Dan and Courtney met at the Pearl Street Pub in Boulder. Courtney was enjoying a beer with a friend when Dan came up and asked the ladies to buy him a drink. Dan had made a bet on a foosball game in which he lost and ended up having to ask someone to buy him a drink. Although he did not get that drink, he did charm Courtney enough to set a date for the next week.
Dan proposed to Courtney in the snow with Mt Crested Butte in the background and of course their Puggle, Mr. Bentley, by his side. Dan told Courtney he wanted to check out one spot before they headed back to Boulder, so he took her to a place they had biked past on their first anniversary that had a beautiful view of Mt Crested Butte. He ran up a snowy hill and although Courtney was bewildered by this act, she ran up after to him to find him down on one knee at the top. Right after Courtney said yes the snow stopped and the clouds cleared to reveal a beautiful view of the mountain.
