Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement
Today's post is all about Lindsay + James: Colorado Elopement to Rocky Mountain National Park with images courtesy of Jess Dalton Photography. The classic mountain backdrop is excellent for Colorado weddings, and this couple chose to walk outside near a tree to hold their outdoor ceremony. A small group of family friends joined them on a gorgeous clear day with just a few clouds in the sky.
Those are the kinds of days where you hope for no rain, and if the shower pass you, you're lucky. More than likely it will rain at some point during the day, and I'll be the first one to tell you, if you don't know already, that it rains almost every afternoon in the high mountains. Good thing the storms are usually fast-moving and the sun could be back out in a matter of minutes. Or, maybe not. Either way, the show must go on, so just be prepared for inclement mountain weather. Have a backup plan.
Elope to the Colorado Rocky Mountains

Lindsay & James’ wedding day was incredibly beautiful, intimate, and full of DIY details! They were married with their immediate family alongside them at Upper Beaver Meadows in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a dream come true! We couldn’t have asked for a better day or couple. And their families are amazing!
They welcomed us warmly and made us feel like a part of the family from the first hello. We are overjoyed and honored to have photographed such a special moment for not only our couple, but for their families as well.There were quite a few special DIY details that really pulled their day all together. Lindsay’s Mom made her veil.
Zach and I were completely blown away at the amount of detail and just how beautifully it tied into her dress. James’ brother, Chris, was the officiant and his other brother, Danny, read verses. How special for the couple to be able to have their siblings included in this moment. I’m not sure there was a dry eye in the bunch after their ceremony!
And let’s not forget about the gorgeous bouquet and boutonniere… all the flowers were selected by the bride. Once the flowers were chosen, they were able to create the amazing pieces below. Again, we were just blown away. I love the amount of detail and yet simplicity that went into helping tell their love story.
