Holly + David: Keystone Resort Wedding at Timber Ridge [Video]

Colorado Event Videography

I usually post sets of pictures that have been submitted via Two Bright Lights, but today's post is a video, Holly + David: Keystone Resort Wedding at Timber Ridge, that was produced by Elegant Productions, a Colorado wedding videography company that is headed by Erin Pellant. She's super sweet and so is this video. I always recommend a videographer as still images can't capture the mannerisms, the voices, and setting the way a video can. Ask us how we can work Erin and a video into a custom wedding package for your destination wedding at Keystone, Breckenridge or any of the mountain towns in Summit County or the Vail Valley.

Timber Ridge, Keystone Resort Wedding Venue

There are actually quite a few locations to choose from when planning a wedding in Keystone, and just a few choice locations include the Alpenglow Stube and Timber Ridge duo at the Outpost on North Peak (which require two gondolas to get to), the Keystone Ranch, and the Ski Tip Lodge. Plan a rehearsal dinner at one of the spots near the River Run Village, and you'll be set. In the winter time, you'll even have a snow fort and tubing hill as part of the wedding week experience for your guests. Friends and family will be talking about your wedding for a long time. Please contact us to learn more.

 Ah, yes, a Labor day wedding weekend in the Colorado Rockies.  There may not be a more perfect weekend in the summer in the Colorado High Country. Typically, right about now the August monsoon moisture is usually drying up, the wildflowers are still vibrant and the aspen leaves are just starting to think about changing.  However, times aren't typical.  We went from 500+ inches of snow to drought conditions.  So, right now, the leaves are already starting to change, about two weeks ahead of schedule.  

Regardless, the weather is always secondary to the event on hand.  And, that means, the party must go on.  Yes, rain, sun or snow, the Fall can bring unexpected, yet very brief bouts of weather.  The thunderstorms are getting less frequent, and there's always a chance of snow with the right mix of conditions.  But, on the other hand, you can still wear flip flops and feel the warm summer sun, and have the best of both worlds.  A warm (or, as warm as its gonna get) mountain environment, perfect for traveling long distances to a destination wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  It's doable during the winter, just not as predictable as the summer months.

Once you've decided (and accepted) that not all things can be controlled and you're willing to being your adventure planning a wedding in the mountains, then you need to decide which area you want to spend time in.  Hands down, two of the most popular areas for Colorado is Breckenridge and the Summit County area.  Lots of couples choose wedding venues on the mountains themselves.  This is one of those stories.

Take Emily and Chris, who planned their  rustic mountain wedding at Keystone Resort's Timber Ridge Lodge.  Timber Ridge is located at the top of North Peak, accessible via two gondolas.  Guests load the first gondola at the River Run Village, then walk across the ski slope to a second gondola that traverses Dercum Mountain to North Peak.  Once at North Peak, guests will walk by the Alpenglow Stube, another event venue here, yet smaller.  Once guests enter Timber Ridge, they witness a spacious mountain lodge atmosphere with cathedral ceilings and a two-story fireplace.

Ceremonies at Timber Ridge have an outdoor wooden deck with magnificent views of the Ten Mile Range and Continental Divide.  Timber Ridge is a magical place to exchange your vows and celebrate with loved ones amidst the majestic Rocky Mountains.  You definitely feel small and are, somehow, just more lovable at altitude.  You can, literally, elevate your wedding experience above all the day-to-day stress and just enjoy a few precious moments with family and friends. 

Emily and Chris kept things simple and minimal since the views are simply stunning.  Over from the Petal and Bean side of things, we provided a mismatched collection of mason jars and vases for the tables at the reception to keep with the rustic, vintage feel that Emily and Chris wanted.

Lining the aisle were simple wildflower clusters attached to each chair.  Paper Antler,  a husband and wife photography duo who state on their website that,

"We understand that every relationship is unique.  We also understand how much time and energy goes into planning a wedding.  So if you want photos that honestly and creatively reflect your personalities, as well as the details and hard work that you put into your day, you’re in good company. 

Like a bad perm, choosing the wrong photographer can leave you feeling saddened and confused.  Unlike a bad perm, you have to live with your wedding photography for the next 60 or so years.  While we may cost a little more than our Great Clips counter-parts, it’s worth the investment.   

Ask anyone with a bad perm."    

The bride commented on their blog posting of this wedding, saying

"Thank you so much Jonny and Michelle. The pictures are everything we could have hoped for and so much more! Everyone who sees them falls in love with your photography. Thanks again. You are the best photographers in all the land."

Martini? Yes, please.  This is certainly one way to get the party started especially at 11,444 feet!  Please remember that if your guests are not used to the altitude  you want to educate them that up here 1 drink is like 2-3 at sea level.  Encourage guests to drink one glass of water per alcohol beverage.  If you add together dehydration from traveling, the dry mountain air, the hot sun and alcohol,  it can give you a headache and induce other altitude-related illnesses.  Please exercise caution when in the mountains, period.  Just be careful kids.  I can't say it enough.

And at the end of the night, after saying good bye to their guests,  Emily and Chris shared a quiet moment together in the gondola.  As wedding days go, they are over before you know it... a total whirl wind of events.  Lucky for them they'll have a lifetime together to relive all the memories from this night.

{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Q & A w/ Sarah + Scott at Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado. Part Two.

This gorgeous set of photos are the final installment of the adventures of Scott and Sarah in our first "One Mile High + Two Mile High" blog series.  We showed their Denver engagement photo session, and the moments leading up to the ceremony in Part One.  Today's blog shows the ceremony, the reception at Timber Ridge (a venue situated at the top of Keystone Resort and is measured at 11,444 feet above sea level), and a Q & A with the newly married couple.  

