When planning your Rocky Mountain wedding in Summit County, Colorado you can incorporate a water experience into your options with a rafting trip, fly fishing experience or even a pontoon parade. Yes, that's exactly what we did for our friends and family. We had our ceremony near the Frisco Bay Marina, and decided against the family kayaking chaos we envisioned and went with the pontoon parade idea.
Just after the ceremony, we boarded reserved pontoons (a must) and headed out towards the center of the lake through the islands. We still remember my cousin, Glen, wearing his bluetooth opening up the throttle on the pontoon trying to pass us. Our pontoon putt putt quickly turned into a scene from Miami Vice as I wondered who was so important that might call that warranted sporting a bluetooth earpiece.
Looking back, I'm glad we were able to share the experience of being on the water in the mountains with our friends and family. We did get a big wave from a passing Sheriff's boat put enough water in the front of our pontoon that we thought we might be swimming for a second! We drained our shoes and wore flip flops the rest of the night!
