Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Eric Lippincott. (May Selby)

Sarah Lukens Gercke and Eric Bartram Lippincott were married Sunday morning at the Aspen Meadows.

The lovely outdoor ceremony began at quarter past 10 under a blue sky with summer climes. The stylish couple, who own The Gal­lerie boutique in Aspen, charac­teristically chose chic attire for their wedding party. The groom and groomsmen wore seersucker suits and collared shirts, while the bridesmaids wore custom­designed Hunter Dixon sleeveless dresses with pockets. The bride was a vision in ivory and carried a bouquet of hydrangeas. All wore flip-flops.

As the wedding party made its way down the aisle, Bobby Yang and his Unrivaled Players performed acoustic songs. Following a sweet ceremony, all enjoyed champagne on the lawn, then strolled across the property to the Doerr-Hosier Center for a lunch reception. Welcoming all, the father of the bride gave three toasts: first to the friends, then to the family and lastly to the new­lyweds. “Sarah and Eric truly bring out the best in each oth­er,” said sister of the groom Jen Snyder. The Lippincotts’ first dance was to a Bob Marley love song, followed by the cutting of the cake, a three-tiered, traditional sponge cake with praline butter cream frosting.

At four o’clock, the festivities moved over to the main building at the Meadows and lasted till dusk. “The best part of the wedding was we got to spend the entire day with Sarah and Eric,” said several guests at night’s end.

The happy couple currently is honeymooning in California.
