This group of images is courtesy of Joe Kusumoto, a longtime mountain man who works for the local adaptive organization, the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center, of which I have volunteered (and you all should too) as a ski and snowboard helper.
We’ve worked with Joe at numerous events here in Breckenridge, Summit County and even the Vail Valley and Beaver Creek. Mention “Summit Mountain Weddings” when contacting Joe! He wants to know you found him on this blog.
“Simply put, Joe’s passion is people. Being around people, being a part of and witnessing human interactions, living and feeling and experiencing.
Joe’s wedding photography is an extension of what he loves: portraying people. With a unique sensitivity towards his subjects, he finds the emotion and purity of the moments that are important to you.” - from kusumotophoto.com
When the locals of Breckenridge realized that they were left off the map in 1936, they declared this mountainous space the “Kingdom of Breckenridge.” We’ve come along way since then, offering world-class skiing, activities and lodging that are great for any time of year. Click on the following links to learn about Breckenridge.
Check back often, as we’ll be continuously adding videos, venue tours, and real mountain weddings not only about Breckenridge, but also Copper Mountain, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silverthorne. We can also help with weddings at Arapahoe Basin, as there are no overnight services available on the mountain. They do offer a few moonlight dinners this season, so ask us how to fill in the details for your mountain wedding, elopement, anniversary and / or vow renewals!
You can also see what folks are tweeting and posting about by visiting Breckentweets.com to read Our Daily Breck, a collection of mountain folks that are in the Breckenridge area. Just released yesterday, you can now see the Google “street view” on the slopes of Breckenridge by clicking here!
The Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge has been the setting for hundreds of brides and grooms exchanging their vows in the Rocky Mountains. Call and ask for Rhonda, the manager who can start the process of you planning your event at a wedding venue that sits above 10,200 feet. Not far from this lodge is Boreas Pass road, and is a great spot for panoramic photo shoots.
