A Colorful Farm Wedding With DIY Details at Lyons Farmette in Lyons, Colorado

Vibrant colors and lush natural beauty were in abundance at Devin Cole (28 and owner of DWC Creative) and Kay Witkiewicz’s (28 and head brewer at 10 Barrel Brewing Company) wedding at Lyons Farmette in Lyons, Colorado, just north of Boulder. “It was the perfect mix of outdoors, with farm animals, mountain views and tree coverage,” Devin says. “So much charm can be found on the grounds, including a greenhouse, an Airstream trailer to get ready in, and alpacas!” Devin, a skilled artist, handcrafted most of the event’s decor—from chalkboard directional signs to watercolor escort cards—and decided on a bright palette of mustard yellow, green, blush and deep pink. “I never saw a wedding with this color scheme, so I thought it would give it some originality,” Kay says. After a personalized ceremony, Devin and Kay led their 84 guests to the nearby outdoor reception where they showcased lots of locally sourced fare. “We kept it very 'Coloradical' by serving only Colorado-made spirits and beers brewed by the groom,” Devin says. For dessert, the newlyweds arranged for Sweet Cow Ice Cream to roll in with their “Moo Mobile,” which served ice cream sandwiches and root beer floats. “The hardest part of wedding planning is the guest list and hurting feelings,” Devin says. “The best part was having guests who are truly invested in your relationship and have all the feels witnessing your ceremony.” —Carolyn Meers
