Anne and Eric's wedding was really important to me because Eric has been one of my best friends over the last few years. We started our journalism careers together in the same newsroom at a small paper in New Mexico in 2001. He was a sports reporter and I was a photographer. So, fast forward nearly 10 years and I get to witness Eric marrying Anne, overlooking the Rocky Mountains.  And as luck would have it, the very next weekend, I had a wedding in Hawaii on the same island Anne and Eric were spending their honeymoon.
