Celine and David wed outdoors beneath a huppah that the groom and his parents had assembled with poles borrowed from close friends who had handmade and used them at their own wedding. The huppah top was covered with two prayer shawls -- one belonging to David's maternal grandmother and one that Celine gave to David as a wedding gift.

"I had a real problem when it came to dress shopping in that I did not have very much time. I knew I wanted a halter style, so that made my selection much smaller," Celine remembers. She finally found a dress off the rack in off-white silk that -- after many alterations -- fit perfectly.

Celine & David in Boulder, CO

"First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" was Celine Marko and David Alper's first dance song -- a fitting choice since the first time they ever laid eyes on each other, they didn't actually have a chance to speak. A couple of weeks later, the two were introduced at a party but didn't say more than hello. Nevertheless, it was enough for David to ask a mutual friend for Celine’s phone number. The two met up for tea, and a year later, David proposed with a ring he’d designed using heirloom stones. The Bride Celine Marko, 38 and a personal assistant The Groom David Alper, 38 and a general manager The Date November 6 The couple planned a Boulder wedding in just seven months, alerting guests right away with save-the-dates that featured David, an avid cyclist, peddling a bicycle with Celine sitting in the front basket. Bicycles also showed up in other wedding details, including a bike on top of the cake! The late fall season -- Celine's favorite -- also served as inspiration, with rich autumnal hues of brown, rust, plum, cream, and gold tying everything together.
