For some Brits in Colorado, the occasion was momentous.
A group of women gathered in Highlands Ranch to watch the re-broadcast of the Royal nuptials.
Party organizers say they were excited about the wedding, and it gave them the opportunity to celebrate both countries.

So, we’ve taken the street parties to the backyard and we’ve kind of got famous British weather for the day.”
