We were so honored to host a gorgeous August mountain elopement for our beautiful bride Yolanda and her handsome groom Luis.  This sweet couple planned with us via email, and we instantly fell in love with them when they arrived on their wedding day.  Yolanda chose a color scheme of dusty blue and blush, and it was the perfect palette for this sweet summer elopement.  I had so much fun photographing the lovely details our bride and groom brought with them, including a sparkling hair comb, engraved ring box and personal vow books, which all added to the romance of the day.  Luis and Yolanda were joined by their family (some traveling from as far as California!!!) and surrounded by love as they said their vows to one another in a lovely outdoor ceremony.  We had a chance to take some beautiful photos on the grounds before adjourning inside for cake and champagne.  After an adorable bubble send off, we journeyed up to the mountaintop for some beautiful photos in the cool mountain air.  It was the most glorious day for a really wonderful family.  I am so excited to share some favorite moments from this special wedding day…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
