Couple Skis to Wedding Ceremony in Breckenridge

Today's post is all about Angela + Chris: Bride and Groom Ski to Wedding Ceremony in Breckenridge with images courtesy of Timothy Faust Photography. This bride and groom chose to take a few runs and enjoyed the snow at the Breckenridge Ski Resort before joining friends and family at the base village area. What a way to celebrate the day!

Destination Adventures for Colorado Weddings and Elopements

A few years we decorated a wedding venue at the base of the slopes. It was an 8am ceremony, which means we were on site at 6 am setting up. That made for an extremely early morning of getting up, going to the shop and then loading and unloading. All in time for the 8am start! And, afterwards the couple and family went skiing. Now, that's a great way to have a destination wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Whether you want to ski to your wedding, or after your wedding, it's up to you. We're here to help you see it through. Please contact us to learn more about how we can customize a wedding package that is matched with photographers who can ski or ride with you, and others who are seasoned mountain wedding professionals and can anticipate the inclement weather and variables. Thanks for stopping by!

Chris and Angie had a really fun idea for a wedding: ski down from the top of Breckenridge Ski Area together to their ceremony at Mountain Thunder Lodge. Finding a photographer who was willing and able to go on that adventure with them could have been a challenge, so I am really glad they gave me a call.

Setting Up At The Mountain Thunder Lodge in Breckenridge, Colorado.

We just dropped off centerpieces at the Mountain Thunder Lodge, near the historic downtown area and gondola.  Here we saw colorful Pez dispensers as place card holders and a yummy-looking candy buffet table.  This is a another real-time blog post that we just are adding a few details from the desktop, but the majority was a mobile blogging effort!

I really dig how they used all sorts of characters in the Pez placecards, including Boba Fett!

One favorite thing we keep seeing at weddings are some super comfy flip flops that folks can wear and get comfortable before hittin' the dance floor!

Intimate and serene, Mountain Thunder Lodge is a memorable location. The outdoors come inside when the beautiful French doors are opened onto the forested patio.
