Valerie + Noah | Lone Hawk Farms Wedding | Boulder, Colorado
This couple came to me in a long list of CU referrals that I’m so thankful to have connected with. These are smart & creative people changing the world. Noah’s an assistant MicroBiologist who’s interviewed in the media on the most interesting topics … like the forensic use of hand bacteria left behind on computer keyboards and cell phones. You might find him in the Amazon forest in Peru, digging up dirt. A perfect match with Valerie, an evolutionary biologist who would like to study the exotic frogs along the way. Totally by coincidence, I was surprised to learn that Val’s Dad and my Father worked at the same engineering/industrial plant in Ohio 20 years ago. Small world.
This was a strictly “no ties allow” dress code wedding. Super laid-back. There were subtle moments around every turn … the flower girls who refuse to distribute their petals … the awesome violin solo by the ring bearer … and the dog’s constant presence. He oversaw the ceremony, but more important — he oversaw the grilling of the meat! (“I’m the groom’s dog and I’ll stand wherever I please”) The Lamb Brochettes and grilled Mahi Mahi were devine, accompanied by the DJ who only played Reggae, only on vinyl. There’s an entertainment niche for you.
Lone Hawk Farm is such a unique venue, as it’s a working farm and you’re encouraged to use their organic produce in your wedding meal. It’s a neighborhood country garden where you can purchase freshly harvested vegetables. The farm encourages local live music for your celebration and has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1975. During Val & Noah’s wedding they were renovating their classic barn with modern facilities and expanding the guest capacity to 150. Constant improvement and refinement is their hallmark.
