Our photography and videography team is lucky enough to visit Breckenridge pretty often with our couples, and one of our favorite spots to take them is Blue Lakes! This location has a beautiful mix of mountain, lake, and forest views (and even a small waterfall!). It’s also very close to town, and mountain goats are often spotted here. The location is best for elopements between late May through early November depending on weather and accessibility.
Today we wanted to highlight some of our favorite elopements at Blue Lakes from the past couple of years, including both photos and videos we’re sure you’ll love.
A Summertime Elopement at Blue Lakes
This past summer we had our full photo and video team capture Stephanie + Andrew’s special day with Stephanie’s son at Blue Lakes in Breckenridge. We loved how they integrated her son into Andrew’s vows, and they had quite the epic light saber battle at the end with him! 🙂
Here’s their Breckenridge elopement highlight video:

Next up, some of our favorite photos from Allison + Trevor’s elopement!
One of the nice things about Blue Lakes near Breckenridge for elopements is that it has plenty of space for some guests to come with you. Allison + Trevor brought their closest family members to join them on their elopement day, and despite the freezing temps and snow storm blowing through, we got some truly stunning fall photographs with them. They ended the day with an intimate reception with first dances, cake, dinner and drinks at a fantastic rental home in Alma, and we were honored to be a part of it.
Jordan + Garett’s fall elopement!
We met them at a cute rental house just down the street from the trail, where we captured some adorable details (like their “we eloped” sign!), their first look and a surprise gift for Garett. Jordan wanted to gift him a wall canvas print of the place they were going to say their vows, so I captured one for them in advance of the day and brought it with me. He was definitely surprised, and now it’s looking amazing hanging inside their home! <3
Garett also had a surprise up his sleeve, too: a necklace for Alexis (Jordan’s daughter) that matched Jordan’s rings pretty well. Made us all tear up! <3 Alexis also played the role of officiating their ceremony at the top of the mountain. We spent the rest of the evening exploring everything this gorgeous area near Breckenridge has to offer.
Another fall elopement in Breckenridge
Amy + Daniel celebrated their elopement ceremony at Blue Lakes as well, and we loved capturing this video for them.
