Erin and John wanted to share a private day nestled in the mountains, which made Dunton an easy choice. On the afternoon of their elopement, John helped Erin into her dress in their private cabin. Enjoying every moment of the day together. We strolled down the dirt road to the town chapel, where they exchanged rings and heartfelt sentiments. Afterward, we stopped by the frozen waterfall and old library. They signed their marriage license in the original saloon where Butch Cassidy carved his name. How cool is that!? Once they made it official, we drove up the mountain to take pictures at 10,269ft. There was not a single person in sight as Erin and John frolicked in the open fields. Erin’s lace wedding dress and John’s maroon suit looked incredible against the fall landscape.
