A Casual Island Adventure Elopement with a Black Dress

Ben and Paige knew they wanted to go somewhere tropical for their March wedding, but aren’t really beach-wedding types. “We do enjoy hiking though, “ the bride told us, “so we settled on a trip to St John in the Virgin Islands as we knew we’d get what we wanted from there. We reached out to Island Mike and asked if he knew any cool trails that would take us somewhere beautiful and remote, and he delivered!”

As both Paige and Ben have been married before, they knew that they wanted their wedding to be true to them and nobody else. “We planned it together and made sure every decision was a reflection on who we are as a couple.”

Love is in the Air: An Adventurous Elopement on a Highline!

High school sweethearts Jacob and Chelsea were raised in Austin, Texas. Having such a long term relationship and bond means they have never-ending trust… and what better way to celebrate that love and trust than with an elopement on a highline which they set up at Pace Bend Park.

“We met in high school but we really connected when we came across each other swimming in Barton Springs” Chelsea told us. “Jacob was slacklining across the springs and I asked if I could try and if Jacob had any pointers for me on how to stand up on the line. Afterwards, Jacob was forced to memorise my number because neither of us had phones on us at the time nor did we have anything to write with. The stakes were high. Our first date was a slackline picnic at nearby Zilker Park and the rest is history!”

Secret & Scenic Colorado Elopement

As wanderers, Karie and Jared wanted to encompass their desire to explore the majestic mountains of Colorado for their September 2020 wedding. Their secret elopement was romantic, scenic, and most importantly – unique to them.

Katie wore a dusky blue Chantel Lauren dress with hiking boots, of course, and an aquamarine ring from Zacchariah Zypp & Co. Jared wore a Men’s Wearhouse suit and his ring was from Jewelfire Diamonds. Karie reminisced; “changing into a wedding dress and suit in the back of a rented SUV while hurricane-force winds threatened to steal anything that wasn’t nailed down kicked off our adventurous and unforgettable day.”

Colorado Hiking Elopement with Stunning Mountain Views

Emily and Matt knew from the beginning that neither of them wanted a traditional wedding. They wanted an epic experience that would stand out in their memories against all the other wedding they’ve been to over the years. “We love to travel and go on new adventures together so we kept that as our focus throughout planning,” Matt told us. “The only other non-negotiable was that our dog Rufus, the Best Dog of Honour, be there with us.”

Their original idea was to have a very small, simple ceremony with their most important people on a mountaintop in Washington State and then go head off on a hiking adventure. “We love to hike so we felt it was an appropriate wedding day activity.” However, once COVID took hold, they downsized and decided to elope closer to home. “We’re very lucky that there are plenty of mountain adventures to be had right here on our doorstep in Colorado!”

Two-Day, Intimate, Mountaintop Elopement

When Virginia and Cody had to postpone their big celebration, they were inspired to do the opposite of a traditional big ceremony. They wanted to take advantage of the perks of a small wedding and do things that you could not do with 150+ people to consider. Despite an intimate celebration, they still had two ceremonies; one for the just the bride and groom, and one for friends and family the day after.

As avid adventurers, the couple jumped at the chance to do things a little differently. For their first celebration, Virginia and Cody hiked three miles each way to their first look and personal vow ceremony in an alpine clearing just outside of Vail, Colarado. Afterwards, they were able to play around with photos in their finery and an amazing mountain backdrop.

Outdoor Adventure Enthusiasts’ Adventurous Elopement

The best thing about deciding to elope, is that it opens up so many possibilities of where and how you can do things. For Lisa and Bill, who were married in June, they chose the places that they feel happiest to be married – up on the cliffs in Big Sur overlooking the pacific ocean. They then had their portraits taken in a woodland, surround by groves of Redwood trees.

“As hikers and outdoor adventure enthusiasts, this was the perfect way for us to get married,” the bride writes, “Our love for nature and our planet was our inspiration; putting that designer dress to work and hiking to the most epic views was exactly our vision for that day.”

Intimate & Bohemian, Adventure Wedding

Jazmin and Nate’s romance developed over a couple of years of travel and adventure. They couldn’t think of any better way to celebrate their unity than by doing what they love and sharing it with a small group of close family and friends. 

“This was the most amazing experience we have yet to have together,” explained Jazmin. “We were able to create new memories by exploring Banff National Park & area for the first time with some very special people that flew from all over the US to see us exchange vows. Not to mention, we got to capture all of our first times biking up a mountain, the notorious Moraine Lake, and having the majestic location all to ourselves.”

Chris and Kate knew even before they got engaged that they didn’t want a big wedding; instead they wanted a day focused on them and their love, and to rid themselves of all the stress and craziness that comes with wedding planning! When Kate’s mum sadly passed a few weeks before she and Chris were due to get wed, it made them really take stock on what was important, and they ended up cancelling most things they had planned and just went with what felt right.

In May 2019, Kate and Chris rode a Triumph Bonneville from Boulder to the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado, stopping along route to take in the breathtaking surroundings and for photo ops. They were joined only by their dear friend and photographer, Amber, who had also been monumental in getting the couple together; it was only right that she was the one to photograph their day.

Lauren (from Fife in Scotland) and Matt met while Lauren was solo travelling in the USA in 2015 – they met in New York and bonded over music, live shows and wine on a Brooklyn brownstone rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline. They stayed in touch, talking everyday, after that and their love blossomed. He even sold his car to visit Scotland to meet her family and friends!

After doing long distance for a while. flying back and forth and having epic road trip adventures in both countries, Lauren was lucky enough to get a work visa and move to Philadelphia with her company for a year. In 2017, Matt proposed at the top of a mountain on one of their many road trips, and Lauren made the move to Brooklyn to be with him full time.

With their love of travel, it made perfect sense for them to elope – and get married at the top of another mountain – this time in Sedona, Arizona. They finished off with another road trip down the West Coast – catching places like Vegas, Bryce Canyon, LA and San Diego.

Playful Adventure Themed Wedding… with a Husky Ring Bearer!

Chris and Luana met completely through happenstance: Chris was on his way home from a pool party with friends, when they decided to stop for food. Luana happened to be working the counter that fateful evening, and the rest, they say, is history. They had their rehearsal dinner at the very same restaurant nearly 10 years later.

After Chris proposed at their annual trip to Coachella, the couple married at the Los Angeles River Centre and Gardens in an outdoor ceremony, with a reception at the same venue after.

The couple knew from the start that their rescue pup, Roky, would be involved in the ceremony, and he made the most of his moment in the spotlight by barking at the priest during their blessing! “Everyone else was quiet so he thought it was his turn to speak up and give us his own blessing” laughed Luana. “It was one of my favourite moments of the whole day”.
