Breckenridge Adventure Wedding Elopement

Growing up, some of my favorite memories were from Summit County, so I consider myself beyond blessed to get to continue to have amazing life adventures there.

Summit County, Colorado has many wedding sites to choose from, but none as remote and beautiful as Blue Lakes!  Blue Lakes is a reservoir located just 7.3 miles from Breckenridge and it is the perfect match for the couple who is looking for a true intimate adventure wedding elopement with beautiful 360 views of the rocky mountains.  For Mike and Leah, this was the perfect scene for their mountain wedding.  Here is a sneak peak at an elegant alpine wedding in Summit County…
