The C Lazy U Ranch is such a magical place. Surrounded by the mountains and beauty of the Colorado terrain, this C Lazy U Ranch wedding encompasses the romance of the West.
Inspired by a Charles Marion Russell painting, A Mix Up, hues of lilac, dusty blue, buttery yellow, wheat, and walnut come together for a color palette rooted in the beauty of Colorado. The painting serves as the invitation envelope liner, and torn edges, walnut calligraphy, and aged paper come together to create the perfect first impression for this Wild West adventure.
The bride wears an Alon Livne as her first gown, with a prairie lace bolero and windswept cascading tulle, inspired by the romance of the West. Her second gown by Alessandra Rinaudo is a billowy gown adorned in large floral statement lace. Her turquoise and diamonds ring is classically western, and her booties are embroidered in blue flowers.
It was important to us that the floral design was appropriate for a wedding and still felt at-home in the mountains. For floral design story that’s both romantic and true to the region, Gradient & Hue went with clematis, cosmos, yarrow, sage brush, smokebush, rudbekia, delphinium, and roses in toffee, honey dijon, and koko loko to create a floral story rich in color and true to the West.
Our ceremony takes place at the C Lazy U’s Woodsie Overlook, with a breathtaking view of the Rockies and Willow Creek Reservoir, framed by a the ceremony floral arbor.
At the reception, lush florals spill from silver vessels aged with patina, and candles dot the table. The table is set with wood chargers reminiscent of saddles, antique silver goblets and flatware, and aged paper menus.
The bartender serves the Boujuee Bootlegger: four year bourbon, Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth, Angostura bitters, and orange peel, served with homemade whiskey cherry, stamped ice, and gold flakes. At the end of the day when the jingle sounds, the horses are run to pasture for free grazing. Dust rises as two hundred horses run to pasture as the perfect end to this romantic, Wild West adventure.
