The Riverwalk Center and the Wedding Pros in Breckenridge

The Wedding Professionals during a speed networking event, hosted by the Breckenridge Resort Chamber at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.

Today in Breckenridge, I went up to the Wedding Professionals speed networking event at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.   I met some new folks, two guys that run photo booths, separate companies, that are based in the Vail Valley.  Plus, I got to see local venue managers, a videographer (holding the baby above) and a rental company representative.  These folks made the effort to see who's doing what around town.  And we had two minutes to do it!

We had our meet up in the Imperial Ballroom, the most popular room at Beaver Run for weddings.  You see, from this room, you have mountains all around you, including the lower slopes of peak 9.  A chairlift out the door makes this venue a no-brainer for a convenient venue for a winter wedding that requires ski-in, ski-out, slopeside and in-town amenities.  

The Blue River Plaza is on the other side of the Riverwalk Center. It's a natural attraction that the kids love to walk in, hop from rock to rock and just be kids.

Now that we have another wedding season under our belt, we'll be updating our vendor directory with fresh new options for mountain shin digs.  And, if you are getting married and want some help figuring it all out, please contact us right now!

Lilia and Paul were married in the "old" side of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Breckenridge, went up to the slopes on Peak 9 to take a few photos and some video, and then concluded the evening dancing away in the Imperial Ballroom at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.

[PHOTO SHOOT LOCATION] Burro Trail: Creekside Paths on Peak 9 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort

// Burro Trail

Sometimes when we travel up the road on peak 9 and see photographers with the bridal party getting dusted by cars visiting the nearby stables or headed up to a wedding at Ten Mile Station.  Our suggestion is that if you're having a wedding and are based out of the south end of Breckenridge, then consider heading over to the Burro trail.  This trail extends south to connect with the Wheeler trail, and continues on other trails on Peak 9 as well.  However, you can save the exploring for another day, as you don't have to go very far to have lots of scenic options to walk and choose from.

Don't expect to have the trails to yourself right here, but photos can be focused to show only certain parts of the overall scene.    There are lots of logs, rocks and open spots near the stream to allow for a fantastic photo session.

As you look back, you can see the tent at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center, while the Quiksilver lift overhead sits quietly waiting to transport eager skiers and riders to the learning slopes on Peak 9.

We would classify this trail as a moderate to advanced, due to the sometimes steep sections and rock gardens that line the trail.  It's not completely flat, and therefore you won't want to hike very far in your formal wedding wear, but would be a great place to return with the family and kids for everyone to enjoy.

Dina points out the creek that makes for a great backdrop here.  A nice wooden bridge makes a nice stable, rock-free place to stand in heels too!  They're hard to see, but Dina's sporting the new barefoot-type shoe, but it's a ballet-style shoe.  She's been working in them, hiking in them, and has done a few trail runs in them.  Is there a barefoot shoe bride out there?  If so, we want pics!

Looking west, just before you enter the trailhead, you can the bowl on Peak 8 in the distance.  The Coppertop and Imperial Ballroom at the Beaver Run Resort have slope-side ceremony, reception, and lodging options.
