It’s taken be a while to write this, and a part of me is glad that I’ve waited this long because I’ve had time to let the experience sink in. I find myself going back to that weekend almost daily and the entire weekend was better than both Callie and I could have imagined.
We decided last year that we wanted the wedding to be in North Idaho, so naturally we took a trip up there early this year to check out some venues and decide which was going to work best for us. We looked at about 5 different spots and had some pretty good ideas about which we were going to choose, so we decided to use our last day in town as a ski day. We went up to Schweitzer, which was a killer day of skiing, but we also met with the wedding coordinator, toured the resort and what they had to offer. In the end Callie made the executive decision that we were going to have the wedding at Schweitzer Mountain Resort on August 28, 2016.
I deserve almost zero credit for helping plan the wedding. It was pretty much all Callie, and for that I’m forever grateful to her. The wedding turned out so good, I’m also grateful that she did most of the planning..
Some of the most important people in our lives were able to attend the entire weekend and it was a blast. We both feel incredibly blessed, and I couldn’t be more happy to be spending the rest of my days with Callie. Very big thanks are in order to our bridal party, parents on both side for all the amazing support, and especially my father, Scott Barkdull, for officiating the wedding and providing wonderful guidance through the entire weekend.
