Windy Whispering Oaks Moab Elopement

Bri and Levi are an incredible couple from the Midwest who knew for years that Moab was the place they wanted to get married! Over a year of planning can't eliminate the chance of poor weather on your wedding day. This was the case for Bri and Levi. Their beautifully planned windy Whispering Oaks Moab elopement dawned with lots of sun, but even more wind. The entire day they were met with the fiercest wind that Nicole Aston, their photographer, had ever encountered in her 13 years. They had gusts over 35 MPH blowing them every which way. That made it hard to stand up, hear each other, or even keep their eyes open. However, Bri and Levi persevered despite the difficult conditions, and the results are Moab-made magic!

Their Elopement day

Bri and Levi chose to include their immediate families for their day. They gathered everyone at a lodge at Whispering Oaks venue for a few days before their wedding so they had time to play!

Whispering Oaks is an incredible venue in Moab. It gives you the best of Utah - the deserts and the mountains. Located in Moab's La Sal Mountain range, Bri and Levi were married amongst the pines. There was even quite a bit of very late spring snow!

After the ceremony, they took off for the parks, hitting Arches National Park before heading over to the cliffs at Dead Horse Point to catch the sunset. Bri and Levi are such a beautiful couple, and somehow made those insane winds look so good- you can't even tell they were fighting for their lives out there!

After taking photos at the parks, they traveled to Whispering Oaks for a reception with their family! The last of the sunset gave them such a show that they just had to pull over and take a few photos!

Back at the family lodge, they shared dinner with heaping sides of love and laughter. An elopement can be anything you want it to be, including sharing the traditions going back generations. Some they participated in were cutting a cake, sharing a first dance, and hearing speeches from their loved ones.
