Hey Hey! June 6th is coming up fast and we’ve finalized all our wedding plans. The details are as follows:
Most of the Wedding Party will be staying at Antlers Hilton, Downtown Colorado Springs [Click here for Map] both Friday June 5th and Saturday Night June 6th. If you would like to stay with us at the Antlers there is currently (as of today April 14th) still a deal on Groupon for $99/night [Click here for Link]. Book now or forever hold your peace. ^_^
The wedding ceremony will be held at the Grand Overlook in Palmer Park at 12:O’Clock Noon. [Click Here for Map] We changed this for the beautiful scenery so the ceremony will be held outside at the Overlook, not at the church. The Ceremony will be officiated by Zechariah Walden.
If you’re going to show up before noon I suggest you meet us at Lazy Land (map below) rather then the Grand Overlook since we have reserved lazy land and will migrate up to the Overlook for the ceremony at noon. If you arrive at noon simply drive up to the Grandview Overlook. The parking is very limited at the Grandview Overlook so if you can comfortably walk a mile or two then please park at Lazy Land where we have reserved and walk to the Grand Overlook with us.
- 12:00 PM – Ceremony
- 1:00 PM – Walk the trails to Lazy Land
The ceremony will be 30 minutes to an hour after which everyone will walk or drive to Lazy Land Area in Palmer Park where the reception will be held until 4:30 PM. [Click here for Map from Grand Overlook to Lazy Land] Appetizers will be served at 1:00 PM. Our caterer is going to be on site barbecuing. Aside from the cupcakes that will be available we’ve asked the caterer to be conscious of the fact a good number of our guests eat a gluten free diet.
- 1:00 PM – Appetizers Served
- 2:00 PM – Eat!
- 3:30 PM – Dance!
- 4:30 PM – Cleanup
- 5:00 PM – Depart
At 4:30 PM we’ll clean up Lazy Land and at 5:00 PM a Party Bus will arrive for all who wish to continue the party. Lazy Land will be shut down at 9:PM so the party bus will pick us up from the main entrance where you will want your car to be when we get dropped off. The Party Bus seats 32 people (all whom must be over 21 years of age due to there being a stocked bar on the bus) and will take all those interested to Garden of the Gods with the Wedding Party for photos, sight seeing and of course drinks. The Party bus will drop us off at 11:PM. We’ve estimated that roughly 50 people will share our wedding day with us so the seats on the Party Bus will be first come first serve. If you don’t wish to ride on the Party Bus you are still invited to come to Garden of the Gods and take photos with us, simply follow the bus!
- 5:00 PM – Pickup at Front Entrance to Palmer Park

I want to thank all of you who are coming to share our wedding day with us! It really means a lot to us! Thank you =)
