Kristy tells us,

“Holly & Bill were married at a quaint bed and breakfast in the Rocky Mountains of Pine Colorado. Second weddings for both, their wedding heavily focused on the union of two families and let the beautiful surroundings speak for themselves. When I arrived the water had been turned off and wouldn’t be back on for a couple of hours, throwing off the schedule to get everyone staying at the B&B through the shower.
Not the least bit phased, everyone sat back, relaxed and enjoyed the additional time together. Holly did her own hair and makeup. Her jewelry belonged to her mother, who had passed away before she could see her daughter marry the love of her life, but Holly’s sisters, Bill’s beautiful daughters and both of their families came from near and far to witness their union.”
