A University Courtship

Brit & Danny  |  June 8th  |  Boulder, Colorado

From the photographer, Rochelle Mort:
Britt and Danny met 10 years ago while attending The University of Colorado Boulder.  After a very long courtship, a master’s degree at USC and living in 4 major cities, they decided to return to Boulder (where it all began) for their wedding. Friends and family traveled from around the world to attend this festive event. It was catered by Illegal Pete’s where Britt worked when they met. The venue was the Koenig Alumni Center on campus and we used the beautiful campus grounds for picture perfect shoot locations. I loved the colorful palette of this wedding and the carefree details. This wedding was truly about celebrating and not about over the top details. Danny is about the funniest person you will ever meet and he kept us laughing all day. The day was completely lovely in every way.

Organic Farm Wedding in Boulder

Kelly & Jason | July 6th | Boulder, Colorado

From the bride: Kelly:
We got married on a working organic vegetable and flower farm, making the location an experience in itself. There were decorated nooks throughout the property, vintage style outdoor sinks, and a giant brick oven. Guests even got to experience the venue’s “fancy” outdoor restrooms…spruced-up port-a-potties, complete with rugs, lamps and flowers! The homemade organic food was, by a unanimous vote, a highlight of the night!

I did a lot of searching on the internet and looked at pictures from farm weddings and dinners.  We picked the venue first, wedding dress second, colors third, and then made everything fit from there.  

Since the venue specializes in wildflowers, we picked colors to match the environment – a range of purples, blues, and greens.

Writing our own ceremony and vows was a special part of our wedding.  We wrote the ceremony and traditional vows together.  Then, the morning of the wedding, we both got up early to write our own personal vows.  Sharing these commitments and personal sentiments will always be my most cherished memory of the wedding.

Our officiant was a close family friend, which made the ceremony uniquely personal and intimate.
Writing our ceremony and vows took the most research.  It took some time to create the structure of our ceremony and include the important elements, but, at the same time, make sure we personally believed in each sentence.  Writing the ceremony was a very personal journey, and it helped us define our relationship and beliefs.It had been drizzling all day and the storm broke just as the ceremony ended.  We finished our vows in the rain and spent much of the night under the tent, sheltered from intermittent rain.  Our guests were amazingly resilient and you would never have known we were surrounded by bad weather.  

We each picked our favorite mini-desserts and only served our favorite Colorado micro-brew beers.

Rather than leaving early with a send off party, we were the last ones to leave (in our Subaru.)  We loved dancing under the tent with the family and friends who stayed late into the night and didn’t mind the pouring rain.

 My Advice: 1) Write your own private vows to share during the ceremony; 2) Search for local small business vendors so your day feels special and intimate; and 3) Ask a personal friend to officiate the ceremony.

Jason’s Advice: 1) Spend the money for live music – we loved the Meniscus band; 2) Don’t sweat things out of your control, like weather; and 3) Take as many pictures as possible before the wedding so you have more time to spend with your friends and family.
