Seeing your future spouse for the first time on your wedding is already so special, but doing it on top of a mountain, takes it to the next level (literally). Madison and Andrew held nothing back, as they dreamed up the most amazing Colorado experience for their wedding guests. With epic portraits at Lost Gulch and a spectacular celebration at an art gallery in downtown Boulder, it was a day filled with laughter, tears and so many pinch me moments.
Full of nerves Madison stood back to back with her love, sharing personal thoughts, dreams of the future and promises for their marriage. Clasping each other’s hands as they listened to each other’s letters, you could see downtown Boulder and beyond in the background of their private overlook.
When Andrew finally turned around to see his bride, he could barely take it all in. Madison looked extraordinary and it took all Andrew had to stumble over to her arms.
First looks aren’t for everyone, but there’s something so awe inspiring to witness such an intimate moment with our BG Couples. We get to see true and honest emotions, no show, nothing forced, just pure sweet love. It’s a reminder of what this day truly means to them.
And after the last glass of champagne is poured and the reception floor is cleared, what’s left are these two people, getting to do the rest of life together.
Rembrandt Yard is an art gallery in the heart of Boulder, that is just as you’d picture a swanky, yet elegant big city space. Used frequently for events like weddings, the space provides great options for cocktail hours in one space, and receptions with floor to ceiling windows in another.
So for Madison and Andrews ceremony, the upper level was the perfect spot at the venue to share their vows. Daylight poured in the windows and all of downtown was their backdrop. Hilarious and heartfelt words were shared by the couple’s close friends, who tag teamed officiating this special moment.
Madison and Andrew made it a priority to plan the wedding as eco-friendly and responsible as they could. With gorgeous succulents in their floral arrangements, designed by Boulder Blooms and many other decisions to ensure there wasn’t any waste created by their day.
A delicious vegan meal was provided by Three Leaf Catering, insuring that this bride was going to have a meal that even she could enjoy. And wrapping up the evening with late night snacks to curb those munchies; it’s always a win in my book to help serve guests a cure for the effects of an open bar.
The dance floor was filled with loads of entertainment, DJ’d by our friend Ryan from Tri City Mobile. The bride’s nephew brought his A-Game, twisting and flipping non-stop to every beat that was dropped. But the parent dances were particularly special, as the bride shared a dance with her older brother and mom. Tears filled everyone’s eyes as Madison honored these wonderful people who’ve raised her.
The entire day was special in so many ways, but no more special than Madison and Andrew are as people. Toasted by their loving friends and family, these two were even serenaded with an original rap, performed by two of their bridesmaids. Getting to know their wedding party just added to the joy of the day, and Jeremy and I both felt like we left with full hearts and so many new friends.
Congrats Madison and Andrew! We’re so privileged to know you and wish you all the happiness in the world!
