Summit County, Colorado Romantic Winter Getaway

Today's post is all about Alisha + Alex: Keystone Resort Engagement Photography with images courtesy of Dan Hand Photography. This couple made it a priority to visit Keystone, Colorado for their engagement photography session, and not too far away was Sapphire Point, an overlook an outdoor wedding ceremony location. There's a short walking loop that is about a mile near the overlook, so after your photos, wedding or vow renewal, you can take a stroll and see the geography of where three rivers meet, the Snake, Blue, and Ten Mile Creek, and are now where Dillon Reservoir gets its water. It freezes over in the winter, as you can see in these pics.

Engagement Photography at the Keystone Resort

We recommend the River Run Village in Keystone for a fun mountain base setting, or take the gondola up and have dinner at the Alpenglow Stube or Der Fondue Chessel at Timber Ridge on North Peak. Top it off with a sleigh ride during the winter, or downhill mountain bike ride in the summer. Winter is our favorite, for many reasons, and night skiing is just one of them. After smiling and posing for pics all day, have a hearty dinner before bundling up for the nighttime adventure of riding under the lights. You'll rely on your ability to absorb and read the terrain by feel more than by your eyes. Wear a helmet, drink hot cocoa and have some fun! Please contact us to learn more about how we can set up a photo shoot, destination elopement, wedding or vow renewal!

Alex and Alisha live in Omaha and frequently travel to Colorado to ski each winter. While visiting Keystone in February they wanted to have engagement photos taken after a day on the slopes. They had tons of chemistry and it really showed on camera. The weather was perfect.

Colorado Event Videography

I usually post sets of pictures that have been submitted via Two Bright Lights, but today's post is a video, Holly + David: Keystone Resort Wedding at Timber Ridge, that was produced by Elegant Productions, a Colorado wedding videography company that is headed by Erin Pellant. She's super sweet and so is this video. I always recommend a videographer as still images can't capture the mannerisms, the voices, and setting the way a video can. Ask us how we can work Erin and a video into a custom wedding package for your destination wedding at Keystone, Breckenridge or any of the mountain towns in Summit County or the Vail Valley.

Timber Ridge, Keystone Resort Wedding Venue

There are actually quite a few locations to choose from when planning a wedding in Keystone, and just a few choice locations include the Alpenglow Stube and Timber Ridge duo at the Outpost on North Peak (which require two gondolas to get to), the Keystone Ranch, and the Ski Tip Lodge. Plan a rehearsal dinner at one of the spots near the River Run Village, and you'll be set. In the winter time, you'll even have a snow fort and tubing hill as part of the wedding week experience for your guests. Friends and family will be talking about your wedding for a long time. Please contact us to learn more.

Katelyn + Jason: Colorado Mountain Wedding at the Keystone Ranch

Rainy Day Wedding at the Keystone Ranch

As with marriage and any relationship, there are more challenging days than others, but that didn't hold back the love in today's post, Katelyn + Jason: Colorado Mountain Wedding at the Keystone Ranch, with images courtesy of Susannah Storch Photography. The venue set up chairs, guests even had umbrellas, but there comes a time that the cold rain makes it uncomfortable to be outside. Well, if that's the case, make sure you all know when the cut off time will be, who will make the call, and don't hesitate. It takes time to reset the chairs, so you might as well get started sooner rather than later.

Colorado Mountain Wedding Planning

Some venues have on site managers, but they're not day of coordinators, so make sure you have secured a wedding planner, or a lead point bridesmaid and groomsmen that can communicate as the day unfolds. I recommend a planner or day of coordinator at the very least, to not overly stress your bridal party who could be distracted in numerous other ways. The day goes by really fast, and someone needs to be on the ball for making these kinds of calls. As you can see, the decision was made, and the party went off without a hitch. Smiles were had, love was shared and two people were married in the mountains. Rain or shine, the love must go on. Please contact us to learn more.

ALBUM STORY

Jason and Katelyn got married at Keystone Ranch in Summit County. Originally, they were going to get hitched at the Ski Tip Lodge (both are wedding venues operated by Keystone Resort), but due to some cold weather/scenery issues, Keystone Resorts did an AMAZING job relocating the wedding at the last minute. AMAZING! And although it rained on the wedding day (no outside first look or wedding ceremony), again, Keystone Resorts did an AMAZING job accommodating last minute changes.

The couple met through the bride's brother. He did not initially want his friend dating his sister, but once the bride and groom met, the brother could not stand in the way!

The couple relocated to San Diego, but held their wedding in Colorado, where they met and fell in love.

Keystone Resort Wedding

The wedding day starts off with a gondola ride so folks can be there for Carrie + Mike: Alpenglow Stube Wedding at the Keystone Ski Resort, images courtesy of Black Forest Photography. Once at the top of the mountain, the guests walk to the Keytop Overlook, for an outside ceremony with views of Mt. Baldy, Mt. Guyot, the Breckenridge Ski Resort, the Ten Mile Range and the Continental Divide. Guests may need supplemental oxygen at this point, because if the dramatic mountain ceremony doesn't take their breath away, the lack of oxygen at 11,000 feet just might. Just kidding! Actually, acute altitude sickness is a real thing. Please seek help immediately if someone in your party is experiencing difficulties breathing or doesn't feel right. Health and safety is priority #1.

Alpenglow Stube Reception Dinner

After dinner, and probably before, the guests might be consuming alcohol. I recommend matching one glass of water for every glass of wine, beer, or shot you consume. That, and some good food, and you're ready to party all night. The chefs at the Alpenglow Stube put on a tremendous dinner experience, and a nice touch to end the evening is to send guests home with a blanket, LED glow stick of some kind, as the gondolas are not illuminated. Most cell phones have lights too, so that's always an option.

Thanks for reading, and please contact us if you need help and aren't sure if a planner is needed (if you do, we know the best ones), as some couples just know what they want and don't need a lot of fuss. That's where we come in.

ALBUM STORY

Keystone has a very special meaning to Carrie and Mike so they chose it to say their vows. It was a very special family affair with their children as their wedding party. Many tears of joy were shed. What a magnificent setting for a wonderful couple.

Mountain Top Matrimony

You'll find jaw-dropping panoramic views from the Keystone Resort in this post titled, Ashley + Morgan: Keystone, Colorado Wedding at Timber Ridge, with images courtesy of Brinton Studios. Guests will ride two gondolas en route to North Peak, with opportunities for the wedding party, and guests, to take pics at the transfer between gondolas, in which you must walk across the mountain top. To the west lie two mountain ranges, the Gore and Ten Mile.

The lake you see is actually Dillon Reservoir, another great spot for weddings. Once at Timber Ridge, options are available for a ski slope wedding on the aptly named ski run, Anticipation. Or, choose the deck outside the reception room with massive ceilings and huge log timbers. If it rains, the ceremonies have taken place inside.

Keystone, Colorado Wedding Packages

One suggestion is to provide guests with some sort of LED lighting and a blanket for the gondola ride home. The gondolas don't have interior lighting and aren't heated. It's a short ride, so don't worry too much about that. Ask us how we can help you create a custom wedding package at the Keystone Resort!

ALBUM STORY

Morgan and Ashley were some of the sweetest people we have been around in a long time. It’s no wonder they had such an amazing group of friends and family surrounding them. As deserved, they managed to get married on the only day it hadn’t rained in a long time and tied the knot on a perfect blue bird day. The top of Keystone mountain at Timber Ridge made for an amazing backdrop and Heather with Table Six Productions and The Perfect Petal did what they do best and served up absolute stunning decor! We had such a wonderful time with our former CSU grads. Thank you for being such a pleasure to be around!
