Jerrod and Heather were forced to elope in Colorado because their big wedding was cancelled back in Ohio because of Covid. They had just moved out to Colorado and weren’t going to let Covid stop them from having a special day! They reached out about doing an elopement with me when I mentioned I offered backpacking weddings as well.
I added backpacking elopements to my packages this summer because it’s one of my favorite summer activities and I was stoked when Heather and Jerrod decided they wanted to combine their elopement into a backpacking wedding. It takes a special couple to backpack into the wilderness for their wedding day and these guys were up for the adventure. It’s hard for me to complain when you can combine your passions into your job!
We went over a couple different routes before settling on an awesome 12 mile backpacking route in the front range of Colorado. We hiked up and held a first look that night before waking up at sunrise where they shared their vows with some mountain goats as guests! Backpacking weddings are so fun because it’s basically two photo shoots.
You get a sunset session followed by a sunrise portion. It’s really the best of both worlds for your wedding day. It was such an epic adventure and one hell of a back-up plan to a cancelled wedding!
