If you’ve been thinking about planning a mountain wedding, but not sure that the full on adventure wedding style is for you, you’ve got to check this out.
One of the best things about weddings in Colorado is that there are some truly incredible venues right in the mountains so you can get stunning photos–without the hiking boots! (Keep scrolling to see more of one of my favorites!).
Which leads me to:
Three reasons why you should have a mountain wedding:
- Soak in the beauty and peace of nature: There’s no vibes like it. Stepping out into the crisp air, surrounded by the wind in the trees and mountains as far as your eyes can see? It’s such an incredible and grounding experience–perfect for starting this next phase of your beautiful journey together.
- Create a memorable experience–for you AND your guests: unless all your guests live in the mountains (statistically unlikely), getting away into the mountains creates a memorable experience, out of the ordinary, that will stick with them. It’s such a unique time to have people from so many different areas of your life, all in one spot. The added layer of unique and memorable location crystallizes it in time even more!
- Get stunning wedding photos: with a venue right in the mountains, we can create stunning and heart-felt wedding photos together, without having to hike for hours or take you away from celebrating with your people for long. Just enough time for you and your love to step away, take some intentional time to enjoy being together on your wedding day and soaking in the joy, while we create magical images you’ll look back on for years to come.
To give you some inspiration, here are some favorites from a wedding at Northstar Gatherings, located in Idaho Springs, Colorado. Side note: stepping out of the car upon arrival at this venue, I was struck with how quiet it was outside. It was one of the most peaceful and magical settings I’ve ever experienced!
