U.S. Snowboarding’s Gretchen Bleiler is busy planning her summer 2009 wedding to fellow snowboarder Chris Hotell.
In an interview with ussnowboarding.com she says, “I am very excited. Chris and I have been dating for about five years, and we are going to get married next summer in Costa Rica. We actually just got back from a trip with our moms in Costa Rica trying to work out a lot of the wedding details.”
Although the couple have decided on a destination wedding and set a date, Gretchen says organizing all the details is a little bit tougher. “We’ve got everything decided on and now is the hard part where we have to make a guest list, build a website, send save the dates,” she says. “We’re kind of lagging on that part of things.”
Costa Rica is a popular destination for celebrities. Pink married Carey Hart at the Four Seasons Resort Papagayo and Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller honeymooned at the same resort.
