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.

A Punk Rock Pandemic Wedding On a Budget

Even though they had a budget of only €3,500 and a pandemic to contend with, Demi and Eddie pulled out all the creative stops to make their July wedding the punk rock party of their dreams! Both working in the entertainment industry meant they were able to call in favours for a lot of things, their friend who owned the venue they chose gave them a great deal and the photos and video were also gifted by friends.

They live and were married in the French Alps and although some of their loved ones couldn’t make the trip (including all of Demi’s family!) they were really happy with the day they had. And hey, now they have the perfect excuse to have another party next year!

A Sunrise Family Hike with a Mountaintop Elopement Ceremony

Nakean and Amanda, who both have a children from previous relationships, met online and bonded immediately due to their mutual love of outdoor adventuring. Many of their early dates were doing something adventurous – from hiking to snowshoeing – so, when the decided to marry in August, having an outdoor adventure elopement was the prefect choice. They decided on an early morning hike, with their kids in tow, culminating with a mountaintop elopement as the sun rose.

Amanda started getting ready at 2:30am, they began their assent at 4:30am and the ceremony kicked off just as the sun was rising above the mountains. “Since we both had a love for the mountains, we definitely knew we wanted an outdoor/mountain themed wedding”, the bride told us. “I had been married previously and already had the big church/reception wedding and that was something Nakean never wanted. We fell in love in the mountains and couldn’t think of a more perfect place to start this next adventure.”

Talk about a breathtaking ceremony location – Genevieve and Joseph made the journey from Denver to Colorado to celebrate their wedding day with eight of their closest family members in the beautiful mountains between Durango and Silverton, Colorado. A few months prior, Genevieve contacted Love Untamed Collective inquiring about planning intimate wedding possibilities. Meg from the company had a breathtaking location in mind and won Genevieve and Joseph over with her ideas that matched what they envisioned for their special day. 

Joseph said, “We’ve always loved the natural beauty and stillness of the mountains, overlooking the landscape and being close to the vastness of the sky was the perfect place for our purest love for each other to culminate. I’ll never forget turning around to see Genevieve before we were married, Genevieve is absolutely gorgeous and it felt like a fairytale moment for the both of us. Being married to your dream girl and best friend is the most wonderful thing!”

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.”
