We were introduced on March 13, 2010 by our mutual friend Brittney at the Cherry Cricket while celebrating St. Patrick's Day. John spent most of the time attempting to convince me that he was a "simple" guy :) We both had travel plans taking us out of town for the next two weeks so our first date was officially March 28, 2010. We were both hooked from that day forward. We got engaged on July 2, 2010 when John took me to Red Rocks for a "walk" where he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I, of course, said "yes!" We celebrated our engagement by going to Napa and enjoying one of our favorite things in common - wine. John also surprised me with an early morning hot air balloon flight over the beautiful Napa Valley. It was one of those moments in life that we will never forget!
We will be getting married on June 18, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. at Della Terra Chateau in Estes Park, Colorado. The wedding ceremony will be officiated by Marcy's long-time mentor and close friend Larry Treece. The ceremony will be outside with all of the wonders of nature, including the majestic Rocky Mountains, a couple of babbling brooks and maybe an elk or two if we are lucky.
