About Nina Larsen Reed
Nine years ago, I bought a one-way ticket from Norway to Colorado, packed my suitcase and my camera, and headed out on what’s turned into a bigger adventure than I ever could have imagined.
Instead of spending a year in Boulder before returning to the small island I grew up on, I fell in love. I fell in love with the boundless blue skies, the Rocky Mountain hiking trails, and with a splitboarder named Justin.
And as I spent more time exploring Colorado, I realized how much I love sharing this playground I call home with couples like you.
I live, work, and play in Colorado for the exact same reasons you want to get married here.
Hiking and feeling close to nature every day. Going to local farmer’s markets and spending too much money on cheese. Ordering everything from coffee to ice cream to cider in flights. Complaining about snow storms in June, but loving patio days in January. Feeling dressed up when I put on Birkenstocks and a sun dress. Being surrounded by people who are high on life.
Fun Fact #1
Justin and I had our first date at the Rio in Boulder for margaritas, and our fifth date was in a hot tub at the annual thrift store ski party at A-Basin.
Fun Fact #2
I am a Colorado girl through and through — hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing. But camping? No thanks. Too many bears, not enough of my cats. I hit the trails during the day and get home for kitty snuggles after dark.
Fun Fact #3
Didn’t I just say I’m a Colorado girl? A Norwegian-raised one. I literally cross-country skied to school as a kid, but now I only break out the skis for hut trips and backcountry adventures.
Fun Fact #4
I’m low-key obsessed with France, and dream about living there one day. I’ve been four times now, baked – and eaten – more macarons than I can count, and I even started taking French classes at CU so I can better chat with locals.
“Nina is super knowledgeable of so many breathtaking locations throughout the state, both well know and hidden gems. She helped select the perfect spot for our wedding day and even with the heavy snowfall this year becoming an obstacle, days before the wedding Nina helped us find a new location that would ensure we did not feel as if we were settling. At no point did we ever feel stressed about the relocation and we owe this all to Nina!”
