Sapphire Point Overlook Wedding | The Sarnes
Mercy reached out to me last year about photographing her and Gages’ elopement out in Colorado and I was so ecstatic, it seemed like August would never get here. Mercy and I know each other from college age times back in Ohio and it was so wonderful showing a familiar face one of my favorite trails in Breckenridge.
Mercy and Gage met when they both worked for Apple, and the rest is history. Surrounded by family and the mountains, they said their vows at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge, we took some family photos, and then walked around the trail together to capture them amongst some magical mountains.
Sapphire Point is in-between Silverthorn and Breckenridge. You travel a two lane windy road that pulls into a small parking lot to the trailhead, and then there is about a mile long loop around Sapphire Point that you can walk. This spot in Breckenridge is so great for elopements and weddings because although it is always public, you can reserve the little overlook park for a wedding. Mercy and Gage got married on Monday, August 12th at 8am and it was the perfect time to have such a busy trail to themselves and their family. Sapphire Point Overlook itself sits high above Dillon Reservoir, the town of Frisco, and Breckenridge. To the south you can see the Ten Mile Range, as well as Breckenridge Ski Resort.
If you’re looking for a wonderful spot near Breckenridge, Frisco, or Silverthorn, I recommend Sapphire Point Overlook for your next wedding or elopement.
