I felt like we were living out “Jingle Bells” yesterday as we took an open sleigh through the woods for Tera and Isaiah’s beautiful elopement ceremony! We met up at Snow Mountain Ranch and had a wonderful time playing in the snow and admiring the beautiful views that surrounded Tera and Isaiah’s ceremony.Our horses, Junior and Scotty dashed through the woods and brought us directly to the ceremony site. They chose a beautiful old homestead site within Snow Mountain Ranch’s property for where they would exchange vows and rings, it was the perfect backdrop for a quiet and intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family. Afterwards, we were greeting with cozy campfires, hot cocoa, roasting marshmallows and a beautiful sunset. Honestly, does it get any more amazing than this? What an incredible day, I’m so lucky to be a part of such magical occasions.

Ooooooh you’re in for a treat today! This snowy Breckenridge elopement warms my heart, I know it will warm yours too! Tyler and Chantelle live in Breckenridge and thought, “what better place to get married than right outside our front door?!” I couldn’t agree more, this was the most picturesque location I’ve come across for a winter elopement ceremony and it was literally right in front of their home. It was like something you’d see in a snow-globe. We had the peaceful Blue River behind us and the softly falling snow all around us and big majestic pine trees surrounding us. Chantelle and Tyler opted to marry themselves, so it was just the 3 of us without another soul around. Talk about peaceful.
I love how Chantelle embraced the crazy weather that she’s come to know and love in Breck. She didn’t complain once about being cold as we tromped through snow fields and forests together. I’m not sure if many of my out of state brides would be up for such a challenge! But Chantelle was the picture of strength and grace as she braved the storm with Tyler by her side to help warm her up. I’m so glad we were able to embrace the weather and use it to our advantage!

There are so many things I love about this engagement session!
First of all, Pat and Ali! They’re my quasi in-laws (Pat is my brother in-law’s brother…so does that make him my brother in-law too? Or my brother in-law in-law? Whatever, we’re related.) Pat and Ali are a wonderful couple who has been together a long time and I can’t wait for them to tie the knot this coming May! They’re just the kindest people you could ever ask for clients…or family members.
Second, Winni! Winni is their adorable puppy. She’s the sweetest thing ever and I may have taken more photos of her than Pat and Ali, but I’m pretty sure they’re ok with that. She had so much fun exploring fields and streams with us. She even got to go off her leash and explore a little bit on her own as we took photos. She’s such a good dog!
Third, Cheyenne Canyon! I grew up in this area of Colorado Springs and it’s so fascinating to come back here. It feels like nothing has changed at all, and yet so many things have changed! I spent soooo much time running around this area when I lived here. It’s cool to come back and see everything with a new lens.
Forth, the truck! Ali’s dad let us use his beautiful restored pick-up truck for a few photos in the canyon. I loooooove those photos so much! We used a beautiful wreath on the back of the truck to include a little Christmas charm for these photos. Plus, when you add Winni in the mix…it’s a perfect combo!
