The ceremony was gorgeous! You can see from the pics that the setting was unbelievable. We were surrounded by nature while at the Sunrise Amphitheatre. It was a schlep up, but once we arrived, it allowed us to see all of Boulder just before sunset. Very picturesque!
After the ceremony, we headed to the reception which was in downtown Boulder at Rembrandt Yard. This is about when I decided that we would have to move to Boulder at some point in our future. Boulder is the perfect combination of "granola" and "metropolitan". Back to the reception...Brent and Andrea rented an art museum for the festivities. The entire day perfectly represented the couple. The ceremony was beautiful and outdoorsy while the reception was modern and simple. To top off the perfect afternoon, instead of cake, they had an ice cream bar!
The DailysSunday was our first full day in Boulder. We woke up late to recover from the eventful day before and headed to the downtown area to meet up with our new friends, Rod and Beth. Rob reconnected with Rod at the wedding (they used to work together) and we all got along really well. We ate at Mountain Sun Brewery where I officially had the best ranch dressing ever! After lunch, we rented some bikes and went exploring. This creek is just a couple streets off the main road in downtown Boulder. See, the perfect combo of nature vs. metro.
We spent the rest of Sunday roaming around and eating a crappy pizza dinner at a Colorado chain, Old Chicago. We were looking for another pizza place that was Yelp recommended, but couldn't find it anywhere. Either the address was wrong or it didn't exist anymore. By the time we strolled by Old Chicago, we were headachy hungry. Luckily, I was able to top off the evening with a delicious Nutella crepe.
Monday, sadly our last day in Boulder, we headed for the Celestial Seasoning's Factory with Rod and Beth, perfectly located on Sleepytime Drive. We had a tour of the factory and inhaled all kinds of very fragrant teas. With each step near a crate of boxed herbs and spices, the scent literally changed and filled the area. The Peppermint Room was perhaps my favorite. I have a new appreciation of tea!
After the tour, we said our good-byes to Rod and Beth. They were heading home to Orlando and we were heading to Denver...In my mind, Boulder was already my favorite city!
