Today's photos are of Natalie + Chris: Colorado Wedding at the Black Canyon Inn, with images courtesy of Mollie Tobias Photography. We are working on adding a select group of mountain towns outside of Summit County and the Vail Valley, as they too need help exposing all the options available. I recently became aware of a network of vendors in the Roaring Fork Valley / Glenwood Springs area that focus on weddings near the Colorado River. Send us a message if you need assistance in that area. We love connecting qualified venues and vendors with couples needing help.

Rocky Mountain Wedding Venues

Brides and grooms from the front range looking to find a location in Estes Park might consider this location. There are a few others in the area, but most mountain venues book up quickly. If you need help finding an all-inclusive package for your wedding, elopement or vow renewal, please contact us to learn more. Thanks!

ALBUM STORY

When they first met Chris lived in North Carolina and Natalie had lived in Texas her whole life.

When Chris moved to Virginia, Natalie moved to Virginia as well so that they could get engaged and be married – and eventually Chris did get around to popping the question.

While they were planning the wedding they realized that they had friends and family in Texas, North Carolina, Virginia, and Alaska. So they did the only reasonable thing and got married in Colorado.

I, for one, am glad that they did. The Black Canyon Inn and Twin Owls Steakhouse was the perfect backdrop for their Fall destination wedding. Natalie put a lot of time and effort into the details of her wedding - from the mini chapsticks for guests who weren't accustomed to the dry mountain air to coffee, tea, and hot cocoa favors. Her creativity was rounded out by a great team of vendors who gave her exactly the wedding she had dreamed of.

Styled Shoot in Breckenridge, Colorado: Behind the Scenes [Video]

Styled-Shoot-in-Breckenridge-Colorado-Behind-the-Scenes-Video-e1434822037886.jpg

 

Breckenridge Wedding Venue

In today's post you see a Styled Shoot in Breckenridge, Colorado, with Behind the Scenes in a Video that I shot. I see lots of styled shoots on other wedding blogs, and I felt like some of the off-the-beaten path places in Breck needed the spotlight. That's what makes this blog different. These places get overlooked from the bigger, regional magazines and websites. This is our backyard and we know it better than any other website out there. Please contact us to learn more more about creating a custom wedding package for a destination wedding, elopement, engagement photo session or vow renewal. We're all about the mountain love in all its forms and stages.

New Media Marketing for Colorado Wedding Professionals

This video was all created via mobile, and I help locals with New Media Marketing for Colorado Wedding Professionals. As the former owner of Petal and Bean, one of the contributors to the styled shoot, I helped my wife, Dina with numerous weddings over the last 10 years. I took many many photos of bridal bouquets, and learned by doing. I want to help others learn how to create an effective online presence that helps today's brides and grooms in a modern blog and marketplace. Vendors and venues, please contact me with any questions you have, including how to set up a styled shoot at your venue. We plan on doing more of these, so please be in touch with your ideas!

Planning an elopement from around the world was easy for Camilla and Niklas, as they found us online, searching for how to book a dogsled tour for their destination wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  The couple from Sweden asked us to help them arrange a photographer, the bridal bouquet and boutonierre, the officiant, the transportation and the dog sled.  

We met with the vendors at the barn a few days before the wedding, and made sure everything was set.  Details were worked out and all the ceremony planning was finalized.

There are many operators that offer snowmobiling, skiing, dog sledding and winter activities.  As a longtime Florist and Breckenridge wedding planner specializing in adventure weddings, we understand the nature of the mountains, how harsh the elements can be, and the need to secure quality services from reliable vendors that will see your vision through.

We are here to help you put all the pieces together to create fun-filled experiences that you'll want to remember for the rest of your lives.  How do you do that, you ask?  Well, for starters, you can sign up for one of our wedding planning packages that will help you source all the vendors you need, book the activities you want to do, and secure rental items you don't need to buy. 

{Real Mountain Wedding} Camilla + Niklas: Dog Sled Adventure Wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado.  |  Photo courtesy of StudioKivaWedding.com.

You can choose between photo or video production packages, or both.  We suggest both.  We love still images, but video captures longer moments that still images just can't.  I've noticed that more than one bride saying they wish they had a video of the day, to see who all was there, and to see moments from the day.  The day will go fast, so make sure you're set up to capture it and enjoy for years to come through photos, videos and most importantly, the stories your guests will tell.  

Or, as in this case, no guests will tell, but instead have fun photos and video of your adventure wedding in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  Check back later for the video of this dogsled winter elopement in Breckenridge

Let's be honest here.  Weddings require planning, and planning means time.  Even elopements.  We  want to make this experience fun, easy and stress free for you. Each of our adventure wedding experiences are hand crafted by local seasoned professionals. From the handmade cake, to the handmade bouquet, each piece of your day is put together carefully, as we all understand how important quality is to you.  

When you work with a longtime local who knows the venues, vendors and options up here, we pretty much take all the guess work out of the planning details for you.  We guide you and find out who you are as a couple and will find a way to create a wedding that is unique to the two of you.  Ask yourself, if you were a cake topper as a couple, what would it look like?
