Katie and Chris have a true “boy meets girl” kind of romantic story! They met on Vail Mountain after Katie rode the chairlift with this guy Brad, Chris’ friend and now groomsmen, who invited her to tag along and ride (snowboard lingo) the mountain with him and his friends. She got in line for the next lift and joined their group and noticed Chris right away. By time they were on the next chairlift, Chris had asked for her number. Their smiles captivated each other from the start – and still do years later as they now prepare to become husband and wife.
I absolutely LOVED hanging out with them for the afternoon! They are so sweet, adventurous and up for anything! When they mentioned wanting some photos with their golden retriever, Avanti (named after the chairlift) – I thought, “Yes! They are dog people! We are friends already!” I can’t wait to celebrate with them in August at their beautiful Vail golf course wedding!
Avanti loves Vanilla ice cream (and their vet approves)! Who can resist that face?
