Colorado Elopement | Denver Wedding Photographer and Videographer
I first met Stephanie and Brad back in April, when I had the pleasure of meeting them at Lookout Mountain for their engagement session. We had such a wonderful morning exploring the area and getting to know each other.
They met like many couples do these days – on a dating app. While this part may not be the romantic story many girls grew up thinking about, Brad knew from the start that Stephanie was the one for him.
Stephanie admitted that, “I took a little more time to warm up, but knew that he was a winner when I realized that I could always be myself around him and that he always cared so much about my happiness! He has never wavered in his affection and is such a steady, loving person that I rely on a lot!”
Together, they are an adventurous couple. They love to try new restaurants around town and go hiking or camping as much as they can fit into their schedule. This is part of why Lookout Mountain was such a perfect place for their engagement session. As they are not from Colorado, I suggested this location once they told me about their love of the outdoors and hiking. It is a beautiful place with several hiking trails around it to explore.
These two lovelies got engaged on New Years Eve of 2018. Brad had planned a fun evening dining out with their friends and when they came home, Stephanie walked in to see candles and flowers everywhere. He had prepared a letter for her where the end was asking her to marry him!
How sweet is that?!
The day of their wedding could not have been more perfect. The August Colorado weather cooperated wonderfully, and their mountain elopement location was filled with a hundred or more sweet chipmunks running all around.
The bride had her Grandmother, Oma and Mother help her get ready. Each had brought their wedding dresses, which was such a quaint and sentimental touch to the entire day.
It was important to them to have a special moment to themselves. They chose to privately exchange vows at Lake Dillon. No one was invited, those vows were for each other’s ears only. Brad even cried. It was perfectly sweet and intimate.
The ceremony afterword was at Sapphire Point with a stunning view. They said separate vows for their closest friends and family. Stephanie was all smiles throughout the day, no doubt taking in every moment.
The reception that followed was just as intimate and lovely. They chose to rent a home nearby so they could have a sweet backyard reception catered with Mexican food. It was a charming ending to a magnificent Colorado summer mountain wedding.
Congratulations and good luck to Stephanie and Brad on their next adventures together.
