Our Story

Our Story

Brie x Bennett. Colorado Mountain Engagement Session by Alp _ Isle. -8.jpg

Brie and Bennett met in the late summer of 2019 in Dallas, Texas. Brie had moved to Dallas, after college, to embrace the next chapter of life with her Ole Miss friends. Bennett was a recent graduate from SMU, after completing his Masters. The two were set up through a mutual friend (fellow groomsman, Blake!) and the rest is history. 

Two weeks later, I love you's were shared and the two made plans to relocate to Denver, CO. When you know, you know.

Over the years, they have fallen even more in love, day by day, and embraced their new chapter in Bennett's home state. In December 2022, Bennett proposed in Newport Beach, CA. The celebrations were endless and hosted by family and friends all across the country. 

Brie & Bennett spend their time enjoying the mountains, traveling, golfing, skiing, trying new restaurants, playing card games with friends, chasing around their golden retriever, and cooking new recipes (she always cooks and he always cleans).

TRAVEL

Getting There

Vail, Colorado is a 2-hour drive from Denver International Airport. There are several ways to get to Vail but our recommendations is to rent a car and take the gorgeous, scenic drive up Interstate 70 to the town of Vail (we're happy to recommend some of our favorite stops along the way - just ask us)! There are also shuttle services (our recommendation is Epic Mountain Express) that will give you 10% for being our wedding guest and take you from DEN to Vail (and back!)

The Eagle-Vail Airport is approximately 45 minutes from Vail Village and is a smaller regional airport. Rent a car, take an airport shuttle, or Ride Taxi (Uber for the mountains) into town if long drives aren't your thing! 



**Travel Tip: Please keep in mind if you are driving back to the Denver airport on Sunday, traffic will be heavy in the afternoon from the weekend visitors heading down the mountain. Please allow enough time.

WHERE TO STAY

The Hythe Hotels luxurious alpine haven invites you to indulge in a rarified collection of the mountain’s most exquisite gifts. Set amid the majestic Rocky Mountains, The Hythe is where old and new legends come to life.
