Breckenridge Colorado Wedding | Melissa + Spencer

Lodge at Breckenridge Wedding | Summit County Colorado

Melissa and Spencer got married on a beautiful late summer day in Breckenridge, Colorado at the Lodge at Breckenridge.

I have photographed many weddings at this Colorado mountain wedding venue, and one of the reasons I love it are the views off the deck where most wedding ceremonies take place. There are stunning views of the Breckenridge ski resort on one side of the deck, and beautiful mountain views on the other side. I also love the dog-friendliness of the Lodge. They have a welcome sign for all dog guests. And, the food. I’ve consumed many wedding meals, and the Lodge at Breck has a top-notch catering staff/chef.

Their wedding day was lovely. I feel honored to have witnessed it. Keep reading for more insights and photos too, of course.

More favorite memories from this Summit County wedding include

*The bridesmaids presented Melissa with a framed photo gift as she was getting ready. In all of the weddings that I’ve photographed, I haven’t witnessed too much of that. So sweet.

*I love the paper “We love you,” signs that guests held up at the end of the wedding ceremony. This is another touch that I haven’t seen too often at weddings.

*The touching emotion during the best man’s speech.

*The special married couples dance…all married couples got up to dance and those who were married the longest remained on the dance floor until the end. So inspiring.

*The limbo dance with the neck ties. I heard some of the guests trying to get it set up. They succeeded! It was so fun to watch. And, in addition to that, there were circle dances with bold, happy people taking the stage, and line dancing too. I love wedding dancing!

*A wedding guest teasing the father of the bride about why the golf ball wedding gifts weren’t Titlest Pro V1s.

As always, many thanks to the wonderful wedding couple, Melissa and Spencer, for trusting me to capture their Lodge at Breckenridge wedding. Please enjoy images from their wedding day below.

hey there!


I've been photographing families professionally since 2006. I am a wife, mama to 2 boys, companion to 2 cats who are named after members of the royal British family, a former preschool teacher. I love running, hiking 14ers, sparkly clothes, the band Phish, river float trips, St. John USVI, farm CSAs, and Colorado blue skies.
