Don't miss the black gown and ski lift ride at this crisp winter elopement

Brynn and Stephen traveled from Houston, TX to Winter Park, CO to elope on a mountaintop. It was about 15 degrees on the top of the mountain and windy! But it was clear that they were feeling no pain in the frigid temps based on their laughs. They had an intimate ceremony overlooking the mountains after a ride up on the ski lift. After they made it official, they ran inside to warm up and cut some cake. Just wait until you see Brynn's amazing black gown and Stephen's cowboy details…

They shared a love for the mountains of Colorado, so it was only natural that when plans to hold a big wedding bash in Kentucky fell through, they decided to live out another dream of having an intimate wedding with some serious Sound of Music scenery. Waking up to rainy dawn in Estes Park, Ali and Rachel began a slow morning of wedding prep. They did what we wish every couple would do, enjoyed their day and lived their moments. There was Elk watching, breakfast, hiking, and attempts to stave off the rain with "Isn't it Ironic" lyrics.

Velvet, faux fur, and waterfalls at this Franklin Falls wintry elopement inspiration
