One of my favorite events, the 2015 International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado just happened. If you visit Breck in the next week or so, they'll still be up. Well, not all of them. One of them has already toppled over. These works of temporary snow art are finite in their existence, being stressed by wind, the weight of the snow and the sun. I love seeing the finished snow sculptures, and the kid's interactive piece is always a hit, but I've grown to appreciate the skill and teamwork that's required to bring these dreams to life. It makes me of how we are a team, and when working with brides, planners and their vendor teams, we also bring visions to life. We help brides live their dreams planning a wedding in the mountains. It's not easy, it's not done overnight, but look what you can create when you put some time and energy into creating something beautiful.

Here's the teaser video I shot before the snow sculpting teams had arrived. It also shows a glimpse of what summer offers, the Blue River next to the Riverwalk Center, and a memorial to the 10th Mountain Division, the Soldiers of the Summit who fought in WWII. These brave men were ... "originally constituted as a unique mountain warfare unit, the division was the only unit of its size in the U.S. Army to specialize in fighting in mountainous and arctic conditions."

Please contact us with any questions about the winter and summer events that happen in Breckenridge and the nearby mountain towns of Frisco, Copper Mountain, Dillon, Keystone, Silverthorne, Vail and Beaver Creek. We can help you figure out when there will be live music, farmer's markets and more. We understand that all of this adds up to your overall wedding week experience for your family and friends.

The first picture shows my favorite creation from this year's competition, but this blog show's the Highlights from the International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado. If you're lucky enough to be in town while the sculpting happens, you've seen how hard all these teams work through the sun, snow and elements that exist at 10,00 feet in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

It has begun.  The forms are up, and the first few blocks are already in place.  These square blocks are carved by hand, by teams from all over the world, and right here in downtown Breckenridge.  I saw these just today and it made me think to share some ideas with you all.  These temporary works of art attract thousands of visitors, couples and families with cameras in hand.  Why not turn it into a photo shoot?

That's right.  Hire a pro and take some photos in and around the snow sculptures in Breck.  If you need help planning it all out, setting up flowers at a restaurant, transportation, or other details, that's what we do best.  We're longtime locals with lots of ideas for adventure wedding packages including dog sledding, skiing and snowboarding, snowmobiling and other fun stuff.
