What an Adventure Elopement Looks Like | Yolie and Stephen

"This gallery features an epic, multi-day Adventure Elopement centered in Kanab, Utah with Yolie & Stephen. Yolie & Stephen, based in Florida, knew they wanted a Southern Utah Adventure Elopement but had no idea where to begin-- so they contacted us. Our first objective was to establish a home base which ended up being at the most amazing Airbnb in Kanab, Utah." - Paul & Katie ShutterFreek

Yolie and Stephen picked Kanab for their elopement and honeymoon for its "wide open spaces, epic scenery and proximity to national and state parks".  They loved the small town the area and-- of course-- the delicious restaurants.

Their adventure all started with a sweet proposal in White Pocket, which was featured here.

She said "Yes" and they kissed in front of a pink sunset.  Together, Yolie and Stephen walked back down the rocks, engaged and ready for the next step.  After settling into their venue at Quiet Shelters Adobe Retreat, they separated briefly to prepare their vows to one another.  Being a micro wedding, the venue's intimate atmosphere couldn't have been more perfect.

Within the peaks of Kanab, standing upon a patterned rug and holding hands with the love of their life, Yolie and Stephen said "I do" in one of the most beautiful areas in Utah.  Their photographers, Paul & Katie of ShutterFreek, then took them around for some Just Married shots to celebrate their elopement.

We're just in awe of all the beautiful little touches that made this whole adventure a dream to behold.  This is why we love featuring destination weddings and elopements in the Southwest.