We appreciate husband and wife photographer team, Michelle and Zach Wear of Revert Photo for sharing these images with us, and now, you.  If you dig their style, please give'em a jingle and be sure to mention the Summit Mountain Weddings blog!

Q.  What was the most memorable moment you had at your wedding?  Or funniest moment?

A.  Its hard to say "best" or most fun.  Seeing my wife in that wedding dress for the first time was great.  Being around so many distant friends on an absolutely perfect day was wonderful.  Dancing with my mother was great.  But the gondola ride with our friends down the mountain to finish the night was magical.

Q.  What would you do differently looking back? Any "hindsight 20/20" advice you have for couples?

A.  I don't think we'd do much differently. We might have allowed for more time to spend with family and friends before and after the day - also don't skimp on food, drinks, or a DJ.  All of these things are necessary for a good party.

{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Sarah + Scott at Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado.  Part Two.  |  photo[revertphoto.com]  Keystone CO wedding photographer, Keystone Wedding Planner, Keystone Florist, Colorado Wedding Blog

Q. What resources, vendors, websites, blogs or magazines did you get inspiration or planning help from?

A.  Sarah looked at a lot of magazines (the Knot, Rocky Mtn Bride, etc.)  We went to wedding shows.  This helped Sarah get a handle of all the possible venues and vendors.  

Then we just talked to people.  We set up meetings - and as they say, you know in about 5 minutes if you like person.  We strayed from every person who seemed like a salesperson.  

To be honest - Dina gave such good advice we followed her lead in alot of ways.  Leon Littlebird was perfect.  Her taste and delivery on flowers and decorations was impeccable.

Q.  What did you wish you'd known about while planning your mountain wedding? 

A.  We first thought a mountain wedding would be too expensive.  After you run the numbers, mountain weddings are very comparable to things in the front range.  In fact, we feel we saved a lot of money for the value.

Q.  Do you think vendors should have a presence on our new wedding blog?  Why and how would it help them? 

A.  I had such great experiences with Leon, Jay Kacik (DJ), you guys [creative flowers inc | petal and bean], Zach + Michelle, and Keystone (Alicia H.) - that any publicity you could give them would be great.  All of them are good people, great at what they do, and aren't trying to stiff bride's and grooms. You guys represent tremendous value and positivity for very stressful times (even if it is your living).

Q.  Do you think a niche wedding site for our area is a good idea?

A.  Yes, in terms of an offsite place, emphasizing wonderful views, that is out of the resort's umbrella.  Our wedding was simply too big to do some of the smaller venues in Summit.

Q.  Were there any DIY projects during the planning of your wedding?  Who did what and how much did it cost (approx.) and how long did it take? Any advice for DIY brides?

A.  We saved a ton of money on invitations, favors, and signage.  Our family loved helping out (no kidding, fed them beer) - it really made them feel a part of things. instead of spending a couple of thousand bucks, we borrowed and made these things for about $50.

Q.  What service is worth it to thrown down the extra money for?

A.  Well since you asked, Sarah still remarks about the flowers. They are in every picture and added a rustic elegance to the ceremony (even through we had to reneg on the initial design). But also, spend money on a great DJ, food, and booze.

Remember, in an effort to penny pinch don't forget a wedding is a party.  Its as much about making sure people have a good time as it is about celebrating your commitment. If you've missed the entire happy "atmosphere" of the day pinching pennies, head to the courthouse instead.

A word from Camko Studios: "This wedding was incredible and the view up atop Keystone mountain as amazing! Lindsay and Douglas was so sweet, they allowed us to freely film anything and everything. Before the Ceremony, we knew that Douglas was very nervous and we keep the camera on him most of the time. Needless to say, we got the footage we needed.  Thank you for watching!"

{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Q&A w/ Kate + Todd // Timber Ridge, Keystone Resort, Keystone, Colorado

0873-082909coultas.jpg

Those wanting a true alpine experience should explore the options of Keystone Resort, specifically Alpenglow Stube and Timber Ridge.  The former is a smaller, intimate setting, where the latter is a grand room connected to an outside deck.  Either location you choose, you'll be treating your guests to two gondola rides on the way to your wedding, and they'll be talking about it for a long time.

This wedding was recently selected as a featured wedding in the Preview Issue of Luxe Mountain Weddings, which focuses on luxury weddings throughout the mountains.  We decided to follow up with this Rocky Mountain bride and groom and asked a few questions about their day.

Q:  What was your favorite / most memorable moment from your wedding?

A: "The whole concept of celebrating our wedding on a mountain top was amazing and incredibly unique. As for a favorite detail there are many to choose from but likely bringing out glow sticks/accessories and colorful boas towards the end of the night was a huge hit with our guests and really took the party to the next level. We got several compliments on this idea and a lot of “I am so stealing that for my wedding” declarations."

Q: What resources / info / people were the most helpful when planning your wedding?

A: "The best part of getting married in Summit County, CO is that there are a few select wedding vendors – meaning they all know each other, respect each other and have worked together before for previous weddings which created an intimate, team feel to the whole wedding planning experience. I loved our vendors and the “team” was headed up by our amazing wedding planner Emily Campbell who was there to see to every detail."

Q. What advice would you give to brides currently planning their mountain wedding?
A: "My advice for brides is to plan every detail ahead of time so that you show up for your wedding/wedding weekend and just have fun. I highly recommend hiring a day-of or weekend-of wedding coordinator to see to all the details so that you – and your family/wedding party – can just enjoy themselves. You should be having fun, not working!"
