A Fun Backyard Wedding in Durango

Hannah & JD  |  August 19, 2017  |  Durango, CO

 

From the bride: My family and I have vacationed in Durango for over 20 years. It is a very special place to us and it felt right to have our wedding on my parent’s lawn in Hermosa.

THE STYLE

Our Durango wedding was simple, elegant, and rustic with ivory and natural wood colors.

THE CEREMONY

We held the ceremony at sunset on the west lawn of my parent’s home. My favorite memory was having my godfather marry us in front of our loved ones.

THE RECEPTION

The backyard was set with wooden tables, white linens and lots of flowers and lights. Having the wedding at my parent’s home felt very personal and intimate. It was so nice to have our favorite people in our favorite place.
