Mountain Wedding Planning Tips – Altitude

After 9 years in the business I have worked at hundreds lot of weddings.  Mountain weddings offer opportunities that are hard to beat in an urban city environment, but they present a wide variety of logistical challenges.  Therefore, I work closely with my couples during their planning process to ensure they are prepared for anything.  My background in Outdoor Leadership taught me if you want to stay safe and have a good time outdoors in the mountains, you must plan ahead and prepare.  The best advice I can give my brides to enjoy their wedding day, is to plan ahead and prepare for the worst which is actually the first principal of the Leave No Trace Ethic Guide.  I used to be a certified teacher, so I hope sharing my knowledge will help improve the outcome and experience you have at your mountain wedding.  To ready more about the Planning Ahead, check out the LNT website.

Mountain Wedding Planning Tips – Weather

Wedding After 9 years in the business I have realized that I have to share my knowledge to everyone I possibly can!  I hope this video series helps you plan your mountain wedding.  My first video is about the most important thing to consider when planning a wedding, the weather.

Today most brides are trying to plan their wedding on their own, well with the help of Pinterest, but they often forget to consider the environment around them.  Nature is unpredictable, so mountain weddings require a lot more planning than any other type of wedding.  Weather is highly unpredictable and in the mountains temperatures can fluctuate dramatically, especially in transitional seasons.  Planning a mountain wedding can be a full time job.  There are just so many scenarios to consider and plan for, rain and wind being the biggest two.
