It Takes A Village— And Kathryn + Jake Have one | Private Property - Lander, Wyoming | Wyoming Wedding Planner

When we first chatted with Kathryn, she explained her ideal wedding day to us, held on a beautiful piece of private property in one of their favorite little towns (and the one they call home)— Lander, Wyoming. Kathryn + Jake had the vision to bring 200+ of their closest friends and family to this remote spot in Wyoming so they could share in the fun, funky small town vibe of Lander. (if you’ve never been….go visit. It’s awesome). They wanted to celebrate their first day of married life together over great food and drink and a seriously great dance party surrounded by the people they love most.

Given the beautiful and somewhat remote location (think lack of cell service, no power or water access, etc), this wedding was going to take a team of amazing vendors and friends pulled from all over the state and beyond. Luckily, Kathryn + Jake had ‘em! With the help of Wyoming Tent & Event Supply, Bistro Catering, Dandelion Farms, and an army of K+J’s more-than-willing crew, this stunning private ranch was transformed into the most perfect wedding venue.

We were amazed at the sheer awesomeness of Kathryn + Jake’s friend group. Throughout the wedding weekend, they would show up lending a hand with the array of tasks presented to them.— lining a 1/2 mile stretch of dirt road with luminarias, setting up 200 chairs in the middle of a field, or showing up in full force to surprise Kathryn + Jake with one of the best flash mobs we’ve ever seen.

Wyoming’s weather can be just as temperamental as Colorado’s weather; the Fall day started off sunny and warm. By the start of ceremony, Wyoming brought a little wind to the party but the weather held out while Kathryn + Jake exchanged their vows. As the rain started to fall, guests cozied into the tent and were greeted with margaritas and appetizers to warm them right back up. As cocktail hour continued, the sun reappeared and a huge rainbow filled the Wyoming sky. Kiddos ran around in the grass playing while the adults mingled and chatted over drinks and stories of recent adventures.

We loved the natural design elements that Kathryn + Jake incorporated into their day as well. The tent was filled with long rows of inviting wooden tables. The handmade place cards were individually tied bunches of herbs which led guests to their seats for dinner. The fabulous Theresa of Dandelion Farm created a beautiful and flowing design of greenery down the middle of each table. Candlelight filled the tent as the sun went down and guests enjoyed a delicious family style meal by Bistro Catering. Kathryn’s friend Meaghan, a trained pastry chef, created the most beautiful display of handmade cakes for dessert.

The dance party force was strong with this crew and we quickly understood why. Kathryn + Jake’s longtime friends had secretly planned a flash mob and taught all 200 guests the moves over the course of the last year. K+J were smiling from ear to ear by the end of it (along with us and everyone else in the room).

They say it takes a village and Kathryn + Jake have that village. We were constantly amazed by the dedication and commitment of their circle of friends and family. If the people you surround yourself with are a reflection of who you are, it proves that Kathryn + Jake are some pretty special people. And we couldn’t agree more with that. Cheers to you two! We adored working with you and watching you promise each other forever! You can bet we’ll be coming back to visit you in Lander. Until the next happy hour together, cheers guys! Xo.

Cora + Kendall | Lyons Farmette, Lyons, CO | Colorado Wedding Planner


Cora + Kendall’s Farmette wedding day was the perfect embodiment of Fall— and a wedding that had been in the works for over 2 years. From the dark purple and burgundy hues of Cora’s bouquet to the cherry pie they served for dessert, their wedding included so many of the details we love. As a previous floral designer and current landscape designer, it was no surprise that Cora had such an incredible vision when it came to their wedding flowers—- and who better to knock it out of the park than Lace & Lilies?! Seriously. Be ready to swoon.

Both Cora + Kendall got their wedding day look from the fabulous Ember Hairstream— a mobile beauty parlor (the most adorably adorned vintage airstream) that offers on-site hair and makeup to brides in addition to barber services for the guys. Such a fabulous experience! The beautiful triangle arch was built by the bride’s father (and of course, would be repurposed later for some landscaping design in their own family yard)! The triangle shape was also symbolic as it tied into Cora + Kendall’s ring tattoos- which they opted for instead of traditional bands. We also adored the texture and definition that the pampas grass lining the aisle created for their ceremony. It was the perfect accompaniment to the hand built arch made from reclaimed lumber.

