From the custom invitations and bridesmaid bouquets to the wedding arbor and wedding favors, Kerry Dickman (29 and a teacher) and Billy Andrews (31 and a teacher) filled their rustic wedding with sunflowers. Symbolizing energy and happiness, it's no wonder the outdoorsy couple chose the bright flower as a theme. Kerry and Billy balanced the bright yellow flower with dark shades of navy and gray as well as rustic details such as wooden wheelbarrows and windowpanes. With the help of wedding planner Jen Miller, the entire look came together to fit in with Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado. Between the open fields, rolling foothills, the red barn and the farm animals, Kerry and Billy found the perfect place for their wedding. We love how Kerry and Billy weren't afraid to take an its-my-wedding approach, making a lot of the decor themselves. Kerry even drew and painted "South Park" characters Stan and Wendy for their cake topper. See all our favorite details, beautifully captured by Aldabella Photography, below.

Kerry and Billy set the tone for their wedding early with sunflower-decorated brown card-stock invitations. The couple loved how they had the same colors—green, yellow, brown and white–as the wedding.
Kerry found her stunning dress at Bijou Bridal. She was immediately drawn to the open back with sheer lace creating an asymmetrical oval shape. The subtle beading on the bodice and timeless buttons down the back were the perfect touch.
Kerry's bridesmaids wore navy Bill Levkoff dresses for the rustic wedding. Wanting her friends to feel comfortable and confident in their outfits, she let everyone choose whatever style they wanted. The bridesmaids completed their looks with their own nude shoes. Inspired by the sunflower theme, Kerry gave them Alex and Ani gold sunflower charm bracelets, which also donated money to the Alzheimer's Association.
