Surrounded by Nature

Kiley & Andy | August 5th | Breckenridge, Colorado

At 10,010 feet, surrounded by the grandeur of the Ten Mile Range, Kiley & Andy recited their vows in an intimate ceremony on the deck of Sevens at Peak 7.  The beautiful backdrop and emotional moments were all lovingly captured by Jason + Gina Wedding Photographers.

From the bride:
Breckenridge is amazing. The town itself has a way of making you feel like you’re in another world and letting you escape.   Its so beautiful in both summer and winter and we both knew our families would have lots of activities to choose from. We like Breckenridge because it has an upscale feel but is still very relaxed and casual.  We knew this had to be the spot we tied the knot!

We decided to make this a weeklong vacation for both our families. We rented a 6 bedroom majestic mansion on the mountain and stuck both our families in the house for the week!  The big surprise was that everyone got along amazingly and really enjoyed the company.  Everyone got to know each other a little bit more and by the end of the week we were one big happy family!

Our first look was probably the most memorable moment. Leading up to this moment we’d been surrounded by family and little kids and lots of activity. For the whole previous week we didn’t have any alone time.  Our amazing photographers helped us find a cool, shady spot in the tall pines just off the slopes that was perfect. I snuck up on Andy over logs and brush and jumped on him! When he turned around and kissed me I was immediately overwhelmed with happiness and started crying. Although Jason and Gina were there taking shots we really felt totally alone and it was such a wonderful moment, our first one together, just us in quite a while.

The day of our wedding it was a perfect summer day in the Rockies; the sun was shining and it was mid 70’s with just a slight breeze.  The deck had the most beautiful view overlooking the town of Breckenridge with snow capped peaks in the distance and plenty of space to view the deep Colorado blue skies.  Being that the majority of our guests were from the East Coast this was quite a site for them to see.  It could not have been more spectacular.

The ceremony so much more than I expected. I found it interesting how I was surrounded by the most important people in my life and they all seem to disappear when I saw Andy waiting for me at the end of the isle.  Marrying him in that setting was truly the most memorable experience of my life.  I thought I had all my tears out during our first look but when we exchanged rings I couldn’t help it. I was so overcome with joy and thankfulness that God brought me to this moment with Andy. I felt and still feel unbelievably blessed.

Our first dance was to One Republic’s “Good Life” and again, the rest of the world disappeared to me as we danced around the room. I hadn’t ever seen such a huge and lasting smile on my husband’s face and it was wonderful. From that point on I didn’t stop dancing all night.
