Hi Girls! We just returned from our fabulous trip to Cancun where we were married June 12 at the Moon Palace Resort. I didnâ€™t have time to put this together before the wedding, but here it is now!
Before I begin, Iâ€™d like to say how much I appreciate all of you ladies for posting all your fantastic ideas, templates, and pics. Most of what we used for the wedding came from all of you, so THANK YOU!
So without further ado, here you go!
How We Met:
We were matched on eHarmony on April 1, 2008. You could say, we "clicked" right away. After moving through the introductory steps online, we met in person for the first time on May 3 at the Med in Boulder. There was a wait to get a table, so we took a stroll along Pearl street, where a woman begging for change turned out to be a prophet. She told us within the first five minutes of our meeting that we were a cute "couple."
All throughout dinner, I wasn't sure if Erich was having a good time, as he was extremely quiet. Those in the know realize this is normal. It wasn't until Erich reached for the check at the end of the meal and suggested that they get drinks at the Rio that I realized he might be interested after all.
Drinks at the Rio moved to air hockey at the Catacombs, to drinks again at Trilogy. The date only ended when everything in Boulder was closed. Our first date lasted over 7 hours, and the rest, is history!
As a dating anniversary gift to me, Erich scheduled a wine train trip to Grand Junction over the last weekend in July. We took the train from Denver to Grand Junction on Friday and spent the day Saturday wine tasting.
Unbeknownst to me, Erich had made reservations before we left at a very nice restaurant (called The Winery) in downtown Grand Junction for Saturday night (highly suspect) and brought along his big, nice camera (also unusual). We had a wonderful dinner, during which he looked rather nervous, and although I had my toes secretly crossed all through dinner and dessert, nothing happened.
He then suggested we go for a walk after dinner, but alas, it was pouring rain, so we ran to the car. When we got back to the hotel, after I had decided that I was misreading him, he proposed! Howâ€™s that for an anniversary gift?
Save the Dates
Our Save the Dates were sent out pretty quickly. We actually decided to go digital with these, as invitations were coming soon after. I made a photo slide show using Animoto.com. It came out awesome!

It took me forever to decide on a dress. Ladies, I highly recommend you start any weight loss you plan to do long before you go dress shopping!!!
In the end though, I LOVED my dress.
