As we post all of the fun Colorado weddings, we think how much of Colorado is farm country. That true ranch feeling of old west Colorado comes through in today's post about Amy + Aaron's wedding at the Stillroven Farm in Berthoud Colorado. As much as we love our mountains, I have to admit that this farm wedding looks pretty spectacular. A nice quiet day with all your best friends and family. That's what it's all about. If you're looking for an out of the way place for your wedding, then please contact us to learn more about how we can help you create an all-inclusive package of professional services and vendors that service the mountains, farms and ranches of Colorado. We specialize in destination wedding packages for Breckenridge and the mountain towns of Summit County, Colorado, but are quickly learning about other nooks and crannies around the state. Please check back for more fun blogs about these venues, real weddings and other local recommendations. Thanks!
This was a beautiful DIY Wedding! Amy and Aaron knocked it out of the park with the location and the decorations. I think the bride said it best though: "Nearly every element that went into our wedding had some personal connection or was crafted by us or our family. My husband and I are big on family and paying tribute to our ancestors. So many elements of the wedding reflected that. The vintage wooden crates that held our party favors was used on a farm my ancestors homesteaded when they came over on a boat from Germany in the late 1800s. The table we used during the reception belonged to my great grandmother. The linens on our wedding table were my grandmother's. The vintage suitcase we used for the cards was one my mom carried with her the first time she came to Colorado. We got engaged on my father's birthday and married on my grandmother's birthday. The list of significant personal meaning is long, and when we could, we tried to use things that tied to our family history rather than buying things new. Even though our guests might not have known the significance of everything, it made it feel like our ancestors were there with us on our wedding day and it was really special, because we knew." As for us, we are a two photographer team. Both of us started our careers in newspapers and still have a toe in that world. Now we cover weddings like a photo essay. We like to tell the story of the day from beginning to end.
