Southwest Wedding Bazaar: Photographed by Durango Photographers, Part 2

This is Part 2 of the blog post covering the South West Wedding Bazaar that I, the talented Durango Photographer (haha) photographed. You can view Part One here.

This was the first Wedding Bazaar put on by Meg Roberts, who is a wedding planner and owner of Bride + Tribe here in Durango CO.  There were three weddings that were all staged – one of the couples has been married for 9 years, the second couple has been together for 6 yrs but have no plans to get married, and the third couple has been together for a few years, and might get married at some point. That’s the couple I will be showing you here.

Their names are Kytt and Casey. Kytt works for Durango Nursery and Supply, and Casey works for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. They were full of fun and energy and were very photogenic!

Their wedding ceremony was held right next to the lake at River Bend Ranch.  Unfortunately, water had not yet been released to fill the lake, but it will be soon. It’s a beautiful location to get married! When the officiant, Scott Perez, asked the crowd if anybody objected to this marriage, he pulled his coat aside to make sure they saw his gun and he was ready to pull it out – that was hysterical. Luckily, nobody objected.

The flowers, which were blowing in the wind, were supplied by April’s Garden Weddings and they were just gorgeous. I just love the flower arrangement (sort of like a lei) that Casey wore around his neck.

After the ceremony we took them to the dock, which I think looks kinda cool with the red from the mountains in the background reflecting in the water. I asked Kytt to pick up Casey and their pose was so awesome. I love it when unexpected things like that happen.

One of the cozy set ups at the ceremony site involved some blue velvet couches and chairs along with an old fashioned trunk, so we absolutely had to utilize those for photos. Kytt and Casey were game for anything, so I had them put on their sunglasses and give me the “I am so cool” look. Of course, they had drinks provided by Toast Mobile Lounge, which is a necessity for any outdoor wedding or event, so I had them toast each other.

River Bend Ranch has some gorgeous bushes and trees (not all of them had leafed out yet). They make lovely backgrounds when the sun is setting over the mountain. Kytt and Casey are so comfortable together and show their love in genuine ways.
