From the bride, Melanie:
We held a small and intimate wedding ceremony at Andrews Lake on Molas Pass surrounded by the beauty of the mountains overlooking the lake. Our wedding party was our dog Brewster as the ring bearer and his sister Dallas as the flower girl. The intimacy and personalization of the ceremony itself was very important to us. There were so many moments when I had to close my eyes to focus on the moment and the tremendous feelings that were overwhelming me. Something else very special to us was all the wildlife we were greeted by during and after our wedding ceremony. In the middle of our vows, an osprey flew overhead squawking for attention. It was a precious moment. Also, as were walking down a path to take more photos, a chipmunk came out to greet us. Finally, on the way back to the car, we turned to find three ducks in tow. How perfect!
MEMORABLE MOMENT when Chris read me his vows that he had written, I cried and wanted to kiss him right then and there; everyone laughed when I almost did and had to back away.
All of our vendors were so amazing that I could never give them a high enough rating or say enough positive things about them. They made everything perfect and we were so lucky to meet such wonderful people. The people and vendors of Durango made our dream wedding come true and there is no amount of planning you could ever do to make this happen. Thank you Durango!!
