The Theme: Brittany and Michael wanted a “rustic

sustainable farm” wedding. They wanted to bring in the cultural themes the two discovered from their year and a half abroad, while still staying true to their love of sustainable agriculture. After an unlucky trip venue hunting in Aspen, the two met the farm manager from Rock Bottom Ranch at the Aspen Farmers Market and he invited them to the farm. The moment Brittany and Michael stepped onto the 113 acre wildlife preserve, there was no doubt in their minds they had found the perfect place to say “I Do!”

The Dress: Brittany’s dress was not-so-ordinary! She knew she wanted to get her dress handmade in South East Asia for cost purposes and to custom create something that matched her style. They found a place in Bangkok, Thailand, and in the process of 2 stressful weeks, had her dress and Michael’s suit made by a Thai woman named Waan. It was bright white with a beautiful see-through lace of vines and flowers sewn onto it. The thin straps were decorated with this same lace, giving the illusions that the vines climbed from the dress onto my back and shoulders. The back of the dress dipped down in a V-shape and was finished with tiny pearl buttons and a medium-length train. The vines fail off the bottom of Brittany’s gorgeous gown and trailed along giving it a beautifully rustic and natural look.
