WHY YOU SHOULD ELOPE IN COLORADO

Take a moment to visualize this: The two of you wake up the morning of your wedding day in a unique cabin. The windows are open, filling the rooms with the crisp and ever so fresh mountain air. You can hear birds chirping in the distance. You look over at your loved one and see the golden morning light painting their face. You can't help but smile because today is the day you two become married. 

The morning is slow but absolutely perfect. As you make coffee and pancakes, covering each other with a million soft kisses, you forget your photographer is even there; documenting some of the most purest moments of your lives. There is no wedding day hustle and stress. Everything is calm and at ease. 

After breakfast you head out to Garden of the God's in Colorado Springs. Laced up boots and a packed backpack, you two are ready to explore the beautiful views. After spending several hours together, you find the spot. the spot that calls to you both, that screams the connection you so crave when immersed in nature. It's perfect. 

You return to your cabin so you both can get ready for the evening, when you say your vows. Tears slowly roll down your cheek, you never imagined a day so perfect. In that moment you know without a doubt, this experience was the best decision you two could ever have made. 

At the spot you look out onto the world. You see golden lit skies, beautiful green trees and towering red rocks. There is comfort within the rocks. They almost speak to you. Without saying a word, you feel your voice heard. You and your loved one matter, your relationship matters. You never felt that as strongly as you do in this moment. You are caught by surprise when your partner grazes your hand with theirs. You see a piece of paper in their other hand. The gaze ever so deeply in your eyes. Their voice trembles as they speak their vows to you. In that moment, no one else existed. Not even your photographer. You both were so consumed by each others love and the vast wilderness. The day ended as only one could imagine a perfect day for two souls to end....married.  

This is an experience you both deserve to have. You deserve to celebrate your relationship in a way that it fully embodies your story and your values.
