Summit County Colorado Wedding Photographer | Sapphire Point Overlook

October 15, 2014

I’ve been taking families who are visiting from out of town to a place near Frisco, Colorado in Summit County called Sapphire Point for awhile now. It is a beautiful place in the mountains overlooking the gorgeous Blue River Arm of the Dillon Reservoir. The mountain views there are incredible and it’s just a short two minute walk to get to the overlook from the parking lot. I was so excited when I first heard from Lia that she and Steve were planning an intimate wedding there in the fall. I’ve always thought it would be the perfect place for a small wedding ceremony and I was pretty excited that I would get to photograph their nuptials there.

The weather here in Colorado sometimes gets a little crazy once October hits and it was pretty rainy and miserable in the days leading up to their wedding. But Lia & Steve must be incredibly lucky people because the rain held off for not just the ceremony but for all of their portrait time afterward too! It was a little chilly of course but that’s a small price to pay for a ceremony where no umbrellas were required. After the ceremony at Sapphire Point we all headed over to the 5th Avenue Grille in downtown Frisco where the staff did an excellent job keeping the drinks full and the food plentiful. It was a perfect day with friends and family celebrating their love for each other.

My favorite!

    Last summer a business trip turned into a magical week in the Colorado mountains when my husband’s conference (Denver) was cancelled at the last moment. The final spot that we visited before heading home- with our 4-yr-old in tow- was this place. It was spellbinding, and I am happy to see the special moment that you captured on film here. Thank you for sharing! Congratulations to the newlyweds and their family.
