{ REAL MOUNTAIN WEDDING } Jody + Patrick: Maggie Pond Ceremony with Reception at the Main St. Station in Breckenridge, Colorado

Jody and Patrick, from the Denver area, decided to marry at a spot overlooking the Maggie Pond at the base of peak 9 at the Breckenridge Ski Resort.  A short walk from this area brings you to the Quicksilver chairlift, or into town for shopping and exploring.  A tent protected the guests from any surprise elements that come from the sky.

Rose petals were scattered by the florist, as these two gentlemen take in the moment and wait patiently for the ceremony to begin.  Make sure to check with your venue to see if rose petals are allowed, as certain properties don't allow any non-native plant materials to be scattered on the premises.

Rituals and traditions play a part in today's ceremonies, but couples are personalizing their day, and that includes who's involved.  One trend we adore is how couples have also been including their furry friends more and more in their gatherings, as they are dearly  beloved family members who would be sorely missed if not present.

Ceremony arrangements can be repurposed and brought inside to decorate the reception area.  Ask your florist how to stretch your dollars and use items throughout the event as it moves from location to location.  Discuss who will move the arrangements as well, as ceremony and reception venues aren't always right next to each other, such as the case with this real Breckenridge wedding.

Jody holds her bouquet up high as Patrick smiles.  The couple will join the bridal party for a few moments around the pond as guests refresh themselves before heading into the Hyatt Main Street Station, operated by Resortquest.

I always want to taste the cake as I put these photos up.  Is that so bad?  I just wonder what flavor is under that icing and decor...
