Notes from the Bride, Heidi:
As high school sweethearts, our love story began nine years ago in Orlando, Florida. Alex was a lacrosse and football player and I was a cheerleader - doesn't get more cliche than that! The love we shared then and still share today was unbelievably strong and precious; looking back on that now is incredible as we were both so young, 16 and 17. This enduring love is what kept us together even though we spent five years apart, attending different colleges. We would visit each other for sorority and fraternity formals, celebrations and of course holidays as our families both live in the same city. After I graduated, I quickly and happily joined Alex in Los Angeles where we were finally together again.
The choice for a destination wedding in Colorado was the easiest part of the entire planning process. Alex and I both grew up skiing in Colorado with our families and adore the state for its inspiring beauty. With the help of Stacy from Alexan Events, the planning was a fabulous experience and the wedding day was beyond what we ever could have imagined. The natural beauty of the Colorado mountains was the most important highlight for Alex and me; we wanted it to be the focal point for our wedding day. This was executed flawlessly by Stacy and her team, as seen in the picturesque photos. Our favorite moment of the event was the private sleigh ride down the mountain, after our exciting day. We reflected on this milestone in these quiet moments together with the twinkling stars above - truly a perfect ending to our day.
