I'm so glad you are here to check out some recent work. I'm a Colorado wedding photographer that shoots all around the country. The blog is filled with full wedding and portrait sessions, and includes weddings planning tips and inspiration.
Erin and Andrew had a small intimate Halfway House wedding in Boulder, Colorado with their immediate family. They met when Erin was doing her Masters in Atmospheric Science at the University at Albany and Andrew was a post-doc in the same department. With their offices only a few steps away and them frequently being the first people into the building, they started talking and immediately hit it off.
It wasn’t until a little over a year after they met, that they exchanged numbers at a department picnic and frequently found themselves spending more and more time together. First, it was just afternoon frisbee, then lunchtime walks that became longer and longer, exchanging food they had made, until soon they were dating…
Andrew proposed to Erin during a four-day backpacking trip on Four Pass Loop in Maroon Bells Wilderness (Colorado). Over each mountain pass they summited, Andrew gave Erin something symbolic of their relationship–a frisbee for how they started dating on the first pass, the risotto recipe they made on their first date together on the second pass, and a picture that was symbolic of their long-distance relationship on the third pass. And on the fourth pass, Andrew proposed to Erin where she ecstatically said yes! How adorable!!
More about Halfway House Weddings;
This wedding venue sits halfway (get it?) up Flagstaff Mountain, just on the edge of the city. It’s a great spot for weddings and ceremonies because of its beauty, ease, and price point. It is wheel chair accessible, pet friendly, and has views of the flatirons and downtown Boulder, Colorado. It has both inside and outside options, but I personally love what Erin and Andrew did, and had their ceremony on the small deck with the flatirons in the background! Halfway House weddings can accommodate up to 49 people, but with this space, I’d say less is more. You don’t want to feel too cramped. There are no bathrooms here (other than pit toilets nearby) and parking can be limited.
After their emotional ceremony, we all headed over to Rembrandt Yard in downtown Boulder, where more of their friends and family were waiting for them! Another great option is to have your wedding reception and dinner across the street at the delicious Flagstaff House!
