When you look back on your wedding day, you should feel no regrets. I'm not talking about wishing you'd picked a different color scheme for your bouquet. I'm talking about the real stuff, like dealing with pushy family members, feeling anxious and stressed about the details, and not feeling like you could truly be yourself on the wedding day. - I hear I wish we'd eloped a lot, and it makes me so sad. Let's let go of the pressures from society, family, and friends and consider what you and your partner truly want on your wedding day. What will make you feel safe and loved? What will make you feel like your true selves. What will you look back on and always say We have no regrets?
I’m pretty sure we’re all mountain lovers here, right?? 🗻 Have you ever been really drawn to a particular mountain or range? I mean, there are so many beautiful mountains in the world, but sometimes you just feel so in awe of a particular place. For me it’s Grand Teton in Wyoming and the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado. 🗻 Pretty much all of Colorado is gorgeous, and while I love a lot of its mountains (Pikes Peak and the Breckenridge area are favs), I am always drawn back to the San Juans. They just speak to me and keep me constantly in wonder. 🗻 And the peak of Grand Teton? Wow. The first time I saw it I felt emotional taking in it’s raw beauty. It’s incredibly rugged and just… majestic. I’m really looking forward to experiencing the munros of Scotland soon. And I’d love to see The Matterhorn and the mountains of Patagonia one day. I’m betting it would be a similar experience to seeing snowy Grand Teton for the first time! 🗻 What mountains are your absolute favorite? Or where is your mountain-loving soul calling you?
For your elopement, you could just do a quick ceremony and then take some photos together for an hour or two. BUT, wouldn’t your experience and your photos be so much more meaningful if you spent the day together doing your favorite things, feeling relaxed and not rushed and enjoying every little moment of this incredible day? - Let’s plan your elopement to be an epic day filled with activities that speak to who you are as a couple and the things you love. Let’s hike a mountain at sunrise. Let’s kayak to a secluded island for your ceremony. Let’s roast marshmallows over a fire as your stargaze. Let's hike 2+ miles through a slot canyon! - Dress: @reclamationdesigncompany Jacket: @pendletonwm

I'm crazy about elopements. While chatting with a couple the other day, I got teary-eyed talking about my passion for elopements and what I love about them. I get SO much joy from helping couples plan their unique elopements and being there for such a meaningful moment in their lives. It really is an honor and such wonderful experience. Elope, my friends! - Florals: @abitofearthflowers Hair + Makeup: @cassandramcclure
