Boettcher Mansion / The Lyric Wedding

This wedding was split on two different days between a very small wedding ceremony at Boettcher Mansion in Golden and a larger wedding reception party at The Lyric in Ft. Collins. The ceremony was held outside in the gazebo in the Boettcher Mansion gardens. The bride’s grandfather officiated the emotional and stirring ceremony in this charming small space. We photographed the formals in the pine forest behind the gazebo and then the couple and I headed out to the overlook to get some epic wedding day photos together, we even got a little bit of a rainbow.

For the reception we went to the very funky and fun movie theater in Fort Collins, The Lyric. This place is an eclectic mix of old boats, buses, doors and various other objects spread around the property like a junk garden. We photographed some more extended family formals, cut the cake and then they had some toasts, speeches and first dances in the dark in front of the movie screen. The couple finished their reception with a phone light exit and an escape in a 1950s Bel Air.
