Destination Mountain Elopement | 3M Curve RMNP

Rocky Mountain National Park is an amazing place to just be. Whether you’re sight seeing, hiking, or exchanging vows, I’ve found very few places that are as pretty. Most of the time I’ve spent in Rocky Mountain has been in the summer.  I’ve explored both west and east sides of the park, Trail Ridge Road, Bear Lake, Sprague Lake and so many other areas, but until Melissa and Dusti’s destination mountain elopement, I had never been to 3M Curve. I knew it would be beautiful, but I had no idea just how beautiful.

As a late May elopement, I had anticipated mild temperatures, grassy fields and maybe even a few wild flowers. Surprise! Colorado wins again. A few days before, after completely melting out for the season, Rocky Mountain National Park was hit with OVER FOUR FEET OF SNOW. Luckily for Melissa and Dusti, the storm passed the day before, and we were blessed with bright blue skies and sunshine.

This destination mountain elopement was simple, intimate and absolutely perfect. Thank you, Melissa and Dusti, for braving the snow with me, climbing icy rocks and trusting me to document this awesome day for you!
