Colorado Winter Elopement | Brandi + Justin

Meet Brandi and Justin. 

They grew up in the same small town, in rural Texas but it wasn’t until spring of 2015 that they actually crossed paths. One first date and they both kind of knew this was it. 

Almost two years later, after repeatedly trying to plan “that perfect wedding”, they realized that the only thing that really mattered to them was to be able to spend the day together doing what they love. Queue their “we should elope!” revelation. And here we are. 

Their Colorado Winter elopement included a short hike into the beautiful Colorado foothills, them exchanging their vows in view of the continental divide and a romantic photo session of just the two of them. Sound perfect? It totally was.
