A Rustic, Country Wedding at a Private Residence in Brush, Colorado

Talia Kauk (32 and a photographer) and Casey Siens (36 and an open source IT professional) wanted to have their rustic wedding at a place that felt personal to them. They decided on Talia's parents' farm, which they had inherited from her paternal grandparents, just outside Brush, Colorado. "Our wedding was a rustic, country wedding in a place that means the world to me," Talia says. Jessi Dalton Photography followed the entire outdoor wedding capturing every special moment and all the burlap and lace details. When deciding on their wedding day fashions, Talia and Casey wanted to continue their country-inspired theme. "We went for a vintage country look to fit the feel of the venue," Talia says. She wore a Maggie Sottero lace wedding dress with cap sleeves and a champagne sash while Casey wore a classic black suit with a white polka-dot tie. They chose a country-inspired color palette of brown, peach and off-white with blue accents. "I thought it would complement the country wedding we were having with lots of lace and burlap," Talia says. Talia and Casey credit their florist, Down The Aisle By Maria, for most of their beautiful decor, including the small bouquets in mason jars that lined the ceremony aisle and flowers that adorned the wooden gazebo that was specially built for the ceremony. "I loved my flowers so much," Talia says, "Maria was so important in creating a beautiful day for me in putting together arrangements." In the end, however, having their family and friends take part in their wedding was what was most important to Talia and Casey. "Casey and I really wanted our family and friends to be a part of our wedding," Talia says. "We had family arrive earlier in the week to help us get the house ready, and my good friends helped me with my flowers, wedding planning, photography and music. We even had a friend as our officiant."
