Rivers and Mountains and an Outdoor Ceremony

Today's post is all about Stephanie + Chris: Riverside Ranch Wedding in Idaho with images courtesy of Cimbalik Photography. We took a bit of a short break for Thanksgiving, and for mountain people who live in resort towns, that means working through the holiday and then taking your break AFTER the true holiday! So, we're a few days behind on posting this, but I'm sure you were busy with friends and family, and perhaps starting to talk about a destination wedding with an outdoor ceremony near mountains and rivers. You could choose Idaho, as this blog shows, and is a beautiful setting. And, that's why decided to share this one with you, because of its unique mountain setting.

Destination Weddings in the Mountains

You won't find a big red barn like this in Breck, so if this is your thing, then you better go with a destination event in Idaho. Otherwise, if the Colorado Rocky Mountains are your thing, then that's where we come in. We're actually getting contacted by quite a few couples right now, and some are asking if they can subtract or add some things from some of our advertised wedding packages. Yes, is the answer. We put those up as examples, and then we go in and figure out what works best for each couple. Please contact us to learn more, and thanks for stopping by and checking out this blog!

This beautiful riverside wedding took place on a pristine fall day in the beautiful, picturesque mountains of McCall, Idaho. The amount of love that was floating around was quite indescribable. There was so much love between Stephanie and Chris as well as everyone's love for the couple. It was one of those weddings that you simply felt honored to have a part in. Stephanie and Chris are such a great couple. They paid so much attention to every detail of their wedding. Kim Carley from Cypress Events did a wonderful job coordinating the event! From the emotional first look on the bridge, to the crazy dancing and divine late night munchies from Horsewood Catering, this wedding was everything you would want your wedding to be. Brimming with love, laughter and fun!

Rustic New England Barn Wedding

Today's post is all about Lindsey + Matt: New England Barn Wedding at the Salem Cross Inn with images courtesy of the Twisted Oaks Studio. This was another fun wedding that was submitted via Two Bright Lights that I just couldn't pass up. A large red barn, lush green trees and smiling bridesmaids and groomsmen add to the loving atmosphere and setting you see in this collection of images. We have lots of local weddings coming up, so please check back soon.

Destination Wedding Planning and Packages

If you've found this blog, chances are you're considering an elopement, wedding or vow renewal in Colorado. We want to help you live your dreams and plan a romantic getaway with just the two of you, or a group of friends and family.

We're working with couples and with our 20+ years of experience planning flowers for over 1,000 weddings as the former owners of Petal and Bean, we know the best teams and service providers that will help you make your dream go as smooth as possible. We built this Breckenridge wedding blog for you. So, enjoy a few posts from exotic and domestic locations, but we have a majority of our posts that focus on the mountain towns near Breck and Vail. Thanks for reading and please contact us with any questions!

A true love story, Matt and Lindsey met back in 2011 at a football game for the first time and started dating shortly after. 3 years later Matt proposed to the girl of his dreams at a Christmas tree farm just 3 days before Christmas, and she said yes! Their wedding was at the beautiful rustic New England farm venue, Salem Cross Inn, in West Brookfield, MA, and the weather was perfect. They had met us at a previous wedding we had shot at the same venue and knew they wanted us to photograph theirs. We shot a mix of film and digital to help tell the story of their day and we couldn't be more excited to show this wedding off.

Ask us about dog-friendly housing for your small wedding, and we know lots of trails that are perfect for getting off the beaten path.

Craig and Hannah met in 2014 as backpacking guides for Rocky Mountain Regional Backcountry (RMR), which is a Young Life wilderness adventure program that was established in Colorado in 1995. For months after they met, Hannah attempted to set Craig up with one of her closest friends. It wasn't until Hannah and Craig guided a trip together leading kids through the wilderness that they became enamored with each other. With packs on their backs, adventuring through the Rocky Mountains with high schoolers, Hannah witnessed Craig in his fully glory and Craig saw Hannah's raw beauty. To seal the deal, Craig proposed the following winter on a ski hill.

[ Photo Shoot Location ] The Barns at the Back Ranch in Keystone, Colorado  |  Destination Wedding, Summit County, Kay Beaton, Beaton Photography

The Keystone Ranch barns are an amazing set of buildings to be able to use as a backdrop for some photos.  Ask us how you can work with talented wedding photographers such as Colorado-based Kay Beaton, who after calling Summit County home for many years, has decided to try the front range.  She loves to work and by work, I mean go skiing, hiking and sharing our mountains with clients who are mountain folks themselves, and need a photographer who can follow them along the mountain adventure chosen for that particular shoot.

You see, we are designing adventure wedding experiences for couples, families and planners wanting to craft personalized mountain gatherings, while saving both time and money.  When you work with our team, you'll have a team of local wedding pros to help and guide your planning, design your event theme, palette and to work out details of design style if you would like.  

When asked about the barns in this collection of photos, she says that "we have three weddings coming up in September all at Keystone Ranch, I decided before wedding day I should check out the accessibility of these beautiful barns. I have seen lots of dynamic photos of them over the years, but have never been there myself.

So yesterday I ventured out and learned how beautiful it is - although they are a little hard to access if you're not a golfer or a bride! They are old historic barns smack between the 6th and 8th greens and it does take some "golfer etiquette" to get there backwards on the course. For couples that have booked a Keystone Ranch wedding, I highly recommend taking the 20 minutes to do couple photos out there at the barns!

I have photographed a few golf tournaments, and have learned to drive a golf cart backwards on the course…. I have learned lots of lessons from the beverage cart drivers as they do it all day everyday! AND with the brides I'll be sure to keep the plexiglass top all the way down and not risk a stray golf ball before the reception photos!"

Just moments ago, Katie Girtman of Studio Kiva Photography popped by with Katie and Tucker on the day before their wedding at Ten Mile Station.  This is a great idea, as couples might not have as much time on the big day to wander around and get styled photos for their wedding collection.

When you work with locals, they'll be able to take you to the cabins with character, like at the Lomax Placer historical site, or even towards the dredge up in French Gulch.

When you park in the big parking lot south of the gondola, you'll see this sign.  Walk across the bridge and you'll see the barn!

I pulled the door shut and this is a sweet spot for some Breckenridge wedding photos, don't you think?  Who's next?
