I went as fast as I could and thought he was long behind me. When we got to the bottom, he clicked off my skis, handed them over, and said, ‘Y’all have a good day! ”After leaving Colorado, the two spent hours on the phone, but didn’t see each other again until the end of January.
They started dating officially on Valentine’s Day, and a proposal came in June two years later.“In typical Michael fashion, I had no idea it was coming,” Whitney admits.
“He said he was going to take a quick shower, but insisted I didn’t need to.
It was just before Christmas in 2013, and the two were on vacation in Aspen with their respective families when a mutual friend introduced them one afternoon.She suggested that the amazing Diana Sorensen of Sugokuii Events do the actual wedding, which was crucial.It’s important to have an event designer and planning team who speak the language and know all of the vendors and processes like the back of their hand.”After the couple confirmed their event designer, Whitney and Michael did what many might call crazy and proceeded to plan an entire wedding at a venue neither of them had ever been to before.The next day, that same friend and Whitney came barreling down the slopes only to find Michael having a long, leisurely lunch on what was a very optimal ski day.“I sat down next to him and was giving him a hard time about wasting such amazing conditions,” remembers Whitney.
