- The wedding of Denja Rand and Andrew Weibrecht, both of Lake Placid, took place Sunday at the Whiteface Club and Resort on the shores of Lake Placid. The couple exchanged vows in the presence of nearly 200 family and friends.
Weibrecht, the 2010 Olympic bronze medalist in Super G, and Rand, a current graduate student in Education, first met as youth when they skied with the New York Ski Educational Foundation at Whiteface Mountain. When not training and competing with the U.S. Ski Team, Andrew attends Dartmouth College. His family owns the Mirror Lake Inn Resort and Spa in this Adirondack Mountain village, and partially owns the Whiteface Club and Resort.
Rand graduated from the University of Vermont in 2007, and was a teacher and coach at the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid from 2008-2012.
Appropriately, the ceremony and reception occurred against the background of the Olympic Mountain, where Weibrecht learned his craft before going on to Olympic glory.
