Twee & John | February 16th

From the photographer, Mark Creery Photography:  Twee and John had a small and heart-felt wedding at Sapphire Point overlooking a frozen Lake Dillon and the mountains of Breckenridge Ski Resort. After several days of fog and snow, they had perfect February weather and were able to have a fun day that reflected their true personalities. After their morning wedding they decided to do what they loved doing together – hitting the slopes for some snowboarding. Twee caught lots of attention in her cheetah print shrug along with her dress, which covered almost her entire board and collected many pounds of snow and ice along the way. That didn’t stop her from shredding up the slopes with her new hubbie. With gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and the sun shining, it was an idyllic scene for some adventurous wedding photos.

Kristen & Patrick | August 20th | Breckenridge, Colorado

From the bride:
We got married outside with all the beautiful natural scenery around us. The weather was perfect and wildflowers were everywhere. Prior to the ceremony, there was a hummingbird just sitting in the flowerbeds, and a fox that ran up the mountains. It was an amazing week leading up to the wedding… the day of the wedding was like a fairytale.  If we had to do it all over again, I would not change anything.

Prior to any wedding planning we sat down and asked ourselves what we wanted out of this wedding. The adjectives that we came up with: casual, different, festive feast, seasonal organic, natural and organic, elegant, high-energy, cozy, warmth, spicy, timeless, beautiful, bold. For us, these adjectives described Breckenridge. Plus, we both love the outdoors and we wanted to incorporate that into our wedding. Everything for the wedding was completed two weeks before the big day.  When we arrived in Breckenridge, all we had to do was the small final touches which made for an amazingly relaxing week.I wore my mothers wedding dress (which I did not have to alter, I just had to buy 5 inch shoes so it did not drag).

All the flowers in the wedding looked like you had picked them out of a field (that was one of my requests that I wanted them to look natural, organic and messy). The bridesmaid bouquets had brighter flowers than my bouquet, which looked awesome.

My mum and dad walked me down the aisle together. Everything just seemed to fit perfectly.  I was not nervous, but excited and ready to celebrate.

I changed into a really cute short dress for the reception.The floral centerpieces were all different types of blue and clear bottles we had collected.

I have to say that planning a destination wedding from Cleveland, Ohio was easier than I had imagined. I really had to trust people based on phone calls and emails, if I didn’t get a good vibe from the vendor I kept on looking until I did. I wanted to make sure that they wanted to be part of our wedding day and not do the job because it makes them money.
