A Mountaintop Elopement in Tucson, Arizona

From the photographer, Melissa Holland Photography:  Shana and Chris came down from Phoenix last October for their small, elopement-style wedding with their parents at Windy Point on Mt. Lemmon and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Chris is a climber and they have both spent lots of time exploring all the nooks and crannies of this mountain. And boy did he find the ideal/intimate spot for their ceremony. Tucson is known for it’s beautiful, sunny, cloud-free weather, but on this day, we had clouds, wind, and even rain. That didn’t stop this couple from having the most beautiful, thoughtful, gorgeous celebration on this mountain EVER! The sun was setting through the dark clouds as they said their “I Do’s” and cast a warm glow on everything. We escaped the rain for the ceremony and had just enough time for a few shots of the newlyweds before the rain came.

An Elopement with Mountain & Ocean Views

Ronnie & Aaron  |  May 21st  |  British Columbia, Canada

From the photographer, Karizma Photography: Ronnie & Aaron’s intimate elopement was full of romance. They designed a fun day just for themselves.

Ten minutes before the actual ceremony, Aaron got down on one knee and proposed to Ronnie.  Later he explained that they were so in love that they always talked about wedding. Then they decided to get married and talked just about their big day. And at some point, he realized that he even did not asked Ronnie if she wanted to become his wife.  That was the sweetest moment ever. We have never had a chance to photograph a proposal 10 minutes before the ceremony! KarizmaPhotography0106 KarizmaPhotography0107 KarizmaPhotography0108 KarizmaPhotography0109

From the Magazine: A Mountaintop Elopement

Kristin & Chance  |  May 26th  |  Asheville, North Carolina

From the bride: Our story began in high school. Not quite a Hollywood story, but nonetheless, I got to marry my high school sweetheart. Chance and I met when we were freshmen in high school. It wasn’t until two years later that we realized our friendship was a little more than we expected. We realize it’s a bit unusual to marry your “first love,” but, for us, it just worked. He has been my best friend since, and I do not know that anyone can make me laugh like he can. Our relationship has always been a little bit spontaneous, and we never felt the need or want to have a traditional wedding, which is why we decided to elope.
