It's the best destination wedding ever. No flip flops (well, you can if you really want to), but instead you see boots of shapes and sizes, some furry, some not. Ski and snowboard gear are freshly waxed and waiting for fresh snow to fall. The fire is crackling and everyone is holding a variety of Colorado microbrews that were handpicked just for this gathering. If your idea of a dream wedding is snow-capped peaks, world-class skiing and lots of options for lodging, then Breckenridge and the ski resorts in Summit County are just what you're looking for.
You'll be smack dab in the middle of Colorado ski country with at least nine resorts within an hour's drive of each other. A winter wedding in the Rocky Mountains is a totally unique, and totally worth it. Some brides and grooms get whisked away in a car, ride off on bicycles, but you can be the first in your family to ski or ride away into the sunset. Sound good? Contact us and let's plan something you've always dreamed of.

In this image by Carl Scofield, you can see the Continental Divide stretch out in the distance. Now look to see if you notice the two tallest peaks in the ridgeline, Grays and Torreys. These mountains are known as "14'ers." A 14'er is a 14000 foot peak if you didn't know. You can see the mountains I'm talking about in the photo above, just to the right of the right ski pole, just below the cloud's left edge.
I've been up on those peaks in the summer and after summiting one peak a thunderstorm rolled in. Lightning cracked all around us and we dropped elevation quickly. We retreated and came down.
In the winter, you can enjoy the high mountains for extended periods without threat of lightning. Well, most of the time. Sometimes they shut the lifts down in April when the snow turns to rain. But, that's a ways off yet. There's still plenty of time for wintery weddings and apres ski moments to look forward to. Spring can wait.
The bottom line is, if you want to ski and get married in the mountains, we're here to help. Contact us and we'll handle the rest. Photos in this blog are courtesy of longtime Breck local Carl Scofield, who is an amazing photographer and encouraging drum circle leader.
