Daniel Parker Loutrel weds Heidi Gamma

Heidi Gamma and Dan Loutrel were married on the afternoon of July 1 at Towle Field in Carlisle. The Rev. Timothy Jensen performed the ceremony in a small gathering of family and friends.

Heidi is the daughter of Karl and Alice Gamma of Andermatt, Switzerland. Dan is the son of Stephen and Elizabeth Loutrel of Woodridge Road, Carlisle. Heidi and Dan met through a mutual friend, Osito, who is a big white dog with pointed ears.

Following a honeymoon kite-surfing and rock-climbing in Oregon and Washington, Heidi and Dan moved into an old house in Andermatt, a small alpine village. In Andermatt they are working on establishing their new business, Birdos Freeride Skis, specializing in designing and producing skis for new-school riding. Heidi also works as a ski instructor, and in their spare time they escape into the mountains for some fun.
