Venue: Beaver Creek Chapel

Kristine and Alan planned an intimate winter wedding in Beaver Creek Colorado with close family and friends. I think winter weddings in Colorado are some of my favorite to photograph.

Venue and Catering: Westin Riverfront Resort in Beaver Creek, Colorado

Hair and Makeup: Spa Anjali

Chad and Michelle are huge cyclists, so they decided to have a bike themed fall wedding in Beaver Creek. The day was a great reflection of their personalities.

Afterwards I met Michelle at Spa Anjali for hair and makeup. They did most of the decorations and setup the photo book themselves. One of the highlights was when they did their grand entrance on a bicycle weaving in and out of the tables.

Lionscrest is a beautiful and elegant venue, and the couple clearly put a lot of thought into making guests feel welcome and comfortable with a family style meal of steak and salmon. After the wedding, they were off to honeymoon in Europe visiting Croatia, Montenego, Solvenia and Italy.

Jeff and Michelle are a really fun couple. I created their engagement photos last fall here in Breckenridge. They hired me almost a year before their wedding and it has been a lot of fun being involved in their planning process. I really enjoy photographing local weddings. As much as I love destination weddings, it is great being able to work with local vendors and venues that I consider friends.

Chris and Angie’s Breckenridge Ski Wedding



Location: Breckenridge Ski Area

Venue: Mountain Thunder Lodge

 

Chris and Angie had a really fun idea for a wedding: ski down from the top of Breckenridge Ski Area together to their ceremony at Mountain Thunder Lodge. Finding a photographer who was willing and able to go on that adventure with them could have been a challenge, so I am really glad they gave me a call.
