I hope you are ready, because you are about to learn the conclusion to one of the internets most highly anticipated cliff hangers.
WHAT did I decide to wear to our Friday Night western-themed Welcome Party.
But first, if you can even stand it…The set up.
One of our favorite parts about our wedding was that we were going to get to introduce all of our amazing friends from Chicago and Texas and our other various life detours to each other, and we wanted to give everyone as many opportunities to get to know each other, fall in love, and promise us God-Parentalship to their future children. So Friday night that meant a Welcome Party on top of Aspen Mountain for all of our guests.
At 5:00 everyone met at the base of the Gondola to ride up to the top of the mountain.
Our absolutely unreal wedding planner, Lisa Vorce, turned the lodge on top of the mountain into well…this:
When you walked in to the lodge, there was a wall of cowboy hats with table numbers painted on them and name tags attached…
Lisa also had my friends give her some favorite quotes/sayings for “taxidermied” deer heads that were hung throughout.
And the dress I chose for this blessed event was…I went with brown fringe…Because…I mean how couldn’t I.
Everyone else looked FANTASTIC.
The tables were covered in burlap with raw cotton bouquets and other cool junk as well…
After everyone was sufficiently stuffed, the Spazmatics (The most incredible 80s cover band ever, look them up, they probably play in your area) took the stage…I don’t know if it was the alcohol, or the altitude…or the sheer power of Pete’s and my love…But the dancing was out.of.control.
And these were just the internets appropriate choices.
For the gondola ride down there was a basket of cow socks for people to take to rest their toesies up for Saturday… Which our friends, of course, made good use of.And that’s all I have to say about that.
