Kit & Charlie in Sedalia, CO
Kit VanderPloeg met Charlie Berger (26 and an assistant brewer) at a college fraternity party her junior year. She assumed he was a senior, but quickly learned he was a first-year student. "His charm and sense of humor made up for his freshman status," says Kit.
The Bride Kit VanderPloeg, 27, medical resident
The Groom Charlie Berger, 26, assistant brewer
The Date May 24
The two began dating at Colgate University, and later moved to St. Louis, where Kit was accepted into medical school. One night, Charlie decided Kit needed a night away from the books. He took her to a small town in Missouri's wine country (coincidentally called Berger), got down on one knee and asked Kit to become a Berger. After graduation, the couple moved to Charlie's home state of Colorado to start their new life together
