Staying true to who you are on your wedding day is something I not only encourage but love to emphasize when capturing a wedding. Think about it, you have found the person who loves you for you, all your friends and family are beyond excited to celebrate your love, so why steer away from the qualities that have brought you to where you are today? I believe that being your truest self is the key to happiness and true love. Our couple Paige and Damian fully embodied this for their Lake Powell elopement!!
An intimate elopement was the perfect setting for these two to exchange vows. I was so honored to be a part of it!! They truly are two of the kindest souls I have ever met; soft-spoken with hearts of gold! Within minutes of meeting Paige and Damian, they and their families felt like home. They welcomed us to join this special day where I had the best time celebrating and capturing their love story that began so many years ago.
From gorgeous invitations to a first dance under twinkle lights, this Lake Powell elopement in Page, Arizona was perfect. As I mentioned, staying true to who you are for your wedding will make all the difference in helping you feel comfortable and at ease on your big day. Paige and Damian showed us their true selves with their wedding attire. As Paige wore Birkenstocks with her Rue De Seine dress and Damian wore a light linen suit. I loved their wedding outfits so much!!! And can we take a moment to admire how perfect their attire was for their elopement at Lake Powell?! Their outfits were complimented perfectly by the clay sands, soft skies, and crystal blue lake.
Our couple only invited their closest friends and family, which made their elopement all the more intimate and special. Paige and Damian had written incredibly emotional vows and there wasn’t a single dry eye. When you see a couple who love each other as much as Paige and Damian, it is hard to not cry happy tears for them!! Especially when their love story has gone on for so many years. Seeing two lovers commit to spending forever together is so special.
We are so glad they did!! Page, Arizona provided them with the perfect day for their elopement. The breeze in the air, the golden glow from the sun, and the intimate location set the tone for beautiful vibes all around. You could tell their family and friends knew that every second of travel was worth it when they saw the smiles on Paige and Damian’s faces. The love in the air was radiant and I was beyond happy for everyone!!
If you’re planning your wedding or elopement, I truly encourage you to look inward at you and your partner’s relationship. What makes you you and how can you incorporate those special traits into your wedding day? Whether it’s through your favorite footwear, a favorite memory, or location, your wedding day should feel like you. For some of us, we love the idea of a large party while others love the intimacy of a private elopement. Whatever your style is and wherever your wedding day ends up, just know that you are doing it all for love… and there is something so beautiful about that!!
