Emily + Alex
Our wedding day was a perfect reflection of our love story and even better than we imagined. More than a month later and we are still beaming at how magical the day was for us and our family. Alex and I met on a hiking trail in Big Bend National Park and knew very quickly that we were destined to be more than hiking friends. Our love is infused with a passion for adventure, the outdoors and family- and our wedding ceremony perfectly blended our love of rugged adventure and pristine natural beauty at Garden of the Gods Resort and Club. If I could go back in time, I would relive 10/21/2021 often and bask in the loving glow of the day – eat the stellar food all over and dance like I’m at burning man. My best advice to those planning a wedding is to have an awesome partner (it helps if they are an engineer) and make the day a story of your relationship. We included intentional elements that were important to us like meditation and allowing each guest to give us a blessing, which made the whole day feel like us. Our wedding day felt like the perfect reflection of our quirky love and we are so grateful to the incredible humans that made it all come together. Cheers to love that gives freedom and a life full of adventure!
