A Hat-Filled, Vintage Wedding at Stone Mountain Lodge in Lyons, Colorado

Inspired by a love for 1920s attire, Amber (32 and a scientist) and Jon (32 and a systems administrator) planned for their wedding guests to wear vintage hats. "Almost all our guests participated, which was great fun," Amber says. "People really got into it." The couple got married on a rainy Saturday at Stone Mountain Lodge, a quaint venue in Lyons, Colorado, selected for its local cabins and the ability to serve homemade wine and beer. Amber wore a lace wedding dress with knit lace detailing on the sleeves and belt. "My dress was very boho vintage," Amber says. "It was simple, beautiful and comfortable for lots of dancing." This resourceful bride also incorporated a few DIY touches by making her own bouquet and jewelry. Jon wore a lavender plaid button-down shirt, a tweed vest with jeans and a tan derby hat. After the ceremony, guests moved to a tent in the nearby meadow for barbecue catered from Smoke Shack. Colorado Photo Booth provided additional entertainment and keepsakes for guests. Our favorite touch? The bride's burgundy derby, which provided a pop of color that coordinated with the wedding party. "I think the guests really enjoyed the hats," Amber says. "It gave everyone something to talk about and something different to plan for." The celebration, and various hats, were beautifully captured by Annabelle Denmark Photography, below.

The bride carried a bouquet with red roses, baby's breath, orange sunflowers and purple feathers. The base was wrapped in purple ribbon.
The bride wore a burgundy derby wrapped three times with burgundy satin ribbon and adorned with a satin flower.
Jon wore a lavender plaid, button-down shirt with a tweed vest and burgundy tie. He wore jeans and a red rose boutonniere.
Groomsmen wore jeans with button-down shirts, as well as vests and hats of their choice.
Bridesmaids chose their own dresses in shades of red and burgundy. The bridesmaids carried sunflower and baby's breath bouquets. Each wore their own vintage hat to match the wedding's theme.
"Almost all our guests wore hats, which was great fun. People really got into it," Amber says. "We asked people to wear hats in the RSVP cards. One of the reply options was "Will be there, with a fancy hat."
"Every bit of the day reflected us as a couple," Amber says. "We worked together on everything from writing our wedding ceremony and vows to one of our closest friends officiating."
To utilize the wedding color scheme of green, brown, purple and red, Amber tied the colors into decorations for the reception tent.
