There is just something so peaceful and magical about wintertime in Colorado. There is something equally magical about having your elopement ceremony in the winter. It’s quiet, peaceful and still as layers of snow build and build. Everything is so pristine and white. The forest is just a little quieter. The snow falls softly. Winter truly is my favorite time of year! Rocky Mountain National Park tends to be less crowded December through April. Nature seems to breathe a collective sigh of relief as people opt to stay home in their warm houses.
Only a few hardy souls (like Miranda and Ryan!) are brave enough to venture out and elope in the snow and cold temperatures. My winter elopement clients all seem to have a little something extra about them that I just adore. They are a little less fearful, a little more adventurous, and they are always willing to embrace whatever the weather might have in store for them….including snow storms 🙂
Miranda and Ryan eloped in the middle of a beautiful winter snow storm in Rocky Mountain National Park. They walked out onto a frozen lake as snowflakes swirled around and they committed the rest of their lives to each other with an exchange of vows and rings. They did such a great job at braving the cold, I was so impressed with how tough they were! We spent our time laughing, admiring the snow and relishing the fact that it seemed we had all of Rocky Mountain National Park to ourselves. Congratulations Miranda and Ryan!
