Spectacular Sunset Elopement at Vail Wedding Island
Ashley and Grant's Vail Golf Course Wedding
Ashley, Grant, and I have had a long journey together. We started with an amazing Engagement Session in The Flatirons in Boulder Colorado. The excitement of the approaching wedding in October was so high! Then Miss Rona appeared and we had to scramble to reschedule and plan an amazing elopement in Vail. Led by an awesome planner Pam at Celebrations Event Planning, I think we pulled off the most fantastic Elopement photos!
The day started at The Sebastian hotel. Having fun with some getting ready photos, then capturing an emotional and exciting first look. Then spiking the ball with an awesome fireplace wedding portrait in the lobby of The Sebastian.
After that we left for the Vail Wedding Island at the Vail Golf Course. I had looked this place up to get an idea of what it looked like, and I tell you, photos do not do it justice. It was gorgeous.Sweeping mountain views from an island surrounded by water. It was a dream Elopement location. Plus, it was late in the season, so no golfers!
Everything went great for the ceremony. Ashley and Grant and their friends had so much fun and we captured some great elopement images. The only thing that was amiss were the grey skies hanging overhead. Ashley had wished for a sunset on her wedding day, and sadly the weather was not cooperating as a storm front moved in that was going to drop a bunch of snow on Vail the next day.
As if on que, the license was signed, the champagne was popped and just then the clouds split open to reveal the most spectacular sunset. We raced to grab as many photos as we could, not knowing how long the moment would last. It was magical and a moment we will all share forever.
As always, like, love, and share!
