A Colorful, Rustic Wedding at Osborn Farm in Loveland, Colorado


                    Everything—the invitations, the escort cards, the table numbers, the side of the reception barn—was covered in bunting for Amber

Everything—the invitations, the escort cards, the table numbers, the side of the reception barn—was covered in bunting for Amber Fetzer (28 and a social worker) and Greg Verzosa's (29 and a student) wedding. The little flags added plenty of craftiness to the day, and shades of orange, red, yellow and teal totally brought the colorful, shabby-chic soiree to life. It was an added bonus that they did almost everything themselves, including the chevron and polka-dot ribbon ceremony backdrop, the wildflower and sunflower arrangements and, of course, the bunting. "I really loved seeing our hard work come together," Amber says. Wanting a space they could completely customize to their vision, Amber and Greg chose Osborn Farm in Loveland, Colorado. "It's a lovely farm that holds farmers' markets, pumpkin patches and weddings," Amber says. "We were very lucky to find this great venue, which was open to us making it into our vision. We really wanted an outdoor wedding, but the mountains were out of the question with so many guests traveling from out of state and sea level." There's so much to love about Amber and Greg's wedding—see all our favorite details, beautifully captured by CMP Studios, below.

All the stationery was designed by Amber and Greg's friend Nigel Penhale. The gorgeous brown-paper invitations set the tone with colorful bunting across the top, which made an appearance throughout the decor.
Amber wore a beautiful Watters dress from A&Be Bridal in Denver, Colorado. She loved the soft champagne tint, timeless white lace overlay, thin beaded gold belt and soft A-line silhouette. It was perfect for an outdoor, shabby-chic soiree.
The bridesmaids chose their own red-orange dresses for the shabby-chic wedding. They each completed their look with strappy sandals and bold yellow sunflower bouquets. The groomsmen wore gray slacks, white button-downs and suspenders.
Wanting to represent and honor all their guests, Amber and Greg created a wooden sign with arrows pointing in the direction of each town or state.
The flower girl wore a teal-and-coral-patterned dress that matched the wedding colors. She completed her look with a flower crown for a little added whimsy. But just before the ceremony, she got scared, and her dad walked down the aisle with her in his arms. They threw pom-pom flowers together as they went. How sweet is that?
