For Sam and Brad, their choice of wedding site, Planet Bluegrass Ranch, was an easy call. "It's primarily used for music festivals," says Sam. "We've been going to bluegrass festivals there for years, and it's home to some of our favorite memories together. So it was only fitting that we get married there, too!" The couple said their vows on a lawn overlooking the St. Vrain River under a chuppah made of birch branches adorned with clusters of sunflowers, hydrangeas, delphiniums, and organza streamers. The reception was held in the open-air pavilion which was decorated with swags of organza and hanging lanterns. Some reception tables featured arrangements of green and blue hydrangeas. "We used blues, greens, and natural wood tones to complement the colors found outdoors and in the pavilion," says Sam. See more from this couple's wedding here.
