When we chose to get married in Marble, Colorado back in July, we knew that it would be a small ceremony. Not because we didn't want each and every one of our family members and friends to be there with us, but because the location was so small, we knew there wouldn't be enough room! Fun fact: there was hardly enough parking for those of us that were there!
You all are important to us. Hugely important actually. And we want to celebrate with you on May 23rd. Please join us not only to celebrate the love that we have for each other, but also to celebrate the love that we have for you!
P.s. There WILL be cake, drinks, and food, so that should help you make the decision (:
Our First Date
Heather and John's first date wasn't so much of a date as it was a meeting. They got together for coffee at Denny's and talked about pretty much everything there was to discuss, especially anything nerdy. It was nice meeting one another and seeing that they had so many things in common.
On October 19th 2017, Heather had to stay at work late for the Fall Festival celebration at school. This is an annual event that keeps her at work for a full 12 hours and usually Heather is very tired after the event. Having asked John to make dinner (cheeseburgers to be exact), Heather was looking forward to coming home and enjoying that dinner and when she arrived at home, the house was completely dark. This didn't make any sense to Heather because she was expecting John to be home. Upon entering the house, Heather realized that John was in fact still there and that he had turned some soft music on to usher her in. On the coffee table was a pumpkin that was carved with a diamond ring and candles lighting up the table. Flowers adorned the pumpkin. It was truly beautiful! But Heather walked right by it! She needed to set down all of her work bags and get started on dinner after all! When she turned around, Heather realized that John was all dressed up (he was even wearing fancy shoes) and he brought her back into the living room. Getting down on one knee, John asked Heather to marry him and she said yes!
John and Heather initially planned to have one ceremony and reception with family and friends in May of 2019. After thinking about their love for Marble, Colorado it was decided that the two would do a small ceremony in 2018 and a larger, more family oriented ceremony in 2019. They know how many people were confused by this change in events, but really it came out of a love for Marble and a desire to be officially married in that space. On July 22, 2018, Heather, John, and their nuclear family made their way to Marble for the ceremony. Though Heather and John would have loved for all of their family and friends to be there, they realized that there just wouldn't be enough room for everyone. They can't wait to have everyone join them in May to celebrate in a bigger, more comfortable space!
