Erin and Jay’s winter Vail elopement was a winter wonderland! These two came from out of state to get married at a location where they had one of their first dates. The ceremony by the creek near The Marriott was intimate, emotional, and beautiful. I think a winter Vail elopement is always a good idea!
The chilly rain soon turned into snow as we we jumped on the gondola and headed up to the top of Vail Mountain. It was a complete white-out up there. It was absolutely gorgeous! It’s very rare that I get to photograph weddings with snow! (I KNOW CRAZY RIGHT? Since I live in Colorado.) But not many people plan a winter wedding. And actually—this wasn’t a winter wedding either. Haha! This was in April. But Colorado weather is unpredictable.
We kindly asked some fisherman in the creek to move so that they wouldn’t be in the background of our photos. I think the spot they picked was gorgeous. You could see the mountains and it was private enough with the trees. I LOVE intimate, standing ceremonies. I was able to circle the group for photos. Erin’s kids were tearing up. It was so cute. Now that’s a Vail bride! I love everything. The dress, the coat, the bouquet. She looks stunning!I just freaking love that pine cone in the boutonnière. What a cool thing to be a part of such an intimate, loving celebration. While it rained, we snuck under an awning in Lions Head (Near Vail Village).
If big weddings aren’t your thing and you want to celebrate your wedding with a close group of friends and families, let’s chat! I’d love to share my elopement photography pricing with you. (And good news! It’s not as expensive as full wedding photography is.) Also, I travel anywhere in the world for elopements.
