Before or After the Wedding Weekend

      You are welcome to turn the trek to our wedding into a vacation! The mountains of Colorado
       are a great place to be in the summer. Several people are planning to arrive early or stay
       later. Personally, our plan is to arrive around Wednesday, July 16, and leave on
       Wednesday, July 23 (these plans are tentative, due to our undetermined honeymoon plans
       and undetermined employment start dates).
