Haley & Nathan’s wedding was our first Bear Creek Mountain Resort wedding, and Lincoln and I absolutely loved it! Most people know Bear Creek as a busy winter ski resort, but during the summer time this venue really calms down and is an over-the-top luxurious resort and spa. It’s such a perfect venue for family and friends to escape reality for a few days and celebrate a wedding. Every direction you look is simply stunning, from the modern architecture, to the manicured landscaping, to the rolling mountains. The night before the wedding, Haley & Nathan’s friends all partied in a spectacular two-story suite, which is also where Haley got ready the next morning. We kicked off the wedding day with a first look in the stone-walled courtyard (with the bridesmaids watching from their balcony!), and then had some fun roaming the grounds before the ceremony. In spite of all the recent videos of bridal parties causing docks to collapse, we crossed our fingers as the ~20-person bridal party walked out on the lake’s dock (it looked pretty sturdy!). The dock held, and Lincoln once again narrowly avoided falling into the water to get the shot (worth it!). The light during the wedding ceremony was absolutely heavenly, and poked out from over the mountains and behind the clouds just in time for a breathtaking ceremony. It was perfect. The Bear Creek wedding reception ballroom was decked out from floor to ceiling with decorative touches that had all the guests buzzing, and the Uptown Band was undoubtedly one of the more impressive wedding bands we’ve seen to date. At the end of the night, every guest grabbed some premium-grade sparklers to create a magical exit for Haley & Nathan. What a night! Lincoln and I want to come back for another Bear Creek wedding as soon as possible!
