In the last two months I am pretty sure I’ve seen more of the United States than I’ve seen in my whole life up until now. Between the cross country road trip, weekends in the Pacific Northwest, and an amazing wedding in Colorado exploring new parts of the US has been the theme of my summer.
For the Fourth of July weekend I was so lucky to get over to Winter Park, Colorado for the wedding of one of our oldest and dearest family friends. Michael has been like a big brother to me so seeing him getting married was wonderful – plus we got the chance to reunite with friends we hadn’t seen in far too many years.
Winter Park is exactly what you imagine when you think of a Colorado resort town. In the gorgeous summer weather it was filled to the brim the the most sporty, adventurous people imaginable. A good portion of the crowd was dressed like these guys, who were channeling Batman with the uber-intense biking gear.
After taking the lifts up to the Lodge for lunch, we went back down the mountain to head to a neighboring town take in the July 4th fireworks. Little did we know we’d have a much more beautiful show to watch courtesy of Mother Nature.
And then it was wedding time – the moment we’d all been waiting for! Natalie was one of the most stunning brides I’ve ever seen and Michael was the wise-cracking, handsome groom we all expected him to be. With a love story like something from a movie these two have a magical future ahead of them!
Cheers to the loveliest couple and thank you for sharing your beautiful weekend with us! *clink clink
