Name of the Bride: Kate McDonald
About the Bride:
I grew up in Lake Nebagamon, Wisconsin, which is a small village located approximately 20 miles south of the Duluth/Superior area (almost Canada for those of you from the south). I attended the University of Wisconsin - Madison for undergrad, and Michigan State University College of Law for, you guessed it, law school. I am, therefore, a BIG TEN girl all the way! Given my love for skiing, I moved to Colorado shortly after law school in 2010.
Name of the Groom: Chris Whaley
About the Groom:
As part of an air force family, I spent my younger years living in South Carolina, Guam, and Oklahoma. I, however, claim Covington, Tennessee, which is northeast of Memphis, as my home since I spent a majority of my later childhood there. I graduated from the University of Memphis, after which I attended flight school at American Flyers in Texas. Being from the south, I claim the SEC as my conference and do not let Kate forget it. I also moved to Colorado in 2010.

The couple will honeymoon in Punta Cana at the Excellence El Carmen in the Dominican Republic. At Excellence El Carmen, you’ll find seclusion, not isolation, on a gorgeous golden sand beach of coconut palms where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic. Romance revolves around 23 pools, a world-class spa, lush landscaping and contemporary tropical architecture. Leave your wallet and your worries behind. Here, everything is included.
The ceremony will take place at the Quaking Aspen Amphitheatre, which is located in River Run Village in Keystone, Colorado. Cocktails will be served immediately following the ceremony on the patio and welcome lobby of Warren Station Center for the Arts, which is located directly across from the amphitheater. After which the guests will enter into the ballroom at Warren Station for the reception.
Whoever said you can find whatever you are looking for on the internet wasn't lying. We met through the online dating app Plenty of Fish. It was actually Kate who messaged Chris first, which resulted in several messages being exchanged, followed by the two of us meeting up. The first meeting went so well that Chris was almost late to work as he started at 8:00 p.m. that night. A second date quickly followed, then a third, fourth, fifth, etc. It has now been over two and a half years, and we are excited to officially begin our lives together.
A Special Message:
Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our lives during this amazing journey. We cannot wait to take a much needed vacation and are excited for this to be our first trip as husband and wife. We look forward to seeing you all very soon!
