Intimate Breckenridge Wedding // Sapphire Point Alpine Villa Wedding // Tyler & Danielle
When we met Danielle & Tyler for their engagement photos, we knew these adventurous souls would have an incredible wedding. The day consisted of good friends all gathered in one house for a weekend, a beautiful landscape, and a big bonfire. This is everything we love about photographing weddings. Danielle & Tyler are two people who feel so much more like close friends than clients. Their small wedding at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, Colorado held a spirit of adventure that was felt by everyone in attendance. These two kept things simple in the best way, focusing on the stuff that really matters. They decided to forego the over-the-top decorations and spend the money on hosting all 40+ guests in one huge house for the weekend. The wedding was intimate and beautiful and felt so natural in its intention.
After getting ready, the entire wedding party rode up the ski lift at Breckenridge to take photos at the top of the mountain. The Colorado landscape was windy and beautiful and we told lots of jokes and had a good time celebrating Danielle & Tyler. These two are surrounded by a rowdy & passionate group of friends who would clearly do anything to support Danielle & Tyler. Beers were shared and photos were taken and we almost got stuck at the top of the lift because things took a little longer than anticipated and the lifts were closing soon. But what's a good adventure without some kind of risk?
The ceremony was perfect and the rolling peaks faded in the hazy sunset light while Danielle & Tyler said their vows. After the ceremony, the excitement melted into deep gratitude for everything that had just occurred. We admired the landscape and talked about marriage and basked in the warmth of the setting sun.
There is so much more I could write about these two, how much we are inspired by them and how much we are jealous of their honeymoon plans to go to Everest Base Camp, but I'll leave you with these photos to tell the rest of their story.
Danielle & Tyler, the deepest congratulations to you two. I foresee many adventures between the four of us in the very near future.
