Tennery, Bleiler wed
Aspen Times Weekly
Wendy Kay Tennery and Scott Patrick Bleiler were married in Basalt on Sept. 20, 2008. Scott was a graduate of Aspen High School.
Jim Jochem (of Snowmass Village), Scott’s stepfather, united the two in marriage at 4:30 in the afternoon at the River Cabin at The Roaring Fork Club. Wendy and Scotty, both avid fly-fisherpeople, stood facing the Roaring Fork as they said their vows. The weather cooperated nearly throughout the ceremony until Wendy was promising love “in good times and in bad” and the heavens let loose. Wendy and Scotty were accompanied back down the aisle by a guest carrying an umbrella. The ceremony quickly moved to the Lodge at the Roaring Fork Club for the reception.
Wendy was attended by four bridesmaids who wore short taupe gowns that blended with the beautiful fall colors. The maid of honor was Farris Sullivan ” the bride’s best friend from college. Gretchen Bleiler, the groom’s sister and an Aspen High School graduate; Katie Bleiler, the groom’s stepsister; and Janis Tennery, the bride’s sister-in-law, all served as bridesmaids. The flower girls, wearing long pistachio-colored dresses, were Wendy’s nieces Anna Herz and Emily Schletewitz.
Scott’s groomsmen included Tigey Eads (of Aspen), who served as best man; Scott’s brother Chad Bleiler, an Aspen High School graduate, and his brother Andy Bleiler, who both served as best bros; and Michael Tennery, the bride’s brother. The ring bearer was Wendy’s nephew, Zackary Schletewitz.
Scotty’s grandmother, Gretchen Gorog (a part-time Aspen resident), and Wendy’s grandmother, Rachael Tennery, were both part of the wedding party. Scott’s godfather, Jon Gorog, was a reader at the ceremony as were Wendy’s nieces, Bailey and Lauren Tennery.
The reception, given by Robin Gorog (of Snowmass Village) and her husband, Jim Jochem, was held at the main lodge of The Roaring Fork Club immediately following the ceremony. Guests arrived from the River Cabin by golf cart and then assembled to welcome the bride and groom. Dinner was held on the outdoor decks facing the sunset and dancing followed in a white tent with a clear top allowing the stars to shine down on the newly married couple.
Scotty and Wendy honeymooned in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, while Robin and Jim baby-sat their granddog, Teddy, in Snowmass Village. The couple resides in Atlanta.
