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.”
