A Styled Mountain Elopement in Canada

From the photographer: Weddings at the heart of it, are most importantly about the bond between two people who are about to embark on of their greatest adventure of their lives. Sometimes, the simplest weddings are the most beautiful. When you realize all you need is the person you love, standing next to you. That is the real beauty. With the desire to be truly present with one another during your vows. No distractions from friends or family. Our couple decided to elope and be truly present for their special day. They hoped for an intimate and carefree ceremony, with their only distractions being the sounds of nature. A Styled Canmore Mountain Elopement A Styled Canmore Mountain Elopement

For the overall design, we allowed nature to choose the colours and tones for this wedding day. Drawing inspiration from the beautiful mountains of Canmore, Alberta and the turquoise river, the florals displayed a lovely combination of creams, ivories greens, and accents of dusty rose and sandy tones.

A Rocky Mountain Teepee Wedding

From the bride, Carey: Paul and I really wanted our wedding day to be about us and our love for each other. We’re both very introverted and planning a wedding ourselves was very stressful at times. We wanted to share our big day with family and friends because they mean so much to us, but we had to keep reminding ourselves throughout the whole process that it wasn’t about them and it wasn’t about making anyone else happy but us.

WHY OURAY, COLORADO
Ouray was a special spot for both of us separately before we even started dating – I liked the hot springs and Paul loves to ice climb. I said Ouray was one of my favorite spots in my Match.com profile and he totally picked up on that. It was one of our bonding moments. Since being together we have traveled to Ouray regularly and have decided we really want to move there someday. We are currently in the process of trying to figure out how to make that work, sooner rather than later. We almost instantly agreed that it’s where we should get married. It’s such a gorgeous little mountain town and we really wanted to share it with our family and friends.

THE FIRST LOOK
The first look was so special and important for us. It allowed us to take a breath, recenter and refocus on each other, and have a really profound and beautiful moment just the two of us, before heading into the blissful revelry of the wedding.

MY ADVICE
Have fun and make it about YOU and nobody else. Don’t stress the small stuff, but do as much as you can upfront so you don’t have to run around like crazy people on the days leading up to the wedding.

Breathtaking Rocky Mountain E-shoot

This magical Rocky Mountain engagement session from Ellen Ashton Photography was taken at Lost Gulch Lookout in Boulder, Colorado. The bride-to-be, Jana, is wearing a Lulu’s gown and the groom, James, is sporting the ever so popular Colorado hipster look. I think we can all agree that the views from this Rocky Mountain location are absolutely stunning!
