Rachel + Jake // September 1st, 2019 // Della Terra Mountain Chateau

When we received this little gift of a photo gallery in our inbox our jaws dropped! The photos by Mason Neufold looked straight out of a Martha Stewart publication! With the light and airy tones, true colors, and not to mention all of the floral close-ups - we are so grateful to have partnered with Mason for Rachel and Jake’s beautiful Estes Park wedding day! Check out the list of incredible vendors at the end to see who helped make the truly magical!

Here is a wonderful note from our lovely Bride, Rachel.

‘We are high school sweethearts who beat the odds! We were both raised in Colorado, so we both knew getting married in the mountains would be perfect. Jake attended The United Sates Military Academy at WestPoint and graduated in 2017. I went to Regis University and got my bachelors degree in Elementary Education. Jake proposed to me while I was studying abroad in Ireland. He spent his short, four day Thanksgiving break traveling across the Atlantic to ask me THE question. After two and a half years of planning, every detail fell into place. I loved seeing how our team of vendors created my vision. My color palette was inspired by a combination of light summer colors (blush, white, greenery) and an added proof Burgundy since it was Labor Day weekend (almost fall). I knew I wanted to bring out the natural mountain beauty with lots of greenery in my bouquet and on the arch. I wanted everything to be very classic, timeless, and romantic. It truly was a perfect fairytale. Every detail from the written vows to petal toss and to being surrounded by our most special people in such a special space made the day one we will treasure forever.’

Elopements - and what makes them so magical!

It is a courageous decision to travel to your favorite spot — just you and your loved one and your trusted photographer to recite your vows and elope to celebrate your love in such an intimate, yet adventurous fashion! We love elopements because guess who still gets to make an appearance? Flowers! Bouquets, boutonnieres, and hair flowers are still a part of the beautiful day and we couldn’t be more grateful!

”The surge of elopements in the last several years has been the best and most inspiring thing for me as a photographer. Elopements inherently allow for a level of intimacy that is often more difficult to achieve when you get swirled into the vortex that is a traditional wedding. Elopements allow you to focus time, money and creative energy on the pieces that are most important to you. And that energy goes a long way when you are creating a smaller celebration. I often hear folks regretting spending so much energy on a big wedding, but I never hear anyone regretting grabbing the person they love, a photographer, some beautiful flowers to sneak away to a beautiful location to start their marriage adventure.” - Cassie Rosch

Maddie Mae from Adventure Instead —” As a professional photographer with years of experience capturing every type of wedding you could possibly imagine, I’ve consistently found myself unabashedly drawn to elopements. Personally, I choose to devote myself, and my business, to helping couples who seek intimacy, intentionality, and meaning on the day they choose to pledge their lives to each other— and for so many couples out there, a traditional wedding just won’t give them that. I’m not anti-big wedding whatsoever, above all, love and marriage win in my book—no matter what they look like. I just firmly believe that when a couple is making that incredible decision to choose each other forever, the day they do that should look and feel as authentic and true to themselves as possible. The reason I choose to capture elopements is because everyone is different and every couple deserves to know that the brave decision to choose each other doesn’t have to make them uncomfortable, stress them out, or put them in awkward positions.

I capture elopements because for every extroverted couple out there craving a big, traditional wedding, there’s an introverted couple equally as passionate about having a day that’s entirely focused on the just the two of them. I can tell by the look in a couples eyes when they’re standing there—under the milky way in the desert, atop a snow-capped mountain, or beneath a powerful waterfall—saying “I love you, let’s do this thing together forever,” that they’re doing it the way they want to. I capture elopements because everyone’s idea of their perfect wedding day looks different.

I want Adventure Instead to be that safe haven—that solid foundation that couples can build a wildly different wedding experience on and know that what they’re choosing is more than just OK—it’s perfect. I want us to be the guiding light for adventurous and introverted couples, leading them toward the day they’ve always dreamed of, and nothing less. Because when you really think about it, marriage itself is this beautiful, epic, wild adventure that two people are choosing to embark on together. If I can be someone who guides a couple toward the perfect way to start that adventure together, that’s all I’ll ever need.”

Thank you to Cassie and Maddie Mae and all of the incredible photographers for capturing the love between all of our fantastic couples who decided to elope! Like a photo you see? Click on the image to be directed to the photographer behind it!

Laura + Paul // September 15th, 2018 // Piney River Ranch, Vail CO

You know the feeling you have when you meet someone and you feel like you’ve met them before? The conversation flows effortlessly, laughs are endless, and the collaboration between style and art is an absolute breeze. That was Laura for us! As soon as we met her and fell in love with her impeccable style (I mean seriously, just wait to see all the pics) we knew in a past life we must have been flower-power-babes together! Between her unique and amazing color palette, textured florals, beautiful, awe-inspiring mountain backdrop, and the genuine love between the newlyweds — we just couldn’t wait to share!!

Thank you to the following impeccable vendors, for making Laura and Paul’s day an unforgettable one!

To Piney River Ranch for the serene backdrop, Callie Hobbs for capturing the incredible day with her flawless, artistic style, Victoria from Banks and Leaf for the attention to detail that the day went off seamlessly, and thank you to Little White Dress Bridal for providing the stunning gown by Anne Barge!
