Allison + Andy

[ Boulder wedding photographer ]
A couple of weekends ago I had the pleasure of second shooting for the fabulous Autumn Burke at Andy and Allison's Planet Bluegrass wedding in Lyons, Colorado. I'd never even heard of Planet Bluegrass, let alone been there. What a cool venue! It's verdant and rustic in a Colorado sort of way, and the Lyons River runs right through the property. There are wildflowers everywhere.

I totally fell in love with the happy couple too! Allison's an art teacher, and you can see how creative she is by the attention she paid to fantastic little details like parasols, menus and place cards. Andy owns a skate shop -- it doesn't get much hipper than that!

Congrats Andy and Allison! I'm so happy to have been a small part of your big day.

Planet Bluegrass must have been a farm at one time, because there's a silo in the middle of the giant lawn. Here's a shot looking upward through the silo.

Allison's bouquet featured multicolored ribbons wound round the stems.

In a nod to Andy's passion for skating, all the guys wore Vans.

They opted for western shirts instead of tuxes.

First glimpse.

A couple of Andy's groomsmen hopped on a tricycle and rode through the pre-ceremony portraits.

Parasols were at the ready to shield guests from sun or rain.

The ceremony took place right on the banks of the Lyons River.

The moms, moments after the ceremony.

Allison replaced her veil with this chic head headpiece for the party.

The clever menus.
