Wedding Date: 04/07/2017
Bride and Groom: Lindsay Altenbaumer and Raul Ganzalez
Where did you have your ceremony? St. Mary of the Crown – Carbondale, CO
How did you meet? Raul and I met while I was in law school at the Chipotle cantina and we dated for five years before we tied the knot in Colorado.
How did you decide on this location? We wanted a small Catholic church with beautiful scenery. St. Mary of the Crown was an easy selection, as it provided the small church feel with gorgeous views of Mount Sopris. Also, Father Rick is fluent in Spanish and was able to communicate important portions of the mass to Raul’s family.
Where did you have your reception? The Little Nell – Aspen Mountain Club
How did you decide on The Little Nell – Aspen Mountain Club for your reception? Coming from Texas, we were looking for a venue/location that did not involve as much humidity & heat, and the top of Aspen Mountain was an easy selection for that preference. Plus, The Little Nell accommodated every food request to perfection!
How would you describe your wedding? Intimate with beautiful scenery!
What is your best memory from your wedding day? Having everyone we love joined together in such a great location and, of course, marrying my love.
Lindsay, Do you have any advice for a bride planning a destination wedding? Having everyone we love joined together in such a great location and, of course, marrying my love. Enjoy the benefits of a destination wedding, visit, visit, visit!! It is an excuse to vacation while you plan!
