"Celebration of Marriage Vows and the Building of a New Life Together"
Today, was one of those most special days. On this Valentines Day 2011, our son Chad and his lovely bride Gina exchanged wedding vows on a mountaintop at the Loveland ski resort in Colorado. The mountain views were beautiful, the temperatures were in the high 30's and the prenuptial comments by the minister were both thought provoking and meaningful for the occasion. Afterwards, we all enjoyed a an outdoor reception complete with cake, sparkling cider and a dance contest, which Chad and Gina won, but were no doubt the best, given the decibel rating of the cheers. Their special prize was threefold, a honeymoon getaway, special dining and future lift tickets. Best of all, their dance moves were all captured on my video camera.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
