From Kristin SweetingI loved putting together this shoot to show two different bridal looks with the stunning backdrop of the mountains. Carol Hannah’s dresses are show stoppers and Park Floral put together the most beautiful bouquet. I also love seeing brides trying some different colors for their wedding day attire, and the blue in Oceane by Carol Hannah is the perfect subtle pop of color.

A Farm Wedding With a Big Dose of Color!

With the vision for a casual, “backyard chic” celebration, it’s no wonder Ragan and DeAndra chose a working farm as the backdrop for their Colorado wedding. We Tie The Knots came alongside the couple as they planned the details, including no shortage of whimsy, color, and style. Thanks to Connie Whitlock we’ve got an entire gallery ready to make your Friday so much sweeter. See it all here!

From the Bride… Ragan and I met almost 10 years ago at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. A love for the same band led to an effortless and unwavering friendship that took 8 years to blossom into the deepest love either of us had ever known or thought possible. The perfect progression.

After a Christmas proposal with the Eiffel Tower as the backdrop, we knew we had a hard act to follow. Having both grown up and lived all our lives in Colorado, we didn’t want to stray too far for our special day. The Farmette in Lyons, CO ended up being the perfect venue for our laid back, “backyard chic” vision. Being an active, working farm, the open layout fostered movement for our guests and provided a less structured setting. The fallen branch was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony and the reception space was large enough to compliment farm table seating, food trucks, and an open fire S’mores station.

The overall color palette accomplished by my floral designer and wedding planner was, undoubtedly, one of the most exceptional components of the day. Going into the design process, never before have Ragan and I felt so out of our element! It was in that moment that we made the decision to let them run with it all and were we ever so glad we did.

There were so many special touches that will always hold a place in our memories. The invitation suite, beautifully designed and created by Ragan’s cousin who owns Steracle Press in Chicago, set the stage for the overall feel of the wedding. The reclaimed wood escort card stand handmade by my father was awe-inspiring and immediately grabbed the attention of arriving guests. A handkerchief that belonged to my great grandmother and a pin of my grandmother’s tied to my bouquet not only fulfilled my old, borrowed and blue, but also served as a symbol of their presence on the big day. Our favorite bluegrass band, Rapidgrass Quintet, kept the ceremony light and fun and carried the jovial feel of the evening from cocktail hour through dinner. Homemade, lavender-infused honey from the Farmette thanked our guests for attending while glow sticks and sunglasses took the DJ and dancers late into the night.

We’re so fortunate to be able to say that we had our dream wedding. It was truly our version of perfection, exemplified. We couldn’t have been luckier to have a more supportive and talented team there to guide us along the way and execute it impeccably. If there’s any advice I can give for future brides, it’s to make sure you have a good, overall vision and then to assemble a team you trust and let them do what they do best. Throughout what can be a stressful time, be sure to enjoy the process; all of it.

From the Bride Whitney… We are that couple that met in a bar but ended up with a happily ever after! We shared some tequila and the rest is history. I can attest to the old saying, absence makes the heart grow fonder as we started our relationship overseas and it was over Skype dates, a twelve-hour time difference and longing to be back together that sparked our love. Our first date was when Eric came back to the states for one of his best friend’s weddings. We were inseparable ever since.

A few years later, Eric took me on a summer trip to one of his favorite places, Telluride, where he proposed at the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls…swoon! Having been born in Colorado, we visit often and it has always had a special place in our hearts. We knew right away a mountain wedding was a must!

Planning a wedding in Colorado while living in Florida required a relaxed and carefree attitude. We actually booked our wedding venue without ever seeing it in person! I was very lucky to have found the venue, our phenomenal photographer and exceptional florist on Instagram. I put all my trust in my vendors and let the experts take over. This gave results better than I could have imagined and definitely made things much easier for me.

We wanted our guests to feel relaxed yet be awed by an extravagant experience. We envisioned a dreamy, romantic and chic boho vibe. We chose to go with shades of neutrals and incorporate some natural elements. As everyone who knows me is aware I have an absolute love for lavender so we enjoyed including it into our decor, using fresh sprigs on our place settings, creating a signature lavender infused cocktail and designing a crate of dried lavender to hold our escort cards. The florals were soft with pops of color to keep a fun summer feel. I gave full rein to our florist and she put together incredible bouquets with an assortment of florals that were even accented with fresh mint! She also made a stunning hair piece that really complemented the style I was looking for.

The most memorable part of the wedding for us was writing and exchanging our vows in front of our dearest family and closest friends. The dinner was exquisite with four courses and complemented by some incredibly funny and heartfelt toasts! The party carried on as the band rocked the dance floor late into the night. We chose to take a special moment together at the end of the evening. As the guests were lining up outside for our exit we shared one last dance together, just the two of us, to Lover of the Light by Mumford and Sons. It was as if everything went into slow motion. It was such an incredible way to take in all the delight of the day. Our wedding was more magical than I ever could have imagined. It rained for almost two straight days before the wedding but hours before the ceremony it cleared and made for the most mystical backdrop as the clouds filled the mountaintops.

To anyone currently planning, start early if possible, absolutely get a planner, and let go completely of any expectations once the day arrives. It truly will be the best day ever!
