Lone Hawk Farm is another one of my favorite Front Range wedding venues. The wedding venue, located north of Boulder and west of the city area of Longmont is on a picturesque property. When you drive in through the gates you are greeted by an apple orchard–this is the stuff of farm dreams! The outdoor ceremony site (on a lawn with a gazebo) is gorgeous and has some shade. Other buildings and structure at Lone Hawk Farm add to its charm: real working barns, Santa Fe style fencing, a deck overlooking a beautiful valley. While at Lone Hawk Farm you will see goats, horses, and chickens. A group of peacocks even checked out one of my brides getting ready once!
The indoor reception hall is great as well. It is large, has plenty of space for dancing and eating and serving food. The cocktail hour patio just off of the reception hall is also nice–I love the reflective light the tin siding produces on wedding guests! The outdoor lawn near the hall is also enjoyable–shady, green, lush…perfect for mingling or even dancing into the night.
My very first digital photography wedding (yes, I’ve photographed a couple weddings using mostly film!) took place at Lone Hawk Farm on a beautiful fall day. Rebecca and Eric used sunflowers to decorate the space. We walked around taking photos of the couple and their bridal party near some of the old farm equipment and the yellow sunflowers were a great pop of color. A bluegrass band provided dancing music, and at one point towards the end of the night, the bride and groom and everyone at the event created a big circle and danced together. I LOVE THOSE MOMENTS!
Braden and Justin got married at Lone Hawk on a hot, humid summer day. They decorated the space with artwork from a local potter–how cool is that?! Cousins of all ages created an impromptu band and played music during the outdoor cocktail hour and a DJ followed up, getting family out on the dance floor.
