Christy & Phil | Vail Mountain Elopement | Vail, Colorado

Fate would bring these two empty nesters from the Mid-West together, and the top of Vail Mountain was the spot where they would blend their two families together. After short preperations, the group held hands in a circle at the observation deck off Eagle Bahn Gondola. They spent time in silence reflecting on the breathtaking view, their life paths up to this point, and all the happy times that lay ahead. Christy & Phil had special words for each of their children, Christy’s Mother, and both of Phil’s parents who all made the high altitude trek. The ceremony concluded just as the sunset was at its peak and we spent the last moments of light taking photos along the mountain ridge. We closed down the gondola at 6.30, just in time for cake cutting at The Larkspur down in Vail Village.

Props to Wendee Vezzetti who coordinates these unique intimate Colorado destination weddings. She plans the venue and vendors, you plan the vows. Contributing to this awesome day were officiant Leslie Ross, and florist A Secret Garden.
