Non-Traditional Artists Bluff Mountain Elopement

Sarah and Chris had the most amazing elopement at Artists Bluff in New Hampshire last summer, and despite all the challenges that 2020 threw their way, they worked their personal styles into the most fun, laid-back and truly perfect-for-them day. Sarah wore a sheer black Lulu’s dress, Chris had a floral suit which he found on Amazon and they rocked matching Vans.

“We are super non-traditional people, so we just went with everything we loved, and what made us,” Sarah said. “It ended up being a mix of styles and our inspiration was literally just doing it in our own way.”

Tonal & Cosy Mt. Rainier A-Frame Elopement

Brittany and Joseph didn’t really set a budget for their September elopement, but as soon as they found their photographer, Henry Tieu, on Pinterest, they decided they would spend whatever it cost to have him shoot the day. Keeping things small and COVID-safe kept all the other costs down anyway. They also hired Rain and Pines to help organise the day, do the décor and officiant the ceremony.

The ceremony was held in cute and cosy A-frame Cabin in Packwood, Washington. Located next to a riverbed and about 30 minutes from Mount Rainer, it was a truly idyllic spot for such an intimate 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.

We fell in love in the mountains and couldn’t think of a more perfect place to start this next adventure.”
