Sunset Colorado Mountaintop Wedding

“Jessica and Chance were tricked into going on a blind date in March 2012. A mutual friend set them up proclaiming their great qualities to one another and she thought they would make a good partner for the other. The one thing the friend failed to mention to either is that they were red heads, or “gingers” as commonly called. Smart friend she was. Both Jessica and Chance had for many years proclaimed  ” I would never date a redhead! I definitely would never MARRY one!”

Fast forward to August 2014 and they did exactly that. Being a redhead is one of the few things Jessica and Chance share in common, which could have caused planning problems. The Lodge at Sunspot and coordinator, Emily Jackson, made the short engagement period fly by and level of nerves minimal. The mountain venue and the Winter Park Village below it allowed for the guests to enjoy the weekend as a vacation. I was important to the couple the mood was neither too casual nor too formal.

The pair elected not to have a wedding party, but the bride insisted on just one. Her 7 year old niece pranced down the aisle as the flower girl. The groom’s cousin from Alaska officiated in a ceremony that truly spoke to the values of the couple and was written by them. After the nuptials the Scotts partied the night away with the 150 guests who traveled from all over the US. Denver, Dallas, St. Louis and Alaska were heavily represented.

Now the couple looks forward to helping increase the ginger population.”
