Their Story: "We met in college as we both attended to University of Tennessee at Martin on rodeo scholarships. We both love rodeo, horses, dogs, and outdoor things. We picked a small Colorado wedding for a number of reasons. His hometown is 5 hours from where my family is from and where we are both currently living. Therefore, it would not be fair to either family to have it in either of our hometowns. Our close friends also live-in different areas in which long distance travel would be required. I have never dreamed of having a big elaborate wedding with hundreds of people. I have always pictured having a small destination wedding with our closest family in friends. My main priorities for the wedding is to have great pictures with a beautiful mountain backdrop. We both love skiing and the mountains in general and did not want to do the normal beach destination wedding theme.”
Wedding Details: Just take a look at how Ben reacts to Kenzley in their sentimental first look! Not only that, they wanted to make their first-look private and special. So, into their microwedding plans, they incorporated a gift exchange between the two of them along with private vows. Oh my - what a way to start off their heartfelt wedding with country character (does their wedding make you think of Yellowstone?).

I've been planning weddings since 1995 when I moved to Colorado from Iowa. I cut my teeth at Keystone Resort in their wedding department, then then ventured on to planning corporate meetings. But, I kept helping friends and their friends with weddings starting my first full-service company in 2002 (yes - planned the big overwhelming ones). In 2012 with the birth of my son, values shifted and I decided to go small, intimate and meaningful. Please connect with me to make your dreamy, simple mountain wedding come true!
Behind the Scenes
Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of a micro-wedding day? Jaime L. Barba, one of our talented professional photographers, captured me at work from one of our May 2023 weddings in Boulder, Colorado. Enjoy! .... and yes, she does wedding-day content creation (a great alternative if you cannot afford videography) for couples as well as photography.
What is a wedding day content creator? It’s someone who is there on your wedding day taking pictures on a cell phone (or in Jaime's case, her professional equipement), documenting behind-the-scenes moments, capturing and telling stories, and delivering short-form media content of your wedding day in real-time.
