Family Ski Elopement in Breckenridge, Colorado

This is the story of Jen & Bryon’s Breckenridge ski elopement. It’s a day I won’t ever forget. Not only was it fun as heck witnessing 2 young girls skin up a mountain and ski back down with their parents, but it was the way everyone came together to make the day so full of love, play, and fun.

The day as a whole was so well balanced too. There was time for Jen & Bryon to explore the mountains with snowshoes, just the two of them in the morning. In the afternoon we gathered with their immediate family at Sapphire Point Overlook for a wedding ceremony, and then went off and played with the kids. The day wrapped up where it all began at a stunning Airbnb where a private chef was to prepare a meal for them.

The elopement day was intentional, and thoughtful. Plus, does it get any better than a fresh snow bluebird day in Colorado? I don’t think so.

I left this elopement day feeling so touched by every person I met along the way. This family truly embodied what I could only dream of for myself one day.
