Whistler, British Columbia Mountain Elopement

Today's post is all about Amy + Adam: Rainbow Mountain Helicopter Elopement in Whistler, British Columbia with images courtesy of matdivad photography. This mountain top wedding is simply amazing and had to be shared. We get couples looking for unique ideas to celebrate their love, and only a handful of operations use helicopters in Colorado. I've driven through British Coumbia, but was much further north, putting my truck on a ferry to Juneau. The forest is a rainforest and is super wet, creating heavy maritime snows for resorts in the Pacific Northwest. If you love mountains as much as we do, you'll make the trip sometime to explore a moss-covered landscape mixture of mountains and ocean. It's so beautiful and worth it.

Adventure Weddings and Destination Elopements

You could actually get married in Colorado, and then head north to explore. Or, vice versa. Either way, if you the adventurous type and wants suggestions for planning a Colorado elopement or small wedding, then please contact us to learn if we can help you put together a custom wedding package. Some brides and grooms are mountain people are up for backcountry adventures as part of their wedding. Others are more urban and want refined luxuries, but with a mountainous setting. We know of great options for those, and we'd love to help you if you need it. Scroll the blog and then let us know what your dream day looks like.

Amy and Adam are true adventurists and wanted to get married in their own element. They spend vast amounts of time up in the mountains so it only makes sense for them to get married up there! They had a beautiful ceremony with some very touching vows to each other followed by a portrait session on the mountain.

Vintage VW Bus Engagement Photography Session

Today's post is all about Megan + Thomas: VW Bus Engagement Photography in British Columbia with images courtesy of Clint Bargen Photography. I accepted this submission as it reminded me of a road trip that Dina and I did a few years back. We flew into San Francisco and saw Galactic with Charlie 2na at the Fillmore. The next day we took the train to a car rental company that we rented a westfalia from and drove along the coastal byway towards Santa Cruz. A beach in British Columbia would be a fun place to hang out with a bus. This couple did just that to celebrate their engagement. How fun is that?

Wheels, Rails and Boats

So, when it comes down to it, you'll have your choice of wheels, rails and boats when it comes to transportation in and around Colorado. Wheels being found on cars and even the landing gear of small aircraft. Rails for the various rail road tracks and train excursions around. And boats, meaning the water craft that explore our alpine lakes. You can have some fun activities planned for your engagement shoot like a background piece being either mountains or something large like the bus here. You can also hop a small plane to Vail or Telluride from the Denver area and find dramatic backdrops there.

For the Breckenridge and Summit County areas, I think a unique feature is to get out on the water and take some pics. We had a pontoon parade after our outdoor ceremony at Lake Dillon. But, do what feels right for you. And if you need some help putting it all together, we can help with that. We help plan a lot of destination weddings and elopements, but surprise proposals and engagement shoots are part of what we do too. Please contact us to learn more. Thanks for reading!

Got the call from these two cross border lovers (she's American and he's a Canuck like me) last month. Thomas wanted to know if we could use his vintage VW bus in some photos and I was down for that! Can't be that classic feel.

Manning Park Resort Wedding

Today's photographs of Kimberly + Dale: Manning Park Resort Wedding in British Columbia, are courtesy of Charlene Stam Photography and were submitted via Two Bright Lights. We are a Colorado wedding blog specializing in Summit County and the Vail Valley, however when I saw this set of images, I just had to share.

Destination Mountain Weddings, Elopements and More

This British Columbia mountain setting is absolutely breathtaking and looks very similar to the terrain here in Breckenridge. Perhaps this location would be good for engagement photos before your wedding in Breckenridge. Or, mountain lovers should just book a trip now and go there for their honeymoon. Either way, this set of peaks and valleys is on my bucket list of places to visit. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you customize a package with qualified vendors and services that will save you time and money!

Kim & Dale are both avid outdoor adventurers. This much was clear from the moment we met for coffee to talk about the vision they had for their photos. I always try to encourage my couples to think outside the box and to choose themes or places that mean something to them to that they'll really get the most out of their pictures so I was pumped when they asked if I'd be willing to come along with them on one of their rock climbing excursions at the Harrison Bluffs in beautiful Agassiz, BC. They scaled the wall of a mountain during this session and so it was no surprise when they secured Manning Park Resort as their wedding venue.

Their first look was in the Alpine Meadows at the very top of a mountain! Kim hiked a good 5 minutes IN HER DRESS from the parking lot to their location for the first look, where we meandered off into formal photos as well. The ceremony took place on a lookout point with mountains, valleys and every shade of blue in the background. The wind blew softly and wild critters scurried around while they shared vows. It really was a most romantic day.
