Winter Elopement with frozen waterfalls in Telluride

Kerry and Randy first met back in 2013, five years later on a backpacking trip in Arkansas Randy proposed campfire side and completely knocked Kerry off her feet. The night of their engagement there was pouring down rain and their tent leaked, but the couple couldn’t have cared less – everything was perfect! When it came to picking out their elopement destination, Kerry and Randy agreed that Colorado was the perfect location for the intimate mountain wedding they both wanted. They also loved that in Colorado a couple can actually marry themselves in a self-uniting ceremony without anyone having to officiate or be there as a witness, known as a self- solemnization.

I met Kerry and Randy in Telluride for a late fall elopement that turned into a winter one! The Texas couple exchanged their vows in a field of gold surrounded by mountains and we took their bridal portraits beneath frozen Bridal Veil Falls, the highest free-falling waterfalls in Colorado. Long pillars of jagged ice dripping off the cliffside created a very majestic winter wonderland made for a stunning backdrop for the adventurous couple. Between the views, love and relaxation, the couple was more than content. A happy ending to a new beginning.
