Dylan + Kelsey Autumn Crested Butte Elopement

Dylan and Kelsey had originally planned on having a big wedding, but when those plans seemed like they might not happen because of covid, they decided to elope, just the two of them and their adorable dog, Koda.

Prior to their elopement day, we worked together to plan their private vows location and the best timing for lighting, etc. to make their day in the majestic mountains of Crested Butte absolutely perfect! They planned so many special details even though it was just the two of them. Their elopement was a perfect example of just how unique and YOU an elopement can be.

In my opinion, it could not have been more perfect! I felt so honored to be the one to quietly witness and photograph their incredibly sweet and authentic vow exchange, exchanging of rings, their first dance, the cutting of the cake, and popping a bottle of champagne. After the ceremony we went 4-wheeling and I photographed them in several of my favorite spots. They chose some epic spots too. I think we ended up with some pretty spectacular photos of their day.

Most-importantly, they were thrilled with their photos which makes my heart so happy!

    I love Crested Butte ! This is so awesome, people always freak out when they learn that your dog can sign as a witness on your marriage license in CO.

    Crested Butte might be the most gorgeous spot in the fall in Colorado. What a perfect Crested Butte Elopement these two had and one amazing Colorado adventure. You just can’t go wrong with this time of year in this gorgeous state!
