Summit Mountain Weddings


{Break from tradition}
{Create lasting experiences + memories for your next
amazing adventure together}
{Connect + give back to Mother Earth}

At Summit Mountain Weddings, we believe in passion, heart + Love. We believe in connecting with one another + with nature; that it brings beauty + peace to our otherwise normal daily hustle. Not everybody follows tradition, and that’s ok! Whether you decide to surprise everybody after your mountainside elopement or bring along your closest family for an intimate winter ceremony in the woods, SMW embraces flexibility, freedom + adventure to make your day as unique as you.

We know that experiences last longer than photos. Stunning photography is pretty important, also (to remember the moments for years to come!). Why stress over your wedding? Keep it simple: elope + do it your own way!

{How it All Works}

  • Reach out and say hello! The first step is the first contact, let me know who, what + when and I'll send you a formal proposal. {If you haven't yet, be sure to look at the packages offered and see what best fits your vision. Not sure? We can talk more together to figure out your best options!}
  • I'll book an officiant for you {if you need/want one; see #3 on this list for examples of legal marriages}.
  • Location, location, location. I've been photographing in Summit County for over seven years, and the scenery here is endless. We'll decide where + when to make it all happen!
  • We'll talk flowers! Based on a few of your preferences, I'll hire a florist to create some magic for your bouquet + boutonniere, along with any other florals you may want.
  • Looking for hair + makeup? Maybe a sweet, romantic restaurant for a special dinner afterwards? A videographer or cake for two? I work with an amazing group of other vendors + companies to bring your vision together.
  • The best part: I'll be there on your Big {or little!} Day and photograph every moment. You + your spouse will then receive all final/edited high-resolution digital images with your package.

When you book with Summit Mountain Weddings,
you help give back to our beautiful landscapes.

For every elopement session booked, SMW donates $10 to the National Forest Foundation,
which in turns helps to plant 10 new trees.
How cool is that?!

Dana + Connor embraced the idea of eloping to a tee: they exchanged vows in front of a few best friends in Dillon and then headed lakeside with more champagne, laughter + love to share!
