Winter Wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado

Today's post is all about Kelsey + Matt: Breckenridge Winter Wedding at the Double Tree with images courtesy of  Katie Keighin Photography. It's in the thick of the hottest days in Breck right now, and will be cooling off soon. In about one month is when the golden trees typically peak. The aspen trees brilliant color last for a few weeks and then make way for the white gold that the mountain resorts of Summit County are known for. Then, you can plan a romantic winter wedding, elopement or vow renewal with the magic of snow everywhere. The crisp air is a faint memory at this exact moment, as the garden flowers are still blooming and summer adventures are still being planned. But, time goes by fast, and if you need help, as you don't have enough time to do all the research, then we can set you up with a custom wedding package that will solve a lot of your problems. We'll even figure out if you need a full-fledged planner or day of coordinator on site. Some do, but not everyone does.

Double Tree Wedding Reception Venue in Breck

Just a short walk or even shorter drive from downtown Breck, the DoubleTree is on the lower slopes of Peak 9. The Beaver Run chairlift is across the street, as well as the Quiksilver six pack. Peak 10 is right there, and during the summer you have access to the ski area road and Burro Trail. Not many venues in Breckenridge can provide this kind of location, nestled right in between the ski area and historic district that is filled with shops and restaurants. This venue has a shuttle that transports guests around, but it is walkable. The church is in the historic area too, so it's all pretty close together. It still helps to have someone on hand with the bigger parties, as in this feature. Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you best. Thanks for stopping by!

Kelsey and Matt met at an ugly sweater Christmas party in 2011. Kelsey is from Nashville, TN and Matt is from Ann Arbor, MI. In 2011, Kelsey was living in Birmingham, AL working at her first job out of college. During that time, Matt was working on his PHD at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. While studying at Vanderbilt, Matt joined a baseball league and met one of Kelsey's good friends. Christmas of 2011, Kelsey traveled home to Nashville and was invited that friends ugly sweater Christmas party. Kelsey and Matt met at this party and became instant friends.

At one point in the evening Matt borrowed Kelsey's phone and recorded over 2 hours of funny videos. Kelsey and Matt went on to be friends for almost a year, when Kelsey moved back home to Nashville for a different job. A group of friends invited both Matt and Kelsey on a group camping trip at a local lake and they hit it off. Later that month, they had their first kiss at a bar on Music Row in Nashville and have basically been together ever since. One of the guys that hosted the party where they met was a groomsmen in their wedding.

Two years later Kelsey and Matt had purchased a house in Nashville and had two dogs, a maltipoo that Kelsey had since college and a retriever mix they rescued together. Kelsey was out running errands early on a Sunday and when she came home, their dogs came running down the staircase with little signs around their necks. One of them said "will you marry dad" and the other said "say yes".

When Kelsey got to the top of the staircase, Matt was down on one knee. He asked Kelsey if she would marry him and of course, she said yes. Matt was so nervous that he couldn't stand back up and Kelsey had to kneel down herself to help him get the ring on her finger. Matt and Kelsey now have three dogs and recently relocated from Nashville, TN to St. Louis, MO.

Fall Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in the Vail Valley

Today's post is all about Katherine + Shaun: Colorado Mountain Wedding at the Vail Racquet Club with images by Katie Keighin Photography. The weather gods cooperated with beautiful weather before a clear tent awaited at the venue. You never know what's going to happen, so I'm glad to see that the day went smooth, and I'm able to share them with you today. It looks simple enough, but you know that there was plenty of thought and effort going into those moments on the hillside. From the chairs to the hair, there are details that take time. And, how much time do you have? Please contact us to learn more about how we can help you work with vendors you find on our blog and help you find those that you'll be needing later on.

Vail Racquet Club Colorado Wedding Reception

Big venues are absolutely great for convenience and packages that include room, food and lodging. Vail and Beaver Creek have lots of options for upscale lodging and venues, and we've planned destination weddings for those areas, and we love the Vail Valley. Most know Vail for its back bowls and epic skiing, but it's an absolute summer paradise that's filled with wildflowers, creeks and trails begging to be explored. Take the gondola up and ride or walk down. Or, ride it back down and head to the village to explore the shops and have a nice lunch in one of the many restaurants. We appreciate all the photographers sharing their images with us, and we look forward to sharing more soon! Thanks for stopping by.

We met as clueless college kids working at a local bar on campus. We were friends for a while at first, and we didn't really hit it off until we went on a Halloween party bus with all of our coworkers. Shaun told his buddy he was going to marry Kat after that party bus.Fast forward a few years of graduations, long distance, and steady dating and we moved in together in a tiny studio in Denver Colorado. It was our first time living together and apart from all of our family and friends. After 3 years of dating, Shaun made the decision to move their relationship forward. He planned an engagement and an engagement party with Kat's friends while keeping it all a secret from her. Shaun proposed to Kat while on a hike in Golden Colorado, and completely took her by surprise. A few weeks later all of our friends came out for an engagement ski party in Vail and we had the most amazing time celebrating with our favorite people. We couldn't imagine getting married without our closest friends and family standing there with us, which is how we ended up with 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen. We may have had the largest wedding party in the world, but it was well worth it. Our wedding day was honestly the greatest day of our lives, and we couldn't be more grateful for this adventure we've been on for the last 4+ years together.
