The Lyons Farmette is a 5 acre property near the St. Vrain River just outside the town of Lyons. Weddings here are surrounded by our small organic farm, where we grow vegetables, herbs, and flowers for farmers' markets, our 30-member CSA,  local restaurants, and for our weddings. We have chickens, a lovable Nubian goat named Waylon, alpacas, and one magnificent llama, who all make a fun addition to your wedding party. Brides and their entourage can get ready in our charming restored Airstream trailer. The farm is an intimate space surrounded by rustling cottonwood trees and the glitter of the sun from our small stream. We grow and design beautiful flowers for your event, and we can provide organic produce for your dinner. The Farmette is the place for a unique, authentic, and natural wedding true to your adventurous spirit and uncommon love.

We offer showings of both venues on Saturday mornings at 9:00.  We meet at the Farmette and will also go over to River Bend.
Please let us know if you will be joining us!

"When my husband and I began searching for our wedding venue, we set out to find a location that felt soulful, down to earth, beautiful, and laid back. We knew the moment we set foot on the Lyons Farmette that it was the perfect wedding spot for us. The Farmette is truly overflowing with charm. The owners are welcoming and warm, the animals are adorable, and the gardens are breathtaking and the layout is absolutely picturesque. We look back on our wedding day and feel overwhelmed with gratitude for how lovely everything was. We are so thankful that this wonderful venue exists, and that we were lucky enough to spend our special day there with all of our family and friends."

"We absolutely loved getting married at the Farmette! We had just moved to Colorado a month before we booked it and felt so incredibly lucky. It was perfect and absolutely magical, even with a few drops of rain. The flowers were at their peak and literally every picture we got from our wedding day had beautiful flowers in the background. We loved the whole feel of the Farmette: dinner and dancing outside, twinkly lights, a creek for people to drink and chat by, chickens, goats, and alpacas for entertainment. We felt well taken care of from start to finish and our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It felt very 'us' and we wouldn't have it any other way."

"My husband and I were married at the Farmette on June 8, 2014.  It might have been the rainiest day in June!  Betsy, Mike, and all of the Farmette staff worked extra hard to make sure we still had the perfect day.  Betsy worked closely with our day-of wedding coordinator to order extra heaters, reset the tables, and make the best of the rainy situation.  She even held my dress and an umbrella for me as I walked from the Airstream bridal trailer to the covered porch right before the ceremony.  We truly had the BEST DAY EVER - the rain actually helped our guests get to know each other and feel quite cozy, and the grass and flowers looked extra colorful in the rain. We're still hearing comments on how much fun our guests had, which I know is in large part to the extra preparation by the Farmette staff.  Thank you so much!"
