Kristen and Josh wanted an intimate day that focused on each other. So they chose to have an adventurous jeep elopement in Ouray, Colorado. The San Juan mountains make the perfect backdrop for an adventurous getaway with miles of rugged mountains to explore.
We met in Ouray and drove into the mountains, passing waterfalls and breathtaking views. Then, with the jeep as a barrier, Kristen slipped into her dress, with Jason getting ready on the other side. They had a dreamy first look at the top of the mountain. From the bride: “My favorite moment was our first look. It made everything feel so real and made for a special moment!“
They exchanged rings and hand-written vows nestled in the mountain basin at 12,500ft. After the ceremony, they popped champagne and signed their marriage license on the hood of the jeep. Simple and classic! They had their first dance as the sun began to set behind the mountains. Dancing in the golden light while soaking in all the love from the day.
We ended the day with an intimate picnic with a 1-tier cake that made the journey with us. After that, we packed the jeep and headed down the mountain with wind-blown hair and happy hearts. The San Juan Mountains made the perfect backdrop for their adventurous jeep elopement in Ouray. With jaw-dropping views and feeling on top of the world, I can’t think of a better wedding adventure!
