P9182525“Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.”  Dating back to the Victorian Era, this good luck saying is proof that “going green” was for the hip way back in the day. Recycling more than good old traditions, getting back to basics can take you all the way back to the farm.

Today’s barn weddings  can offer a blend of laid back old world style with contemporary comforts. A barn is no longer just a barn. The best ones seems a step off the beaten path and provide a semi-blank canvas on which you design your own event. Thus, they tend to host very personal (thus, memorable) events. From rustic to chic, a Colorado style wedding might lead you to a good old barn…

Enter, Lone Hawk Farm, Longmont, Colorado. This updated venue is a great example of a working farm that offers a lovely site for both an intimate ceremony and a jammin’ reception. I might be exaggerating to suggest you can “design on a dime” but you  can certainly work the “less is more” design principles and let the beauty of nature provide the backdrop for your perfect day.P9182521P9182522P9182523P9182526
