At the top of Swan Mountain Road rests an accessible bit of heaven ready to host your elopement and intimate wedding. During ceremony, your guests look South to the town of Breckenridge and the surrounding mountains. This well-placed overlook can hold about 35 guests standing, or about 30 in chairs. It’s a public space so you can expect curious hikers smiling as you exchange vows and timeliness is important as another wedding party is often ready to use the space the moment you’re done. A little planning is all that stands between you and a Sapphire Point Wedding.
Sapphire Point Wedding | Rachel + Leigh
There are wedding stories, and then there are wedding stories. Rachel & Leigh came from Australia for a destination elopement on the side of a mountain in Colorado. It had always been in the plans since they fell in love, but some other things happened first. Like starting a successful roadway safety engineering firm in Oz. And having three kids, lol. The kids knew something us up with this surprise elopement when mum & daddy kept insisting they get fitted for formal close and the bags to Colorado were awfully big! They were delighted when they heard the news, and after all what children don’t love a wedding? We started with some getting ready photos at their Air B+B in Breckenridge, then after a first look we made our way down valley for the Sapphire Point wedding.
The winter sun was kind to us all and made for some breathtaking views. You can see for miles! After some fun walking around Breckenridge, I said goodbye to my Australian friends. Now wishes of good luck were needed. By now, everyone knows this union will last. Especially their children.
