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.
