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.

A Powder Day on Peak 6 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort [Video]

Powder Skiing in Breckenridge

It's the last week of the ski season, so that means I'm looking back at one of my favorite clips from this past winter, A Powder Day on Peak 6 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort, a video by Stacy Sanchez. For now, we should all be happy for the snow that we got and the times we had on the mountain. But, we're definitely looking forward to next season already. There are so many lines just waiting for us to come back. There are many lifetimes of adventures at the world-class ski areas. And soon it will be hiking and biking season in the high hills.

Summer Weddings in the Colorado Mountains

Many say that you come for the winters and stay for the summers, and the cliche is true. The warmer, not-so-snowy months above 10,000 feet are downright glorious. Hot, sunny days, and afternoon thunderstorms are a welcome change to frigid winds and cold snow. Gardeners attempt to grow things in the few short weeks, and the tourists come back to explore all the mountains have to offer, besides skiing. One of those things includes having a wedding.

Bring the fam and invite the friends to join you for a few stellar days for a Breckenridge wedding adventure. There are no guarantees that it won't rain on your day, in fact, I'll be the first to tell you that it probably will rain. At some point. But, it usually blows out pretty quickly, so just have a back up plan and don't overthink it. Please contact us to learn more about how our team can help you save time and money with a custom wedding package that's right for you.

Mountain Town: Breckenridge, Colorado [Video]

Mountain-Town-Breckenridge-Colorado.jpg

One of my goals with starting Summit Mountain Weddings was to share videos about the fabulous places, including my home, Mountain Town: Breckenridge, Colorado, which I made this video to show you a glimpse of what our Victorian mining abode is like. The Utes called this place home for many thousands of years, but when gold was mentioned at a bar in Kansas, the gold rush was on. Miners staked claims in the valleys and one even found the biggest chunk of gold ever found in Colorado, Tom's Baby. The downtown area is a historic set of buildings, while the ski runs of the Breckenridge Ski Resort loom over town. Chairlifts and the Breck Connect Gondola stretch from the valley floor to Peaks 8 and 9, eventually connecting with the highest chairlift in North America, the Imperial Chair. This flying couch brings you steps away from the summit of Peak 8.

Breckenridge is perfect for outdoor lovers, bridging the gap between posh mountain living and world-class skiing. Ask us about the many private luxury homes that scatter the hillsides, as well as non-traditional venues and outdoor spaces. We work with many vendors, venues and services to create custom wedding packages that end up saving you time and money. Contact us to learn more!

2015 International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado [Video]

One of my favorite events, the 2015 International Snow Sculpting Championships in Breckenridge, Colorado just happened. If you visit Breck in the next week or so, they'll still be up. Well, not all of them. One of them has already toppled over. These works of temporary snow art are finite in their existence, being stressed by wind, the weight of the snow and the sun. I love seeing the finished snow sculptures, and the kid's interactive piece is always a hit, but I've grown to appreciate the skill and teamwork that's required to bring these dreams to life. It makes me of how we are a team, and when working with brides, planners and their vendor teams, we also bring visions to life. We help brides live their dreams planning a wedding in the mountains. It's not easy, it's not done overnight, but look what you can create when you put some time and energy into creating something beautiful.

Videos by Stacy Sanchez. See photos here.

 

Here's the teaser video I shot before the snow sculpting teams had arrived. It also shows a glimpse of what summer offers, the Blue River next to the Riverwalk Center, and a memorial to the 10th Mountain Division, the Soldiers of the Summit who fought in WWII. These brave men were ... "originally constituted as a unique mountain warfare unit, the division was the only unit of its size in the U.S. Army to specialize in fighting in mountainous and arctic conditions."

Please contact us with any questions about the winter and summer events that happen in Breckenridge and the nearby mountain towns of Frisco, Copper Mountain, Dillon, Keystone, Silverthorne, Vail and Beaver Creek. We can help you figure out when there will be live music, farmer's markets and more. We understand that all of this adds up to your overall wedding week experience for your family and friends.

 

Epic Sunset in Breckenridge, Colorado

The team at the shop has been busy with winter weddings, helping photographers find the Ice Castles for photo shoots and still working on getting to all those images of weddings submitted here. In the meantime, I wanted to share this epic sunset in Breckenridge, Colorado. Right outside the window of the barn is the best office view in the whole world.
