[Hindsight 20/20] Groom's advice: Ask for help, so you can enjoy the day.

Looking back, all my friends and family coming to Breckenridge for our wedding was a dream come true.  To have everyone together for a few amazing hours was totally worth it.  Relishing the moment and remembering how each person played a role in your life is an indescribable feeling.  You'll know what I mean when you have yours.

We chose to have our wedding on the shore of Lake Dillon at the Frisco Bay Marina.  We worked it out that a patch of grass be maintained to where we could have our ceremony looking at two fourteeners in the distance, with mountains surrounding us.

As someone who's in the wedding industry, and lives in Breckenridge, it was still very time-consuming to explore options, talk to vendors and finalize details.  We not only have knowledge and experience of working many weddings and special events in the area, but we also know what it's like to have the worries about money, who pays for what and the concerns of planning this whole experience for everyone.

We know the problems that you'll encounter and the choices you'll have to make.   What's best is that we also know the people you need to solve those problems.  You'll get a piece of mind knowing that real mountain folks are helping you plan your mountain wedding.

Groom's Tip - Ask for help

Looking back, I would have asked a few more of the guys to pitch in and help out, so I could've relaxed more.  After a late night catching up, all the guys were busy or conveniently missing when I set up the chairs for the ceremony.

I really didn't mind working a bit at my own wedding, but now realize I wish I would've taken it a bit more easy and utilized the man power that was present.

I guess I wanted everyone to enjoy themselves, and not have to strain themselves, as most of the visitors were not used to the altitude.  Working many events over the years, I've now seen how many bridal parties don't do much but take pictures, eat great food and enjoy the moment.  I did just that, but in my own way.

After the ceremony we had a pontoon parade that toured Lake Dillon and created a perspective that you don't see from terra firma.  We're kayakers and enjoy the peaceful morning paddles and that's what prompted us to share this lake experience during our mountain wedding.  A speeding boat created a tense-filled moment where I thought my new wife and I would be swimming in the cold, alpine lake.  But, that is for another story...
