Lori & Jake  |  August 14th  |  Durango, Colorado

From the bride, Lori:
It was the most gorgeous day ever!  A good friend married us, another friend played guitar, we wrote our own vows and a special friend recited her words of marriage wisdom which ended with never go to bed angry or with your pants on.Durango Mountain ResortI tried on several dresses in multiple stores that I really liked.  We saved the most expensive store for last and as we were walking in, I commented to my Mom that I could not believe how girls cry when they put on a dress, it’s ridiculous – it’s just a dress.  So we are in the store and I walk out with a Melissa Sweet gown, my mom takes one look and starts crying, then I start to bawl.  I’ve now learned that when you find that dress, it’s such an emotional moment you can’t help but cry.
Durango Mountain ResortDurango Mountain ResortWe had over 100 out-of-town guests arrive in Durango so we planned a few activities including a group float down the Animas River.  We had over 40 tubes snaking down the river through town; it was so much fun!
Durango Mountain ResortI hate to waste flowers, so I wanted to use something that would not get thrown away, but instead taken home and enjoyed – succulents were the perfect solution.
