Congratulations, Emily & Eric!

Emily Catherine Kerr and Eric Samuel Lund were united in matrimony on August 8th in Vail, Colorado. The bride is the daughter of Cathy and Matt Kerr of Leawood, Kansas. Emily is the granddaughter of Eugenia Cartmell Hovey and Robert Hovey of Mission Hills, Kansas, and the late Philip Martin Cartmell, Jr., and James Kerr of Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the late Judith Kerr. Her groom is the son of Candy and Phil Lund of Elmhurst, Illinois.

On the evening prior, the groom’s parents hosted a rehearsal dinner for their son and future daughter-in-law at Bighorn Park in Vail. The ceremony was held by Gore Creek on the lawn of the home of Emily’s aunt and uncle, Shelley and Tom Cartmell. Phil Lund, father of the groom, served as the officiant. Emily Frye was the maid of honor, and Peter Kuchan served as best man. Maci Lund, niece of the groom, was the flower girl. The bride’s parents toasted their daughter and new son-in-law at a reception at Manor Vail. Following a honeymoon in Aspen, Colorado, the newlyweds are at home in Denver. Emily is careering with Wedfuly, and Eric is employed with the Denver Public School System.
