Green Wedding Services with a Negative Carbon Footprint
How We Reduce
Locally Sourced Food – One of the most important ways we reduce our footprint is by encouraging our vendors to use as much locally sourced food and materials as possible, including our own world-famous, organically raised, free range beef from our family owned farm – Snow Creek Ranch Steaks.
Our caterers are also encouraged to purchase locally sourced produce from our farmers market partners and other local businesses. Sourcing locally means your food is not being shipped hundreds of miles, reducing the overall carbon footprint of your green wedding by burning less fuel to bring it to your table.
Comprehensive Composting Program – We engage in a comprehensive composting program. Caterers and vendors are encouraged to use paper flatware rather than plastic and to compost food waste as well, keeping tons of food from entering the waste stream and contributing to the negative carbon footprint of your wedding.
Non-Toxic Cleaning Products – Whenever possible we utilize non-toxic green or eco friendly cleaning supplies.
Water Wise Sanitation Facilities – In addition, we provide water-wise portable toilet facilities and handwashing stations.
Green wedding services have become increasingly popular over the last years, but few are as conscientious and committed to sustainability and stewardship.
How We Reuse
Reclaimed Cross & Wedding Arch – Among our most unique rustic green wedding amenities is the removable rugged wooden cross, hand-crafted by our great friends at Story Barns. Put together from reclaimed timber sourced from the mountain cabin of former Colorado poet laureate & journalist, Thomas Hornsby, it’s a way to bring a little Denver-style poetry to your green wedding.
Antique & Upcycled Furniture – Our bridesmaids & groomsmens stables are furnished with a classy, eclectic blend of furniture from the victorian & wild west eras, accents & decor from our ranch & the striking creations of our design partner, A Berry in the Wild.
Restored & Repurposed Building – The building containing our bridesmaid and groomsmens lofts is an active, rustic horse stable.
Repurposed & Redesigned Decor – Whenever possible, we reuse decor from the ranch, previous events & weddings.
How We Recycle
Recycling is a very important element of your eco friendly wedding. Our green wedding services utilize on-site composting & site-sorted recycling. Our goal is to reduce as much as 90% of your event-generated waste, which would otherwise end up in the Douglas County landfill.
