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.”

Goth Lovers Sunset Mountaintop Elopement

Like a lot of couples last year, Dacey and Josh decided to push their large celebration until it was safe for everyone, but as they really wanted to get married on Halloween, they decided to elope with just their wedding party instead. “We really wanted to get married on Halloween as it was the first one with Blue Moon in around 70 years. It upset some family, but it also meant I was able to have my best friend with me before she moved abroad,” the bride told us. “In the end we knew we made the right choice.”

Choosing a cabin in Fairplay, Colorado as their base, the couple formed their aesthetics around Persephone in the Underworld – a little bit spooky, a lot beautiful, and above all else – ’till death do us part! Dacey chose a black lace gown from JJ’s House, a steal because it wasn’t a traditional wedding dress, and paired it with an ethereal halo crown from Carbickova Crowns.

A Mountaintop COVID Elopement with Rock n Roll Touches

Chase and Elle met in the beginning of 2016, bonding over their love of rock music at their local gym. Ironically, they discovered that they were both due to attend the heavy-metal festival Carolina Rebellion early that summer, both with their dads, as they did every year. They decided their first ‘outing’ was to meet up at the festival… with their Dads. Well if that date can go well, you know you’re onto a winner, so the rest, as they say, was history! 

When it came to planning their 2020 wedding, like many of you, they decided to cancel their big, 100+ guest wedding and elope with immediate family instead. “It was the best decision we made!” the bride told us. “The gravity of the year really made us consider what was important – we wanted to have a personal and intimate elopement that celebrated our future together through these unforeseen times.”

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.”

Kristi and Doug met through Kristi’s best friend Amanda. Doug called Kirsti his unicorn because he thought she was a mythical creature that he’d never be able to have, but luckily she totally fell in love with him too! Their wedding theme was nautical, with a vintage classic feel, and they were inspired by anchors, rope and cool classic colours.

Their wedding ceremony was held at 7,500 feet overlooking the Lake Tahoe Mountains and Carson Valley. “The whole day was perfect, but our favourite part was the ceremony,” began Kristi. “It was so emotional and extremely intimate.
