Mishka & Eric were married at a beautiful lake near Grand Lake, Colorado. The Bar D-M Ranch is a small area off a dirt road, a few miles north of Grand Lake. This Grand Lake wedding venue features two cabins that’s designed to hold smaller wedding groups of 100 people or less. The main cabin has a full kitchen and living area with some smaller bedrooms and half baths. There’s an upstairs that’s accessible by an old windy stairwell. The upstairs area is where the reception and cocktail hour were held. The second cabin is where the guys got ready and is closer to the outdoor ceremony area that overlooks the lake. The guys cabin also has two levels with the same amenities as the main cabin, but just a bit smaller in size.
Since the cabins were close to each other, I was able to walk back and forth between them easily. I spent most of my time with the guys getting ready because I was allowed more access for their getting ready moments. During the ceremony, there was a cute, fun, moment where Eric pretended to misplace the rings. After a brief horrific reaction by Mishka, she and everyone had a good laugh. Throughout the day, I was able to get candid moments that showed all the happiness and love that was expressed at this wedding in Grand Lake.
