Imagine two foodies working at the same restaurant, one in the front of the house and one in the back of the house. Imagine them falling in love while moving around the country for various high profile restaurant jobs. Now, imagine their wedding, what does that look like? Their Colorado farm wedding looked like an enormous dinner party for all of their family and friends, under bistro lights in an alley of trees at Milston Well Farm. It showcased their laid back personalities and exquisite style perfectly.
Guests were greeted with bubbly the minute they got off the shuttle, and enjoyed it before the ceremony started on the front lawn of the Honeymoon House. Cocktail hour included a killer crudité platter and plenty of libations, as an acoustic band provided background music. The family style dinner started just before sunset at one long table with farm to table food provided by Black Belly. The wine and speeches flowed through dinner with plenty of laughter and a few tears.
Dessert of ice cream was provided by the Sweet Cow food truck throughout the evening. Eventually the crowd started gettin’ down on the dance floor in the teepees. The groom tore it up with both his mom and the bride’s grandmother. It was awesome! All of this was coordinated thanks to the help of Root and Gather Events.
After this farm dinner party extravaganza was over, the bride and groom sent me this nice note: “Thank you for the thoughtful gifts throughout this process – seriously – you are so kind! We simply cannot have envisioned anyone else being part of our wedding day. We are so excited to see your shots but we both just wanted to say thank you for going above and beyond and making us feel like family.”
As if that was not enough, once I delivered the wedding photographs, the mother of the bride sent me this: “… forwarded the slideshow to me. It is a TOTAL DELIGHT!!!! Just fantastic. It made me laugh AND cry. You totally captured THEM. And this special moment in time. … You have taught me, through this journey together, what a vital role the photographer plays in all of this. I am thrilled you were the one to tell Hope & Charles’ (and our) story.”
This is what an ideal Colorado farm wedding looks like in my world. Are you planning a Colorado farm wedding? I know just the people to help you.
