I first met Michelle & Kyle last fall at a brewery in Boulder to chat about their wedding. It was about a month before the ‘100 year Boulder flood’, which pretty much annihilated their wedding site and favorite concert venue, Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, Colorado. Fast forward 8 months, and both Planet Bluegrass and the town of Lyons have been miraculously restored through blood, sweat and pure dedication of the people that call this little mountain town home. Driving through the town, you can still see latent signs of where the water rose above people’s homes, tearing them off their foundations; Lyons was the hardest hit town in all of northern Colorado during the 100 year flood last year. Yet, the town persevered in spite of this natural disaster through their love of their community and the support of those that have frequented this little mountain town for it’s many sports and festivals throughout the years. Kyle and Michelle are part of this crowd of people that continue to support the town of Lyons because it has become a place where they have created so many fond memories together over the years at the bluegrass festivals held at Planet Bluegrass. These two are classic Colorado: Kyle is an Eagle Scout, and the two of them spend their weekends together camping in the mountains with friends, and supporting the vibrant, local music scene. They went to school together at Elon University, but it wasn’t until a semester abroad in New Zealand that the pair really discovered each other. Since then, they have been inseparable.
