Kevin and Elizabeth Elope in Aspen

By Maureen Thomson | Aspen Elopement

Oct 20

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 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.
