Utah Mountains Elopement: Patrick & Trisha

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!”
