From the bride...
We tried to keep things simple. I chose not to get caught up in what everyone expected of a wedding and really tried to make it fit the personalities of Vince and me. Our ceremony was held at the Lion’s Den as a storm was threatening in the distance, which made the dark hue of the sky intensify the very bright greens and blues in the surrounding mountain scenery. After the ceremony, we jumped on bikes and rode down to the reception in town forming a parade of cruisers with riders from 8 years old to 60 years old. One of my most memorable moments was the last dance of the night to Johnny Cash’s “When the Man Comes Around”. Vince and I are big Cash fans. Everybody was out on the dance floor for that song. My advice: Try to get married within 6 months, anymore time allotted for planning only allows you to spend more money and stress over details.
We had a delicious latenight doughnut bar!
