Washed out bridge cancels weddings in Boulder

BOULDER, Colo. – What’s worse than rain on your wedding day?

Try a swollen creek washing out the only bridge to your dream wedding spot.

This week’s flooding destroyed the bridge to Boulder’s Red Lion Restaurant, forcing couples to scramble to find last minute accommodations for hundreds of guests this weekend.

Andrea Maneely and Tom Prince met waiting tables there and thought it would be the perfect place to exchange their vows. They had to find another spot at the last minute for double the price.

Manager Christina Mueller says she doesn’t know how she’s going to make up the $100,000 in lost business but she says she’s getting an attitude check from her brides.

Sunday’s bride plans to take up a collection to help fix the bridge.
