Laura + Travis | The St Vrain Wedding | Longmont Colorado Photographer

May 2, 2019

Since I first heard about the new wedding venue in Longmont, I knew I had to work there. A hip, modern space without having to drive to Boulder or Denver…awesome! I grew up in Longmont, and have driven by this location a thousand times while going to the post office. It’s super convenient for me, and I was seriously so impressed with the space 🙂 It is just what Longmont needed, so it’s not surprising they are doing extremely well so far. When Kathryn Marble Photography asked me to shoot this St Vrain wedding with her, I responded with an enthusiastic YES! Laura and Travis are from Chicago and were hosting their destination wedding in Colorado. Everything came together beautifully…it was a truly awesome day!

My favorite parts of Laura and Travis’ big day were the great venue choice (as mentioned above), as well as all of the cool beer related wedding details. They are huge fans of craft beer, and have visited over 100 breweries, in eight different states together. So neat that they incorporated this into their wedding day. It made it so personal, and was extremely tastefully done. A progressive beer and cider menu during dinner, wheat centerpieces, a guestbook beer growler, and beer coaster escort cards were all perfect touches. We probably should have done this at our wedding too, Derek would have loved it 😉

The food at Laura and Travis’ St Vrain wedding was also pretty epic. Guests enjoyed the fun and scrumptious food stations. A biscuits, butters and jams station, a BBQ station, and a Mac and Cheese station with every topping you could imagine. Their was yumminess everywhere you turned! They even brought in Voodoo Donuts for guests to enjoy. I went home with an “oh captain, my captain” donut (white frosted donut topped with captain crunch cereal)!

Having grown up in Longmont, I was able to be extra helpful to Katy, Laura and Travis, by making some local recommendations too. Originally we planned to head over to Coot Lake (per my recommendation) to get some lake and mountain views in their wedding photos. On the day of, however, they decided they would rather not venture off too far. I recommended the Callahan House, because it is just a five minute walk from the St. Vrain. That worked out great for a few more outdoor bride and groom portraits. The Callahan House has beautiful, colorful gardens, and a nice fountain. It added a little variety to their pictures. They had no shortage of urban and modern backdrops at the St. Vrain. But then the Callahan House shots added in some lovely natural elements too…truly the best of both worlds!

For a beer inspired Colorado wedding, hops and wheat boutonnieres were a no-brainer! How cute are these?!

Wow, April was sure a busy month around here. 24 posts in 30 days…that’s for sure a record for me! May will not be as active, as my husband has started a new job, and won’t be having time off anytime soon. And I will be doing a lot more shooting too, which will take up many of my weekends. Including mini sessions this weekend. I still have a few slots left, if you are looking to book a session at a reduced rate 🙂

To see another of my favorite modern weddings, check out this awesomely eclectic Denver wedding at City Hall Events HERE. Shea’s fall session at Gross Reservoir is coming to the blog next. It was epic…so check back soon! Have a wonderful day, friends!
