A Barn Wedding in Longmont Colorado

Out of the Box, that is what this wedding was- and beautiful. Their ceremony was breathtakingly beautiful.  I remember seeing the bride that day and being stunned by her beauty and her calmness.

And then, the party started.. with the very ‘typical’ mechanical bull riding (yes, you read that right), corn hole, food trucks, a barn, and a popcorn bar.  Talk about having your guests feel at ease, and there was not a dull moment that evening.

You have to check it out!  And perhaps steal some of the ideas for yourself ;)…

A Colorado Castle Wedding

When I first spoke with Zofia over the phone, I knew we were going to have some fun putting together this intimate wedding filled with vintage pieces, beauty, amazing design (the groom is a designer and owner of AMB3R ), Polish vodka (the bride’s family is from Poland of course), Jewish and Catholic traditions, a coffee bar (with coffee specially hand-brewed by the groom), Capoeira, and Bossa Nova dancing.

The couple wanted to spend time having fun with their family and friends coming into Colorado, so what better than racing cars at Speed Raceway the day before the wedding?  And all sporting their “Zofia and Jeremy” T-shirts designed by Jeremy himself (and they are super comfy to boot).

The invites?  Posters!

11:11.  They were originally planning on getting married on 11-11, but the groom undergoing cancer treatments they chose to postpone the wedding. Still wanting to honor 11:11 in their wedding, they officially sealed the deal with a kiss at 11:11 a.m at the Cherokee Castle and Ranch.  Yes, the ceremony was timed to the minute, with an extra long musical interlude (sung by the groom’s brother) to ensure the 11:11 timing.

The reception followed at the private home of their cousin in Sedalia- with a view of the castle in the background.  It was an evening filled with heartfelt toasts, capoeira references, a bossa nova father/daughter dance, Micheal Jackson moves, a can-can with family and friends, vodka toasts, heartfelt speeches, and delicious family style food.  It was a perfect merging of traditions, families, and what this couples loves to do.

As you said Zofia, you can now tell your kids you got married in a castle!  And a beautiful wedding it was.  I am sure your marriage will be just as beautiful.

Do they get any better looking?  And yes, the groomsmen are wearing ascots!

As you can probably guess, photography was ‘uber’ important to this couple, and when I laid several brochures/photos/business cards in front of Zofia, her eyes struck the business card/photo of Jackie with Selah Photography, and that was the one!  There was no other option.  So, thank you, Jackie, for the amazing photos.
