Why did you choose the Mountains for your wedding?
I grew up in Colorado and have always loved the mountains and the outdoors. After returning to Colorado after attending college in Arizona, I fell in love with the mountains even more and realized how much I had taken them for granted. They are the most beautiful backdrop.
