Alexa and Peter’s Sprague Lake wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park was a perfect combination of private and intimate, while still including their close family.

Alexa and Peter met on Christmas day. Alexa was on-call with her job so her friend invited her to go to dinner. Peter’s Christmas plans had fallen through with his family, so that same friend also invited him (knowing she wanted Alexa and Peter to meet for some time).

They hit it off and found fun, quirky similarities between the two of them…

  • A love for Dr. Pepper
  • They both drive Ford Escapes
  • Have much older siblings
  • Are Lord of the Ring fans

Together these two love kicking butt at trivia nights, going out to movies, watching football and their favorite T.V. show, Impractical Jokers, going on walks, traveling, and playing with their cat Mosby.

They said “I do” with their close family and friends at a Sprague Lake wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park. We even were graced with a mamma and baby moose swimming in the water after their ceremony! Afterward, we headed to a nearby restaurant, The Dunraven Inn, and had a mini-reception before heading up to Trail Ridge Road in RMNP for sunset photos.
