Surprise Elopement with Family in Capitol Reef

Surprise Elopement with Family in Capitol Reef

Amid the rugged beauty of Southern Utah's red rocks, Amy and Kendal turned a summer vacation road trip with their kids, into the ultimate declaration of love: a surprise elopement with family in Capitol Reef! On July 1, (the first anniversary) of their engagement, they shared their vows with the most breathtaking backdrop nature could offer.

The desert called, and they answered—traveling off-road to a special spot in Capitol Reef that few will tread. The ceremony was as unique as their love, minimalistic with a touch of personal tradition; handfasting cords of each person's favorite color, symbolizing the strengths each brings, and incorporating their children into an unforgettable ceremony of unity. It was the perfect way to celebrate their bond and the family they've created.

The magic of this day is found in the simplicity—their heartfelt promise resonating in the stillness of the desert, with their kids by their side and the wild desert flora in Amy's handpicked bouquet, they started a new chapter in the same spirit of adventure that brought them together.

Here’s to a lifetime of adventures together, love that's wild, free, and beautifully unscripted!
