“He had festivities all lined up,” remembers Whitney.
“From the day after we got engaged, I went into full wedding mode—as one does—and he started making a funny Chewbacca ‘bridezilla’ noise every time I mentioned the wedding.
“She was instrumental—she helped me kick off the direction of not just the looks I would wear but the wedding itself, all the way up to the end.“Michael admitted he didn’t know how to ski, and being from Utah and having grown up skiing, I was perplexed as to why someone who couldn’t ski would be on a ski vacation.” He quickly suggested she teach him how.“I was up for the challenge and excited to slyly show off my skills,” Whitney says. I spent every minute of that long ride boasting about my expertise.He said that he was nervous and suggested that I go slow so he could keep up.When we got off, he picked up my skis and got me clicked in.I thought, Hmm, that’s weird, that’s kind of a pro move, but then quickly started down the hill.
