A Rustic Wedding at Chatfield Botanic Gardens

From the bride, Bonnie: Our wedding was simple, rustic and classic. Since we had a lot of family coming in from out-of-town we wanted to show them the rustic charm of Colorado. The beautiful barn and the surrounding botanic gardens at Chatfield Botanic Gardens was our inspiration.

THE CEREMONY
We held our ceremony at the open air chapel (a cute gazebo). The ceremony was really simple and quick, we had a family friend as our officiant. Ben and I aren’t particularly religious, but we love Harry Potter so we had our officiant hold a Harry Potter book!

THE DÉCOR
Simple and rustic. We put together sunflowers and small daisies in mason jars for the centerpieces, and our moms made wine bottles with fairy lights. That was about it!

ADVICE
This is really hard to take and everyone says it but just step back every so often and remember that it’s a party you are throwing to celebrate your new life together. It should be fun! It shouldn’t be stressful.  Also, spend money on a great photographer. That is what you will look back on for the rest of your lives, no one will remember the food but you will always look at the pictures!

RECOMMENDED WEDDING VENDORS
Venue: Chatfield Botanic Gardens. The staff was so helpful and we didn’t have to worry about anything the day of. Plus, it’s so gorgeous and pretty reasonable priced as compared to other outdoor venues we looked at.

Rustic Meets Modern at Devil’s Thumb Ranch

A Rustic Meets Modern Wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch | Colorado Weddings Magazine

From the bride: We were married in a meadow with the mountains as our backdrop. We adorned the ceremony structure with clusters of sunflowers and a crystal chandelier. During the ceremony, one lonely cloud showed up and dumped on us so umbrellas were hastily handed out as we exchanged vows under the raindrops. Fortunately, as a bride, I was so happy to be getting married that I giggled instead of cried.
