Jordan & Heather’s Outdoor Wedding at Harpor’s Vineyard

“Our families have known one another for generations as our grandmothers both grew up in Kit Carson, Colorado. All of Brady’s uncles stayed in the area once they had kids and so my brothers played sports with his cousins and I coached his cousin Haley in softball. Brady, however, grew up in Wray, so although I knew of him, I had never met him in person. In the spring of 2017 I had just graduated law school and I got a message from him telling me congratulations and making small talk. I was immediately intrigued. He apparently had been working up his courage because that same day he asked to take me to dinner. I remember just smiling so big as I was packing up my room to head back to Eads for the summer to study for the bar exam. A week later we went on our first day and have been inseparable since! Brady’s Mom, Jody, will say it was her doing as she kept reminding him of me anytime my mom posted about me on FB. and she saw it. 🙂 “
