From the bride..
Durango is a very special place for both of us. I was born and raised in Durango, and Joel & I met while working together in Durango. We love Durango and think it is an amazing place to get hitched. Most of our guests came from out of town, and we were happy and excited to share such a wonderful place with them. Through the Durango Weddings Magazine we became familiar with the best wedding vendors in town. The magazine also inspired us to use our creative juices and personalize our wedding. We were pretty quick to agree on a western-ish motif. A lot of the “inspiration” came during our month-long stay on the beach in Costa Rica immediately following the proposal. Many sunny days on the beach drinking beer, and many rainy days in the jungle playing cribbage – each of the days produced inspiration for our wedding day. We had a cocktail hour both before and after the ceremony. In addition to drinks and appetizers, for the guest’s entertainment, we had our favorite lawn games: ladder golf, croquet, and bocce ball.
The day b efore the wedding, we organized a f ifty-person rafting trip for our guests down the Animas River via Outlaw Tours (see page 95).
