We were published in Rocky Mountain Bride a few weeks ago!  Check out this awesome write up about our Piney River Ranch shoot!

Piney River Ranch is home to some of Colorado’s most beautiful mountain vistas, and in collaboration wonderful vendor team, we had the chance to really show off what a rustic and romantic autumn wedding could look like here! Haley Hyman with Platinum Weddings and Events designed and conducted the entire shoot. She had an idea of how she wanted it to look, but didn’t want to limit her vendors’ creativity. After all, the goal was to really showcase what each of these wedding professionals can do. The models, Mary and Trask, are an actual couple that are tying the knot next year! Their dog, Sadie decided to join in, and the pictures were just beautiful. We went with purple hues, creams and greenery for our color palette, and the result was almost magical!”
