So this post is actually a product of my baiting…er, boasting on Twitter in response to BurghBaby’s tweet a few days ago about this insane Alice in Wonderland wedding. Check that out and you will lose your mind over how cool it is. Anyway…BurghBaby joked that all other weddings were lame by comparison and I couldn’t resist chirping back that my snowboard wedding was so not lame and I have the pictures and video to prove it. Unspoken in my tweet: pleeeeeeeeeease ask to see them!!!!!!!!! I seriously love to brag about our wedding because it really was the best day ever and it really was super cool, even if we had pretty much no budget. And by no budget I mean no money. Lucky me, she challenged me to post pictures…and conveniently my anniversary is today (er, yesterday by the time I uploaded the post) which makes it even more appropriate at the moment.
I wanted this to be a long post with more details about what we did but I’m going to try and keep it succinct and post a bunch of pictures instead.
We chose Steamboat because they were the most supportive, accomodating, and helpful when I called them and explained what we wanted to do. We used a clearing overlooking the Yampa Valley where a Sunday worship is normally held. The resort is on public land so we were told we could pretty much do whatever we wanted. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.
And they lived happily ever after…
If somehow you landed on this site because you want to plan a similar wedding, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. I had a hard time finding any information when I was doing my wedding planning but I’d love to share my “lessons learned” anyone who wants to do something like it or answer any questions anyone has. We obviously had a small budget but we looked at all kinds of stuff. I have lots of ideas that we decided not to spend money on, so let me know. I also tried to get sponsorship with several companies, so I can tell you about that and share my ideas about that too.
