How did you two meet? Justin and I met online! We went on our first date in October of 2013 at a brewery in Denver.
What was the best memory from your wedding day? The best memory of our wedding day was our "first look" photos during the day before the ceremony. It was an opportunity for Justin and I to step away from everyone else, be outside in the beautiful, snowy woods near Gore Creek in Vail, and spend some time together just the two of us (plus Drake and Ashley of course, who captured the moment! Those are our favorite photos from the entire day.)
Do you have any advice for future couples getting married?
The best advice we can give in terms of wedding planning is to keep things simple and let the vendors do what they do best. Everyone we worked with truly knew how to do an excellent job, and when we followed their recommendations everything turned out wonderfully. We genuinely felt that things were all taken care of for us and we are so glad we didn't try to over-manage the event!
Where did you go on your honeymoon? We went to South Africa and the Seychelles for our honeymoon! We don't often get a lot of time off to travel so we decided to just go for it and do a big international trip. We did a safari at Ngala Safari Lodge in Kruger National Park, which was indescribably impressive and awe-inspiring, and then we stayed at the Banyan Tree Resort in the Seychelles.