More fun details included signature cocktails— an Old Fashioned + a Floradora (a gin cocktail made with muddle raspberries and lime juice). Instead of doing a father/daughter dance, Cora and her dad sang “Teach Your Children” together which was so. sweet.

Cheers, Cora + Kendall! We loved being a part of your day! Fabulous vendor team listed below.

Brit + Zach | Lyons Farmette, Lyons, CO | Colorado Wedding Planner

It was the perfect day for Brit + Zach and these two were clearly head over heels for each other. From the “first moment” together to twirling around in the gardens at sunset, their photos showcase their love in the sweetest way. A big thanks to Brittany of Alchemy Creative for the wonderful images of their day. Brit is about as sweet as they come and their day was filled with all of the good kinds of emotion. A favorite moment for us had to be the first look she had with her father— I think it had all of us in tears!

Though the morning brought a little rain, in true Colorado fashion, the weather cleared just as guests started to arrive to the Farmette. Guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn and dinner under the stars.

Their day incorporated so many lovely details for that perfect farm wedding day— including Betty the Beverage Burro who delivers ice cold beer to guests in cocktail hour. All while wearing a flower crown— seriously. The best.

GB Culinary rocked a fabulous farm-to-table meal (if you’ve not heard of these guys, check them out). From the family style dinner to homemade cookies served with Little Man ice cream for dessert, they bring such love into all of the food they serve. Post-dinner, all the guests enjoyed an ice cream sandwich {with a side of whiskey, of course) as they danced the night away.

We might even go as far as to say, it was a perfect wedding. Brit + Zach, we adore you two! Thank you for being such wonderful clients and for allowing us to be a part of your day.

Shelby + Andy | The Lyons Farmette, Lyons, CO | Colorado Wedding Planner

We have so. much. love. for Shelby + Andy. We initially chatted with Shelby last summer and understood the feel her and Andy were going for immediately. An outdoor farm wedding, food truck, beautiful personal touches, and a whole lot of fun surrounded by family. In fact, their day was so family-centric—I don’t think we’ve ever seen a more musically talented bunch than the Black family! Shelby had her sisters sing for her ceremony entrance and her other siblings played guitar and sang for their first dances. Andy’s father officiated and their fathers and uncles then prayed over them during the ceremony.

Shelby has such a great vision and incorporated so many personal details into their day. The groom’s father built the gorgeous octagon arch you see in the photos below. Her guest tables were adorned with slate plates, vintage blue and blush goblets, hexagon tiles notating guest seats, and knotted napkins. The bride also made gold geometric shapes that were hung around the tent and used as centerpieces down the middle of the guest tables. The bridesmaids wore THE CUTEST matching fringed orange robes as they shared laughs and champagne with Shelby. One of our favorite personal touches was the mini-tipi that Shelby got to surprise her flower girls. After it was discovered, I don’t think they left it the entire night!

Shelby + Andy’s day was pure magic! Thanks for letting us be a part of it, you two! Xo.

Gabriella + Lou | Lyons Farmette | Colorado Wedding Planner

Gabriella + Lou --where do we even start?!  These two are the epitome of vibrant + FUN. From our first initial meeting over coffee, we knew we wanted to work with them to help design their big day. When it came to designing their Lyons Farmette wedding day, they didn't shy away from color one bit (which makes our hearts happy)! We loved helping them to create a beautifully unique and colorful day that was all their own-- from custom signage and invitations to stunningly bright floral arrangements adorning their guest tables and arch-- this day was the perfect fiesta! There was even a surprise flash mob planned by the bride's sister and an appearance of the groom's motorcycle for some of the cutest couple portraits ever (did someone say custom jean jacket!?). Thank you a million times over, Gabriella + Lou, for letting us be a part of your magical day! We'd do it all over again if we could.
