    The Bride and Groom

    After 15 years of friendship, an outdoorsy couple finds true love -- and a backdrop for their nuptials that's every bit as magical as their romance.

    Jodi and Jon Pritchett, who, after 14 years of friendship and not even a smooch, were hit by Cupid's sneaky little arrow during a ski trip in January 2008. "We were in Whistler with some friends for New Year's Eve, and things were just suddenly completely different between us," recalls Jodi. "We were more affectionate than we'd ever been -- it's hard to explain the moment everything changed." After that life-altering trip, the two friends parted ways for a month -- Jodi to her home in California and Jon to his in Georgia. The next time they saw each other, at an annual ski trip with Jodi's family, everything had changed. They confessed their newfound feelings of love, and in June 2008 they were engaged. They chose Utah's Sundance Resort because it was small and intimate, perfect for a winter wedding and to show off their love of skiing.

    Here, Jodi and Jon ride the lift to the top of the mountain at Utah's Sundance Resort for a fun photo op on the slopes.
