I was so excited to photograph Diana and Daniel’s Devil’s Thumb Ranch wedding located in Colorado. It was like being with friends. These two stole my heart from the very beginning and I was so excited that their wedding was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings!
Here is the wonderful story about their wedding used from Martha Stewart:
When Danny joined the Penn State cheerleading team in the summer of 2011 with the promise (admittedly) of meeting girls, he didn’t know that one of those girls (Diana!) would become his future wife . The pair became stunt partners and developed a connection throughout their college years; when Danny graduated before Diana, he vowed to never let more than a couple weeks pass without visiting her. “He kept that promise, and here we are eight years later!” says the bride.
In June 2017, the couple was living in Denver, Colorado, and Danny’s family was in the Rockies for the summer. He’d planned a special weekend getaway at a cabin in the woods for the entire group to enjoy. Both avid hikers, Danny and Diana took a detour to the cabin to take their pup, Leo, on a walk. Ten minutes into their trek up Mayflower Gulch on Colorado’s Ten Mile Range, Danny felt that the right moment had finally arrived. He asked Diana if they could stop to take a picture against the scenic mountains, to which she agreed. He set his phone up on a rock, set the self-timer, and as he walked back, dropped to one knee. As for what was said after he popped the question? They only remember a chorus of “Of course!” from Diana.
The couple headed back towards their original destination, and on the way, Diana called her dad and step-mom to tell them the great news, which they, of course, already knew was happening. She did, however, get a better surprise just moments later: Danny had flown in her mother, step-father, and sister to celebrate. “We all shared a weekend of excitement, happy tears, and taking turns trying on the ring,” says Diana.
While the couple originally planned to tie the knot on the East Coast, they struggled to find a venue that fit their vision. They soon realized that they’d already found their dream locale: On June 8, 2019, before 110 guests in Tabernash, Colorado, they married at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, against the same mountainous backdrop of their engagement—which was, ultimately, the best spot for their bohemian-meets-modern wedding.
