A McMac wedding
Aspen, CO Colorado
Heather Jeanette McKee and Chris Hoyt Macdonald of Aspen tied the knot last Saturday at Newbury Park. The happy couple exchanged vows on the sunny summer afternoon in the presence of friends and family members.
Afterward, Heather’s father presented a champagne toast in their honor. As a horse drawn carriage arrived to whisk the newlyweds to their reception at The Gant, the skies turned gray and it began to rain. By the time the carriage pulled away, it was a torrential downpour prompting guests to disperse in every direction. All regrouped at The Gant as a rainbow arced over town.
An Aspen native who chose to stay and make his life here as an adult, Chris was thrilled to reunite with friends from childhood who returned to town for the special occasion ” some of whom could not remember their way around the area. Fortunately, all eventually found their way to the ceremony and the reception, celebrating Heather and Chris’ big day alongside them.
Friends traveled from Phoenix, Durango, Denver and even Alaska to take part in the festivities. “I wouldn’t miss Chris’ wedding for anything,” said Eran Hood who made the trek from Juno, Alaska, for the special occasion. Eran gave a memorable toast to Chris at the reception, explaining the origins of his nickname, “the Heat” from his days as a tennis pro and reminiscing about other funny moments in time. Heather’s grandfather gave a thoughtful tribute to the bride as well, wishing the Macdonalds the best in their new life together.
