Ellen and Pat finally sealed the deal, after a very long courtship, with a Cheley camp wedding ceremony in Estes park, CO.

Here among the mountains these cuties continued their love story with friends, family, and a multitude of hugs.

Ellen and Pat are one of those love stories that start off when they were young, fell in love, and had to go their separate ways before they found each other again. Fifteen is the perfect age to fall in love, however, as life goes, Pat moved across the country and although love letters were sent, the two parted ways and had to go on separate journeys before returning to one another in Colorado.

Childhood friends, and family gathered excitedly to tell the same story about how these two were destined to end up together and how they were so thrilled to partake in such love and romance on this inevitable wedding day.

Tucked away in Estes park, Co the two gathered and decided to go traditional and have their first look be down isle. The look on Pat’s face was what every guest at a wedding hopes for. He not only burst into happy tears, but gave a first pump as one does when they win big.

With cheers and tears, these two finally tied the knot and were surrounded by pure congratulations by all.

In between the rain and excitement we snuck off for a quick jaunt to grab a few snaps of the happily married couple among the magnificent landscape before running off to the best part of the night, dancing!

Throughout speeches, dances, cake cutting and socializing, you barely saw these two leave one another’s side. They literally could not get enough of each other and the overwhelming realization that after the long wait, they finally goto to call each other husband and wife! Cheers to these two soulmates!
