Weathering the Storm of a Bryce Canyon Elopement

Weathering the Storm of a Bryce Canyon Elopement

Ashe and Matt always wanted to experience Utah -- so they decided to move up their elopement plans a couple of years and get hitched in Bryce Canyon this March. They really wanted to value the time with just the two of them and spent the majority of their day that way.

A Storm Blows In

The morning of their elopement, we woke up to some unexpected winter weather that changed the timeline of their day, but turned out beautifully chaotic with the snow flurries.

The Next Morning

They spent the morning getting ready together and two of Ashe's closest friends helped dress her in the macramé dress. Then, they spent the next few hours toughing out the snow and seeing home truly wonderful places in the park. They decided to move their ceremony inside because of the declining weather, which turned out the best for the wedding party and was a great place for them to all hang out.

A wedding With Loved Ones

Ashe and Matt were officiated by their close friend and roommate, celebrated with drinks and their absolute favorite cakes in the world, and of course -- hung out with family the rest of the night.

Just Married

We snuck out at blue hour to play in the snow a bit before coming back and eating dinner together.

Because of the cold weather, they opted for a "day after" shoot in the park as husband and wife. We explored down the Navajo Trail and it turned out to be warm, sunny day where the two of them could cherish the start of their marriage.

A memorable Start...

Although it wasn't their first plan of how their elopement day would go, they both had the time of their lives together by getting married in a snow storm with their closest friends and family. It was a truly memorable way to start off their lives together!
