How Did You Meet? When Did You Know it was Meant to Be?

C: Will and I met through mutual friends. He started following me on twitter and then came up to me in my favorite bar in Athens, Georgia, Generals, and asked, “Are you Callie Holloway?” That's where it all really started. I knew I was going to marry Will when I saw him for the first time. 

W: I knew I was going to marry Callie as we started getting to know one another more and getting serious.

Why Did You Choose to Elope? Why That Location?

We chose to elope because we feel it is so different than what we would do. Family and friends thought we would have a 400-person wedding, but we chose otherwise. Very few family and friends knew we were going to Colorado to get married! We visited Colorado with my sister and her husband three years ago, and Will and I fell in love with Silverthorne and the mountains. It’s our favorite place to visit so we thought, "Why not go get married in 20 degree weather with the beautiful mountains!?"

What was your favorite part of the wedding day? Was it different for each of you?

My favorite part of our wedding day was the intimacy part of it all. It was literally just me and Will taking a huge step in our relationship with just each other. Looking back we would do it over and over again. We find ourselves constantly reminiscing on that cold and beautiful Monday! Our favorite part is the same!

Emily is THE best. She will give multiple resources and references for you to use when planning your elopement. Her photography skills were awesome as well and made us feel very comfortable. She gave options and planned ahead in case of weather conditions and was prompt in getting our pictures returned. I would recommend Summit Mountain Weddings a million times over. Thank you Emily for this great service and your hard work!
