Beth and Lowell spotted each other in a coffee shop and began chatting. Almost instantly, they clicked and took their impromptu date down the street to a vegan restaurant. A year-and-a-half later, Lowell took Beth back to the same café. He secretly asked the barista to play the couple’s favorite song. When it came on, Lowell proposed to Beth with flowers.
The Bride Beth Kohlmetz, 29, graduate student
The Groom Lowell Coleman, 30, postgraduate student
The Date March 28
They planned their wedding remotely while teaching English in South Korea, booking their vendors solely based on reviews and photos on TheKnot.com. A month after moving back to Colorado, the pair married at Red Rocks, a fitting setting for their earth-themed celebration. So as not to downplay the site’s natural charm, the eco-conscious couple used minimal decorations that were all handmade, local, recycled, reusable or found in nature.
