You might have asked yourself, “What if it rains during my elopement?” Well, you might be so lucky! That’s right, rain in Colorado typically enhances the overall aesthetic and mood of any given location and day. This blog intends to ease your mind if you have any apprehension about weather or concern if your day calls for rain. Of course, it’s still a good idea to bring rain jackets, hats, and umbrellas to keep you dry just in case! Sweet droplets add a charm and personality that only rain can provide.

Sometimes, the forecast will call for cloudy skies and the possibility of rain all day. What that often means at higher elevation is that it could rain at any given time, but it will be intermittent and not for prolonged periods of time. For example, the following images are from a day whose forecast looked iffy, but the rain was never any trouble. One umbrella is about what this called for!
Umbrellas, for the Win!
