How to plan a Sapphire Point Marriage Proposal
Sapphire Point, near Frisco, CO, is one of the most popular locations for a marriage proposal in all of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. In any season (winter, summer, fall, and spring) this location is beautiful. I have personally seen 4 marriage proposals happen here within one hour. Each one is magical and even if you have strangers witness they will applaud and cheer and congratulate you.
When should I propose at Sapphire Point?
Mornings are definitely better than evening as far as the natural lighting goes. In the summer Lake Dillon can provide amazing reflections of the Ten Mile Range. In the winter Lake Dillon is frozen over and gives you the quintessential “winter wonderland” effect. Here are some samples of my work…
Not just marriage proposals
Sapphire Point is also very popular for wedding ceremonies. Regulations state that for such an event you must reserve the location through the Forest Service but this is not always the case. I have been forced to make a last minute change due to an “impromptu” wedding ceremony that was not properly reserved. My client was schedule to have his marriage proposal but upon my arrival there was a wedding party taking place. I quickly directed, and covertly, directed my client up the trail and still had Peak One in the backdrop.
When an unannounced wedding was taking place I quickly directed my client to walk the trail to a secondary spot that I had scouted just for such an event. Peak One of The Ten Mile Range is piercing through the tree line.
Even in the spring a snow storm can dump a couple of feet without warning. This was a marriage proposal in late May.
Early October is a perfect time to ask someone to marry you. Snow in the mountains tops and warmer drier conditions lend to beautiful marriage proposal moments at Sapphire Point Overlook.
