Sapphire Point | Dillon Marina Park Pavilion Wedding
Sapphire Point and Dillon Marina Park Pavilion Wedding
We have shot at Sapphire Point a lot. All times of day and all times of year. While that might sound like hyperbole it is really the case. For John and Callie the wedding started at noon officially. We however got started with a first look and some photos around the Sapphire Point area in the 10AM hour.
For anyone wondering about the mid day hour for lighting for most it will be a struggle. 11AM is likely the most difficult as its in your face almost any main mountain direction. There was a morning wedding there and it did seem from the comments of the other photographer that they were struggling. We are used to the location and come equipped lighting wise so we were good to go.
After taking some couples photos before the ceremony core family showed up for a noon ceremony. They were rather non traditional as a couple which we loved. They had done their real vows privately just before the public ceremony. We followed with some family photos and some additional couples photos around the Overlook. From there it was off to the party with all the friends at the Dillon Pavilion.

Dillon Marina Park Pavilion Review:
We have shot at the Dillon Reservoir numerous times at various places. We have shot in the reservoir when the water was lower. This was the first time with the angle of the reservoir from the Dillon Marina Park Pavilion. You can use the link to get details on the specific location and reservations. Parking was a little harder mid day on a Saturday with a Farmers market but we made it work. They had a good setup with a great view. Midway through a fairly heavy storm rolled though bringing hail. Like any true Coloradan this is when you make a snowman in the summer. They had some outside catering cooked onsite that was delicious and a lot of beverage. On the cost savings end a reception like this in a public rental space is ideal. It is ideal from the cost to rent but also on the food and drink end as there are significant savings. The view was amazing and really I think with the slope of the terrain that they could have done the ceremony there as well.
