Eleven years, to the day, after Matt and Carey first kissed as college students they exchanged vows and shared their first kiss as husband and wife. While dating, Matt and Carey created many special memories hiking the Rockies. They thought the summit of Vail Mountain would be the perfect location for their destination wedding. Guests arrived via gondola from Lionshead Village and were treated to stunning views of the Colorado Rockies and golden aspens in peak fall foliage. The ceremony, officiated by their friend Karen, was short and sweet with a healthy dose of humor. Karen unexpectedly produced Carey’s little red shorts that first caught Matt’s eye eleven years ago. Matt and Carey may never have shared that fateful first kiss without the help of those little red shorts.
After the wedding the bridal party returned to Lionshead for a quick photo session and then on to Saddle Ridge at Beaver Creek. Saddle Ridge was the perfect venue to conclude the celebration with it’s rustic decor and mountain views surrounding the dance floor.
