Ringing in the New Year with a Wedding

We ended a nice long holiday yesterday with the wedding of the daughter of our dear friends up in Estes Park.  It was the first of a long line to come.

The wedding was at the Della Terra Mountain Chateau just below the Fall River entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.  It was a beautiful winter day and just warm enough to conduct the wedding outside in a small amphitheater beneath brilliant blue skies.

Amanda is the oldest of three sisters (the two bridesmaids on the right) and like a daughter to us.  A recent graduate of CU she and her new husband Nick will be living in Missoula, Montana while he finishes up his Masters in Communications at U of M before heading back to Colorado.

Last night we were counting up the prospective marriage progression of “the kids” and we are likely to see anywhere between 10-15 weddings from our immediate circle of friends during the next 10 years.  This will be fun!

At the start of the new year, a new life.  A perfect kickoff to 2011.
