DIY Country Wedding: Amy and Aaron
Ever been to a wedding with gun play? Amy and Aaron had a shotgun wedding of a different sort. The bride and groom met while working at the then Colorado Division of Wildlife and their courtship played out in duck blinds, camouflaged turkey calls and in the fruitless pursuit of elk for their freezer.
So it should be no surprise that they decided to marry at a private pheasant hunting reserve. The rustic beauty of Stillroven Farm made a great backdrop for the country style wedding. Amy and Aaron exchanged vows under a snow ball bush on the farm house lawn, then walked over to one barn to shoot portraits, then to another barn for the BBQ dinner and reception.
Pheasant feathers doubled as rose petals and the bouquets and boutineers where made from feathers and paper. Many of the ideas came form Pinterest, but more on the details in a later blog. The point is that Amy and Aaron killed it with their DIY wedding. We love photographing weddings like this one. Their vision for the day made our photos that much better, it was almost easy to roll in and start shooting (with our cameras).
Please enjoy the photos on the blog, there will be a full gallery soon. If you are planning a country wedding or any other wedding give us a call for a free consultation. And don’t worry, the shotguns were only out for the portraits. Though they may have played a roll in the awesome sausage at the barbeque.
P.S. These are my pics, I have a feeling that Chris will be posting his photos and thoughts soon.
