Q&A with the Bride and Groom, Kayla and Kevin:
How did you meet?
We met through the Bumble app! While on our first date, we discovered we have friends in common and had actually met at an early morning spin class before.
What is your proposal story?
Kevin proposed at home in our living room after cooking dinner together. We were finishing dinner and then I looked over and he was down on one knee!
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding (your vision, color, style, and location choices). I know you had to change your wedding plans due to Covid. Tell us more about that.
We cancelled our wedding due to covid five days before our original wedding date of 3/21/20 and cancelled our re-scheduled summer 2020 wedding date as well. After two failed attempts, we were ready to be married and knew we could celebrate with our family and friends at a later date. We love visiting Avon and thought Colorado would be a special place for us to get married. We decided to elope, just us two, and were married on a Monday evening at the Clinton Gulch Dam Reservoir.
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
Our elopement was easier to plan compared to our original traditional wedding. It was important to research and take our time while selecting our photographer, florist and officiant. Our three vendors were very accommodating, enjoyable to work with and went above and beyond. We were so happy!
What were your favorite parts of the day?
The whole day was relaxed and fun! We started the day with fly fishing by our hotel and lunch in Beaver Creek Village before getting ready. The ceremony was simple and meaningful with two fishermen as our witnesses. We had a blast taking photos after the ceremony and celebrating. We continued the celebration with a romantic dinner at Mirabelle where the other diners were sending champagne and dessert to our table!
Do you have any advice for couples planning their weddings now?
Enjoy the planning process together and start early. Sometimes plan C works out best!
