Over the last 22 years, Winding River Resort in Grand Lake, Colorado has become a place that represents love, family, and happiness to my parents, sister (the bride) and I. Several times as children, our parents gave Nicole and me the option of choosing to go to Disney World, or Grand Lake, each time we made the same choice - the Rocky Mountains. It was 22 years and 1 month prior to Nicole and Corey's wedding that our family made our first trip to this magical place to take part in the celebration of our aunt and uncle's wedding. This is where Nicole made her first-ever walk down the aisle as a flower girl. So it felt so fitting that Nicole would choose to take her most important walk down the aisle in the very same meadow. It was under cloudy skies, with a few raindrops falling, that Nicole and Corey said their vows, surrounded by the mountains, then followed with an open-air party, celebrating at one long table with their 90 guests. At sunset, with twinkle lights sparkling above, they shared their first dance and followed it by roasting marshmallows over the campfire. It was an incredible day surrounded in so much love!
