Copper Mountain Wedding | CB Grill
Emotion Filled Copper Mountain Wedding
We love to shoot events that are laden with emotion. While some people may not want to see any tears in the eyes we love the real and authentic nature to it. The best weddings are those that reflect the couple and are meaningful. Walter and Morgan made the day their own and focused it on what mattered to them – the people. You can see this priority in that the people that it was not a huge party of your closest 200 friends but all people who could laugh and cry with them – that kind of closeness. There was a long cocktail hour with their guests to kick off the celebrations. There was a pass the mic style toasts that were rich and heartfelt.
Copper Mountain | CB Grill Review:
When on the slopes we are normally at the Vail resorts. That being said the resorts are bigger, more fancy, and likely have more elaborate wedding deck setups. The wedding was the first of the day so it the morning 10-12 timeframe. Lighting wise things were reversed from the afternoon / evening lighting which would have given a different look to the location with some backlighting. The perk of the earlier time is that you do not get a passing thunderstorm to delay your plans. We took a bus up as we started before the lifts opened. The facilities were not exclusively used for the wedding but anyone else coming up never made it on the backside to the ceremony site. The place where the dress went on was in a back corner through a maze of black curtains covering the cafeteria area. Overall, our recommendation would be to ride the lift up and down and just to note if you are the first up to potentially bring a towel if there is any moisture on the seat. There was this mini pavilion up top which is big but did not seem functional for any real purpose. It is too tall to provide any shelter and too small to fit much under it. It seems like it would be better if they took the top off it and built in amphitheater seating on the slope down to it.
CB Grill was one of the many options in the Copper Mountain resort town. It was classy, elegant, and had some delicious food. They served up some bacon wrapped lamb skewers, parmesan mini lasagna cups, and some caprese skewers during cocktail hours. Dinner was a Pear and goat cheese spinach salad, tomato soup with fresh baked bread, and chicken parmesan or beef tenderloins. Hopefully when you are reading this you are not hungry but if you are stop by there for dinner – it was so good! Portions for the meal were rather large and many guests could not finish. If you were using it for your wedding and had full use of the space the main room would be ideal for the dinner and the room we used more for the dancing and stuff.
