Cat & Tim’s Wedding: Red Rocks Trading Post & Visitor’s Center – 4/13/2013
The Hippie Limo emerged from its winter hibernation just in time for Cat and Tim’s spring wedding at Red Rocks Trading Post & Visitor’s Center. Cat and Tim hold the record for making the earliest pre-booking for our one-of-a-kind ride – just over one and a half years prior to their big day! This contrasts noticeably with our 1 month pre-booking average! Obviously this is a couple who like to plan with an eye toward detail!
My instinct about this couple was confirmed when I spoke with their coordinator Danielle Odil of Entwined Planning to make the final arrangements for the couple’s midnight ride to the St. Julian Hotel in Boulder. Danielle immediately impressed me with her excellent communication skills and responsiveness to my questions. As always, I wanted to gather as much information about the couple and their expectations as I could in order to give them yet one more blissful smile on their wedding day.
Cat had special motivation for hiring the Hippie Limo to be the final touch to the wedding. Her husband is a fan of old VWs (and currently restoring a vintage Beetle), and she wanted to surprise him with a ride in a Samba, one of the rarest and most special VWs in the history of the brand. Cat also had a special request that I play “Under My Thumb” by The Rolling Stones at the full capacity of our 1000-watt sound system as I rolled up to meet the couple. She obviously wanted to send a tongue-in-cheek message to her freshly minted partner.
When I received this request, I asked if she would be interested in an unusual playlist I had put together years ago called Sardonic Wedding. The playlist included her requested song as well as songs with titles such as “(Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Nowhere Man,” “I’ll Feel So Much Better (When You’re Gone),” ” Thrill is Gone,” and “Suspicious Minds.” As you might guess, I never thought this playlist would see the light of day, but Cat told her coordinator that she LOVED the idea and to please queue it up. I knew these were my kinda people!
You can get a glimpse into the fun at Cat and Tim’s quirky and classy wedding, as documented by the amazingly artistic R.J. Kern, by visiting their special album on his site. We wish Cat and Tim a lifetime of all of the smiles, joy, and off-center cleverness we see in their pictures.
