Eli + Hannah are from Arkansas and inquired with me about if it is possible to have 20 of their closest family and friends join them for a mountain top elopement in Colorado. OF COURSE my immediate answer was UHMMM ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY.
Hannah found the most quaint A-frame overlooking the rocky mountain scenes of Breckenridge, CO. I found them the perfect mountain top that involved a short hike to 360 views of alpine mountain views :’ ). This location is a favorite because you don’t need any permits when you have 30 people or less present for your elopement.
The only thing about eloping on a mountain top in February is the unpredictable weather patterns. We got to know the truth of this a little too well during Eli + Hannah’s ceremony haha! The weather forecast was partly cloudy and 24 degrees on the mountain top. Cold, but great weather for February!
But when we arrived a storm was quickly rolling in out of nowhere. It went from 25 degrees and sunny to negative 15 degrees and the start of a snow storm within 20 minutes 😄
We still got the ceremony in, then safely and quickly made our way back down the mountain and finished up all the pictures back at their a-frame :’ )
Something everyone can learn from Hannah + Eli: intentional moments with family will always win over fancy arrangements and luxury pieces. The love that flowed through this intimate setting was unmatched.
