Jessica and TJ hosted their weekend-long wedding at the C Lazy U Ranch in Granby, CO. "We wanted a multiple-day affair so that our guests could really get to know one another," says Jessica. The majority of the couple's 220 guests arrived at the ranch on Thursday evening. Jessica and TJ kicked off the weekend with a hoedown-themed welcome party. On Friday, guests participated in a field day event, followed by the rehearsal dinner and a poker tournament. The wedding was held on Saturday. Jessica wore a custom-designed dress by Atelier Des Modistes in San Francisco and carried a bouquet of roses, anemones, sweet peas, and thistles. The reception was held inside the ranch's horse arena. "We wanted the reception to have the feel of a sophisticated country affair," says Jessica. "The dirt floors and picnic benches, combined with the lights and draping above, turned the show barn into a fabulously chic backdrop."
