Elopements are a core part of the intimate wedding day experience. You don’t have to elope to have an intimate wedding,of course, but there is something so magical about taking the time to get away with just your person and really focus in on what your marriage means to you. Its a time to be absolutely devoted to each other and to celebrate your past, present, and future.
Sarah and Tim did just that for their Maroon Bells Fall Elopement.
From the start they knew that they wanted to forgo the pomp and circumstance of a big wedding and they chose to fly to Colorado from Kansas City for a week-long mountain getaway. Sarah and Tim did their research and considered a list of Colorado venues for their elopement, but in the end, they kept coming back to Maroon Bells and Aspen. In my opinion, it could not have been more perfect for them.
We timed our morning to hit Maroon Bells at sunrise and were able to catch the alpenglow before trekking up to the secluded amphitheater for vows, a first dance, and cake cutting. Tim and Sarah’s vows were super personal and I love that they took turns reading from their vow books–creating a cadence of back and forth that demonstrated mutual respect and love for each other.
The weather could not have been more perfect, the aspens were turning yellow, and we spent the next three hours just wandering around the lake, taking in the moments of joy and love.
Sarah and Tim, I’m so thankful that you chose me to celebrate with you and I wish you all the best in your future!
Thank you to my 2nd photographer, Kate, for coming along and keeping me company!
