In late July, we started a new adventure and moved to Richmond, Virginia! We will miss Colorado and always reminisce on all the wonderful memories we have from our time living in Boulder. I lived there for about 6 years and Tyler for about 5. We both had the BEST college experience at CU Boulder. We made such amazing friends, had SO much fun, took full advantage of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, and went out with a bang by getting married at Chautauqua. But it was time for a new adventure for this little family!
Boulder is very much a college town, which makes it such a blast, but we eventually grew out of that party scene, especially as a young married couple. We also both really missed the South. Richmond is Tyler’s hometown and where most of his family lives. This was definitely an attractive factor because family is important to us. Tyler’s family is so awesome and I’m blessed to call them my family now! We thought long and hard about our decision to move and made the choice very intentionally, considering all factors.
Richmond is a really cool/hip, charming, sleepy Southern city with so much to do! You get the best of both worlds because it’s an hour to the Blue Ridge Mountains and 2 hours to the beach. We are living in a great house in a precious neighborhood and we are loving it! There are cute little neighborhood grocery stores, restaurants, and old pharmacies. The weather is also another underrated factor we considered, Virginia truly has 4 beautiful seasons. It’s the dead heat of summer right now and it’s honestly pleasant (plus I love the humidity). It’s truly the perfect place for us to start our lives together and we look forward to all our adventures on the East Coast!
Here are some beautiful pictures that Tyler took at Pippin Hill Vineyard and Farm when the limelight hydrangeas were in full bloom. Virginia is so dreamy y’all. I’m falling more and more in love with Richmond and the Blue Ridge Mountains!
We got married on June 24, 2017 at Chautauqua in Boulder, Colorado and it was the BEST day of our lives! Everything was absolutely perfect. We had so much fun celebrating our marriage with all our friends and families! We truly feel so loved by everyone and we are thankful to have so many special people in our lives. Thank you to everyone who came out to Boulder to party with us! We also had people in our hearts who could not make it that were with us in spirit. Tyler and I are loving married life and we couldn’t be happier! You can now call me Camille Glotz!
Just wanted to give everyone a little sneak peak at the wedding pictures I received from our photographer thus far. I will post the rest of them and the link to view them all once they’re all ready in a few weeks! I love every single one and will cherish them forever. Tina Joiner was our wedding photographer and she did a fantastic job, I highly recommend her if you are getting married in Colorado. Ladybird Poppy also blew it out of the water with our stunning bouquets and archway. We were blessed with a beautiful Colorado summer day and a totally stress free wedding!
P.S. I had to throw in an iPhone video my friend took of us getting sent off 🙂
We recently got our engagement pictures back from our wedding photographer and they’re so sweet! I love every single one and they will always be special to me. We took these in late October up Flagstaff Mountain at Lost Gulch Overlook. It was such a beautiful, and exceptionally warm day, to take photos. Our photographer was excellent and she captured our love and sense of adventure so well. I will definitely cherish these forever! They make me so happy. Luckily wedding planning has been easy and stress free thus far which is such a blessing. Our engagement is already flying by. Only about 7 more months until we tie the knot! We are celebrating our engagement with family and friends down in Louisiana next week so we are excited about that! Tyler and I are happier and closer than ever. Get ready for a love overload!!
I want to share some more pics from our Aspen vacation and from my Dad’s wedding on top of Aspen mountain! We had so much fun. It was great for our family to all be together in such a beautiful place. We ate lots of good food, drank lots of champagne & sparking rosé, enjoyed the Aspen farmer’s market, tubed the Roaring Fork river, some daredevils of the group (not me haha) cliff jumped at Devil’s bathtub, and just relaxed! The Roaring Fork valley is definitely a special and stunning place. I feel like it’s necessary for me to take a week off from work a few times a year just to unplug and get back in touch with myself and my family.
We are getting married at Chautauqua Park here in beautiful Boulder, Colorado on Saturday, June 24th, 2017!!We are loving engaged life thus far and have had so much fun picking our wedding venue! Props to Tyler for the idea of doing it at Chautauqua. There’s a lot more planning to do but since we got our venue locked down, we wanted to make an announcement on here! Of course, formal save the dates will go out in the mail towards the end of this year. The ceremony will be outdoors on the Chautauqua green with a stunning view of the flatirons. The reception will follow in the Chautauqua dining hall right next to the green. It will be an indoor/outdoor reception with a tent, band, and buffet. When Tyler and I went to check out the venue, there was a wedding going on outside on the green and that seriously sold us!! Check out the pics below. We even walked to our appointment with the event coordinator because it’s only a few blocks from our house. So easy and yet so stunningly beautiful!! Chautauqua is at the base of the flatirons so it really couldn’t be anymore perfect and it’s also a national historic landmark with tons awesome hiking trails. It’s so us. Link to our wedding website and Honeyfund below. We are so excited to get married in front of all our family and friends! #GlotzofLove
It’s surreal that Tyler and I are engaged!! I am writing this the morning after my 23rd birthday, the day after Tyler proposed to me. It was pure bliss waking up with my fiancé this morning. I am beyond thrilled that we are spending the rest of our lives together! Yesterday was the greatest day of my life thus far. The love jitters were uncontrollable haha!! We are both so grateful that we found the loves of our life and cannot wait to get married. Thank you so much to our wonderful family and friends for all their love and support. Apologies if we were not the best with our phones yesterday, we were trying to savor the moment and were overwhelmed with happiness!!
