Gorgeous Outdoor Wedding Shots From Ivy Benchek!

Updated: Sep 4, 2023

Getting photos back from the weddings hosted at Blue Coyote Ranch is one of my favorite things!!! These stunners are from the wedding of Angela and Jason, two Salida locals! Photos are all by Ivy Benchek - check her our for your next family reunion, branding shoot or wedding/engagement shoot!

This photo so perfectly captures this outdoor wedding to me! This couple and their friends and family were just so filled with warmth and joy - we loved meeting them all!

There is no better word for this than DREAMY!!!

I love how Ivy captured the pastoral look of our ranch along with the blue-pink mountain backdrop!

I also love the ranch wedding vibes in this one! Even better? That bouquet was 100% grown in Salida, CO by the amazing Phytology Flowers.

We are so flattered our ranch sign made it into the photoshoot!

This arch was made by a local artisan (Shavano Custom Logworks) from pine sources in Colorado.

We have gotten lucky on a few weddings with a rainbow popping up in the evening! One of the major joys of an outdoor reception in the mountains!

The outdoor wedding reception was perfect with an elegant tent rental from Settings Event Rentals, cafe lights and gorgeous table settings.

Another killer shot from this mountain view ceremony! Also hi to Moose, the sweet lab who was a perfect member of the wedding party. (Yes, we are dog-friendly!)

Our fire pit is one of the most popular amenities of our lodging/hotel! You can seat 18 people around the fire.

Cute shot of one of our favorite partners - Luna Libations! They can bring this adorable trailer to any outdoor venue to set up a professional bar service. They mix a mean cocktail too!

We can't wait to see the rest of the photos from Ang & Jason's wedding!
