Rivers and Mountains and an Outdoor Ceremony

Today's post is all about Stephanie + Chris: Riverside Ranch Wedding in Idaho with images courtesy of Cimbalik Photography. We took a bit of a short break for Thanksgiving, and for mountain people who live in resort towns, that means working through the holiday and then taking your break AFTER the true holiday! So, we're a few days behind on posting this, but I'm sure you were busy with friends and family, and perhaps starting to talk about a destination wedding with an outdoor ceremony near mountains and rivers. You could choose Idaho, as this blog shows, and is a beautiful setting. And, that's why decided to share this one with you, because of its unique mountain setting.

Destination Weddings in the Mountains

You won't find a big red barn like this in Breck, so if this is your thing, then you better go with a destination event in Idaho. Otherwise, if the Colorado Rocky Mountains are your thing, then that's where we come in. We're actually getting contacted by quite a few couples right now, and some are asking if they can subtract or add some things from some of our advertised wedding packages. Yes, is the answer. We put those up as examples, and then we go in and figure out what works best for each couple. Please contact us to learn more, and thanks for stopping by and checking out this blog!

This beautiful riverside wedding took place on a pristine fall day in the beautiful, picturesque mountains of McCall, Idaho. The amount of love that was floating around was quite indescribable. There was so much love between Stephanie and Chris as well as everyone's love for the couple. It was one of those weddings that you simply felt honored to have a part in. Stephanie and Chris are such a great couple. They paid so much attention to every detail of their wedding. Kim Carley from Cypress Events did a wonderful job coordinating the event! From the emotional first look on the bridge, to the crazy dancing and divine late night munchies from Horsewood Catering, this wedding was everything you would want your wedding to be. Brimming with love, laughter and fun!

Whistler, British Columbia Mountain Elopement

Today's post is all about Amy + Adam: Rainbow Mountain Helicopter Elopement in Whistler, British Columbia with images courtesy of matdivad photography. This mountain top wedding is simply amazing and had to be shared. We get couples looking for unique ideas to celebrate their love, and only a handful of operations use helicopters in Colorado. I've driven through British Coumbia, but was much further north, putting my truck on a ferry to Juneau. The forest is a rainforest and is super wet, creating heavy maritime snows for resorts in the Pacific Northwest. If you love mountains as much as we do, you'll make the trip sometime to explore a moss-covered landscape mixture of mountains and ocean. It's so beautiful and worth it.

Adventure Weddings and Destination Elopements

You could actually get married in Colorado, and then head north to explore. Or, vice versa. Either way, if you the adventurous type and wants suggestions for planning a Colorado elopement or small wedding, then please contact us to learn if we can help you put together a custom wedding package. Some brides and grooms are mountain people are up for backcountry adventures as part of their wedding. Others are more urban and want refined luxuries, but with a mountainous setting. We know of great options for those, and we'd love to help you if you need it. Scroll the blog and then let us know what your dream day looks like.

Amy and Adam are true adventurists and wanted to get married in their own element. They spend vast amounts of time up in the mountains so it only makes sense for them to get married up there! They had a beautiful ceremony with some very touching vows to each other followed by a portrait session on the mountain.

Hilary + Josh: Vermont Mountain Wedding at Stowe

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!

Lydia + Daniel: Winter Mountain Wedding at Lake Louise, Alberta

Winter Mountain Wedding at Lake Louise

Today's post is all about Lydia + Daniel: Winter Mountain Wedding at Lake Louise, Alberta with images courtesy of ENV Photography. This snowy scene is in the northern spine of the Rocky Mountains. I followed this magnificent stretch of rock as I drove to Alaska. Part of my trip was to go along the Icefields Parkway, near Banff, up to Jasper before heading further west to the coast to put my truck on a ferry to Juneau. Many dramatic ridges and mountains are in this area, and if you love Colorado, you definitely need to visit the Lake Louise area. Perhaps a vow renewal location for a future getaway?

Destination Event Packages in the Rockies

If you are considering a romantic event in the Rockies, then please contact us. We can come up with all sorts of ideas and creative solutions for whatever adventure wedding you have in mind. Just now I'm thinking that someone could actually ride touring bikes with their bride either to or from Colorado to this area in one epic push. Please contact us to learn more about how we can put together a custom wedding package just for you. If you need a day of coordinator or full on wedding planner, then we can steer you towards the best around. But, for those that don't need a full-fledged planner, but need someone local who's familiar with the wedding scene and local options, well then, that's where we come in. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to hear from you soon!

Lydia:

Overall I was looking forward to my wedding because it had consumed my life for the past 12 months and I wanted to get it over with.. haha no i’m totally kidding. I looked forward the most to just becoming Daniel’s wife, taking his name and celebrating this incredible day in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. Everything was a dream come true and I wouldn’t have changed a thing except to go back and do it all over again the exact same way.

I have 3 very special memories I will never forget. The first was the look on my husband’s face when I entered the room – I didn’t take my eyes off him (except to check on my teary eyed dad who then made me ball as well :P) I had that flutter in my belly – the same kind I got when he took me out on our first date, he is the most wonderful man and I felt so blessed in that moment to be in a room full of everyone who I care about witness us finally make our lifelong vows.

The second favorite part for me was dancing with my father to when you wish upon a star. I have thought about that moment since I was a little girl ( I think he has too) it was so special for us, I can’t imagine getting married without my dad – it was definitely a wish we both made a very long time ago and it came true.

The third is a memory that was captured at night…(you might already know which one it is) I love that for a moment time stood still and I was standing with Daniel alone on the frozen lake – snowflakes falling on my eyelashes and kissing him in front of the most beautiful backdrop. It felt like we were in a dream world and was super special for both of us and I thank you so much for taking us back out there to experience it. That photo is priceless because it tells our love story all on its own.

Daniel:

What I most looked forward to leading up to and the day of our wedding was the moment that I would be able to see Lydia walk out of the foyer and enter the room. It was the only moment that I had tears come to my eye, as she looked so beautiful. I was so excited for her to become my wife and to spend the rest of my life with her. I think one of your photos catches this moment where I am tearing haha.

Another of my favorite moments was after the ceremony when Lydia, the bridal party, and I were outside taking the photographs. It was a great experience and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture those moments. You allowed us to feel completely at ease in front of the camera and we were able to be ourselves. Your photos will forever be in our memory.

A last memory (that is already hanging on our wall on a huge blown up picture) was when Lydia and I snuck out during the reception with you to take the pictures by the ice castle. It was like a fantasy for Lydia and I to have these pictures taken, and no one but you could have captured it so perfectly.
