Summer Farm Wedding at Pastures of Plenty
A weathered wedding sign points the way past an old wagon wheel, under a canopy of lush green trees, over a rustic wooden bridge atop a little gurgling creek, to an open lawn where Lauren and Jake celebrated their wedding day. There is a sense of authenticity in backyard farm weddings and Pastures of Plenty Farm in Boulder captures that well with their own fields supplying both produce for dinner and flowers for bouquets and centerpieces arranged on site. Meat grilled on open flame during cocktail hour joins colorful vegetables in carved platters atop planked wooden tables for the main course. One has the sense that the fading blue paint of a small bench holding luscious fruit probably got its beautiful vintage look right there on the farm. Unpretentious. Beautiful. Close to the land. Authentic.
Lauren and Jake’s ability to be completely present in their day, deeply personal in their vows, and unabashedly expressive with their emotions complimented the earthy authenticity of Pastures of Plenty and was captured expertly by Garrett Hacking of Photography G. From the gracious laughter under romantic market lights (Pure Energy) to the breathless gasp on a hora chair to the raw tears when Lauren’s uncle gave her late father’s shoes to Jake and told him he had “big shoes to fill”, the entire wedding experience was beautiful. Unpretentious. Close to the heart. Authentic.
We think of our relationship as a strong foundation upon which we can both grow individually and together. We support each other in our own individual journeys of growth and self discovery and we feel lucky to walk hand in hand as we journey together. We are deeply connected in profound ways, but we also know how to let loose and goof around.
We believe that if you and your partner love each other and you are both passionate about growing consciously as a person and seeking true, profound happiness, you can get through anything!
From the Bride: We are big foodies and we worked on an organic family farm together in 2011. We believe in sustainable food, so Pastures was such an immediate draw for us. We also really wanted a place that had laid-back, natural energy and scenery and that was also obvious with Pastures of Plenty.
Lauren and Jake, we were so touched to be part of your celebration. Thank you for expressing yourselves so beautifully and naturally. We wish you a deeply meaningful life together!
