Congratulations Elizabeth + Dave. LOVED capturing your beautiful details!
“We met at a variety of recovery functions in 2005 after we had both decided to turn our lives into something meaningful. The most significant of which was a picnic at Hurkey Creek. David was handing out beverages at the coolers and I was playing frisbee in the grass. As David tells it, it was then that he fell head over heels for me. It was something about my joy, curves, smile and laughter that wrangled his heart. I was smitten with the twinkles in his eyes, his nervous laugh and beautiful smile. This was the moment that planted the seed for an amazing future of growing old together.”

Neither of us. We stayed friends for 9 years before we figured out what we had.
It’s a joint effort 🙂
Oh, I has to be Elizabeth’s 35th birthday. We sat in hours of traffic driving to Idaho Springs (which is only a 40 minute drive from Denver) to check into a “luxury suite” that I had arranged for us. I had reserved the nicest room in town with a jet jacuzzi tub overlooking the river bank and had arranged for roses, rose petals and apple cider to be put in the room in advance. It was horrible!!! The room was dilapidated, smelled like cigarettes from 1962, the river bank was covered in trash and the jacuzzi was filthy. We immediately gathered the romantic items, checked out of the room and drove to a beautiful hotel in downtown Denver, overlooking the city. The guest services woman was so amused and horrified by our evening that she gave us a huge discount, a room on one of the top floors and a $100 credit to use toward dinner and breakfast in bed. We laughed for days.
We love to spend our extra time Sporting clays shooting. We just need MORE extra time!
Hawaii! David has never been there and we are going to spread his Father’s ashes while we are there!

One one knee in front of Union Station in downtown Denver, with an heirloom ring from his Mom. I could tell something was up because he put on a special sweater and couldn’t stop nervously looking at himself in the mirror. It still makes me giggle thinking about it. We walked downtown from our studio in LOHI, hand in hand the whole way. Not uncommon for us. Our hands fit perfectly together. When we got to the Station he walked me through a variety of shops and restaurants like he was lost. He had lured me there under the pretense of trying a new restaurant. I knew where the place was and I had to bite my tongue in telling him how to get there. The truth is, I was really enjoying the wandering aimlessly and hand holding. We eventually walked back outside, but this time we were in front of Union Station (and now on the correct path to the restaurant…) All of a sudden he spun me around and starting talking nervously as he dropped to his knee. I was so flustered, I am not even really sure what he said at first. All I know is that I said “YES!” and he slid the ring on my hand. I could hear a camera lens clicking away in the background but, didn’t fully realize what it was for. Turns out, David had hired a photographer to capture the moment in secret! She then took us back into Union Station and did a mini photo shoot. It was absolutely perfect!
We do! One four-legged kid named Ambush who is spoiled and cherished.. On July 29th, our son, Chisel, received his wings. We miss him so very much but, we know he is playing in fields of wildflowers as I type this. We have adored them and loved them more than is probably accepted by the general public. Not many dogs get both parents hand cooking all of their meals for them!
