Dave and Dena met online and quickly became best friends. Dave chose the blessed holiday season to propose by putting a ring in Dena’s stocking and proposing Christmas Eve! She said YES!
Dave and Dena chose Pine Peaks Event Center to celebrate their wedding weekend. They loved that Pine Peaks included all the linens, draped tables and decorations. When they arrived Thursday, they “shopped” upstairs in the Pine Peak’s decoration room and came up with their own combination for the tables. It looked fabulous!
The groom’s dinner was held Friday night in Pine Peaks Fireside Room with a roaring fire in the background. An intimate dinner and celebration was shared with family and friends. The Retreat House was occupied all weekend by family and friends that now share forever memories.
Dave and Dena were married in Pequot Lakes, MN at Grace United Methodist Church. The father of the bride walked the “barefoot” Dena down the aisle and then went to the altar to perform the ceremony! Dena’s brother is also a minister and officiated the beginning of the service. Family and friends were honored to witness the vows.
The reception followed at Pine Peaks Event Center. The guests were greeted with a roaring fire on the crisp February day. A fabulous dinner was served and they all danced the night away. Continuing in the Pine Peaks tradition, Maucieri’s made fresh pizzas in the Italian wood oven early in the evening. The guests enjoyed the celebration of Dena and Dave’s love well into the night.
The couple honeymooned in Florida and especially enjoyed Disney World! We at Pine Peaks wish Dave and Dena a lifetime of happiness! We thank them for choosing us and sharing their special weekend with us.
