Marcos and Bethany tied the knot last month at 9,600 feet above sea level, at the Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp on the back side of Pikes Peak. What a beautiful place! I've camped at the Crags, which is just a bit farther up the mountain, but I'd never actually been to the Mennonite Camp. This is a place that's very familiar to anyone who grew up Mennonite in the Colorado Springs area, and Marcos and Beth really wanted to celebrate their marriage there. I get a little altitude sickness when I get above 10,000 feet, so this was just about my limit! It did rain for most of the afternoon so the ceremony got moved indoors at the last minute, but eventually it cleared up enough for us to take some fun portraits outside in all the natural beauty.
Gotta love this bride -- her dress was from J. Crew, and she opted for $9.50 flip flops from Old Navy but went barefoot for most of the day.
Bethany's maid of honor Sharon got a little emotional after the ceremony.
It took a little coaxing to get Bethany to agree to get into the canoe...
