Start with a Rustic Location

One of the most memorable elements of a successful wedding is the location or the venue. And your rustic chic wedding venue is no exception. Located just outside beautiful Larkspur at the foot of Raspberry Butte, and set against the stunning backdrop of the southern front range, Snow Creek Larkspur offers the perfect blend of country ambience and modern convenience for your guests to watch you take your vows.

Exchange vows at our outdoor chapel, framed by a reclaimed wood wedding arch and cross. Then host your reception right here at the ranch, where you can dine and dance the night away in the spacious, climate controlled barn. Bridesmaids and groomsmen can prepare for the ceremony in our comfortably converted horse stables and lofts.

  • The minute we stepped foot on Snow Creek Larkspur’s property we had no doubt we had found the place we would get married at. The most special part of our day was not only being able to wed in such a beautiful and special location, but also being able to utilize ALL of the ranch for our day. To know that it was ours exclusively was so special and allowed us to use the big barn for our reception, the stable loft to get ready, the beautiful rustic outdoors for amazing pictures, and so much more.

Rustic Chic Wedding Invitations

After you’ve booked your venue, wedding invitations are the perfect way to introduce your guests to your rustic chic wedding concept. Go for something both simple and elegant.

Incorporate traditional wedding invitation elements like hearts, leaves or flowers, combined with rustic details like woodgrain backgrounds, woodcut representations of local animals, or pine needles like this set designed by our partner Donise Newkirk of A Berry in the Wild.

Also, remember that recycled paper invitations often have a rustic or vintage theme, so if you’re planning a green wedding, be sure to check out all your options.

Let the Outdoors Inside with Your Rustic Wedding Chic Decor

When it comes to decor, a great way to lean into the rustic chic vibe is to bring a bit of the outdoors into your ceremony and reception. Instead of traditional floral centerpieces, select a fresh mix of native greens and flowers for a simple, yet sophisticated accent sure to please your guests.

Another memorable chic rustic wedding accent is to use slices of native pine for your cake table decorations, and use burly-but-beautiful stumps in the chapel to delineate the aisle.
Remember that your rustic wedding can throw out many wedding decoration rules, so feel free to use unexpected accent materials, such as dried flowers, burlap, or pine cones.

One more advantage to a country wedding at Snow Creek Larkspur is our commitment to stewardship of the land our venue is located upon. For example, our green weddings are water-wise, using portable toilet facilities and hand washing stations (tucked attractively out of sight behind rustic bales of hay for a homey country touch.

Plus we recycle or compost every bit of waste possible after your wedding, and encourage our vendors to source locally whenever possible. With our help, your rustic wedding can be chic, and also have a negative carbon footprint.

Say Goodbye with Grace

Modest, but thoughtfully selected favors are a great way to send your guests off in style after a memorable day. An assortment of penny candies would be a charmingly retro keepsake, or sealed jars of local honey (ask us about sourcing local honey or other treats for take-away favors!). Again, feel free to consult with our rentals partner Donise from A Berry in the Wild.

  • They had the right amenities that we were looking for in a barn/outdoor setting up against the foothills showcasing Colorado beauty at the right price as well as lots of freedom and options for vendors to use, DYI options, and overall just the feel that it was “ours” for our wedding day! We loved it!!
