How did you meet?
"We met at the hotel we worked at together in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and after I left the job, he pursued and wooed me with special dates of hiking and going to happy hour at our favorite spots. We are a perfect match. We loved skiing and camping together and we both knew from the beginning it was meant to be. He proposed to me at the restaurant and bar of the same hotel our story began."
Wedding Planning Part 1... and 2:
"We originally had planned a larger wedding, with many family and friends in Colorado, but due to the worldwide pandemic, our plans had to change.

We love the mountains, the outdoors, and camping, so we chose a nearby spot that fit us perfectly with gorgeous views and showed our appreciation for the area we are so lucky to call home. We chose more greenery than flowers to reflect our love for the natural beauty of Colorado and the simplicity, yet elegance of our personalities and styles. Our intimate ceremony with our parents was beautiful and we look forward to renewing our vows with our friends and family next year!"
