Location Scouting and "The Ask"
When we went to Bridgeport for the 4th of July, in addition to enjoying the holiday festivities, we made time to drive up into the mountains to scout a location for our wedding in October. We knew the general area we wanted -- somewhere above Summers Meadows -- but needed to look through our "we're going to get married here" lenses to see what we think will look and feel best.
...and I told them Bob wanted to ask them something...
The discussion quickly turned to attire for the wedding. Emma had asked me much earlier (or perhaps it was Abbey) if I was going to wear high heels, and I said that, given the terrain, I'm going to wear cowboy boots under my dress. This was the girls' reaction when I said they could, too, if they want.
And Alyssa was really glad we stopped this last time, as Brian found an animal skull that he generously gave to her. Now that's a treasure any 10-year-old mountain-girl-at-heart would love!
