Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art Wedding | Elaine and John

Elaine and John have an affectionate chemistry that is just beautiful to watch.  When we initially met for cookies and hot chocolate I was struck by just how comfortable and cozy they were with each other.  The little touches, the smiles, and the check-ins on the other’s opinions was so lovely to see and made me infinitely excited to photograph they August Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art Wedding.

On the day of their wedding, I met up with Elaine and John at the St. Julien in Boulder to hang out with them as they got ready.  The steady stream of family and friends who excitedly entered the room set the stage for a family-centric, love-filled celebration.

Before we get to the photos, I’ll share a few answers from their pre-wedding questionnaire because I think it gives the perfect glimpse into what they value most in their relationship.

We wanted to incorporate parts of each of our cultures, while keeping things relatively simple. So our inspiration is a mix of family background, the mountains, and Chinese and Jewish cultures.

The feel will be unique to us…we did everything how we wanted to do it, not adhering to a single theme.

A perfect Saturday is waking up in a tent in the desert, cooking a big breakfast, climbing all day, and then a big campfire under a clear sky going to do it all again the next day.

Meant to be.
