With country music being one of my favorite genres, I was excited when we (Storytellers Events) decided to do a styled weddings shoot based off of the popular song “Somethin’ ’bout a Truck” by Kip Moore. This Colorado wedding styled shoot was set to include every detail a real wedding would have: venue, catering, DJ, flowers, the whole works. It had everything, but a bride and groom. After some thought, and going back and forth with the wonderful Ali and Garrett photography, we decided that it would be a fantastic idea to give a real wedding away to a deserving couple who loved country as much as we do! And we found them!
The lucky couple, Sloane and Mitch, married one another on May 28th in true country fashion. The ceremony and reception took place outside, near Firestone, Colorado. The landscape was the perfect setting for a “country” wedding. Surrounded by water, trees, a dirt road (and even the bugs), picnic tables, wine barrels (thank you Allwell Rents), and country music, the couple sealed their vows. After the ceremony, the couple and their guests celebrated by doing line dances in their cowboy boots and swing dancing into the sunset. The unique country wedding was filled with whiskey bottles, hors d’oeuvres (fried chicken and grits), cowboy hats and lots of love.
Since the weddings theme was based off of “Somethin’ ’bout a Truck” we wanted to go along with the theme of country songs/lyrics. The bar was set up in the bed of a truck labeled, “you’ll be my glass of wine I’ll be your shot of whiskey,” the lyrics from Blake Shelton’s song “Honey Bee”.
The menu was also very important, and each item served had it’s own Country Song! The amazing people at Elevated Catering made sure class and country came together deliciously. To keep with the Whisky theme, we thought the chocolate whiskey bundt cakes provided by The Sugar Bakeshop (yup, the same ones who were featured on the Cooking Channel) would be perfect! Check it out below…
Aside from the bride and groom, the DJ is usually the hit of the wedding- after all it’s the DJ’s job to make sure the celebration is nothing less than a good time! The DJ played a wide variety of country music- and we couldn’t resist the signage at his table saying, “You make my speakers go boom boom.” Thanks Total Encore!
To add a personal touch, our amazing Suzanne created a unique guest book where she created a wood engraving of the couple’s name, and had the guests sign it. She then created CD favors, where she included all of the songs of the wedding, including the ones used as inspiration for the tables, the bar, the menu, and the DJ table. How fun!
The real wedding giveaway was such a blast and we loved everything about it! We could not have done it without all of the fabulous vendors! My personal favorite was the line dancing! Make sure to check out all the pictures from this fabulous day.
