Jessica and Nick were married in an intimate mountain and lake view elopement in at sunset on a gorgeous August evening. Traveling from Nebraska to elope in Colorado, they wanted a backdrop like nothing they could find in their home state.

After discussion of the possible venue options that offered both lake and mountain views for their elopement, Jessica and Nick decided on Grand Lake. A small town located on the west end of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake offers lake and mountain views to die for PLUS we know of a venue there that allows us to pull a permit for FREE!


Jessica handled her own flowers and hair and makeup up--asking us to help them with an officiant, photographer and videographer.
