A Mountain Destination Wedding in Breckenridge

Gabby & Chris  |  July 17th  |  Breckenridge, Colorado

This is a super sweet mountain wedding from Susannah Storch Photography. The couple is from Chicago, but on a trip to Breckenridge years earlier, they had discussed how one day they wanted to be in Breck with all of their loved ones. This dream came true last July. The couple put together a lot of details playing on their newly shared last name of “key.”

Destination Bachelor Gulch

Lindsay & Charlie  |  July 19th  | Bachelor Gulch, Colorado

From the bride: We choose to get married in Colorado because we wanted to share one our favorite places with our friends and family. We love the mountains and outdoor adventures. Bachelor Gulch created a rustic, elegant, atmosphere that made both spending time outdoors and dressing up for the occasion natural.

Charlie and I exchanged letters prior to first look. It was a great way to reflect on all the excitement and remember the importance of the day. The first look was one of the most unforgettable parts of the day. We ventured to Anderson’s cabin to see each other for the first time in a secluded outdoor setting. It was amazing to see Charlie and take in our wedding day. We played in the Aspen groves and erased our nerves in a place we felt comfortable.

 On the day of the wedding we hiked in the morning, and then began getting ready for the festivities. The girls dined in for lunch while doing hair and makeup (Posh Salon) and the men entertained themselves with Colorado whiskey.

The ceremony was held overlooking the valley. We had family and friends participate by singing, and reading. And instead of a unity candle, we opted for our own personal flavor, a unity cairn. Building a cairn together meant to us that, together we could always find our way.

The reception was filled with trees rented from a local nursery to create an intimate atmosphere. Flicking candles hung from Manzanita centerpieces were reminiscent of fireflies. Orange flowers provided a pop of color to liven everything up.

To kick off the night Charlie and I had secretly taken dancing lessons (T&M Ballroom Dance Studio) and surprised everyone with a choreographed dance to “I can’t take my eyes off of you”. It was certainly an enchanted evening and everyone partied to the very end.

It was a lively night for sure. The band Soul X was phenomenal. One person said he had never seen more people dancing before.

A Fall Mountain Wedding in Aspen

Amanda & Chauncey  |  September 28th  |  Aspen, Colorado

From the bride: The mountains are so beautiful and help set the mood for an extremely special and important day. I am quite traditional and wanted a lot of the traditional aspects of a wedding. Since we had it in the mountains, I wanted a bit of the rustic appeal, but nothing overboard. Because it was a fall wedding, we made sure to have the theme fit the season with a palette of fall colors.

We planned a day wedding with the ceremony and reception on top of the mountain. We followed this with an after party at the hotel. We wanted to make sure we got to spend the entire day with our friends and family as well as be able to cut a rug without any worries about obligations.

The ceremony was on the Aspen Wedding Deck on the top of Aspen Mountain. The views are gorgeous but you could not see them. We literally had rain, hail and a thunder and lightning bolt that hit 30 feet away.

We had to stop the ceremony half way through and run inside to avoid getting soaked any further.

After we ran inside to escape the storm, my husband & I spent 5 minutes collecting ourselves before we went back out to start the ceremony again. Yes, that’s hail in my veil. There may have been a shot of whiskey involved to warm us up, but this was my favorite memory of the ceremony.

We had a good friend be our officiant. He did an amazing job, twice, since we had to start over.

I loved everything except the weather. A few tears were shed, but looking back, it made for a very memorable experience.
