Naomi & Brice

An Alpine Elopement

 

Durango, Colorado

Two Cajuns and an Alpine Elopement

Naomi and Brice decided to buck traditions and make their wedding day all about themselves, because that’s how it should be! They drove all the way from Louisiana to have their big day in the mountains. They wrote their own vows, prayed beside the alpine lake, and married under the needles of the San Juan Mountains.

The first look

Naomi and Brice did their first look at the trailhead at sunrise. They blindfolded themselves with keepsake ties next to a toasty campfire. They pulled down their blindfolds, tears and hugs followed.

The hike

A quick walk around the lake to find the perfect spot to say their vows.

The Vows

On the edge of an alpine lake with the Needles in the background. Naomi and Brice recited their vows with not another soul around… well except for the photographer!
