A River Bend Ranch Wedding


A Durango, Colorado Wedding Venue

Halie & Alex

What a fabulous venue for an outdoor wedding. Halie and Alex couldn’t have picked a better place. The large outdoor dance floor, the spectacular view of the Red Cliffs, and beautiful barn were only a few of the highlights. We’re often asked what the best wedding venue in Durango is, this is definitely one of them. Plus it’s affordable.


Getting Ready

The Bridal Suite is absolutely beautiful at the Ranch. Big uninterrupted white walls and plenty of mirrors make this a dreamy spot to get ready and take some excellent photos. Halie and her bridesmaids had plenty of fun while Sarah York from ReyLynn's was doing hair.


The Boys

Alex had a great group of friends for groomsmen. Friends made from different stages of his life. They were plenty of fun. Alex even joined the band on stage during the reception to play some music with his buddies.


The Ceremony

Located in the yard right outside the barn with the lake and mountains in the background, this is a perfect outdoor venue not too far from Durango. Halie’s father, a minister, put together a beautiful ceremony that fit Halie and Alex’s style wonderfully.


The Couple

These two were so obviously in love. A typical Durango couple that loves to mountain bike together, spend time hiking in the mountains and of course indulge in good music, dancing, and fun. That’s why the River Bend Ranch was the perfect venue for their wedding.


The Reception

We can’t imagine having any more fun. When Hannah and I were finished photographing the wedding, we wanted to stay and hang out with everyone. The band ‘High Country Hustle’, was twangy and fun, making everyone want to dance. There are plenty of options for wedding catering in Durango and Back Porch BBQ is never a bad choice. The food was incredible and obviously the scenery wasn’t too shabby either.
