Outdoor Ceremony at the Vail Wedding Deck
Views of the Gore Range awaited guests after they traveled via gondola to and from Jessica and Coe's Wedding at Vail Mountain and The Sebastian Hotel, images courtesy of Trystan Photography. The Eagle Bahn brings friends and family (and quite a lot of them too, the capacity being approximately 180, with standing room for more). Numerous time slots are available, as brides and grooms rent the outdoor space in 1.5 hour time chunks. That's plenty of time to exchange vows and keep the party moving on to the next stop, the reception.
Reception Dinner at the Sebastian Hotel
Jessica and Coe chose the Sebastian Htoel for the reception dinner, dancing the night away.

As we plan destination weddings in the mountain towns near Breckenridge, Colorado, I notice the small things that couples do, including these details for a wedding at the Bluesky Breckenridge Resort. The groom had collected, cleaned and prepared a box of antlers that were to be used on tables as part of the decor, as well as Dina, the Flower Maven from Petal and Bean putting a few into a large aspen arch on the outside patio for the ceremony. See the photo of antlers below on Instagram.

After a short chairlift ride up the side of a mountain, your guests will walk a short distance to this sign, where they will follow the signs to an overlook in the Vail Valley that is unmatched for mountain top weddings.
The mountains are a sacred place to many people. And to some, it is the place where they want to exchange their vows and move on to the next stage of their life. One magnificent location is called Sapphire Point, and is perched above scenic Lake Dillon on Swan Mountain Road, between Breckenridge and Keystone.
Q. Who would you say was helpful in planning your wedding?
A." I would say that I had a great amount of help from Emily Campbell of Bella Design and Planning. She was instrumental in finding the perfect location for our ceremony and guiding us through the necessary steps to get a park permit for the space and what time would be optimal for photos. She also helped me with finding and scheduling a hair appointment in Breckenridge, and making recommendations for dinner locations after our ceremony."
Q. Why did you choose the Rocky Mountains as your wedding location?
Here we see the Groom taking a moment to himself with the Ten Mile Range as the dramatic mountain range to the south. The Gore Range starts in Frisco and continues north past Silverthorne and goes further west into the Vail Valley. A scenic trail loops around back to the parking lot, is less than a mile long, and is very family friendly.
You can't totally block off access to the trail for your wedding, so be prepared to smile at the folks just on a hike as you have your ceremony. I would think most people would be respectful and keep quiet. It's the critters there you have to worry about. They've been fed regularly and aren't too shy at times, so be on the watch for some unexpected guests at your wedding!
"All of our photos were from Nate Zander - and he did a great job of capturing the day for us."
"I love the photo that we used on our announcement as well as the shot of us with our heads together at the top of the mountain."
Q. Anything you would like to share with brides planning their winter wedding in the mountains?
"Having a fur jacket was a MUST for me and I loved the faux fur one that I found. So many brides wear them for winter wedding and I think they are stunning!"
