A Winter Elopement in Boulder, Colorado

Boulder Elopement Photographer

This time last year, I was capturing Christina and Carson’s adventure elopement. I captured wedding photos of them saying their vows, in the most picturesque place, with a few guests, and their pups. It was a chilly and windy day in Boulder, not an unusual January occurrence, but a bluebird day nonetheless which produced amazing photos.

Christina and Carson wanted something laid back and simple but captured in the place they call home, a favorite place for them. Christina’s words to me were, “As long as none of the dogs poop on my dress, I’ll be pretty happy.” 😉

Pairing fur with a dress is always a good idea in Colorado, especially in the winter. As a Boulder elopement photographer, I loved the simple yet elegant look Christina went for on her wedding day.

Despite the fact that it was just the two of them plus a few of their friends celebrating with them after we hiked into where the ceremony would be held, C+C both changed separately and snuck off with us to a private curve on the trail, where they saw each other in their wedding day attire for the first time.

Planning for a winter Boulder elopement? Tip: Nobody can even see (or cares for that matter) your shoes in multiple inches of snow so aim for comfy and warm.

Would it really be a Boulder elopement if the dogs weren’t there? As a wedding photographer, I LOVE photographing pups with their pawents. It often lightens the mood and reminds you to not take yourself too seriously and enjoy the moment.

Why Choose Boulder For Your Elopement

Boulder is a great place for an elopement or intimate wedding for a few reasons.

1. As of now, only one permit is needed and that’s for your elopement photographer and/or videographer. Actually eloping in Boulder (Boulder open space trails) does not require a reservation or permit. So unlike Rocky Mountain National Park, it’s a bit easier to navigate and you have more choices on your wedding day.

2. Many of the trails stay open year-round. You may need snow shoes or spikes for some of those trails, but snow or shine, you can access many of them, with the right gear and attitude.

3. Mountain views without the drive into Summit County or further. This is a big perk if you’re based in Denver or Boulder.

Hot chocolate for everyone to celebrate the newlyweds. Cheers to C+C!
