Ahhh, the great Riverbend. Nestled into the foothills of Lyons, Colorado, full of life and nature, it's a stunning location to set the tone for an outdoor wedding + celebrations alike. Its open landscape is great for dinner al fresco, but sprinkled with trees to make you feel like you're in a wooded campsite, its perfect for Meaghan and Jon to say their vows.
Colorado weather in the summertime can be as indecisive as a 7th grader picking out their first day of school outfit. Sunshine, clouds, rainstorms, hail, back to sunshine (sometimes all in 20 minutes). Meaghan and Jon's day did bring a little rainstorm during their first look, but thankfully the storm passed and we were able to enjoy the day exactly how they planned.
The ceremony was focused on individuals becoming one, the birth of their son Henry and how important family is. It was filled with laughter and lots of love. The sun is now lighting the far west, sweeping away the guests into a magical sunset as they enjoyed dinner, toasts and dancing.
Honestly, if you're reading this and are looking for a wedding venue, do yourself a favor and go check out Riverbend and The Farmette. They're magical places just perfect for a Colorado wedding. Plus, if youre a free-spirit like Meaghan, you can also get in the river!
Cheers to a lifetime of adventure Meaghan, John + Henry! I cant wait to see what comes your way!
