[Mountain Town] A Photoblog Tour of Breckenridge, Colorado

The land where the blue river rises is called Breckenridge now.  It's an attractive small mountain town just west of Denver, and is accessible via the Denver International Airport, which makes this gem a real consideration for couples and families planning a destination wedding in the Rocky Mountains.

We have helped guys arrange for the horses to be waiting at the base of the gondola, and we can help arrange for them to transport you through town between venues or lodging choices.  The Breckenridge Stables offers local tours from the Blue River Plaza, near the Breckenridge Resort Chamber's Welcome Center.

Many shops, restaurants, galleries and museums fill the historic downtown area of Breckenridge.  Plan on spending a few hours poking around the different shops and talking to the locals.  You can gain a lot of knowledge quickly by talking to folks in the know.

Off-the-beaten path locations can be found with our expert advice.  Engagement shoots can be an adventure-filled day with activities like cross country skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, and of course, skiing and snowboarding.  Not all photographers are equal on-mountain, so be sure to ask if your photographer can slide and shoot, and if they don't, then just contact us to recommend some that do.

I put this photo of Allaire Timbers on our venues board on Pinterest, and it was very popular!  Lots of brides and grooms are looking for bed and breakfast, lodges and smaller venues that can be used for both lodging, ceremony and wedding reception.

[VENUES] A Sampling of Keystone, Colorado Wedding Properties

There are a cluster of mountain towns that surround Lake Dillon, and if you follow the Snake River inlet, you'll be at Keystone, Colorado.  The dramatic backdrop of fourteen thousand foot peaks, lodgepole pine, and snowmelt creeks provides a special opportunity for a Rocky Mountain wedding.

Couples can choose to rent a private home tucked away from the resort, or you can check out the bigger venues on the mountain and stay near the River Run Village for quick access to the gondola.  

We're busy talking with local wedding professionals and venues, to source all the best vendors to make your destination wedding experience a seamless experience.  Keystone wedding planning has never been easier.  Contact us to help you arrange showings at some of the options around Keystone.

There are few different options in the River Run Village.  You can take over some of the local restaurants and bars, but there is the Warren Station and the Quaking Aspen Amphitheatre, which had snow on it when I popped over earlier this week.
