When is the Best Time for a colorado mountain wedding?

The mountain towns of Colorado can vary so much, things like elevation and sun exposure will greatly change the feel of your wedding day. However, here are some rough guidelines for planning your mountain wedding. 

Summer is one of my favorite times to photograph in Vail because the weather is so predictable. Temperatures are relatively mild (especially comparing it to Texas, my home state!)

Spring can be colder than you might think!
 Some of the most snow in the mountains happens in Spring, just think of all those folks still skiing on Spring Break! Many mountain passes don't open until Mid-May. 

Fall has the most gorgeous colors, but it comes and goes quickly!
Fall is my favorite season in Colorado. The orange and yellow leaves are absolutely magical. But Fall can come and go quickly. Sometimes those gorgeous leaves only last a week. But if you plan it right (and with a little luck) your wedding would be stunning. 

Winter can be freezing or mild.
Winter in Colorado is always a toss up. It can be frigid or mild. Always plan for it being cold. (Layers, proper transportation, etc.) 

my take...

When would I plan a mountain wedding? Go with Summer or Fall! If you're wanting those gorgeous fall colors, aim for late September. Luckily though, Colorado is beautiful all year round– you really can't go wrong!
