Coming from Oklahoma for a June wedding, high school sweethearts Jayden and Tyler didn't know a whole lot about eloping in Colorado. (Fortunately--we do!) They just knew they wanted a gorgeous mountain backdrop and fabulous photos to showcase the event.
It Pays to be Flexible when Eloping in Colorado
Most couples think "mountains" over "lakes" when it comes to eloping in Colorado, but the fact is, there are many gorgeous alpine lakes once you get into the high country. Jayden and Tyler originally choose a different site than the one at which they were married. Their original site was higher in the mountains and accessible only in summer. And in Colorado, sometimes Mother Nature decides summer is going to come a bit later than expected. Their original site was snowbound until later in June.
So, we went with Plan B. (We always have a Plan B!!!)
As it turns out, they didn't have to sacrifice anything by going with their alternate option. The day was gorgeous and the Colorado sun on the snow-capped mountains and lake was breathtaking.
These two were naturals in front of the camera. They look like they belong in a glossy bridal magazine!
