Kinsey and Brandon’s first date was at IHOP. Brandon drank a whole pot of coffee just to see what would happen. If that doesn’t show you how comfortable these two are around each other, then I don’t know what will.
Their goal for eloping in Boulder, Colorado was to just relax, soak in the views and be at peace in nature. They made it a goal to find fun and unique stays for their whole trip and found the coolest earthship home outside Boulder. Inside was filled with trees and plants and even vegetables and herbs that you could pick to cook with!
On their sun-filled wedding day, we hiked a couple miles, stopping along the way at cool lookouts and dense forest ovehangs, just soaking in all the small moments along the way. These two had their ceremony location alllll to themselves as they said their vows, exchanged rings and snacked on a charcuterie board from Wander + Graze.
As the sunset, we made our way back down the mountain, stopping to look at the sparkling city lights from above, and catching a glimpse of a few deer catching their evening snack. At the end of the night, after cake was cut, these two soaked in the hot tub and star views.
And let me tell you, hot tubbing is 100% going to be a recommendation for all future couples – what a fun way to end the night.
