a cold cold place, but friends like you make it all the warmer! Thank you for inviting us into your home and your lives, I honestly couldn’t imagine any more easy going, considerate, and FUN friends than you both. Together you two are making the world a better place and it’s a beautiful thing to witness. Here’s to many more adventures together!
Love & Appreciation, ~M …..& J too!
