You may not think of dude ranch and romance in the same thought. But, besides the fact that I could go on and on about how a dude ranch vacation can be a really romantic vacation option, this post is not about guests enjoying a romantic getaway. It’s about the staff. Yes, those of you who have been here love to try to figure out what couples might have formed over the course of a season. With a group of young people all living and working together as well as sharing a love of serving people and being in nature, how could you expect a little romance to flair up every now and then? Yes, we preach to our staff professionalism and to be very careful getting emotionally involved with someone who you work with so closely. But we also celebrate the wonderful pairings that have come out of the ranch romances.
This summer, we celebrated two more marriages of VVR Alumni. Earlier in August, Cliff and Lindsay celebrated their marriage in Indiana with some other ranch alums attending the wedding. And just last weekend Eliza and Brett tied the knot in Vermont, also surrounded by some dear friends from the ranch.
It’s so exciting to see these two couples stepping into the next phase of their lives. We wish them all the best in their marriages and their lives ahead of them. They have become part of a special group of people who have found romance at this Colorado dude ranch. I’ve lost track of the count, but it’s close to 20 couples, and the babies…..I couldn’t even begin to start counting them. VVR Alum couples, please share your stories and updates with us in the comments section. I know there is at least one baby due soon in Idaho, but maybe even more on the way elsewhere?
