I'm so glad you are here to check out some recent work. I'm a Colorado wedding photographer that shoots all around the country. The blog is filled with full wedding and portrait sessions, and includes weddings planning tips and inspiration.
Christine and Slater had a romantic Sapphire Point Overlook wedding ceremony before immediate family and friends just north of Breckenridge, Colorado. It was an unusually warm late fall day, as guests had views of the Rocky Mountains in the distance over Lake Dillon.
Their whole day was intentional and sweet. The pair got ready at an airbnb in Breckenridge (which is a great small mountain town to have an intimate AirBnb wedding!) and about 30 of their guests met them at the beautiful Sapphire Point Overlook. This wedding spot is a very popular location for intimate wedding ceremonies in Colorado. It is accessible, beautiful, and affordable! That could be why I added it to my list of best small wedding venues in Colorado!
