Advice for your adventure elopement day from an expert mountain elopement photographer! Trust me, I’ve photographed well over 200 elopements in the San Juan Mountains, I know what I’m talking about and I’m here to help!
You don’t need me or anyone else to tell you what to do on YOUR wedding day. I think the best thing is to do what you want! Whether that is sharing your vows at sunrise on a mountaintop or sleeping in and relaxing for the day. You do you! Fill your day with activities you love. Whether that is hiking, off-roading, exploring, paddleboarding, swimming, skiing, snowboarding, etc. Do things you love with the one you love!
Your elopement day will go by fast, especially if you want to go to several epic locations. Just remember to take it all in and relax. Soaking in the little moments, like the way your spouse looks at you or the vows you share are beautiful moments, meant to be treasured. Elopements can be spontaneous and that means letting go a little. It’s perfectly great to have a plan and a vision, but the fun part about elopements is that they don’t have to be as structured as a traditional wedding day. Want to take a nap? Want to stop and eat some cake? Let’s do it, we are on your time and your day can be filled with all the little moments you desire!
It is your wedding day after all! Whether you are eloping just the two of you or with close family and friends, make it all about the two of you! Your adventure elopement should be all about spending your special day with the one you love in a place you love! Consider, making time to have a picnic together or taking a nice break in a hammock. Whatever you do, taking a few moments to do what you love to do together is a great choice!
If you don’t like to hike, don’t do it on your wedding day. Your wedding day should be all about the two of you getting married the way YOU want to get married! Your adventure elopement doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s, that’s what is so great about eloping! You can do it your way, the sky is the limit! I will help you every step of the way with making your elopement the wedding day of your dreams!
The great thing about elopements is that you can be a little more flexible and spontaneous. Don’t get so caught up in the things you can’t control and focus on the two of you getting married and in a breathing taking location. Don’t worry, I will help you make sure your dress is in place, your makeup isn’t smeared and your hair is out of your face. I see all the little details so that you don’t have to worry! Bottom line; have fun on your wedding day!
