So, as for that wedding...it was great! Seriously, it was just as we planned it, from the very casual pizza/beer dinner we had the night before, to the wedding itself, to the next-day brunch. I love Crested Butte, Colorado, I felt so grateful to be surrounded by my family members, and most of all I'm glad that David and I had a lovely weekend to celebrate our marriage.
I'll give you all a bit more detail later when I've compiled a few more photos, but for now here is a brief photographic summary of the wedding day and ceremony.
First things first: a great mountain bike ride on the 401 trail just outside of Gothic, Colorado:

After our bike ride, David and I finished writing our vows (a smidge late, huh?) and I hustled to the hair salon, where I had a nice though rather bumbling older lady give me a fancy hairdo. By fancy I mean that she braided a bit of my hair and pulled it back so my hair was half up and half down. Apparently it was puh-retty!
Then I headed to my parents' hotel room, put my dress on, put some makeup on, and started getting nervous...
|I don't at all remember this picture or pose--still shaking my head on what prompted me to look this sassy.|
|That random guy oogling us is actually the person who married us.|
And just for good measure, this is the picture that Sarah posted on Facebook with the caption, "What a sweet ass--with Nikki at Lil's Sushi Bar and Grill":
