Anne & Gregory | October 10th | Keystone, Colorado
From the bride:
We knew that we wanted a venue with a rustic and outdoorsy feel. On a ski trip, we found the Ski Tip Lodge in Keystone and fell in love with its old world charm. We also liked the fact that the Lodge took care of the food, liquor, cake, ceremony and reception set-up.

Our ceremony was set outdoors, on the lawn of the lodge, overlooking an emerald green pond, with the majestic mountains in the background. We booked for October 10th, knowing that the weather would be a bit cooler with a potential for snow. However, on the day of, it was 50 degrees and sunny.Together, Greg and I composed the ceremony using elements taken from a traditional Irish “Loving Cup” ceremony, a combined Christian and secular ceremony. We wanted it to be personalized as opposed to standardized. WORDS OF WISDOM
Hire a wedding planner and pay for a good seamstress. Also: Breathe and take a moment to step back, listen and watch. It was the best day of our lives, which leads me to also say – do not skimp on the price of the photographer. The images will last a lifetime and will be there to remind you of the day when your memory starts to fade.
