I shot this wedding a while back as a second shooter with another company. When you’re a second shooter you usually get stuck with the guys, and it usually means way less opportunity for awesome getting ready pictures. Well, that was not the case here! This awesome affair took place in Boulder, CO and was meant to be a celebration of Boulder about as much as it was a celebration of love. The getting ready happened at the Hotel Boulderado (amazing/haunted hotel that I believe was the first hotel ever built in Boulder), the ceremony took place in front of the Boulder County Courthouse, there was then a celebratory parade up and down the Pearl Street Mall, complete with noisemakers and bagpipers, leading up to the reception at the Boulder Theater. I loved it!
This couple was really interesting because they met via an online dating site, but upon getting together realized they had been right next to each other almost their whole lives, growing up in the same town, living within blocks of each other in multiple cites, moving simultaneously to the same places without having ever met. It was destined to be, and when they were too busy to see all the life cues the universe was sending them, the internet stepped in to make it happen! I absolutely adored this couple, I hope you enjoy this festivity as much as I did!
It’s way too common that groomsmen don’t know how to tie a tie
On to the ceremony!
I liked it that this wedding was out in the open, spectators gathered, it was so sweet!
Festivities began immediately after the kiss!
