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!
The inside of Ten Mile Station.
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?
