There are so many details to capture your imagination in this gorgeous, rustic and whimsical woodland wedding from Colarado. The unique invitations, the ski lift (be still my beating heart!) and the fantastic log shed that provides an interesting focal point and background. And did I mention the bride wore cowboy boots?
All the details, big and small were captured by Aubrey Joy Photography (no relation, hehe), and bride Marcy is on hand to fill us in on all the unique specifics that make this wedding such a specticle.
“We spent the most time on our invitations – we have this great Japanese printmaking thingy called a Print Gocco. They are out of business but people are cultish about the awesomeness of this little device and keep it going for now. We used a lot of veneer from B&B Rare Woods in Colorado.”
The flower girls wore cowboy boots just like the bride, and they had the hand-made butterfly wings. “Homemade cootie catchers kept the kids occupied during dinner, and we had things like: ‘Kiss the Bride’, ‘Hug Grampa John’ written inside. The kids also were enthralled with the guest book table.. we had an old typewriter, water color pencils and book, and a card box with all the homemade drawings we had received from the kids leading up to the wedding.”
“We also made a lot of things from fallen trees on our property: the cake stand, signs, a teepee for the kiddos, table names… We bought a burnishing tool and burned letters into everything. Even our hangers for suit & dress… everything smelled like a campfire.”
You would expect such an eco-aware couple’s choice of wedding venue would be significant for them, and you’d be right. The wedding took place in Colarado. “We wanted to drag everyone to this beautiful part of the world, knowing they may not see it otherwise. Instead of leaving right after for a honeymoon, we camped and adventured with whoever could stay longer. It was nice to have that relaxed time with everyone, and we lovingly refer to it as our Muddy Honeymoon.”
