A Natural, Bohemian Wedding at The Lyons Farmette in Colorado
Alima Lindsey and David Gibson planned a fun-loving wedding with a romantic, bohemian aesthetic. "I always tease my husband that almost every single piece of clothing he owns is dusty blue, so that ended up being our color palette," Alima says. She donned a flowing dress and a dainty crown of greenery, while David looked dapper in a dusty-blue suit and patterned bow tie. Guests were greeted with a welcome board, drinks and a guest book displayed in David's father's yellow antique truck. The ceremony took place in a wooded area of the venue, which was decorated with a simple wedding arch and boho flower arrangement. For the reception, guests ate outside at farm tables beneath glowing string lights. Llama figurines made unique tabletop décor—and they gave a nod to the real-life llamas roaming on the farm. A tiered wedding cake, baked by David's sister, with bright-colored flowers satisfied everyone's sweet tooth.
Our favorite #MakeTradition moment: Alima and David included "jumping the broom" into their wedding ceremony. "I'm half black, so it was a family and cultural tradition that we both wanted to honor," Alima says. "Jumping the broom was traditionally used as a marriage ceremony for slaves in the southern United States, who were often not permitted to wed legally. Our wonderful officiant incorporated it in such a perfect way, and my little brother did a lovely reading and explanation of the tradition, which helped out the people who weren't familiar with it."
