Rustic Southwestern Wedding in Golden Gate Canyon State Park

July 3, 2015 | jackie

After a romantic proposal weekend spent in tiny rustic cabin near hot springs, waterfalls, and mountains in Colorado, Stuart and Aly made the decision to host their enchanting wedding with the same theme. With all of its rustic character, the Red Barn at Golden Gate Canyon State Park was the perfect place for Stuart and Aly’s natural wedding. We love how the couple wrote the guests’ names on stones instead of using traditional place cards. And, to top it all off, the amazing Geoff Duncan was there to capture this incredible DIY wedding!

The Couple:

Stuart and Aly

The Wedding:

Red Barn at Golden Gate Canyon State Park, Golden, Colorado

The Inspiration:

We didn’t want to feel limited by a certain theme so we just went with what we liked! A little rustic, a little boho, a little southwest and a lot D.I.Y.! We wanted our friends in the wedding party to look good and feel good, so we gave them a little direction and trusted them to find something that worked. In the end, I am so glad we went this route. Our friends have great style and I’m happy it shows on our wedding day.

The Moments:

It’s all my favorite! Hearing Stuart’s vows while we were tucked into an aspen grove surrounded by everyone we love was pretty incredible. I’ll also never forget all the wonderful and heartfelt speeches from our friends and family… Including the one where one of my Maids of Honor decided we should sing a duet right then and there! Belting out Harry Nilsson’s “Let the Good Times Roll” goes in the books as my first karaoke experience!
