Jason and Blake wanted to elope in Vail during the 2017 New Year. Fortunately, I know of a special place I refer to as "Hidden Gem", away from the tourist hustle and bustle of Vail. It was a gorgeous location for their ceremony, especially against the snowy backdrop in January. At the same time, it's close enough to the town center to take advantage of the festive Christmas decorations and highlights of Vail Village.
Blake was adorable in her ski jacket, which matched the cream roses in her bouquet perfectly.
Vail offers so many fun places to take wedding photographs during the winter, including an ice sculpture bench, the covered, wooden bridge, and its cute shops lining cobblestoned streets.