So the proposal story. The weather was looking to be a pretty rainy/stormy afternoon on my birthday so we decided to go on a morning mountain adventure in lieu of going camping. Tyler drove us up to Dream Canyon, which is just as dreamy as it sounds! We were hanging out and admiring the view at the overlook and all of a sudden Tyler said my name, Camille. He proceeded to get down on one knee and pulled out a wooden jewelry box. At this point, I knew what was happening and had a giant smile from ear to ear. He gave a little speech before opening the box and told me how he wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and that I am the love of his life. He opened the box and revealed a GORGEOUS diamond and sapphire ring. It was his family ring. That’s when he asked me to marry him. I immediately said yes and started kissing him. He then put the ring on my wedding ring finger (removing the promise ring he had given me–he sure kept his promise!!). This was by far the best and most memorable moment in my life. We stayed at dream canyon just hugging, kissing, loving on each other, talking, etc. for a while afterwards until we decided to head back to Boulder to share the news with my mom and grandmother (who are in Boulder this weekend) and all our other family members and friends. Our phones blew up like crazy and were dead in less than an hour after the news was shared!! We feel so loved by everyone and we are just so incredibly happy to be engaged. For those who have asked, we have literally no clue about any wedding details haha. Tyler graduates from CU in May 2017 so, it will definitely be next summer sometime because we met in the summer, it’s the best season, and we need time to plan everything! It’s also probably going to be in Colorado and I will definitely be wearing a flower crown.
For those who are interested, here is our story of how we meet and fell in love! Tyler and I met for the first time way back in the fall of 2012. That seems like yesterday to me but, in reality that was 4 years ago…wow. Anyways, I was a sophomore at CU Boulder and he was fresh off the greyhound bus from his hometown of Richmond, Virginia. I use the word fresh very sarcastically because he was quite the opposite in all his sexy, southern, home bum-esque appeal. Pretty sure all he had was a backpack to his name, and a small one at that. I have to give major credit to one of my best friends from college and roommate at the time, Alli, for allowing Tyler and his other 2 other traveling friends (whom I have a deep affection for now) in our home because to be honest, I was not exactly comfortable with them being there at first haha! Alli was dating one of Tyler’s best friends from home, Dan, who was also attending CU and lived one block away from us. Tyler and his friends were in between crashing at Dan’s place, camping, and crashing at our place. Tyler and I were obviously in different places in our life when we first met but, I knew from the instant meeting him that he was 1) an awesome, brave, and smart person and 2) that I wanted to be close friends with him (maybe even more than friends hehe). Tyler has since told me that he mentioned to Dan that he wanted to marry me before he even really knew me, which I find really adorable and romantic. But like I said, we were in very different places in life and it wasn’t until the following summer in early June of 2013 that we became romantically involved, although we remained good friends throughout that period of time. After about 2-3 weeks of ‘hanging out’ and hiking at the beginning of the summer, Tyler asked me to be his girlfriend which I happily said yes to! It immediately felt like the start of something incredibly, which it was. Ever since then, we have fallen more and more in love every single day of being together. We have been through so much together and we know that we want to be together forever . Our relationship is truly the most special thing and we love each other unconditionally. Fast forward to now, 2016, we live in a cute little duplex together that we have been dwelling in for about 2 and a half years now. I graduated from CU Boulder and have an ‘adult’ office job. Tyler is finishing up his degree in computer science at CU Boulder (he’s a genius just so you know). We have an adorable American Bulldog, Waldo, who makes many features on the blog/Instagram. He is our first child and is spoiled rotten! It’s funny because Waldo’s birthday (June 21) coincides with our anniversary. So this year Waldo will turn 3 years old and we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary! We don’t have an exact day as to when we started dating but, we know it was in mid to late June so we just stick with Waldo’s birthday so we both always remember haha. It’s like Waldo is our spirit love child lol. Okay, too far…haha. Now we are are engaged and are the happiest we have ever been!!
Over the weekend Tyler and I went to Boulder Falls for the first time ever!! We made the choice not to bring Waldo since we were unsure of the trail conditions and since it’s technically closed. I like to follow the rules (sometimes) but in my opinion, you can’t close nature. C’mon Boulder! The weather forecast wasn’t looking promising to do much else outdoors so we decided to say screw it and adventure anyway!!! I’ve been dying to see Boulder Falls but it has been closed for almost the entire 5 years I’ve lived here. I came to the realization that people safely visit all the time and just go around the closed off rope sign. It was a great day to visit because 1) we were the only ones there so that was really nice and 2) it has been raining recently + snow melt so the falls were raging. The canyon was all foggy and mystical, it was so romantic and relaxing. Pics below 🙂
