Their Story: We met in Springfield, IL at a local dive bar called “Bob’s Butternut Hut.”. We knew we wanted a smaller wedding and we take a ski trip every year so we decided to combine the two and have an elopement in the mountains with our closest friends and family.”
Micro-wedding Package Details: Jessica and Sean got married in the mountain of Colorado towards the end of ski season - after spring break, which is a great time of year when it starts to warm up and lodging rates start to drop. They had 35 guests present, 2 bridesmaids, 2 groomsmen and married at a gorgeous overlook which allow for seating. After their "I Do's", the group celebrated in a private room at a restaurant in Breckenridge.

I've been planning weddings since 1995 when I moved to Colorado from Iowa. I cut my teeth at Keystone Resort in their wedding department, then then ventured on to planning corporate meetings. But, I kept helping friends and their friends with weddings starting my first full-service company in 2002 (yes - planned the big overwhelming ones). In 2012 with the birth of my son, values shifted and I decided to go small, intimate and meaningful. Please connect with me to make your dreamy, simple mountain wedding come true!
Behind the Scenes
Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of a micro-wedding day? Jaime L. Barba, one of our talented professional photographers, captured me at work from one of our May 2023 weddings in Boulder, Colorado. Enjoy! .... and yes, she does wedding-day content creation (a great alternative if you cannot afford videography) for couples as well as photography.
What is a wedding day content creator? It’s someone who is there on your wedding day taking pictures on a cell phone (or in Jaime's case, her professional equipement), documenting behind-the-scenes moments, capturing and telling stories, and delivering short-form media content of your wedding day in real-time.
