Let me start off by saying, elopements are my ABSOLUTE favorite! Jennifer and James decided that Colorado was the place they wanted to come get married (on their 3 year anniversary!) We planned for weeks, and decided on the gorgeous Bear and Dream Lake trail. There aren't words that describe the landscape, it literally takes my breath away.
We awed while hiking, looking at the perfect blue sky and 60 degree weather in Rocky Mountain National Park. The phrase, "if you don't like the weather in Colorado, just wait 20 minutes," was definitely true this Tuesday. The day prior it was cold, and the weekend before it was a "bomb cyclone." Needless to say, they got super lucky.
The two of them have this love and respect for each other that is effortless. They just stare at each other with kindness in their smiles, and walk along each other like they've already done it for 50 years. When I asked them to kiss and interact, they just melted together. Both fearlessly running across the frozen lakes, climbing rocks, and having snowball fights. They are just so much fun!
They travelled all the way from Shreveport, LA and met while both a part of a soccer team. She is a cardiology nurse, and he is a part of the Army Reserves. He proposed on Valentine's Day and the rest is history! I adored each second, getting to hear about thier love and see this Colorado view.
Congratulations again, you two!
