Danielle & Jonah's Vail Golf Club Wedding
Spring of 2020 was an unusual year in planning or celebrating a long awaited wedding. As couples dreams worldwide, were postponed and familes were physically separated, couples were scurring for alternate dates, planning elopements or simply recovering from the shock their dream wedding was not coming to fruition. My Bride and Groom, Danielle and Jonah, were frustrated and disappointed as one can imagine. Inviations had already been sent out, their custom made Ketubah showing their initial wedding date was specially delivered from Israel and custom design wedding favors and a beautiful canvas as their guest book, were hidden away in a closet.
The couple's heads were spinning with voices from concerned family and guests not wanting to travel to their destination wedding planned in Vail, Colorado. The couple had already, patiently waited for their wedding as they had a long two year engagement while the Groom finished his schooling and moved to Vail to start their life together.
As a child, Danielle and her sister, Leah vacationed with their parents in the mountains, so to start their married life in Vail was a dream come true. Jonah followed his Bride shortly after his graduation and the two started their Rocky Mountain life together.
Their original wedding date was during the Spring, 2020 and after several dates changes and family travel apprehensions, the couple decided to cancel their large celebration and planned an intimate wedding ceremony on the island at the Vail Golf Club. Serenaded by a solo violinist, the Groom was escorted by his parents over a charming bridge, followed by the Bride's sister as Maid of Honor and then the Bride was escorted by her parents to the altar. The setting was perfect, with crystal blue waters reflecting the couples silouettes with incredibile views of the Gore Range in the background. The couple tied the knot and the Bride recalls her favorite moment was seeing her Groom cry at the altar when he saw her.
The Bride reflects on her wedding day and planning and advises future Brides to " let the process take its course rather than stressing about the unforseen during these unprecedented times" . Further advice from our Bride echoes many as she advises future brides to "take in every moment of your wedding day because it goes so fast and you only get one wedding day to be a Bride".
