Real Wedding: Nicole + Ethan :: Intimate + Sweet Colorado Wedding with Bold + Graphic Details
From the bride -
After all of the planning and preparing, our wedding turned out to be a complete reflection of us as a couple, and the devotion of people we're loved by.
Most of our guests were coming from out of state, and our biggest priority was giving everyone a little taste of Colorado. The Farmette was the perfect little spot tucked away in the foothills, and close enough to RMNP for our guests to adventure during their stay. If you've ever spent anytime in Colorado, you know that it's pretty much sunshine 24-7—however, that wasn't the case the week of our wedding. It basically poured all week, and things were looking pretty dreary throughout the wedding day, until about halfway through our vows, the sun came out and it was pretty much the happiest unplanned moment I could have imagined.
We're both really creative people, and wanted a lot of the little details to be hand-done by us. So a lot of our weekends were spent hand painting signs and pouring concrete (yes, concrete) to make little candle votives for our guests to take home. We chose food trucks because we wanted to give our guests the chance to choose what they wanted in the moment, and a more laid-back 'catering' experience than most weddings. We finished the night off with lots of bourbon, dancing, and a campfire with s'mores to accompany it.
