Lisa + Jeff | Someday, We’ll Meet Again
They made eyes at each other and flirted hard in High School, but always mobile military families can be hard on budding romances. The next moment you’re on the other side of the globe, making new friends and wonder what will happen to old friends. Along comes adulthood with marriage, children, careers and everyone looses touch … until social media came along. L & J rekindled online, both founding themselves single again and both looking for a new beginning. Some cashed frequent flyer miles and the chance hitting it off between all their kids gave them signals that destiny was in play. Fast forward to an epic day of celebration orchestrated by Mark Christopher Weddings. This 21st Century Brady Bunch reality show is something to see, and we’re so pleased we got to document it.
Jessica + Treavor | Air Cooled Love
That car. Oh, that car. Treavor’s 1960 Volkswagen Beetle has been at the core of this couple’s relationship. She first saw him in it — “hey, cute car” — and keeping it clean and nourished has been their main hobby together. No surprise it made a starring role on wedding day. In addition to keeping the classic Beetle running, Treavor’s a handyman with extreme skills. All the decor was DIY, giving their day a special homemade touch.
Jen & Chris | Mount Vernon Country Club Wedding
A few years back, Jennifer’s friend got her psyched-up before a night out in Killington, Vermont – “you might meet your future husband tonight!” That night, two skiers fell in love. Fast forward to Mount Vernon Country Club and Jen’s mom walked her down the aisle, starting the ceremony off with a happy vibe, which didn’t stop all day.
It’s not uncommon at Colorado weddings to pay tribute to our famed ski areas, saving the Continental Divide’s namesake for the head table. If you can’t have a wedding on the mountain, bring the mountain to the wedding. Ask Mount Vernon to make you those caviar flutes — they explode in your mouth. Congratulations to J+C — I expect to run into this couple on a Black Diamond someday when I least expect it.
Next up, Elaine & Shane …
Elaine & Shane | Mount Vernon Country Club Wedding
Elaine & Shane fit together like fingers in a glove (or keys on a keyboard). It was a great day starting with ceremony at Most Precious Blood Parish in Denver. Neither bride nor groom are musicians, yet both come from such musical families. Now, this was a first for me. Together the mothers of both the bride and groom performed a ceremony duet. Priceless. After some photo play at Red Rocks, a super fun reception took place at Mt. Vernon Country Club with all their great foothills views! For the ring shot, I might’ve stretched it a bit … “E” and “S” on the DJ’s computer. How am I doing?
Wedding just aren’t any story. They are the unique coming together of families, and the ultimate exercise in self realization. The day in which you say, “World, this is who I am, this is what I stand for, and this is who I love.” If you’re planning a Mount Vernon Country Club event, I’d be honored to document it.
