I am officially anointing this sweet wedding with the following awards: Cutest Flower Girls, Most Beautiful Hair and Couple Most Willing to Adapt to a Rain Delay. Because this is the type of wedding where a whole lot of awesome comes together and shines brighter than ever, despite a little bad weather. And that deserves a few trophies, don’t you think? See it all captured by Angie Wilson right here.
From Angie Wilson Photography… Mackenzie and Ryan were married at the Lyons Farmette, on a day that started out sunny and bright, turned dark and rainy mid-day, and by late afternoon, the skies were clear again (and stayed that way for the rest of the day!). Their wedding attire and décor wonderfully matched the warm country vibe of the Farmette. Ryan and the groomsmen wore cowboy boots, jeans, and vests in shades of brown. Bridesmaids wore boots and various styles of dresses in neutral shades. The bed of an old pickup truck served as the gift table, and the truck doubled as a great spot for photos of the pair later in the evening. Mason jars filled with baby’s breath hung from an old tree at the ceremony site. On the dinner tables were vases of simple flower arrangements, old coke bottles, burlap and tree stumps cut into small rounds. Tables were fittingly named according to farm animals.
Their ceremony was held in the lawn of the Farmette under an old fallen tree. Guests’ chairs were arranged on both sides of the tree, making Mackenzie and Ryan the center of the circle as they said their vows. While they had planned on a late afternoon ceremony, mother nature had other plans for them. Prior to the ceremony the winds picked up so guests took cover under the dinner tent while rain (and hail!) came pouring down. Mackenzie and Ryan were flexible and decided to serve a delicious BBQ dinner under the tent first. Right as dinner was finishing up the rain/hail stopped, the skies cleared, and it was time for the ceremony. Guests helped move their chairs back to the ceremony site, and Mackenzie’s brother (one of the groomsmen), helped wipe down the mason jars hanging from the tree.
The weather cooperated for the remainder of the evening, so guests were able to enjoy toasts, dancing and dessert under clear Colorado skies.
