I just got some great photos from a wedding of former staff members, and it got me thinking. There are so many couples who met at Vista Verde as staff, who have now turned into wonderful marriages. What is it about this place? Between romantic honeymoon vacations, surprise engagement getaways and couples rekindling the flame over long winter weekend stays, Vista Verde does seem to have something going on in the romantic destination department. But, it doesn't stop with the guests coming to our luxury guest ranch. In fact, there is a pretty big track record of this place being a meeting spot for young folks who work at the ranch, who find a spark here, and then go on to get married down the road.
To start off, we should all send a huge congratulations to Stacy and Daniel Knapp, whose wedding this past weekend was beautiful. The two of them worked at our Colorado dude ranch a while back. What was fun to hear about is that there were several other Vista Verde alumni included in their wedding. Jess, Kimmie, Cliff and Lindsey were all in attendance, and a very special part of the event. We wish all the best to the Knapp's in their marriage, and hope the Vista Verde magic continues to make it a wonderful relationship.
So, be careful if you choose to come to Vista Verde. If you weren't looking for a romantic resort getaway, you might just end up with one. If you work at the ranch, you just might end up with a spouse down the road. If you come to the ranch as a guest, there is a good chance you will find the spark rekindled with your loved one. And, if your boyfriend brings you on a trip here…..watch out for those romantic rides up to the Cliffs. You might find something sparkly on your finger by the time you get back to the ranch.
