Camping Elopement in Grand Lake, Colorado

Dani and Randall wanted the best of both worlds with an elopement and a whole wedding, so they decided to have both by having a camping elopement in Grand Lake, Colorado.

The day started with their first look at the trailhead, and Dani being walked down the "aisle" by her dad. After their first look, the two of them went on a short hike to a private location. While there they said their vows and shared emotional moments as they traded their handkerchief back and forth to wipe their eyes.

After signing the marriage license, they celebrated with a bottle of real champagne from their trip to France together.

To bring the rest of the wedding party back together, they walked through a receiving line of bubbles from all their friends and family. Dani's sister, uncle, and cousin played music for the reception and Dani and Randall had an impromptu first dance. The rest of the day was full of friends and family chatting, hanging out, canoeing, roasting s'mores, and loving on the new couple.
