March 9

Vail, Colorado


Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

I loved the homemade stuff! My mom made a lot of the little pine cone candle holders and I made the centerpieces. I also loved our cake topper (which was made by a friend), and the guestbook/tree that my bridesmaid who could not be present at the wedding made for us.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Shop around! I didn’t bother having things priced out and I think we could have saved a few bucks if I had.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Dave and I got to have 10 precious minutes completely to ourselves while we rode the gondola up to the top of the mountain immediately following our ceremony. I don’t think a lot of brides and grooms get any alone time to look at each other and say, “Wow, we are married!” It was really special and something I will cherish forever.
