I’ll never forget talking with Eric on the phone about getting engaged and hearing him say, “I figure, we love God and we love each other…that’s all you need right?” Well, let me think about that… umm, yep pretty much!
I knew when I first met Mari that she was someone special, that she was likely going to have a permanent place in our family. You see, Eric is my brother in-law. David’s younger brother- lover of fried chicken, obscure music, the occasional 14er or mountain biking adventure and now… deeply in love with Mari. They met through their church in Denver, which I give my mother in-law all the credit for. She’s been telling him for years “I bet you’ll meet a sweet girl at church…” and she was right! Mari walked into Eric’s life and it was game over. They’ve been inseparable ever since and I couldn’t be happier about it. Mariana is from Costa Rica and we were all so lucky to have her family fly out and join us for the wedding day! It was a beautiful day that showed how 2 families can unite, even when 3,000+ miles separate them.
Eric and Mari opted for an intimate gathering at Sapphire Point, overlooking Lake Dillon in Summit County, followed by dinner in Dillon. We were all a bit nervous about the weather…the clouds had been building all day and you could see storms raging off in the distance. Sure enough, just as the processional began, the snow/sleet/rain/hail starting falling. So true to Colorado! But with big risks come big rewards, like the beautiful sunset we got at the end of the day. It was so beautiful watching the low clouds settle as the storm slowly departed with the sunset. David and I had a wonderful day celebrating with family and welcoming our new sister-in law to the family. We love you guys so much!
I promise David doesn’t typically photobomb the bride and groom 😉
