Adventure Elopement Collection Sample Timelines | Field Guide | Learn

What do you picture when thinking ” Adventure Wedding”? What comes to your mind when someone shares their adventure elopement experiences? What do you feel when someone shares that they wore hiking boots and Yak spikes on their wedding day? Or maybe they hikes 10 miles to their ceremony spot in their wedding dress? What is that is so appealing to those who would rather get up at 2am, got their cup of coffee and hit the hiking trail just to say hello to the first light at 12,000 feet?

What clothes do you think they wear on their adventure wedding? What kind of wedding dress the adventure bride chooses to wear?

Do you picture carrying your tent few miles up the trail, cuddles by the fire place, camping overnight to experience the stars, and sunrise above the tree line? Do you picture the couples arranging their tent just under the stars?

What’s your cozy? Rolling in the snow….getting literally soaked….and still DO NOT CARE A BIT….Yep….that’s what the real adventure WINTER WONDERLAND FEELS LIKE.

If any of these rings the bell….then you came to the right place.

You are a mountain lover this might be your vision:

…alpine mountain breezy air, red rock walls, cascading waterfalls, lofty peaks, alpine meadows bedecked with wildflowers, bare feet dancing on the green grass filled with wildflowers, the windswept snuggles on the top of the world….sharing handwritten vows on a watercolored paper, the snuggles embracing each other to the rythm of love…

 

What is more sensual than this?

 

Now, it’s time to decide whether the all day adventure is something for you! Or maybe 5 hours is enough? My ADVENTURE COLLECTIONS are personalized to each couples’ vision.

Depending on your coverage chosen,  you can still experience the most intimate “first look” when you decide to elope.
Just you two, your love and connection…and most intimate moments celebrating your special day!
You hike up in your hiking attire…and slip your dress at the top pf the world as simple is that!
That’s why it’s so important to pick the wedding adventure dress and enough time for you to enjoy your moments.

Let’s look adventure wedding timelines for those who prefer to take back roads, ditch the traditions, and experience one of a kind adventure wedding, feeding your soul.

 

 

If All day adventure elopement collection sample timeline feels your big dream:

 

The laced up hiking boots sometimes covered in snow or mountain muddy tail, the hiking trekking poles, your wedding dress rolled in a hiking backpack, a heart full of LOVE, the tears of happiness on your rosy cheeks when you share your most unique moments of your lifetime just with your love at sunrise….when he plays guitar and sings that unique song he wrote just for you….that day is truly yours and only yours for unique adventure opportunities. Here is what it might look like…

 

3:30am: Getting ready at a cabin, I will meet you  at your Air B& B, you waking up all snuggled up…I will capture your little moments of snuggles..details…in bed…make up, hair, and packing up to head on out to adventure long the stars.
5 am: Drive up a mountain pass where you follow me.

5:30 am We start our adventure hike among the lit sky with Milky Way, headlamps on and ready for the best adventure hike of your lifetime. Chasing the light…throughout the blue hour and dusk..first light…we find YOUR” spot for intimate, just YOUR LOVE STORY VOWS.Or if we decide to adventure at Rocky Mountain National Park, the ceremony might be just a tiny bit limited since they only allow certain ceremony spots. But afterwards, we can choose a hike for more hiking adventures.

6:30am sunrise intimate moments followed by short breaks where you guys get to embrace each other. I simply never stop shooting so even we will be taking breaks through out and it might feel like we hang out, I am still documenting the details, moments of you two. Those in between moments  where my heart always longs for. They might feel silly for you, but I can guarantee those are the ones you will want to pint all over you home.

I will be constantly capturing your adventure hike travels, and all the details!

Depending on the location, always remember that the planned destination is never our goal. It’s the experience part, the moments along the way that make it very special.

11am: Start heading back to your cabin, since Colorado weather can be very temperamental, I love being able to be back at the cabin by 1 pm when the afternoon clouds cover the sky high in the alpine world in Colorado. They produce dangers storms and at that point my priority for you two is always safety.

3 pm: Drive back to the cabin, ceremony with love ones if chosen, and if we choose RMNP we will have to stick to the ceremony locations ONLY. A special wedding permit is a must for all RMNP weddings, elopements, vows renewals. Some locations are only accessible during the summer, Fall, months.
4:00pm: formal photos including your love ones
4:30pm:  Local Brewery and toasts by the campfire and maybe handcrafted dinner for just you two by the candles? Or catered dinner time to enjoy among the love ones prepared by a private chef, happy to recommend my favorites
and: good byes

This post is so useful! Definitely explains how to think about planning an elopement

Great tips in here and seeing everything on an actual timeline gives a great picture of how different elopements and wedding can be. The pictures are awesome. My favorite are the ones with the campfire.

Such a great article! I think a lot of eloping couples initially have a hard time understanding why they need more than just an hour of photography coverage. This really explains it all!

I LOVE how you added a traditional timeline for comparison, it really puts it into perspective how much more stress-free an elopement day can be!! Brilliant post and absolutely stunning photos!

Man, these images are all SO breathtaking.
I love them!!

Wow I love seeing the elopement timeline compared to the wedding day timeline haha!

Such a great blog post! It is super informative and thank you for taking the time to post! Definitely opened my eyes a ton!

This makes my wanderlust crazy strong. I love how well you documented real emotions and the locations that are clearly so important to your clients.

Oh man — the timeline at the end got me. Haha wedding days can be sooo nuts. Elopements are way more chill!

This was very informative and helps paint a wonderful picture of adventure weddings. So many dreamy photos too! <3
