Get ready to pick your jaws up off your floors, y'all. We've got some beautiful photos of Keith and Hawzien's rustic wedding for you today. The couple got married outdoors at the Denver Botanical Gardens, and the gorgeousness of this wedding will blow ya minds! They had a two-day celebration, the first focusing on American traditions, and the second one honoring Hawzien's Ethiopian heritage.

You'll especially want to stick around for the reception photos. Pretty sure we've never featured a bride who completely changes her hairstyle for the reception. Hawzien undergoes a small transformation with some stunningly beautiful braids. From the Hip Photo tells us that the couple decided to include some Ethiopian wedding traditions for the after-party.
