Sarah and Rob were one of the many couples caught in the tough spot of trying to figure out what to do about their wedding plans during a pandemic. When they realized that their families wouldn’t be able to travel to Colorado for their planned celebration, they postponed for a year. Though it was hard to let go of all the work they’d been pouring into their original wedding plans, they gradually decided that they didn’t want to wait another year to be officially married.
They took a couple of weeks to look at their options for an elopement, then decided that Crested Butte had everything that they wanted for their day.
A whirlwind trip a few weeks before the wedding allowed Sarah and Rob to find the perfect secluded spot for their ceremony.
After a first look at Peanut Lake, we headed up Gothic Road in their jeep to find their private ceremony spot.
Perched on the side of a hill, with views of a fall valley, and mountains, Sarah and Rob said their vows to each other with their pup Rigby by their side. I was too far away to hear their vows, but I asked Rob later what it was about Sarah that made him want to spend his life with her. His answer was about as perfect as it get: “She just gets me”.
After their vows and some portraits in the aspens, we headed to our last stop, Emerald Lake. We had to navigate around a bunch of cattle on the path, but we ended the evening in the quiet stillness of the lake and the twilight sky.
All in all, a perfect way to start a marriage. Congratulations you two!
