Outside Ceremony in the Rocky Mountains
Witness the mountain love in today's post about Melanie + Paul, a Sapphire Point Wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado with images courtesy of Fototails - Jeanine Thurston Photography. This bride and groom chose to have an adventure wedding. They selected to have their friends and family meet them in one of the highest places in the Rocky Mountains to have their special moment. There might not be another setting that's more dramatic than end-to-end mountains of the Ten Mile and Gore Ranges stretching out, providing the surreal backdrop for your guests.

However, with this location you have the mountain weather to deal with. I've seen it absolutely still there, with no wind. Granted, that just after a brief, yet windy storm blew through and sprinkled a bit, leaving moist needles and a normally dusty trail, soft and damp. But, it can be nice or it can be windy and rainy. That kind of weather usually moves pretty fast, so cross your fingers, but bring your blankets and umbrellas. You know, just in case.
The chipmunks, squirrels, whatever they're called, are pretty outgoing because they're fed a bit. So, be prepared to deal with these locals when planning your day during the summer. Winter weddings have the trail to contend with. As you can see by the first images here, the trail is not maintained or shoveled, so bring your snow boots. Ski or trekking poles might be handy here. Look fun, or look scary? Either way, we're prepared to talk you through it and get you set up with custom package that is right for you. Please contact us to learn more and to stop stressing and start dreaming, so you can live your dreams.
