From Chrystal: After the excitement of the proposal began to subside it was replaced with a lot of new questions: What kind of service should we have? Should we go to a state where same-sex marriage is performed? or perhaps to Canada? We decided that perhaps the best way to show our own irreverence for the current status of marriage equality in Colorado was to just act like any other couple. And so we (Becca) created custom save-the-dates and invitation suites with a “civil disobedience” theme and continued on as though we were no different from any other couple. We settled on the AA barn in Grand Lake, Colorado as the perfect rustic, remote, high-altitude venue we’d always searched for. Becca and I met in the mountains, fell in love in the mountains, and finally, married in the mountains. Then we ate and drank and danced and played outside. And the mountains, along with our friends and family members, will remain forever witnesses of our dedication to love, live, help, grow, heal and learn with together for a lifetime. And someday maybe the rest of the Nation will too.
