During the reception, I tapped Derek’s shoulder and said to him, “You might be one of the most genuinely nice people I’ve ever met.” I meant it too. The thing about nice people, is they are attracted to similarly nice people, which is he married Aaren. Both of them are the type of people who offer to help, even when they’re the ones getting married.
They were married at Lionsgate Event Center in Lafayette, which is on one of Colorado’s more authentic wedding venues. Chickens graze the premise all throughout the day, but are far enough from the ceremony site. They helped separate the venue from the city and give you a sense of country almost. Weird that I would write about that, but it was different, and Stacy and I liked that.
