Four Seasons Vail Elopement at Christmas- Dan + Devon - Vail Wedding Photographer

Doing a wedding in the mountains just days before Christmas is challenging. There are scores of people everywhere, wearing brightly colored ski/snowboarding clothes. It is definently cold. The sun sets super early and the mountain closes even earlier. Weather like this is hard on clothing, makeup, hair, flowers (they freeze and wilt!), toes and chaps your lips. You may remember seeing Dan and Devon's Mississippi Engagement Session where they are currently stationed. If not you can see it HERE. Dan and Devon decided to have a more private destination elopement in Vail, Colorado and to celebrate with their friends and family once Dan's schooling was done. They stayed over the Christmas holiday at the Four Seasons Vail with a beautiful view out their balcony of the slopes. We changed our ceremony location a few times but Dan and Dev decided together (with some phone conversations and relays through me or my husband) to say their vows on the balcony at the Four Seasons overlooking the pool and the slopes behind. I noted below, but will also add here that Dan and Dev are pretty private people and have decided to share two photos from their ceremony and the other ones, you would have to see as a guest in their home. Make sure you scroll AAAAALLLLL the way down to the bottom... I know, it's annoying how many beautiful photos are in this blog ;) Dan and Dev did something that VERY few wedding couples do... especially at the Four Seasons Vail. I hope you all enjoy the gorgeous photos from Dan and Dev's Vail Winter Wedding!

Dan and Dev have requested that most of their ceremony at the Four Seasons to remain private, but were happy to share these two images with us!

After their intimate ceremony, we ran back down to the salon to change up Dev's hair for another look and then headed up the mountain in Lionshead Village.
