We started our adventure before the sun came up and drove up into the mountains underneath the stars, making our way to the top of the mountain. One of my favorite things about sunrise elopements is you are usually the only ones around and up for miles! They both got ready in the back of the car, each one taking their turn so they could still have a special first-look moment where Carly presented Adam with a special gift she made for him.

Standing at the edge of a cliff with sweeping views of the rugged mountains, Carly and Adam exchanged vows with the pristine wilderness and their two loyal pups, Barkley and Aspen, as witnesses.

Afterward, Carly and Adam enjoyed a breakfast picnic spread alongside their pups. The serenity of the surrounding nature enhanced their intimate celebration, making every moment truly magical. I don’t think I have ever photographed such an adorable reception! Barkley and Aspen signed the marriage license as witnesses making it official and then the couple shared their first dance as their loyal pups watched lovingly.
