In August we spent a weekend in Telluride for Chris & Lisa’s wedding at Gorrono Ranch.  Telluride in itself is one of the most remarkable places in Colorado and then there’s Gorrono Ranch.  Wow.  I knew Chris & Lisa, being the outdoor enthusiasts that they are, would choose a great place to reflect that fact but when we first set eyes on Gorrono our expectations were blown out of the water.  The San Juans tower over Gorrono Ranch in every direction.  Between the Ranch and the mountains are lush meadows, aspen groves and alpine forests for days.  It’s like having a little corner of the Rocky Mountains all to yourself.  Gorrono itself has all the rustic charm you would expect from a Colorado ranch turned restaurant.  Chris & Lisa, who would much rather spend their time outdoors than in, chose one of the most beautiful places in all of Colorado to exchange their vows outside, however Mother Nature had other plans for them.  A massive storm system that produced sheets of rain for hours on end forced the nuptials to be moved inside.  A crackling fire eased the disappointment and Chris & Lisa took it in stride.  Just as the sun was about to set, I peeked outside to see the clouds disappearing only to reveal a spectacular dusting of snow on the surrounding peaks.  Although all didn’t go quite as planned, it was an incredible day nonetheless.  I’ll be counting the days until our next wedding at this spectacular place.  Until then, take a peek at this drop-dead gorgeous Telluride wedding…
