We love hearing about couples that embrace unconventional wedding ideas. Take lovely Christi and Noah who wed at Lyon’s Farmette in Lyons, Colorado, United States. They chose to have no wedding theme, no structure, and no agenda.
Christi explains, “It was important to us that the wedding stayed small and simple. There was no theme, no real agenda, no professional decorations and no real structure. Having been to dozens of weddings over the years that follow the same cliché format (ceremony, sit down dinner, speeches, father/daughter dance, first dance, money dance, cheesy DJ music, etc.) we made a point of going the opposite direction. It was low budget and low on frills on purpose. We knew we wanted to be outside to take advantage of the beautiful Colorado summers. But we also knew that we wanted something intimate versus sprawling. The Lyons Farmette was the perfect size and had the perfect mix of grass area, farm area, and creek area.”
We love that the couple also kept their wedding green by only using local wedding vendors. Plus, this wedding now proves that a low fuss and low budget wedding can also be truly beautiful!
“The wedding was a true group effort. Our aunts, uncles, brothers, best friends, mums and dads did everything from setup the tables to arrange the flowers to pickup up the hay bails and buy the table cloths. It’s hard to pin down one ‘favourite’ moment, but sharing a hug and the magnitude of the moment with our parents directly after the ceremony was incredibly emotional, gratifying,” says Christi.
Congratulations Christi and Noah, we adore your brightly coloured wedding pictures.
