From the bride, Shannon:
We were married in front of a beautiful pond on a Ranch in Mancos, Colorado. We lined the aisle with rustic watering cans filled with colorful flowers and said our vows under an archway Chris built for the occasion. Our reception took place on the ranch under a white party tent decorated with white twinkle lights and colorful Chinese lanterns. My father made the food; besides the fact that he is an exceptional chef, it was special to Chris and I because it made our reception feel more warm and personal.
Chris made me a pearl necklace and pearl earrings that I wore at the wedding! What a wonderful keepsake and something to pass down to our kids someday!
During our cash dance, my father paid to dance with Chris. It was hilarious! It caught Chris completely by surprise and made for great pictures and everyone thought it was funny.
