Hi there and welcome to my blog! Here in this little slice of the internet you will find recent posts from elopements and intimate weddings that I have photographed. Occasionally I will also post a few pictures from my travels and mountains adventures with my husband. This is a great place to dig through the archives and look for locations, inspiration and ideas for your wedding. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! :)

Winter Elopement in Breckenridge {Billy + Michelle}

Happy New Year my friends! What better way to start 2017 than to elope in the winter wonderland that is Colorado right now. We’ve been getting hit with consecutive snowstorms lately and the mountains have had several feet of snow fall just in the last few days. It’s been glorious (well, the driving conditions haven’t been great, but it sure does make for pretty pictures!). I absolutely can’t get enough of winter, especially winter in the mountains surrounding Breckenridge. Goodness, it is so breathtakingly beautiful here! Just 24 hours before we got there, Breckenridge received about 2 feet of soft fluffy powder. The trees were covered in white snow and the entire area had a fresh blanket of smooth white snow. It was absolutely gorgeous!

Billy and Michelle thought eloping in the snow sounded like the perfect way to start the New Year and their marriage, so that’s exactly what they did! There were a few minor bumps in the road along the way, like officiants cancelling last-minute, a little altitude sickness and Michelle possibly needing a tetanus shot after pinning Billy’s boutonniere (ack!). But all in all, they had a fun day in the snowy mountains of Breckenridge. Michelle and Billy are going to spend the rest of their time in Colorado skiing at Breck, which sounds like the perfect honeymoon to me. I was so happy to be a part of their big day, congrats guys! 🙂
