Tanille and Larry’s Breckenridge, Colorado Wedding

Location: Sapphire Point, Breckenridge, Colorado

Reception Venue: Double Tree, Breckenridge

Tanille and Larry picked Sapphire Point in Breckenridge for their May wedding because of the spectacular views of snow capped mountains. Weather in May can be a little unpredictable, but luckily a winter storm cleared in time to give us some amazing photo opportunities.

Being a huge Star Wars fan, Tanille added some subtle but special touches like lightsaber bouquets for the bridesmaids and R2-D2 socks for the groomsmen for this May the Fourth be with you wedding. Anyone who knows me even a little, knows that I am also a massive Star Wars fan and definitely approved of those details. Continue reading »

Jeff and Jacqueline’s Sapphire Point Wedding

Location: Sapphire Point, Breckenridge, Colorado

Jeff and Jacqueline came here from Alabama to have and amazing mountain elopement ceremony at the Sapphire Point overlook in Breckenridge, Colorado. It was just me and the two of them for the ceremony and the photos afterward. Incidentally, did you know that Colorado is one of only a handful of states that allows couple to self solemnize their marriage without a third party officiant? It’s one of the reasons Colorado is so popular for elopements. 

One of my favorite moments from the wedding is when a chipmunk decided to pop over and inspect the bride’s bouquet. Continue reading »

Lizzy and Ben’s Crested Butte Wedding

Location: Mountain Wedding Garden, Crested Butte, Colorado

Coordinator: Krysta with Elevation Weddings and Events

Photo Booth: Reel Mobile Photos

I met Lizzy and Ben about a year before their wedding when I did their engagement photos in Breckenridge. It gave us a lot of time to plan before their summer wedding in Crested Butte, Colorado. 
Crested Butte is one of the most beautiful towns in all of Colorado (and possibly all of the US. One of my favorite things about this wedding was that rain storms were coming and going throughout the day. As Coloradans, they knew not to worry because storms blow in and out quickly. It gave us the best of both worlds: clear skies for their ceremony and beautiful clouds for sunset photos afterwards. Continue reading »

Chelsea and Andrew’s Breckenridge Colorado Wedding

Location: Private Home in Breckenridge

Catering: Food Hedz

Chelsea and Andrew rented a spacious home in the Shock Hill neighborhood of Breckenridge Colorado. The view from the deck where they held their ceremony was amazing. The aspen trees surrounding their ceremony site were in full color. One of the highlights of the day was when a fox walked over to see their ceremony. My other favorite aspect of their wedding was when they walked down the front steps of the home while the wedding party was blowing bubbles.

Kim and Joe’s Breckenridge Wedding

Location: The Lodge at Breckenridge

Officiant: Gretchen Abernathy

Kim and Joe picked the perfect time of year for a wedding at the lodge at Breckenridge. The fall colors were really peaking, and the views from the lodge are really impressive in the fall. One of my favorite things about this wedding is when the mountain bikers showed up in the middle of doing the formal portraits, which ended up being a real “Colorado” moment.  Continue reading »
