Meaghan Lynch and Dave de L’Arbre of Aspen tied the knot on Saturday, July 24, at T-Lazy-7 Ranch, a setting near and dear to the bride’s heart. Meaghan had lived at T-Lazy-7 for a few years with her best friend Besha Deane whose family owns the 80-plus year property. “Also my grandfather was a friend of the Deane family when he lived in Aspen in the 50s so it all came full circle,” Meaghan added.

The afternoon ceremony took place in the grassy meadow with views of Pyramid Peak and Jeff Hanle as the wedding officiant and a wedding party comprised of the happy couple’s family members. Joining the bride’s three brothers and her sister were the groom’s two sisters and his brother-in-law. Rounding out the group was a trio of flower girls – the two nieces of the groom and the 85-year-old grandmother of the bride who served as flower girl of honor (and also was the talented painter whose artwork was featured on the invitations and program).

During the ceremony, five-year-old flower girl Bonnie Boyd stole the show with her reading of the poem “An Awesome Book of Love” by Dallas Clayton along with Eric Theile who is a close friend to the groom.

After exchanging vows, the newlyweds led all to the lodge for an outdoor cocktail hour followed by dinner and dancing in the dining room. To kick off the dance party, Meaghan and Dave invited their parents to the dance floor to twirl together. “Our parents have a combined 75 years of marriage and truly are our role models,” added Meaghan. Cheers to the happy couple and a happy life together.
