Planet Bluegrass Wedding | Riverside Romance

We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing and creative clients, and this adorable couple is the crème de la crème! We have the entire story from our very own lead designer, Amber Fairbanks:

When I first met with the bride, Sami, I knew she would be an ideal client. Her excitement about stationery, flowers, and linens – as well as her openness to new ideas – is a wedding planner’s dream.

My original notes went something like this: “I want the wedding to feel ‘Colorado’ but not too much. I want it to be a little vintage without being a vintage wedding. I want it to be a little bit rustic, but not too rustic.”

This led us to Planet Bluegrass, the legendary venue in Lyons, Colorado, and the ideal canvas for such a wedding. The venue is situated next to the river with a sheer gray cliff edge and beautiful mountain views through a valley.

Each chair featured random sprigs of greenery and adorable pillows to give their ceremony an intimate, cozy feel.

The ceremony took place next to the river with the couple framed underneath a striking wooden arch. The arch was wreathed in flowing garland and in the center, dangled a vintage chandelier wrapped in bright coral flowers.

For the design, we choose to do a mix of floral and solid creamy linens, wood chairs, and an eclectic mix of centerpieces that included mint-green and gold metallic vessels.
