Greg and Kelsey’s Breckenridge Wedding

120DSC_0110Greg and Kelsey’s big day started under clear blue skies in downtown Breckenridge.  There was a crispness in the air as the first day of autumn was only a couple days away.  Kelsey was preparing for the day with the help of her bridesmaids and family while Greg and the groomsmen were relaxing watching college football one floor below at the BlueSky Resort.

As Kelsey added her final touches to hair and makeup, Greg made his way down to a remote path at the base of Peak 9 of Breckenridge, where he anxiously waited to get the first glimpse of his beautiful bride.  After a few quiet moments together, they were joined by their bridal party and family for pictures.  The energy and love Greg and Kelsey share fed the energy of everyone around them.  Never before, did I have more fun photographing the family portion.  Usually, those images are very traditional and most people are just trying to get through them.  Greg and Kelsey’s families had so much fun during this time, goofing around with each other.  They made for some great, unique family portraits.

After pictures, family and friends had time to relax and get settled in their seats while Greg and Kelsey did final touches before they walked down the aisle. Kelsey and her bridesmaids, in relaxed fashion, had a champagne toast in their hotel room before making their way down.

The ceremony took place on a beautiful afternoon just on the BlueSky Resort terrace.

During the ceremony, Greg and Kelsey placed a bottle of wine into a wine box handmade by Kelsey’s father with love letters that they had written to each other. They promised to create a tradition to open the wine box on every anniversary and read the previous year’s love letters while they share a new bottle of wine.

After Greg and Kelsey had their first kiss as a married couple, they made their way down the aisle to cheers from their family and guests and to cocktail hour, where they spent time saying hello to guests and taking a few family pictures.

After a buffet dinner with wonderful food, a heartwarming toast from Kelsey’s sister, and a memorable and humorous toast from the best man; Kelsey and Greg made their way to cut the cake and open the dance floor. Kelsey and Greg made the most of this time dancing and spending time with friends and family.

At the end of the night, Greg and Kelsey made their way out of the reception hall through a sparkler exit held by all the attendees.  It was a great end to a perfect day.
