How to plan the perfect, intimate Colorado wedding
Our wedding was small, and very carefully planned. We went back and forth about what to do, whether we wanted a big wedding or an intimate wedding, or an elopement. however, when it came down to what felt the most right, A small, adventurous, elopement style wedding was so much more our speed. We were so in love with the Colorado Rockies and Breathtaking landscape. And we loved the idea that so many of our most precious loved ones could make the trip. So, we rented a huge cabin in Breckenridge, among the changing aspens and the rockies where we could house our bridal party. We caravanned up an unpaved road to a mountain pass. My best friend and maid of honor sang and Alex’s groomsman played his guitar as I walked down the aisle. And we read our vows to each other as the sun set over the Rocky Mountains and my dad married us.
Our intimate mountain wedding contained everything we wanted and more! Adventure, uniqueness, and an intimate shared experience with our favorite people in the world.
So many people asked us the same question when we got engaged
“Are you guys going to take your own photos?”
Well the answer is, “Why, yes, yes we are”
We contemplated for a long time what we were going to do about our wedding photographer. Hiring someone was our first instinct of course! We went through a long list of our most admired photographers out there, but we had no idea what to do. In the end, we decided on up flying our assistant, and dear friend, out to Colorado to take our photos.
POST ELOPEMENT MINI-MOON IN RMNP
No Colorado adventure elopement is complete without a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.
We drove up and ran around the landscape among the Rocky Mountains. We weren’t able to breathe or hear over the wind, but we trekked to highest road in the continental United States: Trail Ridge Road. Sometimes we like to feel small because we could all stand to be humbled every once in a while.
