Weddings That Give Back: Devin and Kay- The Lyons Farmette, CO

Truly can’t get enough of this sweet, spring-inspired, farm wedding, photographed by our friend, Meigan Canfield Photography. We loved what she had to share during the submission process, we decided to keep it organic and introduce the wedding story with her words and images alone! Hope this wedding brightens your day, as much as it did ours. Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay014 ‘I met Devin, from DWC Creative, at The Big Fake Wedding a couple of years ago in Denver. If you do not know what the Big Fake Wedding is, it is a wedding show in the form of an actual wedding. Honestly, it was the coolest thing I have ever done in the industry. No regrets … none. I met the most talented and personable vendors there, including the artist/bride, herself! Devin (the bride) took part in the Big Fake Wedding as part of the event design. Fast forward and the wedding vendor is getting married and planning her own wedding! Devin handmade the watercolor, calligraphic table cards and hand painted the mini potted succulent guest gifts, and her mother made the crochet buntings. Her jewelry and shoes were handmade and specially ordered through small, growing businesses, her flowers were arranged by an amazing BSB vendor, MJM Designs, a florist that donates proceeds to the humane society. The thrifted table vases and handmade crochet blankets were donated to the couple’s local homeless shelters this past winter. There was so much kindness and charity gifted behind the scenes of every observable, beautiful little detail. And on top of all of that, I fell completely in love with their love for each other and for every single person they invited to their big celebration. It was one of those weddings that force you to feel all of the feels for people you truly have only met a couple of times, but now feel like you know transparently. Devin and Kay you deserve the BEST of the best.’ –  Meigan Canfield Photography Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay002  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay021  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay029 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay032 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay039  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay059 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay065 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay069 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay075   Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay123 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay130  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay139 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay212  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay224 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay229 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay237 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay238 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay239 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay242    Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay336 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay339  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay346Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay781Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay380 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay421 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay440  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay332Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay344 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay486  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay629Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay529 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay540   Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay561 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay563 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay568  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay576 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay589 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay268 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay271 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay272 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay286 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay258 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay308 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay314  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay132Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay684Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay466Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay624Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay642  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay637 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay656 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay649  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay678  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay693  Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay810 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay848 Cole_Witkiewicz_MeiganCanfieldPhotography_DevinandKay901 Listed below are all of the vendors who helped make the wedding sustainable, green or charitable in some way.

Big Fake Wedding- Denver

Big Fake Wedding Denver was amazing! With ‘Roma Red’ as the inspiration for the event they used Italian influence to invade the Mile High City and we must say, the vendors came out strong! This is one of our favorite Big Fake Wedding‘s to share, because you can see the strong vendor relationships and collaborations seamlessly aligned throughout the day… Everything just came together so nicely.  You can also smell the yummy herb infused breads and cheeses, in the images, and taste the sweet goodies… You’ve been warned: Sensory Overload coming at ya! We also want to point out two of our amazing Black Sheep Bride Vendors were there to join in on the fun: Rachel Gomez Photography and MJM Designs! Thank you ladies for standing out by making a difference in the wedding community!
