Carin Clary (31 and a senior adviser at the New York City office of the mayor) and Edward Ubiera (39 and a senior graphic designer for Aeropostale) met through mutual friends in Brooklyn, New York. A little over a year later, Ed proposed on Christmas morning during a trip to Spain with a ring he designed and made himself (he took a jewelry making class for the occasion!). For the wedding, the New York-based couple decided to get married in Paonia, Colorado, Carin’s hometown. “Our wedding location was so stunning, we really wanted to keep an organic, soft feel to our wedding with lush flowers, gold flickering lights and flower boxes from reclaimed barn wood,” Carin says. They used a neutral color palette with pops of mint and red throughout. They made a lot of the details themselves such as the rustic stationery and the beer growler table numbers. Since Carin’s father owns a small business in Paonia, they wanted to support local businesses at their wedding. They served an ultra-local farm-to-table family style dinner and a gorgeous naked cake from Ellen Hutto. At the end of the night, Carin and Ed gave guests Monofuko cookies from Brooklyn and handmade Clary sage soap.

Carin wore sparkly gold stripy Louboutin heels for a hint of glamour at her farmhouse wedding.
The bridesmaids wore mint J. Crew dresses in whatever style they wanted.
The groomsmen wore gray suits with mint ties with red pocket squares while Ed wore a red tie with a mint pocket square.
