We’re in the midst of a particularly cold winter here in Denver. While the ice and snow make getting to work a little less fun, one upside of the chilly weather is the early opening of many of Colorado’s ski resorts. Stephanie and Brian managed to beat both the cold and the crowds at their Beaver Creek Resort wedding late this fall. The crisp fall air was perfect for taking photos outdoors, and it certainly helped that all the aspens had begun changing colors!
A Mountain of Activities
Beaver Creek Resort is a major ski resort owned by Vail Resorts. The company owns several other ski resorts in the state. Although winter sports are the resort’s biggest draw for visitors, the resort hosts activities all year long. Maybe you want to spend the day with a private snowboarding instructor. Or maybe a day at the spa is more your style. Whatever your interests are, Beaver Creek has it all. The resort even has its own village, complete with dining and shopping options. One of these fine dining options is Beano’s Cabin, which Stephanie and Brian chose as the venue for their Beaver Creek Resort wedding.
Beano’s Cabin is a seasonal restaurant, open from June – September and December – April. The restaurant features musical performances every night. It’s located directly on the mountain, providing guests with incredible views of the surrounding landscape. Guests who dine at Beano’s Cabin during its winter dates get to travel to their meal in style. According to Beaver Creek Resort, “the only way to get to Beano’s Cabin in the winter is via a 20-minute open-air sleigh ride pulled by a Snowcat.” That’s not the type of experience you’re likely to get at many other places.
We’d also like to give a big thanks to the vendors who made this wedding so spectacular! Shoutout to Rami Carter of Pick Me! for planning the event, Beano’s Cabin for catering, Cupcakes by Melissa for the dessert, Quintessential for providing the flowers, Claire Pettibone for the dress, Jean Garcia for hair styling, and the Hazel Miller Band for soundtracking it all!
