In late September, Nick and Venessa had a perfect fall wedding. The autumn leaves were turning, the sun was out all day, the mountain views were breathtaking as always, and love was everywhere.
No matter how long I live in Colorado, I know that the sight of changing Aspen leaves, shadowed by 12,000 foot peaks, will never cease to wow me. The love between two people and their families never ceases to wow me either.
Nick and Venessa have it all. They have large, loving families, a beautiful hometown to have an amazing wedding in and, of course, true love. Any Colorado resident is lucky to call this beautiful state home. And for these newlyweds, camping and being in the great outdoors inspired the two to get married at the base of La Plata Canyon. The day Nick proposed, it was in that very canyon.
But no matter how beautiful the scenery or how gorgeous the bride was (and she sure was!) , the most beautiful part was the feelings that were part of the day; the feeling of love falling down all around as if falling with the Aspen leaves in the breeze. Because, as Helen Keller once said, "The best and most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."
May you both have all the best things in life come your way and may you always feel the love, no matter how near or far you are from one another. Hopefully not too far.
