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 »

Kerrie and Paul’s Breckenridge, Colorado Wedding

Location: Sapphire Point, Breckenridge, Colorado
Reception: Hearthstone Restaurant, Breckenridge, Colorado
Floral Arrangements: Petal & Bean, Breckenridge, Colorado
Lodging: Allaire Timbers Inn, Breckenridge, Colorado

Paul and Kerry are a Chief Warrant Officer and Captain in the Army respectively.  They called me a few months ago while stationed in Germany about photographing their destination wedding in Breckenridge, Colorado. Using tools like Skype makes planning a destination wedding from the other side of the world surprisingly simple.  Despite having a smaller wedding, they still had family members representing the Marines, Air Force, Army, and Navy attend their wedding here in Breckenridge.
After the ceremony at Sapphire Point overlooking Lake Dillon and the Ten Mile Range, we spent and hour photographing at some of my favorite spots in and around Breckenridge.  Afterwards they had dinner with the guests at the Hearthstone Restaurant, and followed up with Horseback riding at Breckenridge Stables the next day.
