Military Mountain Wedding

Today's post is all about Hilary + Josh: Vermont Mountain Wedding at Stowe, with images courtesy of Kathleen Landwehrle Photography. I've actually never skied the east coast, and haven't been there during the summer, but from the looks of these pics, it's definitely on the travel bucket list. While this blog is for the Breckenridge and Summit County area (Vail and Beaver Creek too), we love to share mountain weddings in other areas around the world. We appreciate all the wonderful images submitted and shared with our blog.

Destination Mountain Resort Venue Reception

This Vermont mountain wedding shows a ski resort setting with outside ceremony and reception room. This is what we would call a traditional wedding. I would think that folks are staying in the nearby lodge, whereas smaller, non-traditional events might not need a venue or room this size. We've worked with many different couples and all with different ideas for their big day. Mountain top wedding with nothing but friends and family standing around you? It can happen. Ceremony and then hop on skis to enjoy the day? Yep, we've helped families celebrate slopeside.

Whatever it is you're thinking of and don't know where to start, well, this is your blog. And we're your team. You could hire a full-service wedding planner and even have a day-of coordinator. We know the best around. But, not everyone needs or wants that. We can help you figure out what you need and what you don't. Please contact us to learn more. Thanks for stopping by!

Jennifer + Bennett: Winter Wedding in Cascade, Idaho

White Wedding in Idaho

In today's blog post we're sharing from Jennifer + Bennett: Winter Wedding in Cascade, Idaho, with images courtesy of Cimbalik Photography. Idaho is actually one of the few places I haven't been to, but I've heard lots of good things! This set of images only confirms that notion, and even makes me want to consider a vow renewal or just a long vacation to explore all the nooks and crannies of a new mountain range.

Military Wedding

I hope you all had a good Independence Day, and 4th of July. And, one of the reasons we enjoy the freedoms we do is from the tireless service of our armed forces, and we salute you for all that you do. I'm always happy to share and acknowledge military service personnel with our blogsite, and this couple realized that they had better say "I do" sooner rather than later, as duties pulled the couple apart for some time. We wish the best to this and other military couples struggling with obligations and trying to make it all work. If that's you, and you need help putting together a custom package for your destination wedding or elopement, please be in touch. We can help you save some time and money while sourcing the best vendors, venues and services for your gathering.

Bennett and Jennifer were married on a perfect winter day at Bennett's childhood home. They had an intimate ceremony and a large reception following. Jennifer really embraced her winter wedding and went all out with accessories! She had adorable boots and scarves for all her bridesmaids and even had two fur-coats, one from her grandmother as well as Bennett's. They choose to have a winter wedding due to Bennett's upcoming military obligations later this year. They are such a beautiful and sweet couple and their love is equally as wonderful!

Amber + Josh: Navy Wedding After Session in Colorado

Amber + Josh: Navy Wedding After Session in Colorado | Image: Folly Photography There are many reasons to have an "after session" or bridal portrait session post-wedding, including wanting more time for family and friends instead of posing for pics, or it could be simply that you weren't entirely pleased with the ones captured, as the case with the couple in today's blog, Amber + Josh: Navy Wedding After Session in Colorado, with images courtesy of Folly Photography. You can't go back and get pics from the day, but you can always schedule another photo session with a photographer like couple did, or do it for your anniversary sometime.

Please contact us to learn more about setting up an after session, anniversary session, or a super secret proposal that needs to be caught on film. We're all about making dreams come true, and if that means staging photos with dramatic mountain backdrops, well, we can do that.

When my friend Amber mentioned to me (her photographer friend obsessed with weddings) that she had always been very disappointed in her original wedding photos I immediately suggested that we have a much belated post-wedding bridal portrait session. A lot of couples don’t understand the importance of choosing a high quality wedding photographer for their special day and you would be shocked how often I hear this lament! BUT, with age comes wisdom, and now that my clients know the value of quality photography the good news is that it’s never too late to have beautiful wedding photos, even if they’re not on the actual date.

Josh is active duty Navy and their family, including their three year old son, Zach, was preparing to quickly sell their home and move away from Colorado on military orders. They fell in love with the state while being stationed there so we made sure to incorporate a mountainous backdrop for some of their shots as a keepsake.

Amber just happened to also have a connection to a fabulously talented Denver dress designer, Maggie of Marie Margot Bridal Couture. With Maggie’s expert recommendations we settled on an exciting roaring 20’s Navy theme for Amber and Josh’s bridal shoot. With the styling set we brought on Denver hair and makeup artist Brittany of Alchemy Artistry and Blooms on Buckley for some fabulous flowers. You can see for yourself that the results were pure magic!

Rocky Mountain National Park is a dream destination location for brides looking for a spectacular mountain wedding on any scale. Jen + Cody wanted to just have a few close family at their intimate elopement just inside the park, right outside Estes Park, Colorado. Colorado Springs photographers Chris and Melodie shared with us this love-filled elopement. Check out Chris and Melodie Photographers take on their day here.

Please contact us to learn more about how to plan an elopement that is unique to you and your fiance. Each one is different from the next, and you just might see some of your pics on the blog that you're looking at right now!

A couple of years ago, I visited the park for the first time. The first place we stopped at was the Alluvial Falls below, and right away I was enraptured by this place. It's easy to see the beauty and naturalness this place has to offer anyone wanting a outdoor wedding.
