Destynnie and Elliot | A Colorado Hiking Elopement at Mayflower Gulch
Gorgeous mountains, snowy trails, micro-spikes, and toe warmers, were all part of Destynnie and Elliot’s true Colorado hiking elopement!
The Location for a perfect Colorado hiking elopement
There are so many amazing places in Colorado to elope, and one of my all time favorites is Mayflower Gulch! We started the hike in some freshly snow-covered trees. The snow was nicely packed on the trail and we only needed micro spikes for some extra traction. Snowshoe elopements are also super fun, but we did not need those for this particular adventure! Up in the mountains of Colorado, snow stays on some of the trails even through June. This is something to keep in mind when we choose a hike for your Colorado elopement! After we hiked through the trees for about 1.5 miles, we reached the opening in the valley. The amazing mountain views mesmerized Destynnie and Elliot! It was the perfect spot for photos! But first, they changed into their wedding attire!
Destynnie and Elliot carried their wedding dress and suit in their backpacks and changed when we reached the perfect spot! They got dressed and were ready for some fun in the snow! One thing that is clear about Destynnie and Elliot’s relationship is that they love to make each other laugh. The entire time we spent together they were so goofy with another! It was so fun to see their playful love. Since they got ready near each other they didn’t have an official “first look”, but Elliot decided it would be fun to see Destynnie through the window of the old mines.
For the rest of our time together, I took some photos for Destynnie and Elliot and also just let them enjoy being out on this absolutely stunning trail. They kept each other warm (Elliot even helped Destynnie put some toe warmers in her hiking shoes), danced, and had a sword fight with hiking poles! Like I said before, with their playful attitude towards one another, there was not a dull moment being around these two! I think when they look back at their photos, they will immediately remember all the love and laughter that filled their special day!
Your story telling of their day is done so well and I love the GIF at the end of the blog. Looks like such a fun Colorado elopement – congrats Destynnie and Elliot!
