Self-Solemnised Elopement in The Colorado Mountains

Jordan and Isaiah wanted an intimate wedding. Having met very young and not realised the crushes that they had on each other for many years, they reunited and fell in love over a decade later. Their elopement was an adventure, with no traditional wedding planning.

They chose to self-solemnise their ceremony too, which means they didn’t have an officiant. This is actually legally recognised in in Colorado too making it the perfect extra-intimate choice!

“We wanted to have time together, just us. We’re from and live in Ohio so we wanted an escape and both have love for the mountains. We had our first look and setup a picnic in the woods with pizza and beer. We then self-solemnised (married without an officiant) in the mountains and hiked to a explore a cave and finished off our day dancing in the rain to our wedding song Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton.”

Hawaiian Adventure Helicopter Ride Celebrates an Oahu Elopement

Ditching a big wedding in favour of a small celebration with just the two of them present, Andrea and Jason wanted to do something special. They chose a tiny ceremony, before heading up in a rainbow-coloured helicopter for a bird’s eye view of the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

With Covid scuppering their wedding plans, Andrea and Jason just weren’t feeling the ‘big-wedding-day’ vibes. They thought a helicopter ride and a champagne toast would be a unique way to adventure together and celebrate. With no friends or family present, they still found a way of incorporating them into their day.

Andrea told us, “The vows were more emotional than either of us anticipated. My best friends made us a wedding playlist on Spotify that we had in the background. We also woke up to beautiful weather and an amazing fruit and champagne basket sent from friends.”

Planning a destination wedding from afar can be a complicated operation. It takes a clear vision and plenty of trust in your venue and wedding planner. In fact Ashley and Kamal hadn’t even visited their wedding venue before the day they got married. They ditched anything traditional that they didn’t like, and pulled inspiration from the dark and rich autumnal colours of the season, pairing that with the traditional glitz and glamour of vintage Las Vegas.

With a small, intimate ceremony at the Park MGM, they filled it full of all the things they loved, including a ring-warming ceremony. Ashley explained, “Our rings were passed through the attendees for them to put their blessings, prayers, warm thoughts and well wishes into (whatever speaks to them) before coming back to us for the ring exchange.” Although the guest list was small, the couple ensured friends and family around the world could witness their vows, livestreaming the event to watch from home.
