Alison + Aaron: Fall Breckenridge Wedding at the Lodge and Spa

Fall Wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado

Today's post is all about Alison + Aaron: Fall Breckenridge Wedding at the Lodge and Spa with images courtesy of Timothy Faust Photography. We have worked with Tim over the years when we owned Petal and Bean, and it's no surprise to find his images on our blog. He does great work, and we're happy to share these images with you. You won't be disappointed in your images if you get to work with Tim. And, he's a Breck local, so he knows the best spots to catch the light around town. That's the beauty of working with locals. But, any good photographer will be able to anticipate light and make the best of what situation and setting they're in. That's what makes them professional. Ask us about creating a package with Tim or another local Summit County photographer.

ALBUM STORY

I have known Alison for almost ten years. She had worked for the American Cancer Society which I volunteered to photograph their Hope on the Slopes Fundraiser in Breckenridge, Colorado for several years. I was delighted when she asked me to photographer her wedding this year. Alison and Aaron had a beautiful fall wedding on the back deck of the Lodge at Breckenridge overlooking the Ten Mile Range and Bald mountain. It was a gorgeous place for all the guests to watch the sunset from.

Located on a cliff side, this facility offers on site lodging, ceremony and reception options. Lots of couples choose the lodge because of its large deck overlooking the Blue River Valley, with panoramic views of the Ten Mile range and the Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Q.  Ski or snowboard? What do you do in the summertime for fun?

A. In the winter I love to snowboard and snowmobile and in the summer camping and hiking keep me occupied.  I love Colorado in the fact that there is so much to do here both winter and summer.  When we go camping we pull out our map and pick a desolate spot and that is what makes the trip for me, being in the woods surrounding by nothing but nature.

Q. Top 3 family-friendly hikes for families visiting for the wedding?

A. Mohawk Lakes, Bankers Tank and the drive to the top of Boreas Pass, as the wild flowers there are amazing.  Fall hiking by the Country Boy Mine is the best for fall foliage.

Q. What’s an important factor that couples don’t want to overlook?

A. Things start to add up and sooner than later you will be looking at your budget, saying “how did we end up here, over budget.”  Make a list of your most important things and then work your way down from there, so that you can cost cut on the things that are not ‘As Important’ as the things that are.
