DENVER -- Their's is a love story written in the outdoors. “I picked up the ring and took a ride up Golden Gate (where I proposed),” said Matt Wessels. “It had the desired effect.”

When it was time to plan the honeymoon, the couple decided on Nicaragua. For a steal of just $1,800, Luxurylink.com com took their money and they checked one more thing off their list.

“I was pretty excited about it but I was also suspicious because I thought it was too good to be true,” said Kate Spencer, Matt's fiancée.

Six months later they got an email telling them the company ceased operation. Luxury link disappeared and so did the couple's money.

"I thought it was a joke, but then I realize It wasn`t. I was pretty devastated,” Spencer said.

FOX31 Denver tracked down Luxury Link’s CEO Scott Morrow who said he was no longer with the company, even though he responded with a company email.

The couple now has a wedding gift for others : It's a warning. “If it seems too good to be true it probably is,” Wessels said.

Their honeymoon is off, for now. Friends started a GoFundMe page trying to get enough money for a trip.
