Vendors + Map + Forum + Social = Future weddings in #sumco

What's #sumco mean?  We'll get to that in a minute.  We are happy to explain the options of this new site for you as an introduction to Summit Mountain Weddings.  We have a great vendor planning page, that shows you all the wonderful options that are available for you to meet your dream team.

We will share descriptions, contact info, social media links, and provide a place for reviews.  Each vendor will have a custom map placement for quick and easy to find reference.

Take it from a local delivery expert, who knows that Google maps can be wrong.  So, we've decided to painstakingly verify that all locations on our map are up-to-date and correct.

Vendor page for Summit Mountain Weddings was envisioned by Stacy Sanchez of Creative Flowers Inc | Petal and Bean in Breckenridge, Colorado.

We know how important it is to arrive at the correct location, on time, with your cargo intact.  Try delivering delicate flowers in the hot summer sun, driving on four wheel drive mining roads to reach the ceremony location.

Click on the map image on the right side bar and you'll see the start of a what will become the go-to-map for this area.

Want to ask a question about your wedding coming up?  Put it out there, and other brides, vendors and helpful locals will jump in and help out with some sage advice.

Forum for Summit Mountain Weddings is powered by local input and knowledge!

We're excited about all the possibilities from this site!  Contact us if you think we'd have something worth blogging about and sharing with everyone!

Please contact us if you think you have what it takes to be called a Summit Wedding Pro.  If so, we'd like to talk with you!  In the meantime, check back to see what's going on in the forum, or watch or updates on Facebook and Twitter.

And in case you're still wondering what the #sumco in the title is about, the short answer is it's a hashtag.  It makes for easy searching on Twitter.  Any tweets about Summit County can be tagged with the #sumco hashtag.

I'll be sharing tips on Twitter and Facebook too, and how it's used in weddings now, and what you can do to stay up to date on all the latest online tools.

Thanks everyone for your support and great feedback as this site was developed, you know who you are!!
