We first met Kelly + Nick last year when we were vacationing in Colorado. We ended up taking their engagement photos and then they hired us for their big day!!! Coronavirus unfortunately changed their plans from a big wedding to a tiny elopement with just the two of them and their cutie dog Lily.
Even though it was different than what they had planned their day was SO freaking perfect. We met for sunrise and then drove up the mountain till we couldn’t anymore because of snow drifts. It was freeeeezing too and it was June! We hiked the rest of the way and it was perfect timing. They got into their ceremony attire while the sun made the mountains pink, and then had their first look. Then they exchanged vows (everyone cried), rings and signed their marriage license with their dog as their witness! yeah, Colorado is really cool lol.
Afterwards we ran around and took some bridal photos, popped champagne for mimosas, potted a plant, and they even had breakfast tacos for us. Like honestly what could be better? To finish off the morning they went into the freezing lake!!! It was the most epic thing ever and the best way to end the day. They eloped 12,000ft up in the prettiest Colorado mountain and it was them in every way. Can’t even wait to celebrate them again next year!!!
