Love is a remarkable force that knows no boundaries. It transcends all obstacles and unites hearts in the most extraordinary ways. It was an absolute honor and privilege for us to capture the intimate and intentional gay elopement of H and I. A beautiful couple who embarked on a journey of love, commitment, and togetherness. As we reflect on their extraordinary day, we are humbled by the boundless nature of their love. It was absolutely and utterly limitless!
H and I’s love story began with a simple swipe right on Tinder. I was instantly drawn to H’s quirky bio, where he humorously mentioned his search for a partner who could “open jars for me.” It turned out that H too found I absolutely adorable. Their first date at a vegan restaurant in LA sealed the deal, and the rest is history.
Exploring Nature’s Splendor
For their Airbnb gay elopement, H and I wanted to immerse themselves in nature’s grandeur with their fur babies Basil and Booch. We scoured the picturesque locations of Breckenridge to find the perfect spots that would complement the essence of their love story. Day one took us to a trio of breathtaking spots in and around Breckenridge. We explored Hoosier Pass where the sweeping mountain peaks beckoned our adventurous spirits. The crystal-clear waters beneath the majestic peaks at Blue Lakes made for some truly magical and jaw-dropping moments. Lower McCullough Gulch is a hidden gem nestled among towering pines and babbling streams that made for adorable and intimate portraits. Each location represented a unique facet of their relationship. It was a testament to their love that they wanted to incorporate these stunning landscapes into their elopement.
The Day Before The Elopement
The day before their Airbnb gay elopement, Breckenridge gifted H and I with a glorious burst of sunshine and a balmy temperature of almost 70 degrees. It was a perfect moment for their couple’s portrait session, as the warmth of the sun mirrored the warmth of their love. Surrounded by the majestic beauty of Colorado’s mountains, we captured their endearing smiles and the undeniable connection between their souls.
The Unpredictable Elements
On the day of H and I’s elopement Mother Nature, had a few surprises up her sleeve. She decided to surprise us all with a CRAZY blizzard! A whopping 18 inches of snow fell, transforming Breckenridge into a winter wonderland. We had originally scheduled 6 hours together on their big day, but due to the impending blizzard, we decided to split their time over two days! Their limitless love allowed them to hurdle this obstacle that Mother Nature put in their path!
Elopement Ceremony Site
The original ceremony site was going to be outdoors, and we moved it to the top floor of the Airbnb where the family was staying. It turned out to be a gorgeous ceremony space with floor-to-ceiling windows that provided plenty of natural light. Afterward, there were toasts, celebrations, and dinner downstairs. I even handmade the cake topper, which was a wooden model of him and his partner in their elopement attire!
One thing that stood out during their planning process was their understanding of the importance of flexibility when it comes to outdoor elopements. The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable, and they wisely chose a place to stay that not only offered breathtaking aesthetics but also served as a backup location option. Thanks to their foresight in choosing a beautiful cabin nestled among the pines, we were able to seamlessly transition to capturing their elopement ceremony in the comfort of their cozy Airbnb. The cabin provided a visually stunning backdrop, adding an intimate touch to their elopement story. H and I’s experience serves as a reminder of the significance of flexibility in planning an outdoor elopement. By choosing a place to stay that is aesthetically pretty and can serve as a backup location, couples can ensure that their love story unfolds flawlessly, regardless of any unexpected circumstances.
The Intentionality of their Day
What made H and I’s elopement so extraordinary was the intentionality behind every decision they made. Every detail was infused with their personalities, creating an atmosphere of authenticity, love, and deep meaning. They fully embraced the unexpected and imbued their special day with love and magic! And throughout it all, H and I were absolute troopers. Their love and laughter warmed our hearts, even in the midst of a winter storm. We couldn’t have asked for a more incredible couple to work with!
“Meg & Kevin are AMAZING! Throughout our entire small wedding elopement, including planning and the days prior, they were super responsive, had a plan for everything, and had such amazing suggestions! They always made sure we felt comfortable and were super thoughtful. Kevin did exactly what we wanted as an officiant, speaking briefly yet eloquently. Overall, we’re thrilled with the photos and the entire experience. We couldn’t recommend them enough!”
