Mindy and Taylor’s Brainard Lake wedding is probably one of the days that I get asked about the most. They chose this location, about 45 minutes from Boulder, for their laid-back boho inspired day – and it was perfect.
This was an itty bitty super non-formal affair. The groom and his guys arrived that morning to pick out a spot right next to the lake. The “aisle” was a the edge of the lakeshore. August is typically warm and sunny in Colorado but on this day the 13,000 foot peaks that were behind that surrounded us were hidden in the clouds. It was cold and misty and felt a little more like the Pacific Northwest than Colorado … but it couldn’t have been better.
After the ceremony we wandered around the area, taking pictures and enjoying the views. This place is crawling with moose and I was half hoping that one would crash the party (because how epic would that be?!) but it didn’t happen. Nevertheless, this day was an adventure and everyone involved were total troopers despite the wet, cold weather.
Mindy and Taylor had their reception back in Kansas City where their families live so there are no photos from that but we did manage to make it over to Nederland to goof around a bit. If you come to Boulder and don’t go to Nederland, you’re totally missing out! We rode the Carousel of Happiness, took photos in front of old buildings, and had a blast.
Here are some pictures from their day. Enjoy!
