Notes from the bride and groom, Dana & Carlotta: Our story didn't look like it would have a happy ending. We met in college, and fell in love over a mutual appreciation of music. We sent each other songs, and lyrics, and CDs, and for a while that bridged the distance of going to schools 4 hours away from each other. But after a few months things fell apart. A little explosively. And that was that, for years to come. Dana dated another girl, Carlotta had a beautiful baby boy and named him Ian. But then in early 2015, we found each other again, with all of the same traits we'd fallen in love with the first time grown deeper, and all of the faults that had fractured us the first time we'd grown out of. And almost two hundred Spotify playlists shared later we got married at sunrise near Long Lake in Colorado, reading our vows off of postcards, just us, our wonderful photographer Shayla, and a pair of moose foraging in the distance. If you're reading this, know that any and all obstacles can be overcome by two people who love each other and want to make things work. We're living proof.
