Lee and Laurie Riley are pleased to announce the marriage of their daughter, Heather Louise, to John Park Lovell, son of George and Liz Lovell of Columbia, Tenn. With family and friends from all over the world, Heather and John joined their lives together at the Riley’s home in Pagosa Springs on Father’s Day, June 21, 2009. The ceremony was performed by John’s father on a hilltop looking out toward the mountains. Heather and John made their day unique by writing their own vows, having a sundae buffet rather than cake, and tossing wildflower seed confetti. They then entertained their guests with an acrobatic swing performance as the first dance leading to a night full of celebration.
The couple currently resides with their puppy in San Diego, Calif., where they met in 2005. Heather is a teacher at High Tech Middle School and John is in Naval Special Forces training. They will be going to Italy on their honeymoon in December after his training is completed.
