Summer Camp Wedding Photography | Colorado Mountain Ranch in Boulder

September 28, 2016

Colorado Summer Camp Wedding

I am so excited to share this cool Colorado summer camp wedding on the blog today. I never had the opportunity to go to a real summer camp as a kid and I was obsessed with the idea. One of my all time favorite movies is Wet Hot American Summer and I had multiple favorite summer camp themed movies as a kid. (Heavyweights anyone? What about Camp Nowhere which I recently watched again and it surprisingly still stands up pretty well)

Needless to say, when Lauren and Galen told me that their wedding celebration would be taking place at a summer camp in the mountains of Boulder, CO I was pumped! Colorado Mountain Ranch is a beautiful place for a wedding. It’s pretty high up in the mountains and it has beautiful views from the big covered wraparound porch at the Ponderosa Lodge. I loved the simple rustic feel of their wedding day. The ceremony took place in the big outdoor amphitheater where guests sat on benches smelling the fresh mountain air and enjoying the view of Longs Peak in the distance. And the Pondersosa Lodge where the reception dinner and dancing was held was the perfect setting for a wedding with its log cabin style giving it a nice intimate and cozy feel. Instead of an official first dance Lauren and Galen opted to do a cute rendition of “Baby, it’s Cold Outside” before opening up the dance floor for the evening. It was a fun touch and different from anything I’ve seen before at a wedding!

This was a pretty neat fireplace decor because the owners of the ranch found it after the huge fire that came through the property a handful of years ago.
