Ten Mile Station

I have always wanted to get married in the mountains. I grew up in Montana, and the mountains remind me of home. For several reasons we decided not to get married in Montana, but I at least wanted the mountains to be the backdrop.

One of the things I love about living in Denver is that you can see the front range almost everyday. Mr. Cookie and I searched several wedding locations in Denver, but there was something about the venues that just didn’t feel like us or you couldn’t see the mountains. Even though it was late November and Ten Mile Station was snow packed, I knew it was the venue the moment we stepped inside.

Ten Mile Station is located on the Breckenridge Ski Resort and a whopping 10,234 feet above sea level. Even though I am in love with the location, I never dreamed that part of our wedding prep would be to prepare guests for altitude sickness! During the winter, Ten Mile is used as a cafe for skiers, but during the summer/fall it’s used for weddings. The panoramic backdrop of the Ten Mile Mountain Range will not only be visible during our ceremony, but the reception as well!

The patio where our wedding ceremony will take place. Look at that view!

And finally, the dance floor!

There is also a quick little slide show by In Photography if you would like to see more of our venue. Although, I must warn you that there is a weird amount of food photos.

Why did you choose your venue? Is there anything special to you about your wedding location?

    I am so jealous! We would have LOVED to get married in Colorado as it’s where we got engaged (Crested Butte) and also where my family has been going for vacation in both winter and summer for generations. My husband’s grandfather had just had heart surgery though so the altitude was a problem.

    That looks gorgeous with the mountain views. I hope you use wildflowers for decoration like some of the pictures above. So beautiful.

    Since you asked, we’re getting married at a summer camp that we both love! My fiance’ worked there in high school, and about eight years later, I randomly worked for the same program! It’s a gorgeous venue!

    Looks gorgeous! I love the inside AND the outside–what a find!

    So, about that altitude sickness… Is it really a concern at 10,000 feet? How are you going to prepare guests for it? (just curious, of course)

    @brendalynn: Altitude sickness is a concern at 10,000 feet because it generally starts at 6,000 feet above sea level. I’m more concerned about our older guests than anyone else. The best way to avoid it is to acclimate to the height. Instead of having the rehearsal dinner in Breck, we have decided to have it in Denver, and that gives people a day to acclimate without even knowing it.

    Thanks for the sensible article. My friend and I were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and many books are not as informative as your site. I am very glad to see such information that I was searching for a long time. :)
