Patrick and Trisha eloped in Utah, just off the Alpine Loop Road, in Provo Canyon above the Sundance Resort. They had just a few family members in attendance and the bride wore a short lace dress from H&M.
“The inspiration for our wedding was just a desire for a day centered on our union”, explained Trisha. “We just wanted to celebrate our love with a few members of our family! Our decision to elope is definitely what made our wedding unique. Marrying up in the mountains with a small intimate group made it particularly special. And keeping it a secret from most of our friends and relatives made it exciting too!”
“I knew I didn’t want a typical wedding dress, and when I saw the cute, short number at H&M, I knew that was it! It matched my more alternative look and really fit the vibe of the mountain elopement.”
“Our favorite part of the day was the ceremony in the aspen grove”, she concluded. “It was beautiful and intimate. We love spending time in the Utah mountains, so to be married there was wonderful. Patrick and I have been telling everyone to just elope! It makes for a wonderfully stress-free day. But if that is not possible, we’d advise people to schedule the reception for a different day than the ceremony. Then you can just focus on each other and the moment, with no worries!”

Tattooed and Black Themed Elopement in Melbourne: Rob & Edie
November 24, 2014
Now this, my friends, is what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about. It's not about flowers, or favours or a fancy wedding venue. It's not about what you wear, who your bridesmaids are or what theme you have. Being a Rock n Roll bride is about doing your own thing, marching to your own beat, and saying "I do" in a way that feels right for the two of you. That's exactly what Rob and Edie did which is why I'm so excited to share their wedding with you today.
A DIY Wedding with a Mountaintop View: Larry & Chelsea
December 21, 2011
Have you ever seen anything as beautiful as Larry & Chelsea's mountaintop wedding? Just look at that view! The lucky couple we're married at the bride's parents home (OK I'm now officially jealous) and although it doesn't look like it, they had a small budget to work with.
"Although we had financial limits, hand making everything not only saved us money, but it made everything much more personal and special," Chelsea told me. "I will cherish every hilarious moment I spent crafting and to finally see all our hard work come together was awesome. I never thought I could pull it off and I got it all done in time and I am damn proud of myself!! The essential item to a DIY wedding? Get a dang glue gun girl...Oh and start early!!!"
The bride wore two dresses, the first, from David's Bridal for the ceremony, and the second, a one of a kind custom made dress by Deborah Lindquist.
