While this bride is more of a girly girl and loves anything that sparkles, Justin, her husband, is a huge outdoorsman and country boy at heart. It was with these ideas in mind that they found Crooked Willow Farms online, a venue that clearly represented both of them. The unique yet darling mixture of chic and country made for a gorgeous occasion.

From the Bride:When we arrived at the venue, we were immediately blown away. The rustic red stables, beautiful show horses, and Rocky Mountains gave it the country feel Justin was looking for. All the while, I fell in love with the gorgeous rod iron chandeliers, flower-filled gardens, and newly designed renovations that reflected the elegance and sparkle I had thought of. It was the perfect mixture of country and flair that we had in mind for our big day.
Not wanting to compete with the beauty of the venue, I kept the decor very simple. For our ceremony, we hung crystal chandeliers and sheer draping tied with burlap ribbon to the altar. I also made a sign out of burlap triangles. We draped it across the aisle to keep the guests from walking on the rose petals. The flowers were another one of my top priorities, and they were nothing short of amazing. They consisted of mostly hydrangeas, which are my absolute favorite. The florist also added branches to the arrangements to add a rustic touch.
My grandma, mom, and I made burlap table runners for each of the reception tables. We also made "MR" and "MRS" letters out of faux pearls to hang on the back of our chairs, and we glued faux pearls to the table numbers. The rustic touches of branches, barns, and boots, mixed with pearls, crystals, and chandeliers, were incredible.
Two signature drinks were served during the cocktail hour and reception. My signature drink was a delicious blueberry mojito, the Something Blue-berry Mojito. Justin's cocktail, the Muirski Palmer, was named after his nickname and passion for golf. It was here that we were able to tie in more personal touches in a very subtle manor. All said and done, it was the wedding of our dreams. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
