Farm-Fresh Outdoor Colorado Wedding | Elizabeth and Matthew

By, December 09, 2015

We were delighted to photograph Elizabeth and Matthew’s wedding at The Lyons Farmette. This rustic venue is next to the town of Lyons, Colorado, just east of Rocky Mountain National Park. The property is surrounded by beautiful cottonwood trees, rolling fields, and a tranquil stream.

In addition to hosting beautiful weddings, The Lyons Farmette is also an organic farm and education center. As you would expect, the gorgeous outdoor environment was the perfect location for this energetic young couple to wed. Instead of a hotel suite, the property boasted a charming Airstream trailer, where the bride prepared for her big day. The charming reception site was enhanced by the presence of classic cars, barns, tractors, and farm animals, including Nigerian Dwarf goats :)

For added character, Tracey Eaton of True Blue Vintage Rentals placed antique furniture throughout the venue. The wedding was flowered to precision by Flowers Forever Design. There were countless environmental props for us to use, which led to fun and distinctive photos of their day. We hope you enjoy this Rocky Mountain Wedding full of beauty & fun!

When we photograph a first look, like the one above, we aim to capture the moment in a discreet and romantic spot. We then take a step back and capture all of the emotion as it unfolds.
