7-7-7 is auspicious as a date. For Dawn and I, it was our seventeenth wedding anniversary. So, we returned to the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. We visited the church where we were married in 1990 and the Music Room at the Stanley where we had our reception. We ate dinner at 7 p.m. (but did not have room for seven courses).
There were seven weddings at the Stanley that day. One large groom named “Rowdy” had an outdoor wedding at 6 p.m. We sat in the front porch watching the thunderclouds roll over Long’s Peak. A large downpour occurred as the bride made her entrance.
