Adventure Elopement in the San Juan Mountains

As the sun began to paint the Earth in shades of gold, Vanessa and Garrett prepared for their adventure elopement in the San Juan Mountains. You could feel the anticipation as they changed into their wedding attire outside their Jeep. 

Dogs During Adventure Elopements

In the peaceful scene of the mountains with their two best fluffy dogs, Keppler and Duke, these hiking enthusiasts shared a first look they’ll never forget. The setting was a picturesque alpine lake. Its crystal-clear waters mirrored the grandeur of the mountains. Bringing dogs to an elopement might seem overwhelming, but when your dogs are family and love the outdoors, it’s a perfect fit!

Vows, Kayaks, and Lanterns

Standing on a solitary rock, just big enough for the two of them and their dogs, they exchanged vows that were as unshakable as the towering peaks around them. With their "I dos" hanging in the air, Garrett brought out the kayaks. The mountains, the lake, and the love that bound them created a masterpiece that Mother Nature herself would have applauded.

After their intimate ceremony in the San Juan Mountains, the two explored the area until they found a secluded space to serve as their next backdrop. Nestled next to a turquoise lake, they signed their marriage licenses, opened some brewskis, and enjoyed their cake on a cozy blanket.

As the sunset approached, it cast another warm glow over the land. It was the perfect chance for the to wander through the hills with lanterns in hand and their faithful fur babies close behind. For them, it's one of the most beautiful areas in Colorado! They spent their vacation exploring this area of Colorado often, so naturally, it ended up being the place they chose to elope.
