Enjoy as Mandi shares snippets and a few favorite details ... We were married in March which is notoriously unpredictable for the weather. We were so lucky to have the most gorgeous day of the month- 65 degrees and sunny! We were also so blessed to have so many of our wonderful family and friends there to support us. Since I wasn't sure what the weather would be like, I wanted to make sure my bridesmaids were prepared! They were each given some bright red rain boots- just in case!

Venues Lutheran Church of the Cross and Evergreen Lake House, Evergreen, CO. The Lake House is a beautiful cabin set on a lake in the mountains.
