Wed: Bloomer, Bleiler

Contributed report

Karin Laura Bloomer and Laurence Charles Bleiler III, both graduates of Aspen High School, were married in Aspen on June 7, 2008. The ceremony took place at the Crossroads Church of Aspen; Pastor Dan Bosko united the two in marriage at 4:30 in the afternoon in a very beautiful and simple ceremony. Frank Todaro was the pianist and Catherine Peck Phillips was the violinist.

Karin was attended by six bridesmaids wearing periwinkle long gowns. The maid of honor was Jill Bloomer, who is Karin’s sister and an Aspen graduate. The attending bridesmaids were Gretchen Bleiler, the groom’s sister and an Aspen graduate, Raya Roll, Leah Smith, Lucy Sample and Suzanne Wissert. The flower girl was Linden Chaney.

Chad’s groomsmen included his brothers Scott, an Aspen High School graduate, and Andy Bleiler, who together served as “best men,” David Sanders, brother of the bride, Ari Chaney (Aspen), Brian Sample, and Anthony Tadero, also an Aspen High School graduate. The ring bearer was Evan Clark.

The reception, given by the bride’s mother, Sharon Bloomer, and the bride’s father, Kelly Bloomer (both formerly of Aspen), was held at the Maroon Bell’s Lodge immediately following the ceremony. The lodge was beautifully decorated with hundreds of hydrangea plants that carried out the pale lavender theme.

The bride and groom’s first dance was choreographed by the groom and was such a success that it generated spontaneous scoring (mostly 10s!) by the many friends and relatives who attended the celebration.

Karin and Chad honeymooned in Bora Bora and Moorea while Fenway, their chocolate Lab, vacationed in Aspen. The couple is residing in Denver.
