Monica and John Say “I Do”

Hailing from two of Colorado’s most beloved political families, Monica, the daughter of former Governor and First Lady Bill and Frances Owens and John, son of former Congressmen and Gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez and his wife, Claudia, seemed like a fit from moment one.
