A Picturesque Proposal in Telluride

The snow is falling, the fire is glowing, and it’s 4 days until Christmas! Danielle and Eli step off the gondola at the top of the mountain at the beautiful Telluride Ski Resort nestled peacefully in the San Juan Mountains . While Danielle has spent numerous occasions exploring the beauty of this quiet little town, she could have never guessed that in a very few short moments, her life was about to change. With shaking hands, Eli gets down on his knee and before he speaks another word, tears flow down her cheeks. Before he can even put the ring on her finger, she jumps into his arms with every bit of joy she has. They were now officially engaged in Telluride!!

The ring has a beautiful story!
Eli purchased the ring from William Levine Fine Jewels which is located in downtown Chicago. What’s so special is that his grandfather’s friend’s dad opened this shop. So now his grandmother, mom, and now Danielle all have a ring from the same jeweler. How spectacular is that?!

What’s so magical about Telluride, is that there are so many moments when the whole resort feels like it’s your very own.. if only for awhile. The evening was so perfect, and the sunset just added to the joy that is displayed on their faces!

BTW Telluride has the most fabulous FREE GONDOLA!! Side note, my husband proposed to me in one of these Gondolas almost 8 years ago. Seeing this moment and being able to document it NEVER gets old to me. I just simply love LOVE and being able to be a part of it makes my “job” the best in the world.


Congratulations to you two, Danielle & Eli! I can’t wait to hear more about all your wedding plans as you dive into the all the details! Just to give a quick tip, Telluride has the most amazing vendors around. I have had the privilege of working with many of them on wedding days. Telluride Unveiled, a TOP design & planning company specializing in luxury weddings, does thee most incredible job! Bridalveil Floral has never ceased to amaze me with beautiful floral designs & Erin Cain is an absolute genius with make-up!
