Breckenridge Wedding Photography
Today's post is all about Breckenridge Wedding Dreams Come True, a Testimonial, with images courtesy of Leisa Gibson Photography. This is a blog post that shares the thanks from a happy bride that we helped plan her Breckenridge wedding. Christie and Jeff chose us to help them put together a fun day, filled with snow, family and love. They carefully walked down the path to an overlook at Sapphire Point. If you've never heard of this spot, it's one of the most popular outdoor ceremony spots in Summit County. But, it does come with some risk, as there isn't any back up building nearby. Most couples brave the elements and embrace the uncertainty and go for it anyway. Clouds look great in pics, by the way, so don't let a few of those stop you. And, you usually get enough of a window that a fast-moving storm will blow through and you can have your ceremony still. That kind of stuff is what we'll talk you through and help you think about.
Custom Breckenridge Wedding Packages
We have put together some ideas for destination weddings, elopements and vow renewals. It could be just the two of you, or it could be a smaller group than a big, traditional wedding that you're used to. We like to do it different here in the mountains, and if you're open to standing in the blowing wind, amongst trees and family, then we can talk and put together an unforgettable day. We know lots of venues, vendors and activities that will keep your guests talking for years.
It's quite convenient for families to meet here in the Rockies, with Denver International Airport being less than two hours away. Weekends and holidays bring crowds, and delayed travel times, but that's ok, because if you've never driven I-70, it's beautiful the whole way. If you gotta get stuck on a highway, it might as well be that one! Enough from me. Please click here to be in touch and start planning your dream. Thanks for stopping by and reading our Breckenridge wedding blog!
From the couple:
Dina, We cannot thank you enough for all you did for us for our wedding. It was absolutely magical!! Everything, and I mean everything, turned out just as we envisioned it would be!! The weather was perfect, Sapphire Point was amazing (even Jeff was so happy we decided to do it there), the tourists were respectful, Tonda did an exceptional job with my hair and makeup, Breck Hair Salon made me feel like a princess, Leslie did a great job with our ceremony and we loved how she included our boys during the ceremony, Leisa was just phenomenal and laid back and we can not wait to see her photos, and my flowers….oh my heavens, Petal and Bean made my bouquet dreams come true!! They were just stunning and exactly what I wanted. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our Colorado wedding could not have been more perfect. You all will hold a special place in our hearts, and one day we hope to call Colorado “home”.
Christie and Jeff Mason
Brian Kraft captured some incredible images of this gorgeous couple, Cori and Chris who tied the knot at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge. This wedding wasn't the 100+ guests that are hosted at some of the larger venues in our area. It was just Cori and Chris's parents who witnessed them say their vows on top of one of Summit County's most magnificent vistas. Cori and Chris chose this perfect spot to say "I do" and then celebrate with friends and family in Denver. Dina from Petal and Bean did the wedding flowers and planning for this small and sweet affair.
Photographer Brian Kraft took them to Lake Dillon to grab some shots on the shoreline before heading up to Sapphire Point.
Just the couple's parents came along for the nuptials.
Once you take the short walk to the point, you can see panoramic views of Dillion Reservoir and the Ten Mile Range. Sapphire Point is easily accessible for wedding guests along Swan Mountain Road between Breckenridge and Keystone.

Meghan and Travis were married at a rocky outcrop that you can see from across the lake looking east as you come around on highway 9 heading south towards Breckenridge. I never really looked for it before, but noticed it right away when I focused on it. It's a steep overlook that has views that drop away at your feet and lay out the Ten Mile and Gore ranges before you. It's no wonder why so many folks choose to have their sacred moment here and not inside somewhere.
Kay writes on her blog... "I always love Sapphire Point Weddings! Maybe because you can always guarantee amazing views - maybe because the Dillon Ranger District limits guests to 35 people. Maybe because I happened upon Christa and Cole's elopement there 4 years ago on a magical December afternoon. Maybe because brides getting married at Sapphire Point must be outdoorsy and willing to brave the elements, no matter what time of year!"
"My own wedding was scheduled there 15 years ago, but we moved inside at the last minute to accomodate both of Kirk's grandmas and the 6 inches of new snow! We did get to Sapphire Point for the toast after the ceremony. And since then I have photographed dozens of weddings there and many, many portrait sesssions."
"Meghan and Travis came from Missouri to get married with just family members and it was an amazing day and beautiful ceremony!" >> Click here to view the slideshow
"I love this photo and this 'moment in time' that I caught while Travis was waiting at the overlook and ceremony spot for his beautiful bride, Meghan. I was 30 feet away, and could see her walking down, but he was out of sight... he kept leaning to see if he could catch a peek... LOVE this moment when the groom sees his bride for the first time, and Travis didn't disappoint me!"
Ask us how to help you plan all the details for your mountain wedding, including using Sapphire Point as an outdoor winter wedding ceremony location. Yes, that's right, go for it. It could be a blizzard, or it could be the most beautiful blue skies you've ever seen on a winter day. You never know, but you'll have your closest friends and family with you. Or not. We love when it's a super small, intimate event that is not a huge ordeal. Those events tend to be more flexible and can adjust on the fly
If you look across the valley in the photo above, you'll notice a nice patch of yellow Aspen trees on the lower slopes of Peak one. Check back for more real weddings, go to our forum to ask questions, or contact us today to start getting things done!
