Foggy Mt Hood Autumn Fairytale Wedding

Worried about rain on your wedding day? Well, don’t! Not only is it something you literally can not control, but Ashley and Andrew’s day proves that stereotypical ‘bad’ weather can make for the most beautiful images and special moments. They were married in October at Mt Hood in Oregon. They wanted their day to have a autumnal fairytale wedding with whimsical touches. They were inspired a lot by nature and the beauty of the area.

“I think there were a lot of things that made our wedding unique”, explained the bride. “We married a day before the equinox and the shift is season was extremely present (as I’m sure you could see by our foggy and rainy photos). We married on the side of a mountain overlooking a volcano (which unfortunately couldn’t be seen because of the fog). We were married on indigenous sacred land and when we arrived at the base of the mountain a Native tribe was having a ceremony asking for blessings from the earth for rain and protection for salmon during their travel in winter months.”

Heavenly Mountain Wedding in Queenstown

Holy forking shirtballs. Yep, I think the only explanation to these stunning, STUNNING images is that Erin and Steve got married in actual heaven… Because WOW. In reality, the wedding was held in Queenstown, New Zealand but same, same right?

They planned to have a laid back ceremony in the AirBnB that they rented to stay in, but when they got there is didn’t have the mountain views they desperately wanted. So, they spent the whole day before scouring local spots to find a new place! Luckily they found the perfect spot at the very last minute.

“Our passion for snowboarding and music has always been our glue”, Erin explained. “When we got engaged we knew we didn’t want to spend all our savings on a big elaborate wedding but wanted something memorable with our nearest and dearest. I love dark colours, skulls, coffins and anything gothic so I decided that’s the theme I wanted to roll with. With this in mind and our love for the mountains I suggested a winter wedding with a snowboarding honeymoon.”

Modern Celestial Elopement with Mid-Western Flare

So this is a shoot, not a real wedding, but if you’re planning to elope then I’m sure you’ll find some inspiration in these images. Put together by Arkansas photographer Laura Power, she wanted to create something different to all the more traditional weddings she sees day in day out.

“Traditional weddings are still the upmost popular thing here in Arkansas”, she writes. “I wanted to bring in elements that you wouldn’t normally see on the side of a mountain. Being from the Midwest typically means a black tux, a white ballgown and weddings held in barns. The inspiration behind this shoot was to give Arkansas a fresh modern take on intimate weddings and elopements. Specifically the hand-embellished pearl cape, short slip dress and gold booties paired with the fringe leather vintage vest.”

Romantic & Intimate Elopement on a Sierra Nevada Mountaintop

This wedding is exactly what you’d expect if two beautiful ski and snowboarding instructors met on the top of a mountain and fell in love. And that’s what happened! Germán and Vero met in a cable car on a trip up to the top of the mountain, and so years later, they decided to say their I dos at the very same spot. SWOON.

“After a while and many adventures together, distilling love and happiness without parallel, Vero declared her love to to me”, Germán told us. “And we promised that our wedding would be such a wonderful adventure, and we would unite together, and surrounded by the most important guest in our day… Sierra Nevada, at 3000 metres high, where it all began.”

Red Rock Roadtrip Elopement – with Irn Bru toast!

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.

Snowy Rock n Roll Meets Game of Thrones Mountaintop Elopement in New Zealand!

If this elopement had a soundtrack, it’d be a very emotional rendition of You Take My Breath Away mixed with the Game of Thrones theme tune. Jess and Sam’s beautiful wedding is a genuine breath-taker, as they got married at Glendhu Bay Lookout, which looks over the Mount Aspiring National Park. Fittingly, I am now aspiring to get to this national park, stat. Then, they took a helicopter ride to Fog Peak and, well, the photos speak for themselves.

“We’ve never been fans of large, traditional style weddings so we’ve always wanted to do something a little different from the norm,” Jess says. “We also fell in love with New Zealand and the beautiful landscapes when we did a road trip around the country in 2017. After considering different types of weddings to have at home in Australia with friends and family, we decided that it wasn’t ‘us’, and that we had to do what made us happy. We both wholeheartedly agreed that we wanted to have an intimate wedding and get married amongst the stunning scenery in NZ!”
