Our Wedding

Eric and I were married in a Catholic Ceremony at the Beaver Creek Chapel in Avon, Colorado on September 1st, 2012.  Our reception took place at a lodge called SaddleRidge in Beaver Creek and it was definitely our dream wedding come true.

 
The wedding was also one big DIY project.  From growing our own pumpkins for table decor, to making escort card holders and cupcakes stands.  We did it all!

 
 

Wedding planning is definitely not for the faint of heart.  It was some serious work.  On more than one occasion, Eric and I said to one another "why didn't we just elope"? But, we survived the planning process and are so glad that we did.  I wouldn't have changed one thing about that day!


We also REALLY lucked out because Oktoberfest was going on in Beaver Creek that same weekend!  Eric is a beer lover so we knew that we had to check it out between the ceremony and reception.  It was probably one of the funnier experiences of my life.


This next picture is from outside of our reception site.  Little did we know when taking this picture that a bear was soon to visit up in those woods.  It created quite the excitement when everyone was hurried back inside.
