Abby wore a lace gown and waist-length veil, both made by her mother. Benj donned a classic black suit from Allen’s Clothing and black cowboy boots, a nod to his ranch upbringing.

The rustic summertime Colorado setting provides a backdrop of beauty
Fresh wildflower blooms and the rustic, natural beauty of the mountain setting at the Catamount Ranch & Club helped create this quintessential Colorado wedding. Homemade touches, such as the bride's gown which was made by her mother, added a warm, close feel to the day. "I originally fell in love with a designer gown, but had sticker shock when I found out how much it cost," says Abby. "My mom is a talented seamstress—she made all of my childhood dance costumes—so we decided we could make a similar gown ourselves."
