Love is in the Air: Breck Wedding Part I

Breckenridge Venue

Congratulations! You’re recently engaged and about to plan the most important day of your life- no pressure or anything. Luckily, the staff at BOB has all of the details you’ll need for the ultimate Wedding Day. Why not celebrate it in the most beautiful mountain town in the Rockies? Breckenridge is internationally known for being one of the most gorgeous and exciting places to have your wedding.  Your photos will be nothing short of stunning with the Tenmile Range as your backdrop, guests are sure to never forget this breathtaking celebration and the town of Breck definitely knows how to throw a party! So, let your engagement be a FUN time (as it should be) and reduce the stress of planning by reading our Breck Wedding Blog Series! Below, you will find the first installment of this blog series where we review the three most important categories in planning your wedding. Time to get started!

  1. Wedding Coordinators: NOONE should plan a wedding alone. Hiring a wedding coordinator in some capacity is well worth the peace of mind they will bring to your big day. If you don’t want to let someone else hold the reigns completely, there are partial planning and day-of services that will still reduce your stress, not your involvement.

  • Venues & Officiants: Let’s face it- location is everything, especially when it comes to your wedding celebration. You would think that with Breck as a backdrop that anywhere in town would be fine, but that’s not always the case. We’ve found you the best of the best. Most venues offer both ceremony and reception sites, but some sites are ceremony specific, so we have separated them appropriately.
