Nichele and Ben. What’s better than getting married on a mountain in the middle of winter? As a Keystone wedding planner I can tell you…nothing. Everyone is bundled up and the worst thing that can happen is it can snow. But that’s half the fun isn’t it? I’m so happy to share this wedding with you. From the pine cone escort card holders to the bride’s white shawl, the entire wedding screamed winter. Love! Even the flowers by Ladybird Poppy were winter themed. These two were married on Anticipation Run in Keystone, Colorado. It is simply my favorite backdrop for a Colorado winter wedding. Thank you to Sarah Roshan Photography for these stunning photos! And if you want to see their wedding video, check out Bosha Video by clicking here! Also a big shout out to A Great Time DJ who kept the party going once the guests arrived at the reception venue at the Alpenglow Stube. So much fun! It leaves me wondering, why doesn’t everyone have a Colorado winter wedding?!

How beautiful is this couple and this wedding!?!! Our busy summer wedding season is from June until September. We are lucky enough to plan a handful of winter weddings every year. These weddings tend to be smaller occasions ranging anywhere from just the couple to about 20 people. Jamie and Andy pulled out all the stops when planning their Keystone winter wedding. Six piece band…check! Beautiful (and delicate) floral arrangements…check! Over 100 guests…check! Oh, and did I mention everyone needed to take two gondolas to get there? Gondolas are not just for skiing anymore 🙂 Jamie and Andy were married at Our Lady of Peace in Silverthorne, Colorado. After the I do’s the couple and guests made their way to River Run in Keystone to load the gondola and head to Timber Ridge. I don’t know how she did it but Sarah at Ladybird Poppy managed to get all of the breathtaking flowers up two gondolas without even a wilted petal. Incredible! The wedding party and guests partied all night long to the jams of Raising Cain Band. A huge thank you to Christin and River of Riv/Rose for capturing and sharing this day!
Thank you Jamie and Andy for choosing Distinctive Mountain Events to be your winter wedding planners for your big day! We had so much fun planning with you and wish you a lifetime of happiness!

These two. What can I say! What a fun, adventurous couple! First, they got married at the Keystone Ranch in Keystone, Colorado by the one and only Leon Littlebird. In front of the fireplace under an elk, perfection. Next they headed off on a dogsled ride. (Bride still wearing her dress, mind you) Then they went to an open area where they lit off colored smoke bombs. The reception was where they ended the night and transformed the Pioneer Club at Main Street Station into a beautiful winter wonderland. I’m not finished. They then went outside to have an amazing fog photoshoot. Finally to round out the day, they played an intense game of Mario Cart. Phew! Yes, all in one day. Katie Girtman from Studio Kiva some how kept up with these two to capture every moment of the day. Thank you Katie for the awesome photos!
Christina and Rob, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. You two were such a pleasure to work with and I loved the adventure! 🙂
