Ashton and Jacob’s bohemian Colorado wedding was fantastic! We have tons of great photos captured by Paul from Shutterfreek and you’re going to really enjoy seeing them. This fun-loving couple were married this past October at the Blue Lake Ranch & Ridgewood Event Center in Hesperus, Colorado. They chose pink, blue, and gold for the colors. Their bohemian theme offered many details including the bride’s crystal headband, gold colored table decor, Mr. and Mrs. monograms, custom flower programs, and birch arbor. Their three-tiered cake looked amazing and was surrounded by cupcakes and cake pops. How scrumptious! Get ready for the fun, all the love, and the amazing photos…

25 Best Outdoorsy Groom / Groomsmen Ideas

Emma here! Tell me if this sounds familiar. Your fiancé loves fishing. He hunts (or he goes to a cabin and drinks with his buddies, ha). His ideal day might include hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, hunting, or camping — pretty much anything related to being out in the woods, on a river, in a rustic cabin, or on a mountain. He can easily build an awesome fire like it’s no big deal, has a natural affinity of woodworking, and mowing the lawn or general outdoor yard work doesn’t bother him in the least (because at least he gets to be outside). He might have a boat, on which he takes fishing trips on the weekend or for a Saturday afternoon and gives it a clever name; he also brings back some seriously awesome catches because it comes naturally to him. He might have a beard — or, he doesn’t, but he rocks some pretty awesome stubble on the weekend. And he probably owns at least one flannel shirt and a favorite pair of very worn-in jeans.

If any of these sound familiar, you are about to marry a true outdoorsman, a guy who loves to be surrounded by nature, go on adventures, and explore the great outdoors. And you’re lucky because if you’re not outdoorsy yet, you will be soon enough — or you’ll at least discover an appreciation for new hobbies you can do together (i.e. kayaking, hiking in the woods, or rustic camping, all of which I’ve acquired as wife to Andrew). You’ll also notice that with your outdoorsy groom, he has probably picked a crew of outdoorsy groomsmen who happen to hone the same hobbies as he. Today We’re tackling some of our favorite attire ideas, beard tamers, outdoor groomsmen gifts, reception ideas, and more, all for that adventure-seeking dude you love oh-so-much (and his pals). In this post, we’ll show you how to apply some of the best outdoors-themed wedding ideas for your big day to surprise him. Enjoy!

21 Beautiful Barn Ideas for Weddings

Oh, how I adore barn weddings! Barn weddings are, in my opinion, the perfect pairing of an outdoor wedding with added comfort for guests. The weather for an outdoor wedding can be unpredictable. Although tents provide some reassurance, a barn is a pretty safe bet. Inside, guests can stay warm and enjoy strolling appetizers, seated dinner, a full-scale bar, and a solid dance floor. Just a few steps outside, though, they can enjoy a stroll along wildflower fields underneath a dark night sky lit up by stars. Ah, isn’t it romantic? Barn weddings are still all the rage, and we don’t see this craze going away anytime soon! Today we’re showing you twenty-one barn ideas for weddings to ring in the new year and get your creativity flowing. Which number is your favorite? I’m obsessed with #21. I guess you could say I saved the best for last. Just wait until you see it!

Isn’t this dance floor breathtaking?
