Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.
It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you’re all wound up and can’t move.
An excerpt from How Love is like Owning a Dog, read by Rachel’s grandmother during the ceremony, by Taylor Mali
Rachel & Kris were married in an outdoor ceremony on the green at the Nantucket Golf Club. When I met the couple last year, I just knew I’d want to be a part of their tribe. They are dog lovers, they live in Colorado, they snowboard, they hike fourteeners, they mountain bike, and they’re not afraid to get wet and dirty – they are my kind of people.
Their laid back style, their genuine smiles, and their obvious love and happiness for being together draws you in. You can’t help but smile when they smile. As Rachel’s brother Cliff puts it “Rachel has stars in her eyes.” Rachel and Kris met in Boulder 4 years ago, and after a series of ‘non-dates’ as they called them, they fell in love and chose Nantucket as the best place to get married. Rachel grew up summering here on island, staying at her family’s home in ‘Sconset and working at the Market. It was that home where Kris and Rachel had their first look on their wedding day, starting the rest of their lives together as husband and wife.
