Janelle & Tommy’s Wedding: Boulder Sunrise Amphitheater – 8/28/2011
August finds the Hippie Limo making its favorite trip up Flagstaff mountain near Chautauqua Park to Boulder’s Sunrise Amphitheater for another wedding. This time its Janelle and Tommy Stover who are joining hands, hearts, and lives. This ride was extra special for this couple as both have fond memories and deep affections for air-cooled VWs. Tommy in particular looked forward to having the Hippie Limo be their special wedding ride because he has always wanted to own a 21-Window Deluxe Samba Microbus. Funny how birds of a feather flock together, especially since half a dozen guests at the wedding stopped to comment on our microbus and tell us stories about the ones they had in the past or were currently restoring.
As planned, the Hippie Limo arrived in time to ferry the ecstatic couple from their ceremony to their reception at the Hotel Boulderado. Not as planned was the downpour that started just as they boarded. Sadly, that meant that the sunroof had to remain closed during the journey down, which is one of the best features of the Hippie Limo, even more so in the mountains. When the couple weren’t making eyes at each other they were studying our microbus’s interior and commenting on how complete and original it looked. The back windows and skylights began to steam up just a bit from the rain and their kissing as we pulled up to the hotel. The rain was slowing, so throwing caution (and good sense) to the wind, I told the waiting photographer to get ready and opened up the sunroof to allow the couple to strike the classic out-of-the-sunroof pose. Another great ride for the Hippie Limo, but nothing compared to the future Janelle and Tommy are about to embark upon.
