The wedding ceremony was held outdoors at Sylvan Lake in Custer State Park, SD at 4:30 in the afternoon on June 11, 2011. An indoor reception immediately followed.
Shortly after Joe and I got engaged, we began the conversation about where we wanted to get married. Of course, we knew it would be in my home state of South Dakota, but we wanted a location that fit us as a couple. Joe and I love to be outdoors together, whether we’re adventuring or just enjoying each other’s company. Sylvan Lake is truly the prime location for us, as we have spent many days climbing and hiking around this beautiful area. There is a small path that goes around the lake and it is by far one of my favorite short hikes in the entire country. I hope that you get a chance to take it between our ceremony and reception.
Immediately following the ceremony, we invite you to take a walk around the lake to stretch your legs, enjoy the breath-taking views, and get ready for a night of dancing!
