They Met & Married on a Mountaintop at Purg

Marsha & DJ  |  July 21, 2019

 

From the bride… Since we met on a ski trip at Purgatory Resort, we knew Purg was the only place we wanted to tie the knot. I could not recommend this venue enough. The staff went above and beyond to truly make our day stress free, and the food was amazing!

THE CEREMONY

We held the ceremony at Dante’s, which is located on the backside of the mountain at 10,500 feet. The views of the San Juan Mountains were breathtaking. We had our best friend officiate,  another friend played the guitar, while another friend sang. It was the perfect!
