Kevin and Elizabeth planned to have a small ceremony at Maroon Bells when they eloped in October. Unfortunately, the delayed snowfall and glorious autumn weather kept the roads packed with bumper to bumper tourist traffic. A wedding at Maroon Bells wasn't going to happen that day.
Clear weather and manageable traffic are never guaranteed, so as with all good wedding planning, I had a Plan B in mind for the couple.
A short detour led us to a lovely park near Aspen that still offered fantastic views of the mountains.as well as a ceremony setting nestled among the lingering gold of the aspens..
A short-lived shower didn't dampen the mood for this party. Maybe the rain brought Kevin and Elizabeth a little extra good luck!
Elizabeth carried a bouquet of succulents, ranunculus, and peonies in white and pastel varieties. It complimented the detailing on her dress beautifully.
