The Riverwalk Center and the Wedding Pros in Breckenridge

The Wedding Professionals during a speed networking event, hosted by the Breckenridge Resort Chamber at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.

Today in Breckenridge, I went up to the Wedding Professionals speed networking event at the Beaver Run Resort and Conference Center.   I met some new folks, two guys that run photo booths, separate companies, that are based in the Vail Valley.  Plus, I got to see local venue managers, a videographer (holding the baby above) and a rental company representative.  These folks made the effort to see who's doing what around town.  And we had two minutes to do it!

We had our meet up in the Imperial Ballroom, the most popular room at Beaver Run for weddings.  You see, from this room, you have mountains all around you, including the lower slopes of peak 9.  A chairlift out the door makes this venue a no-brainer for a convenient venue for a winter wedding that requires ski-in, ski-out, slopeside and in-town amenities.  

The Blue River Plaza is on the other side of the Riverwalk Center. It's a natural attraction that the kids love to walk in, hop from rock to rock and just be kids.

Now that we have another wedding season under our belt, we'll be updating our vendor directory with fresh new options for mountain shin digs.  And, if you are getting married and want some help figuring it all out, please contact us right now!

[Venue] The Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge, Colorado

In the heart of Breckenridge is the Welcome Center, the Blue River Plaza, and the Riverwalk Center.  These town attractions provide information, a gathering place in the middle of town and a venue that hosts many musical events throughout the year.  You see, when I last talked with venue manager, Vanessa, she really didn't want to push it too much, as she didn't want to get any brides hopes up, and then have to let them down.  

Throughout the popular summer months, musicians from around the world descend upon the Blue River valley and train to perform in front of locals and guests at the various performances.  Some recognizable names make their way into town as well, and those tend to happen on the weekends.  

 Actually, I just checked it out, and it looks  she just updated the town page to reflect the most current recommendations and policies and it shows the ONLY available dates for next summer.  

Here's what they are:

June 1, 2013
June 8, 2013
September 7, 2013
September 21, 2013
September 28, 2013 

*There are still a few fall 2012 dates available.

Four foot round tables were recommended, and linens and decor can carry your color palette and theme.  Open the clear, garage-style doors to the large lawn that has the Blue River running next to it.  Have your ceremony on the lawn and the reception inside.  Ask us how we can pull it all together and make it seamless.  

Please mention this blog when contacting Vanessa at the town to discuss the Riverwalk!  We'll also throw in  a ring pillow when you book a planning package for the Riverwalk.  Just mention this post and let's plan something fun at the Riverwalk Center in the downtown historic area of one of the best mountain towns in the Rocky Mountains!
