As a born and raised Vail local, back when it was a sleepy ski town not many had heard of, those who did frequent it did so for the winters. The snow, the skiing, the mountains. But growing up, I quickly learned that Summers are the jewel in the Colorado crown! I often tell people you come for the winter, but stay because of the Summer. Emerald mountains, bluebird skies and wildflowers galore- rafting, hiking, biking, camping- its an outdoor lovers paradise. And as the years have gone one, that secret has slowly been let out, especially in the wedding industry. What could be more stunning than getting married on top of a mountain in the Vail Valley with the Gore Range as your view! Summer has definitely become wedding season.
However, there are those snow loving and adventurous couples who know that WINTER WEDDINGS are actually the best kept secret in Colorado! Enjoying a romantic fire pit in the evening, spending a day celebrating on powdery runs with your wedding party, and then on the day of? Romantic candles, vintage fur, red wine and dancing, all surrounded by the twinkle of the holidays.
We love the creativity, adventure and memories that are created when we help our winter brides create their vision of their dream day.
Kristen and Michael were married at the Ritz Carlton in Bachelor Gulch two week before Christmas and it as the perfect elegant winter wedding with all the right personal touches.
