WEDDING: August 1, 2020

The dramatic beauty of Lake Superior provided the inspiration and backdrop for the wedding of nature lovers Krista Humbert and Brandon Fiedler, who met at Colorado State University. Colorado was also the site of the Brandon’s proposal while the two hiked in the Poudre Canyon amid stunning fall foliage. “It was just the two of us— with only the rattlesnake sunning itself along the trail to witness our pure joy and excitement!” Krista chose emerald green, ivory and gold for her color palette, using bright dahlias, ranunculus and hydrangeas and streaming emerald green ribbons. Originally planned as a larger wedding, Krista says they were happy to be able to celebrate safely with only eight guests—parents and siblings—taking part. Each person had a job to do: Krista’s dad officiated, Brandon’s dad performed the tree- planting ceremony, their mothers added soil and their siblings made up the wedding party. Although the day saw clouds and rain, the clouds parted after dinner and a double rainbow magically appeared. At the end of the evening, everyone sat around a campfire, enjoying sparklers and celebratory s’mores. “It was a beautiful reminder,” Krista says, “that in the midst of a global pandemic, hope and love prevail.”
