Leila + Mo | Devil’s Thumb Ranch Elopement

Devil's Thumb Ranch Elopement

Leila and Mo’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch elopement embraced a beautiful July day in Colorado. With only their parents present, these committed their lives to each other. We were greeted by a heard of horses grazing the grounds after their vows, but the best surprise of the day was revealing the gender of their soon-to-be baby to their family. After their sweet and short vows, we all headed up to the deck of Devil’s Thumb Ranch to cut the faux aspen bark cake. The inside of the cake would reveal if they were having a boy or a girl. With all eyes on the cake knife, Leila and Mo sliced into the cake and served up a BLUE slice – these two are having a baby boy!

After taking time to hug, sign their marriage license and celebrate with their parents, Leila, Mo and I went off on our own adventure around Devils’ Thumb Ranch. They wanted a fun way to share the news with family and friends, so Leila had the awesome idea of smoke bomb pictures using blue smoke bombs. This was my first time using them, and we had a little bit of a learning curve with how hard you had to pull the string and making them work with the wind, but we made some magic happen.

Leila and Mo ended their day walking through the green fields of tall grass. The sky was insane with giant puffy clouds and colors that are unmatched with any sunset I’ve seen in Colorado. Enjoy all the small and big moments from the Devil’s Thumb Ranch elopement!
