Ashley Sunderland (29 and a business developer) and Brett Foy (29 and a consultant) met at The Ginn Mill. On Christmas day, four years later, they were opening gifts with their families when Brett proposed through a series of gifts. The first gift said, "A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys and keys to fit our locks." The second was an art deco print that said, "To my heart, you hold the key." Ashley used the key that was in the first gift to open a lock that was securing a wooden box. Inside was the ring box. "It was wonderful to have both families present for such a special time in our lives," Ashley says. "Brett then dropped on one knee and professed his love and his ideas for our future." For their wedding festivities, they chose Beaver Creek Lodge because they love to ski, adored the natural beauty of the venue and appreciated the event coordinator, Lori. “I would highly recommend anyone considering a mountain wedding to visit Lori and Beaver Creek Lodge,” Ashley says. The couple exchanged vows on the ski bridge, which was decorated with white and pink paper lanterns for a fun, whimsical feel. Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne to enjoy during the ceremony and Ashley’s longtime friend, Ed Culver, officiated the wedding. “He knows us well (maybe too well) and with his southern charm the ceremony was absolutely perfect,” Ashley says. “Big Ed incorporated personal notes into the ceremony while also incorporating traditional aspects of a marriage ceremony. He means so much to us, and it was something we will never forget.” Afterwards, they had dinner and dancing inside the art gallery room. They decorated with shades of pink and gray and kept the details clean and simple to try and not overshadow the venue. At the end of the night, guests went home with “S’more Love” s’more kits for extra sweet favors.

Ashley ordered a monogrammed burlap aisle runner from Etsy and lined the aisle with galvanized tins full of baby’s breath.
“The Knot Wedding Store had a big sale on lanterns, so we ordered light pink and white lanterns to string and hang above the rows where the guests sat on the ski bridge for the ceremony,” Ashley says.
For their unity ceremony, the couple did a wine box tradition. They put a bottle of wine and unopened love letters to each other into the wooden box and nailed each end shut. They will get to decide if they want to open it in one, five or 10 years.
