Construction on I-25

There is construction on I-25 south of Denver near Lone Tree (new Cabella's).  The fast lane is closed.  The traffic normally flows pretty well, but it is slower than normal (and the posted speed limit of 55 mph).

Construction is both ways!  Enjoy and be patient.  If you get delayed, hopefully you planned extra time, if not don't worry.  We will still get married without you ;)

Chairs and Umbrellas

In less than three days we will be married!  There are a couple things I'd like to mention and remind you guys about regarding the wedding.

It's in a park!  I highly recommend bringing a chair if you don't want to sit on the grass (blankets also work).  You may want to bring an umbrella this can help protect from both sun and rain.  Both are possible on Sunday.

Lawn Chairs!

We are excited that our wedding is in 17 days!  We are still planning an outdoor wedding at Festival Park.  Lord willing, the weather will be nice.  We will have some folding chairs to sit on; however, it would be great if you brought your own lawn chairs.  To put it another way, if you want to guarantee that you’re not sitting on the grass or standing – bring your own chair.  Thank you for helping us provide seating for all our guests, especially the out-of-town guests.

Thanks for Responding

Thank you all for praying for our wedding and marriage. We really appreciate the responses we have had already, even if you are unable to attend. :o(
I (Allison) am excitedly awaiting David's arrival in Castle Rock on June 28th! He is finishing his responsibilities at Victory Ranch in South Carolina this week and will be making the lengthy drive across the country to Colorado starting on June 24th.  His trip will take him on a slight detour to see family in Knoxville, TN.
I would appreciate your prayers for David's safe arrival. I'm only slightly anxious to see my fiance! We have not been in the same state since his proposal visit in February. There is only so much connecting you can do through phone calls. :o)
We will be continuing to reside in the Denver area after our wedding. David has accepted a position at the Cadence International Headquarters in Englewood, Colorado. His position as an IT consultant begins on July 1st. We hope to find housing somewhere within the nearby areas of Denver.
Again, thank you ALL for your support! We are deeply grateful for the relationships with which God has blessed us.

El Meson - 794 South Perry Street Castle Rock, CO 80104

Daz Bog Coffee is conveniently located across the street from Festival Park.  Fun Fact – our predate date happened at this coffee shop.  Neither of us had coffee that morning, we enjoyed other drinks from Daz Bog. 


We are recommending La Quinta.  This hotel location receives good reviews and is a good economical choice for Castle Rock. It is very close to the wedding venue at Festival Park.
